Customer Reviews:

  • Sweet little machine!
    Looks great on the counter (I bought the red one), easy to use, quick clean up. You can whip up a batch of ice cream in less than half an hour with just whipping cream, half and half, sugar and vanilla. Throw in some cookies, fruit, or candy for an extra treat. Great value!

    Note: this appliance comes with a recipe book so no need to go out an buy one right away. Use the real vanilla. The imitation has an ingredient that will keep the ice cream from freezing....more info
  • Mine broke the first time I used it
    All you need to know is that mine broke the first time I used it. The clear top didn't fit on the base and when I went to dismantle the inner arm it broke in my hands.
    It may have been defective. I don't know. But, I certainly wouldn't recommend it....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
  • Fabulous!
    I got this ice cream maker for my husband, an avid ice cream lover, for Christmas. However, neither of us had made ice cream before and weren't sure that amateurs like us, or a relatively cheap machine such as this one, would make quality ice cream. Boy were we wrong! Making delicious ice cream with this machine couldn't be easier. The machine is easy to assemble and easy to use. You need to keep the bowl in the freezer for at least 8 hours before using the machine though, so you can't make one batch right after another.

    There are many ice cream recipes floating over the internet, but we use a very simple and delicious ice cream base that never disappoints: one can of condensed milk, one can of evaporated milk, one can of regular milk and 2 eggs. We mix this up in the blender or with a beater, and jazz it up with vanilla, almond extract, or whatever liquor we have on hand and pour it into the machine. Twenty minutes later, depending on the type of ice cream we're making, we add nuts, cookie dough, caramel, fudge, marzipan, etc. The possibilities are endless and the result is always delicious.

    I've tried a variety of recipes and after 30 minutes in the machine the ice cream is still on the soft side. I store it in a plastic container with a tightly fitting lid and stick it in the fridge, and it soon acquires the consistency of regular ice cream....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
  • 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
  • Will Not Have Store-bought Ice Cream Again!
    I love this product! Initially, I was a bit skeptical about it. The first time I used it, I did not wait for the freezer bowl to completely freeze (there was still liquid swooshing around) since I was too excited--not a good idea! Anyway, the next couple of times were very successful. I was so pleased with my custard-based ice cream. If only I had a bigger freezer, I would get an extra freezer bowl so I don't have to wait for hours to make more ice cream. I'm in love with it! You can't go wrong with this affordable product!...more info
  • So glad I ordered this!
    Makes wonderful ice cream very quickly! I have made chocolate and vanilla and chocolate heath bar ice cream. I bought the Ben and Jerry's ice cream and dessert book when I bought this and they compliment each other well!...more info
  • Like Java Chip Ice Cream?
    This machine makes fantastic Java Chip ice cream, just like the commercial brand. Rather than spout about how great this contraption is, I'll instead give the recipe:

    2 cups whipping cream
    1 cup whole milk
    2/3 cup sugar
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 tbsp instant coffee
    1 2oz. Hershey's Special Dark candy bar (or dark chocolate slab of your choice) (this is optional -- I like it just as much without the chocolate)

    The trick to making the best ice cream is to make sure all the ingredients are chilled before you mix them. So, first warm the milk and mix in the instant coffee (it won't dissolve in cold milk). Then chill the milk.

    Chop the chocolate bar in small chunks, then chill it. Chill the sugar. Chill the mixing bowl (I use a quart measuring cup for easy pouring). Chill the spatula and/or whisk. Chill the bowl you'll use to hold the finished product (I cover it with a plastic wrap first). You get the idea.

