It doesn’t get much sweeter than enjoying an ice cream on a hot summer day. In fact,  the average American consumes more than 23 pounds of ice cream per year according to the International Dairy Foods Association.

That can add up to a lot of money, especially if you eat more ice cream than average, but having a home ice cream machine can reduce those costs this summer and for many more to come. Plus, making your own ice cream can be a fun family activity. 

Not sure which one to choose? We’ve made that job a little easier with the top 15 best-selling electric ice cream machines on Amazon.
