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!"
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."