    All chilled? Mix them all (except the chocolate) together, whisk a bit to combine well, then pour into the ice cream maker. Run for 25 minutes. Pour in the chocolate chunks and run five more minutes. Yummy!...more info
  • Excellent Investment
    I purchased the Cuisinart ICE-20 Automatic Ice cream maker about six weeks ago. I wanted to make my own home frozen yogurt. I had been going to a local shop for years. The price just kept going up and up. It reached a point where it was ridiculous for a small frozen yogurt. So I went to Amazon and started reading reviews on various home ice cream makers. This one had the most favorable reviews. Now I have not made ice cream in it yet but I have had wonderful success in making nonfat and sugar free frozen yogurt. I couldn't be more thrilled! I use store bought nonfat plain yogurt, about a cup, a frozen banana, about a cup of pineapple and stevia for sweetness if it is too tart. I put that all into the blender and blend until smooth and straight into the ice cream maker. It takes about 15 minutes and viola! I have a much healthier, more affordable frozen dessert. Any fruit would work, I am looking forward to summer to start experimenting with peaches and strawberries, the sky is the limit!
    Before I bought it, the reviews were very clear that my freezer needed to be just around zero degrees, so I got out a freezer thermometer and made sure it was. I froze the canister for 24 hours before use, and keep it in the freezer at all times in a plastic grocery bag. Do be careful with metal instruments, they will scratch the interior of the canister. I found this out after someone else was finishing up the most recent batch left on the counter with a metal spoon.
    Clean up is fast, it freezes the product quickly, it is quiet, has a small footprint- I love it.
    One of these days I might splurge and make the real thing with cream!

    Enjoy...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
  • Bad deal
    I bought this and it was great for about 5 uses. Then the canister cracked and a foul odor came out. Liquid with a chemical odor leaked out all over my counter from the bowl. I sent it back for replacement and 3 months later, still no replacment bowl. They claim it is on backorder....more info
  • Heavenly
    I received this item for Christmas. I wanted it so I could make more natural ice cream without all those additives. I used a simple recipe from off the web: Some whole milk, condesed milk, and cocoa powder. At first it was a failure because I only froze the container for 5 hours. It didn't swish when I shook it, so I thought I was good to go. After nearly 2 hours I just had cold ingrediants. I put them in the fridge and froze the container overnight and restarted in the morning. After only 30 minutes I had some of the most amazing ice cream I have ever had. I will never buy ice cream from the store again. This ice cream maker is awesome, I love it....more info
  • I love it!!
    I love it! it is all it says and more. I use it 2-3 times a week. Infact I bought a second and gave to a friend....more info
  • This Cuisnart Ice Cream Maker is a wonderful product!
    I've always loved ice cream and there's nothing better than homemade ice cream. However, it's always been a lot of work and time consuming to make it from scratch. Not with the Cuisnart! I couldn't get over that the very first time I used it, I had delicious ice cream in 20 minutes. In fact, it was not soft and/or runny...the consistency was just perfect! And, it kept that way in my freezer until the last of it was had. So, now I make sure to keep the bowl in my freezer at all times so that I am ready for making delicious ice cream at a moment's notice. ...more info
  • Great Ice Cream Maker!
    Ice cream from this machine is PERFECT, you can tell by the taste that it has no additives!
    Your freezer does need to be colder than usual to actually freeze the bowl (I had it cold enough to freeze water, apparently not cold enough to freeze the bowl until I turned it waaaay down).
    I experimented with a French Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, a custard based ice cream, first time making any kind of ice cream and it was a huge hit with my husband's friends, I can't wait to try every recipe I can find!...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
  • Ice cream maker
    I bought this as a Christmas gift for my daughter-in-law as she
    requested it on her Christmas list. ...more info
  • Perfect for the small batch and not that noisy!
    I purchased this machine after reading all of the reviews and am very satisfied with it so far. I (like others) leave the bowl in the back of my freezer, wrapped in plastic. I only pull it out when I am ready to pour in the chilled ingredients and 25 or so minutes later, there is a wonderful (nice and small!) batch of ice cream. It is perfect for me as I have diabetes and 1.5 quarts is the perfect size for a few occasional treats. I don't have to stare at a huge half gallon of ice cream every time I open the freezer. Plus I can control what's going in it; make it lower in sugar or even sugar free to fit my special diet. I most recently made a mexican chile chocolate ice cream (recipe from Rick Bayless--Mexico, One Plate at A Time and I cut the sugar way down) and it turned out great. I have also made a berry sherbet and plain old vanilla. My consistency has always been a pretty firm soft-serve at the top with a definite scoopable firmness at the bottom and I stiil pack it up and put in the freezer to set like I would with the ice and salt-type machine. I must say that I didn't seem to find the noise level to be all that bad. It is a machine and it's going to make some noise but my machine is relatively quiet. After what others were saying, I was expecting something much worse. It certainly is an improvement from my Rival 4-quart that uses ice and salt--which is very loud! I would recommend this machine to those who like to make their own and who know that what they're going to get in the end is a soft serve texture. If you are looking for the harder, scoopable, ready to put on a cone type of texture--you would be better off just buying it in the store. Even the fanciest of machines will still end up giving you varying degrees of soft-serve. In any case, it is worth it: home-made ice cream is the best!...more info
  • Bowl will not freeze. You will only get cold milk and cream.
    I bought two of these machines (after failing to get the first one to work, I returned it and bought a second maker) - both bowls failed to freeze.

