This mode has a fundamental design flaw - the motor that turns the paddle site son top of the machine and is fastened by two plastic lugs. When the ice cream gets stiff the motor starts to reverse but in doing so it tends to jar against the plastic. Twice I have had the plastic lugs break off meaning I needed to replace the plastic top. After using this for only a few months I've had to replace it with a Gaggia Geltier which is much better.
