Pros: large capacity, frozen tub fits down into unit, lots of recipes, easy to use, takes less space in cupboard than older model
Model Number: Pure Indulgence CIM-60PC
"Easy to use. Adjusted recipe to accommodate my Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) and made much better ice cream and yogurt than my old Cuisinart ice cream maker. Like the fact that most of the frozen container sits DOWN into the unit instead of on top. Seems to freeze better than my old unit."
Cons: disfunctional unit, arm attachment really flimsy
"Was looking forward to homemade Icecream since Hubby is a big fan. Wanted to make some healthy version so bought the machine. Put washed bowl in freezer for 24 hrs, next day tried to make icecream. The machine started out okay and then all of a sudden a much louder noise and then after 15 minutes, stopped! Well, switched it off, no overheating... tried again after a few minutes, that was it, slush for icecream! Tried one more time the next day. Did the same thing; stopping after a few minutes before completing process. I'm not into replaccement but look for a better machine! So to Costco we return!"
"I love this machine. I have already made about 4 batches and it has worked great thus far. The first recipe came out slushy, but it was totally my fault. I messed up the recipe. I beleive that most people that get bad results with this machine are just not following the recipe correctly or their freezer is not cold enough. I can see how easlily it is to over cook the milk/egg mixture or if you're like me missed the part about cooling of the batch in the refrigerator (not the freezer) BEFORE putting it in the ice cream maker. This product is working great. It's just a matter of finding a recipe that you like, that's simple to follow and you must have patience. It is worth it in the end!"
"I would say this is a great ice cream maker everything was easy,just follow the simple instructions. Some say that this unit is noisy, but I never notice anything out of the ordinary for an appliance with a motor. Any when it dose make a sound as if its churning hard, its time for the ice cream to be finished. I would have rated it a 5, but, this being my first ice cream maker I had nothing to compare it to.I'm about to make my second batch soon."
Cons: keep bowl in freezer or plan ahead to freeze bowl
"This is my first experience with an ice cream maker and I love it. Easy to use and clean. I keep the bowl in my extra freezer so it's ready anytime. I've made so many ice cream and gelato. Still trying to master the different recipes. Excellent way to indulge in ice cream in a more healthy and natural way."
"Super easy to use and clean. Delicious and creamy ice cream in less than 35 minutes. My husband and I have used it at least 10 times since buying it a few months ago and it works perfectly every time. The ice cream comes out smooth and creamy. My daughter loves it and so does the rest of the family. The whole process of ice cream making it's easy but takes a little more than a couple of hours, since you must first mix the ingredients to make the ice cream base and then refrigerate it for at least 2 hours before putting it in the ice cream maker. Great purchase."
"GREAT LITTLE EASY ICE CREAM MACHINE. NO ICE OR SALT NEEDED. IT IS A CLEANER APPROACH. THE PRICE WAS GREAT. THE 2 I JUST PURCHASED ARE FOR CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR MY CHILDREN. PLUS I WILL GIVE THEM THE SPECIAL RECIPES I HAVE CREATED THIS SUMMER TO GO WITH THIS."
"First, this is the first time I ever ordered online from Costco and I have to say it was a great experience. (though I wish they had it in stock at my club!) I did a fair amount of research on ice cream machines and settled on this. Nobody came close to the Costco price even with shipping (online or brick and moarter stores.) Shipping was fast and I was kept well informed of its processing. As to the machine, it works well. Have made three different recipes in the last 2 weeks since I got it. The noise that some have complained about was about what I expected and it was not really objectionable. Cuisinart included some great recipies. I only wish they included more! (of coure there are hundreds on the net) Works as advertised and is certianly eaiser than rock salt and ice."
Pros: making organic "icecream" at a fraction of the $
Cons: need freezer very cold for canister to work right
Model Number: CIM-60PC
"Works wonderful for making own soy and/or coconut milk "icecream". Due to dairy allergies we only buy soy/coconut/almond icecream and it is very expensive. Bought this to try to make it cheaper than buying it. Save about 1/2 the money and love all the flavors we can do! At first only got "milk"shakes, but then after some research discovered my freezer was not cold enough and things are wonderful now!"
"This thing works exactly as advertised. We've made plain vanilla, strawberry and a wonderful Nutella recipe. All were perfect. Takes 25-30 minutes and produces soft-serve consistency ice cream. Place in another container overnight, end up with good, solid, perfect ice cream. Rinse and refreeze the bowl right away, you can be ready for another batch very quickly. This is everything we hoped for."
Pros: makes good ice cream (when it works), quick, ease of use, portable
Cons: buy the more expensive model for better quality
Model Number: CIM-60PC
"VERY disappointed with this purchase. I already had a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker (ICE-30BC) that was purchased online which looks identical, except for the color. Operation of both machines is identical as well but the cost was half as much at Costco. Well, you get what you pay for! We loved our first machine so well we wanted a second so we thought the Costco version would be a good buy. Even bought another to put away as a Christmas gift. Used it the first time and the motor almost immediately started to bog down. Tried it again another day and the same thing. Returned it to Costco and decided to try the one we bought as a Christmas gift. The motor didn't sound as "strong" but worked ok. Upon the third use the motor quit altogether 10 minutes into the freezing. The motor in the 'discounted' Costco version just isn't the same quality despite the fact they look exactly the same.
