ya se destinan a algo incluso más interesante, es decir la preparación de helados caseros

se les ha sacado un mayor rendimiento / más partido


Explanation:
Yo aquí, a pesar de "better", no capto la idea de 'mejor', sino de 'más' (que a su vez en este caso se traduce en una mejoría). Es decir, entiendo que la mejoría radica en que antes sólo se empleaba para una cosa y ahora para dos. Saludos
