Tatoosh Posted January 12, 2012 Posted January 12, 2012 (edited) I was just down in Manila and visited the Mall of Asia. There is a kitchen gear shop there called Living Well, on the 2nd floor outside (not in the air conditioned inner mall). They have lots of Lodge cast Iron, some better quality stainless cookware, Wilton baking pans, plus Breville and Cuisinart small appliances. So for us food lovers, its is kinda nirvana, though Rustan's Dept store is pretty good place to thin out your wallet too. I try and limit my visits to once or twice a year so I don't end up living on hotdogs and beans (or dried fish and rice).The Cuisinart ICE-30 Ice Cream Maker grabbed my eye. I have the ICE-20, very similar but not as nice as the ICE-30, both require you to keep a bowl in the freezer (up to 24 hours ahead of time). Not a big problem since I have a small chest freezer to store it in. But it does mean I have to refreeze it each time, so multiple small batches doesn't work so well. The ICE-30 is a better unit, though it does have similar drawbacks. Still it should be good for you guys in the lowlands that want a better quality ice cream without paying for Haagen Dazs. I didn't get a price on it because we were pressed for time but it probably won't be nearly as cheap as the US model. It was, however, 220v so no adapter/step-down transformer necessary.I love good kitchen equipment and I've got burned on stuff here that simply didn't peform (like the last citrus fruit juicer at SM Appliances) so when I see good gear, I get excited! And I love ice cream, so I thought I'd share a good store to get a maker at.
