Rated 5 out of 5 by Dhicks REAL ice cream!
My husband said, "for $300+, you better be making ice cream a whole heck of a lot!". It is super heavy so it's not very portable (I was thinking of bringing my machine over my friend's house so her kids could make ice cream but decided against it) & it needs plenty of storage space BUT I'm having so much fun with it. It's like having gourmet ice cream in your home when you want! I'm still playing with my base (dairy base vs coconut milk base) but I've already made roasted cherry & chocolate chunk, mint chocolate chip & banana gelato. Love them all. Even the husband is putting in his request. It's very easy to use & there is very little prep work involved.
Rated 5 out of 5 by vinniep Well worth it
I'm very pleased with this machine. It's ability to make batch after batch is the real draw.
This past week my daughter and I made four different flavors in under two hours. We've only done ice cream thus far but can't wait to make gelato and sorbet.
Rated 5 out of 5 by eajk Enjoying Ice cream's richness restored!!!
I received my Cuisinart Ice cream Maker several weeks ago. My first batch was Butter-roasted almond vanilla and I must say my ice cream buying days are over. In an hour I had the most delicious ice cream ever--better than bought....The noise that came from the compressor was minimal, and worth the wait; instructions were east to understand....also, well worth the money. At today's ice cream prices, unit pays for itself in no time. After doing further reading, I found our that I could make ice cream that was low/no sugar, fruit gelatos, ....This past holiday weekend I tried my hand at mint chocolate chip...WOW!!! Rich, creamy, absolutely decadent!!!.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mjhmjn Love this!!
I absolutely love this machine! I also like the added convenience of being able to make ice cream whenever I want rather than have to plan ahead like with the freezer bowl models.
The finished product is so much better than store bought and rivals some of the higher end ice creams, like Haagen-Dazs.
Rated 5 out of 5 by websterlover Very easy to use!!
Bought this right before Thanksgiving. All you do is pour the ingredients into the included pail & turn on. 40-50 minutes later you have ice cream! I just followed the recipe (from the book that's included) & I had ice cream. This machine makes ice cream, frozen yogurt, gelato & sorbet. No mess, no fuss, no trouble. The unit is completely self-contained! Yes, it's a bit more expensive than others', but if you love frozen treats like my family, it's worth every penny. You can control the ingredients, too! It is rather heavy, so I'd find space on the counter, plus it needs some room...not a tiny thing. All things considered, I love it!
