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!"
Pros: looks nice, pretty quiet, good recipe book, easy to use, easy to clean
"So far I've used it twice. Vanilla and Chocolate.
Vanilla: I used the low heat coconut milk and egg in a pan custard recipe. I let the custard and the cylinder chill over night. Next evening was go time; I turned the machine on and poured in the custard. In 20 mins it was still very soft so I let the machine run until it looked firm. About 40 mins total and we were happy with the texture. Could have been put in the freezer but it was gobbled up
Chocolate: I completely cheated and probably screwed things up here. FIRST off I didn’t have the machine running when I poured in the chocolate mixture. The sides of the cylinder got WAY TO COATED! The machine labored but still continued turning. HOWEVER the “cheat” was I didn’t use an actual recipe. I just tossed a chocolate coconut milk drink box in. Probably to much water in this to turn into ice cream so at end MY FAULT.
The only reason I took a star off is for texture. The ice cream never really gets very stiff. You’ll have to put it in a separate container and put it in your freezer. I’m not that picky especially when coconut ice cream is $7 for a tiny pint. It’s a great little machine. We are pleased!"
"The only one I've ever owned but I still know it's a good one and would recommend getting one because: you'll have ability to customize your ice cream selection and home made is way better than bought. we will probably never make it in volume so we may have been just as well off with 1 1/2 qt to save storage space."
"Have been using this almost everyday. So far my favorite flavor to make is banana. I was so happy to find that I can use silk milk, and even silk milk light, with some half and half, fresh bananas, vanilla, and splenda, to make a delicious and refreshing treat."
"The machine is good - works well and easy to use. It is loud but we just plug it into another room so it doesn't bother us. I have made several receipes from the book and they don't taste very good. The Gelato didn't turn out and the yogurt didn't taste good. Not the machine's fault. It's hard for me to recommend buying the machine when I prefer store bought ice cream at this point because I can't make anything that tastes good."
"I must disagree with practically all of your other reviews of this product. It definitely requires a lot of prep work and dirty dishes prior to even beginning the machine process. When one says automatic, I think of a bread making machine: put the ingredients in and away it goes. This machine requires that ingredients are mixed separately, outside the machine, and you even have to make room in your freezer for the mixing bowl. Beware, NOT AUTOMATIC."
"My family enjoys ice-cream as a dessert so I purchased the Cuisinart. My first ice-cream recipe was a coffee flavored ice-cream and every one in my family tells me its the best coffee ice-cream they have ever had. I like the idea that I know what's in the food that I prepare for my family. Will truly enjoy making good ice-cream with this machine."
"I really like this. My favorite basic recipe is 1 cup cream, 1 cup 1/2 & 1/2, 1 cup milk, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 vanilla bean. I add 1 cup add in and in 20 minutes it's done and WONDERFUL! My wife likes sweet cream ice cream, no vanilla or add ins. I like macadamia nut as an add in."
"This machine makes homemade ice cream dangerously easy! We have a traditional ice and salt machine for times when we need a big batch, but for 1 - 1 1/2 qt. batches, this baby is great. I agree with other reviewers that it certainly isn't quiet, but the noise is really no louder than a hand mixer. If it starts to get to me, I can find something else to do for the short 25 -30 minutes it takes to process. The recipes I've used so far have turned out just fine. Perhaps one trick for getting a good result is making sure the ingredients going into the freezer are well chilled.
We just let the canister "live" in the chest freezer, so we're ready to roll when the urge strikes."
"I'm glad I purchased this Ice Cream maker. I was doubtful after reading some of the negative reviews. But I must say the Ice Cream maker works just as advertised. The first batch was a little too soft because of my mistake. I didn't freeze the can long enough. The second and third batch were perfect. Better than Dairy Queen's soft service ice cream."
"I've used the machine only once and I loved the result. I used the vanilla ice cream recipe in the instruction/recipe booklet included with the machine. In 25 minutes I had delicious soft-serve ice cream. Overnight in the refrigerator freezer resulted in hard ice cream. Even better. The volume produced is perfect for six people. If you want to serve more than that after making only one batch, you'll need a bigger machine. The noise is tolerable. Well worth the Costco price."
"I was dismayed that the product description did not contain the details of heat removal from the mix poured into the bowl.
I was pleasantly surprised that the source was the capacity of the bowl itself to store "freezing capacity". (I had envisioned mixing salt and ice). How can you get refrigeration from a reasonably priced machine?
I am satisfied with the product and look forward to using it more often.
I used to be the manager of an Ice Cream plant in Northern NJ."
"I have had a hand crank ice cream maker and an electric one that both used ice and rock salt. Such a mess! This is sooo much better!! I made sure I tried both sorbet (thanks for the pineapple recipe) and several ice creams before I passed judgement. Last night I made the simple vanilla ice cream and added crushed oreos...delicious! Every one has come out perfectly....soft, creamy, and wonderful. Can't imagine why it didn't work for those who didn't rate it well unless they got a defective unit."