We've decided to just keep the bowl from the Costco machine as a backup and throw out the useless motor unit. A second bowl purchased directly from Cuisinart costs the same as the whole unit from Costco. I'm hoping the bowl itself isn't substandard as well.
If we get another machine we will get the more expensive version and not cut corners on the cost. In this case, you're paying for a better quality and more durable appliance. I will not try the Costco version again after twice having problems."
Pros: looks good on the counter, makes a great product, easy to use, fun for one or the whole family (and friends)
Cons: noisy as every one seems to agree, freezer bowl must be really frozen longer, flimsy beater/mixer gizmo, too easy/tempting to fall off your diet, store bought won't ever taste as good again!, should have come with a second freezer bowl, a different model number no difference in machine, lost a star to the noise
Model Number: ICE-30BC/CIM-60PC
"The machine is noisy, no doubt, but the fun of making different, fresh and pure food frozen desserts at home can't be beat. The kids love it even if they do get impatient with that "long" wait. The recipes available on the web seem to be unlimited. If Costco was going to change the model number there should have been some difference between this and the ICE-30BC, a suggestion would have been a second freezer bowl included.. The machine works very well if you follow the instructions but freeze the bowl a bit longer (24hrs) and you won't go wrong. Enjoy!"
Pros: easy to use/clean-works great=healthier ice cream
Cons: a little noisy
Model Number: CIM-60PC
"Our family loves to eat ice cream but, i'm alway's concerned about the things we put in our bodies. I bought this machine to make healthier ice cream without a bunch of "stuff" and preservatives. This machine works if you follow the directions. I have made 5 batches of ice cream and it works great every time. It's a little noisy so I put it in a different room and set a timer. Everyone agreed, we love our ice cream maker. It's so easy to use and clean up is easy. I leave the bowl in the freezer so it's alway's ready to make a fresh batch."
Pros: simple to use, easy to clean, not a space hog, only 3 pieces/parts (base; lid; and mixing hand), sleek looking stainless steel finish, clear easy to follow recipe directions in booklet
Model Number: 2 Quart Pure Indulgence
"I was hesitant whether this was worth getting and whether I'd really use it, but after two other friends personally recommended it I got it from Costco because they have the best price of anywhere I could find. I have now had it for almost a month and have made at least two batches of ice cream or gelato every week (even though it's fall!). My husband LOVES every flavor I've made thus far (and he's picky). My two suggestions are 1) Be sure to COMPLETELY freeze the bowl before using. I made my first batch after freezing it for about 8 hours, and the second after freezing it about 12 hours, and neither was long enough (which made the end result too liquid-y, but was still fine to eat after I put it in a container to freeze afterward). I thought maybe that's how it would always turn out, but by the third time, the bowl had been in the freezer for about 2 or 3 days and then the ice cream came out ready to eat right away. And 2) Start with an easy ice cream recipe first (there are lots of ice cream recipes in the accompanying booklet and it truly is really easy to make). I made the raspberry gelato as my first venture, and while it turned out delicious, I must say I don't think it was worth all the extra work to prepare the mixture (which included pureeing the fruit first in a food processor then through a sieve and then cooking a confectionary mixture to a certain temperature using a candy thermometer... I mean, c'mon!), and it kind of got me off to a bad start, thinking this was hardly "easy." But once I got going with the ice cream variations (and learned to freeze the bowl much longer than anticipated), I was pleased to find it really IS simple. And, while it makes a half gallon in every batch, the appliance is not really big or very tall; I found a corner on my counter, under the cupboards where it fits unobtrusively, and I always keep the bowl in the freezer so that I'm ready to make ice cream anytime!"
Pros: 25 minutes and a yummy spoonful of ice cream!
Cons: no auto timer!
"This makes great homemade ice cream-the texture is that of home made, not store bought. I can see why people want it to be like store bought but when you make it at home, the soft texture is what you get. I noticed that I needed to thoroughly chill the bowl for three days (wimpy freezer) to fully chill. It was completely frozen after one day but through experimentation this was not long enough. We made wonderful vanilla, and coffee ice cream. Followed the vanilla recipe exactly, and the coffee we winged it with a shot of espresso! Yum. WE LOVE this unit, and are so happy that we beat the sold out blitz of 2012. Word of caution: go easy on the half and half called for in recipes as these can get way too creamy. Over the top creamy. Buy this wherever you can, it's great. It is noisy (like a mini-vacuum or dryer, not bad). Leave it in the kitchen and go to another room. Easy fix for 30 minutes."
"Dont bother with this one. I have other cuisinart products which are great but they missed the mark on this one. Looks great and great accessories but doesn't work worth a darn. It'll make great slushies or milk shakes, but not ice cream!"
