One four-star comment came from a reviewer who said that the Gaggia Gelatiera ice cream maker was a solid and reliable machine and that she could not find any reason to be disappointed with her purchase. However, she did underscore a couple of drawbacks, namely that the appliance was somewhat difficult to clean and that the recipe booklet supplied with the ice cream maker did not contain a sufficient number of recipes. She suggested going online to find additional recipes.
Overall, the Gaggia Gelatiera ice cream maker received mainly five-star reviews with any negative comments directed toward cleaning the machine or the recipe booklet. Some reviewers felt that the small pamphlet-like publication was somewhat deplete in the number of recipes it contained.
