"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."
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."
"I just got this as a gift and made my first batch. Tried the peanut butter cup recipe and it is wonderful! VERY easy to use. I did see an extra freezer bowl online if looking to make more than one batch in a day."
"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."
Cons: it is loud!, louder than metallica playing live at your house.
"I read the reviews here about this being loud, and of course I thought people were exaggerting. This maker is so loud that I cannot tolerate being in the same room when it is on. Good thing it only takes 25 to 30 minutes to make ice cream.
Nosie aside it is easy to use and produces a nice sorbet or ice cream."
"Quick, easy and delicious ice cream in 25 minutes. I would suggest mixing all the ingredients in a separate mixing bowl first and then pour into the machine's ice cream bowl. I do not find the machine overly loud as some have suggested - it is much quieter than the old machines that used ice and salt. The ice cream does tend to rise out of the top of the machine, but never spills over and it is a soft serve type ice cream. We love it and make ice cream every weekend. I have given several as gifts and everyone loves them."
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!"
"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."
"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 purchased this ice cream maker as an early fathers day gift...our neighbors have an ice cream maker...but they are moving away, which has forced us to get our own. this ice cream maker rocks! no ice, no salt, no nonsense! you just need to remember to freeze the bowl the day before... so far my husband has used it once, and the ice cream was the best homemade ice cream ever! this was a gift that is benefiting our whole family"
"We've had this machine for several years, use it often, and it has never once failed to make the best ice cream. Perfect everytime! It's so great, that I'm purchasing another one so that I won't need to wait for the bowl to freeze to make another batch of a different flavor, and I can make everyone happy at once! Overall, it's cheaper to purchase a new machine, than to purchase just the Freezer Bowl..."
"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."
"Made my first batch ice cream using Ben and Jerry recipe. So easy, took 25 mins to make ice-cream, great texture and great flavor. I think that the key is to have a good refrigerator to freeze the bowl well. The only thing I wish to improve is to add a timer. But for the price, I am very happy about this product, and I will never buy any ice-cream from store."
"Thought it would be a good gift for an Ice Cream Lover! This exceeds our expectations. It seems the unit is being used a minimum of once a week. It far exceeds our expectations and brings great delight to my inlaws."
"It works. You can make yummy things & impress your friends --high fat, low fat, whatever. If you're going to eat or drink something bad for you -- it might as well be good. And, you may as well make it in this quantity and have it to share or store. Best thing I've done for myself in years ..."
"I recently purchased this ice cream maker and have made a couple of batches of ice cream with it. There is just no comparing home-made ice cream with store-bought. The flavor took me back to my childhood! Just make sure you freeze the bowl completely before making your ice cream. Adding to my enjoyment, there is no need to buy ice or rock salt or make a huge mess. I'm looking forward to trying some of the other recipes for gellato and sorbet that come with the ice cream maker."
