- I Wish I'd Bought This Sooner!
Highly recommended! I LOVE this ice cream maker. It's so easy and the results are amazing. I like GOOD ice cream (like Haagen-Dazs)and this machine creates stellar ice cream. It rivals any of the best ice cream you can find. Even the basic recipes produce excellent ice cream. I've made mint chip, premium vanilla bean and strawberry. I do recommend using quality dairy products for best results (I use Organic Valley milk and heavy cream). Sorry, Haagen-Dazs. I won't be buying any more ice cream from you!...more info
- Great Idea!
I saw the use of a similar (bigger more costly) machine on an episode of Martha Stewart. After researching, I decided from reviews to order this ice cream maker. We love it!!!!! So far we have been only making sorbet, but I've bought ingredients to expand it's use. I plan on giving 3 more of these are wedding, birthday and Christmas gifts in the next few months.
We keep the bowl in the freezer and chill the mixture before we put in the machine. We have made some incredible strawberry sorbet several times. Easy to use, clean and is not very loud at all.
Anyone who hates fooling with ice and rock salt will love this ice cream maker!!!!...more info
- Fun for the whole family!
This is so nice to have with kids because we all love ice cream! We have fun mixing it up a bit with trying new recipes! Super easy and easy to use! I read the reviews before I bought this and I have to say I agree with all of the other positive reviews! I highly recommend this product for everyone! Also excellent shipping from Amazon! Thank you!!!!...more info

- Cold vanilla soup...
Was so excited to receive my ice cream maker. Froze the bowl for 2 1/2 days and chilled the custard overnight. The mixture never thickened up or froze at all. What a waste of money and cream....more info
- Worth every penny!
I've had this item a week now and made 2 batches with it. I am in love. The recipes are simple (I used the Ben & Jerry's book) and the quality outstanding. It's a little loud, but nothing like the old fashioned makers. It's easy to clean and the ice cream is absolutely divine. My leftover ice cream has been perfectly awesome coming out of the freezer too, so leftovers are not a problem! I think this machine is worth every penny paid for it. I will not be buying store ice cream again!...more info
- best for the price
Best for the price, by far. I do recommend purchasing a second freezer bowl so you can make a second quart right away (w/o waiting several hours for the bowl to refreeze.)...more info
- great ice cream
This ice cream maker is so fast and easy to use. You don't have to mess with ice and rock salt but you still get the old fashioned taste. A recipe book is included and the recipes are very good. We have been experimenting with low fat versions using less cream and the result is very good. Buy the extra bowl and keep two in the freezer. That way you can make two different flavors or be prepared for more guests....more info
- makes great ice cream, etc
Having lots of fun and adventures making great ice cream. My hubby loves the mocha recipe in the booklet that comes with the machine. I am getting one for each of my grown children for their anniversaries.
- Cheap Plastic Paddle
The cheap plastic paddle broke on the first batch of strawberry ice cream. I am now upgrading to a Lelo.
If I had it all to do over again, I would never have bought this!...more info
- The BEST Ice Cream: Easy-to-Use, Easy-to-Clean Product at a Great Price!
I'd give this 5 stars, if Amazon would let me...
I got this Cuisinart when I rationalized to myself that the Amazon credit card enrollment paid for most of it.
Never again will I have to rationalize! This little machine, which is not loud, makes the BEST ice cream I've ever tasted!
Why go back when you can have your favorite flavors in an hour and 20 minutes (an hour to freeze and 20 minutes to combine the ingredients in the machine)?
I highly recommend buying the Ben & Jerry's ice cream recipe book with it. So far, we've made Chocolate, Rocky Road, Mint Jo-Jo (with Trader Joe's Jo-Jo's -- far better than Oreos!), Vanilla, and Coffee with fudge. I can't decide which is my favorite!
This is a great product! If you're going to eat something fattening, why not have it be the best? It's economically-sound (much less expensive than buying fancy ice cream from the store), it's quiet, fun, and very easy to clean. Great for parties or kids, or friends, or to practice inventing your own recipes. What's more, you can make frozen yogurt and still have it taste better than anything store-bought!
