Hi wildoats, have you bought the 407 model yet? Went to check it out on SaniServ's website. Looks like it'll be good for home use (even for cafes and small restaurants) but I kind of don't like the way it looks. All stainless steel and boxy. I don't have an ice cream machine yet but I am planning to get one. So far, my coffee maker and popcorn maker are all in vintage style so I'm thinking of going for the White Mountain Ice Cream Maker. It's got a wooden bucket finish. You can opt for the manual one (if you really want to go vintage), but of course, electric is the way to go.