Be sure to keep the inside freezer bowl deep inside your freezer (after making and removing ice cream) so you can have it ready to go whenever you want fast, fresh, absolutely divine ice cream of your choosing!...more info
- Works as expected
This product works great, if the unit kept in the freezer for long enough, the consistency of the ice cream gets very good. It's easy to clean as well. I bought an ice cream maker so I could use organic ingredients, and everything has turned out fantastic so far. I have no complaints....more info
- Great little machine
This is a great little ice cream maker. Its fast to use and very easy. I just wished I had got the bigger one so I could make a bigger batch of ice cream....more info
- Ice Cream maker
I bought one of these a couple of years ago for myself, and my son-in-law goes crazy over my ice cream so this Christmas I just had to get him one. He loves it! It is so easy to use, and he's already gotten much more creative with his recipies than I ever did....more info
- Dangerously Delish
I bought this for my son for his birthday. Wow, is it easy and delicious. A person could be in real trouble with this ice cream maker sitting around.
We first made the vanilla recipe and it was better than wonderful...just a few ingredients into the bowl and away you go. Fat City is on the horizon. I love it. Thank goodness my son lives 1000 miles away or I would be in real trouble with this little machine. The price is good and the ice cream is wonderful. Wonderful gift. ...more info
- Good buy.
I was very happy with this machine. The only suggestion I would make is while the icecream is still a little soft if you dont eat it all scoop it into a container to put in freezer. Its hard to get out if you keep the leftovers in the freezer bowl it double freezes. Otherwise It works well. Im looking forward to trying some new recepies....more info
- Best Ice Cream You Will Ever Taste
I really love this ice cream maker. There is nothing like having fresh homemade ice cream in less than 30 mins. We use it several times a week for all types of ice cream, sorbets and iced treats. The only drawback I see with it is that you can only make one flavor of ice cream because the bin needs to re-freeze for 8 hours before you can use it again. So it is one flavor at a time for this machine. Other than that, it is easy and fun to use. Great cleanup! A little noisy but hey, it is an ice cream maker. I would recommend this to anyone I know....more info
- Ice Cream Cookbook Authors Machine of Choice
I'm the author of Lick It! Creamy Dreamy Vegan Ice Creams Your Mouth Will Love and this is the ice cream maker that I use. It's easy to use, makes great ice cream, is fairly quiet. I've had it for about 5 years and have made a LOT of ice cream with it and it's still going strong....more info
- An excellent maker for the value minded.
Assuming one has realistic expectations from such an inexpensive appliance, they will be very happy with this ice-cream maker. Sure it isn't the fanciest, the bowls take up a lot of freezer space, and it certainly isn't quiet; but it makes a good amount of delicious - consistently textured ice-cream, is gentle enough that you can use almost any ingredients you like, and is simple to clean (even by hand if, like me, you lack a dish-washer). Assuming you have the freezer space to keep one of the bowls prep'd you can go from zero to enjoying excellent soft serve in about 30 minutes. Overall a great product.
NOTE: For most of the recipes I've tried, this machine produces ice-cream of a consistency akin to soft serve. Very tasty in any-case and things harden up nicely in the freezer if you have time to wait. But those wanting to serve cones right from the machine may be forced to make very small batches to accommodate this models limited ability to quickly freeze....more info
- easy but fattening
this ice cream maker is easy to use and clean up - the only problem is that using whole milk, half-and-half, or real cream is very fattening, but it tastes so much better than what one gets at the market and the texture is excellent! I have to watch myself and not get too carried away and also, give at least half of each batch away!...more info
- Makes great vegan ice cream
My mom gave me this ice cream maker as a Christmas present a few years ago. My husband and I are vegan, so we were really excited about creating new vegan ice cream recipes. (I eventually started compiling them in my blog, A Vegan Ice Cream Paradise.)
We've never had a problem with the machine. Every recipe I've invented has frozen nicely. I keep the bowl in the freezer all of the time, so I can make ice cream whenever I feel like it.
I do wish that the plastic covering/shield thing was dishwasher-safe, because it can be a pain to clean, especially when I'm using a high-fat coconut milk. Still, it's not too difficult, and the reward (awesome vegan ice cream) is worth it....more info
- It works
Not as noisy as I expect: quieter than a blender but noisier than a nice newer dish washer. It makes ice cream as it should. The freezer bowl maintains its temperature well. If you are making less than 1 quart ice-cream, the bowl can handle at least 2 batches without re-freezing the bowl again.
Cleaning is easy, everything goes into the dish washer and the bowl I wash it right away by hand and put it back to the freezer. ...more info