    How it works: you freeze the bowl until the liquid inside it is solid. If the bowl does not freeze, you will get a soupy milk and cream mixture. I could not get either bowl to freeze (even after leaving the bowls in the freezer for over a week). All I got was the soupy mixture. I even set my freezer to the coldest setting. On that setting, the "store bought" ice cream was so cold I could not get a scoop into it. Yet the bowl to the cuisinart was still not frozen. My guess is this is Cuisinart's worst product. Needless to say, I had to return both ice cream markers.

    I have asked others, who also bought and used this product, for their opinion. All but one had the same problem.

    Making ice cream is a great idea as you can control the ingredients that go into your ice cream. Too bad this ice cream maker doesn't work very well....more info
  • Fun new "toy"
    This product is easy to use and makes you into a great ice cream maker at first try. ...more info
  • Terrific Homemade Ice Cream
    I purchased this ice cream maker a few weeks ago, and it's a hit! My husband says he's never had ice cream as good as we can now make at home. The unit is easy to use, clean up isn't a problem, and the resulting product is excellent. No messy ice and salt to contend with. Just keep the freezer bowl in the freezer, and you're ready to make ice cream anytime....more info
  • Really Good For the Price
    It takes a little practice to get used to what works and what doesn't with this Ice Cream Maker. For the price though, it is really good. I messed up my first few recipes by over filling the thing. Eventually, I was making my own delicious ice creams and sorbets. So much fun during the summer! My kids were thrilled! ;) ...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
  • Very impressive results. Very easy to use and clean!
    I just received my ice cream maker two days ago and immediately put the freezer bowl to freeze, so that I could make some ice cream the next day. I made the basic vanilla ice cream and was very impressed with the results. I mixed the ingredients in a separate bowl, turned the machine on and poured the mixture in... set a timer for 30 minutes... and surprise... great texture, awesome flavor. A breeze to clean. So far, I am very happy with this machine. Reminded us of Breyers ice cream, which is our favorite brand... Highly recommended!!!...more info
  • Makes GREAT ice cream!!!
    I was introduced to the Cuisinart Ice Cream maker when I visited a friend's house. It's super simple to make, in which our kids (age 3) actually made it. I never thought I'd buy an ice cream maker--another gadget that takes up kitchen space! But when I had one taste, I went out that night and ordered one! We made vanilla, chocolate, and pumpkin flavored ice cream. The fresh taste is outstanding and beats any store bought brand. I also recommend the Ben & Jerry's recipe ice cream book. We got the pumpkin recipe out of it and it tastes like you're eating pumpkin pie...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
  • 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
  • Easy, Healthy Ice Cream
    Wow, with Ice cream cartons shrinking and being priced at around $8/(per former gallon) I was looking for a cheaper way to get ice cream/ frozen yogurt. My husband and I tried it by just putting two kirland peach lowfat yogurts and were amazed by the outcome. In 30 min we had lowfat frozen yogurt. We have even ventured into trying the nonfat, splenda vanilla yogurt and added frozen blended food and were very impressed by the results. I would recommend this appliance. We look forward to what else we can make!...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
  • If you love ice cream, you really should get one of these
    The Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker really is a toy. There. I said it. You combine the ingredients in a bowl and pour them into the Maker which stirs and freezes. Can you make ice cream without a Maker like this? Yes. But why would you want to?

    I keep my bowl in the freezer all the time and take it out when my ice cream muse hits me with a new concoction or an old favorite. I mix everything up and pour it in and my work is done.

    There are many ice cream flavors in the freezer section at your local grocer, but this is complete freedom. Make what you want and if it doesn't taste good, try something different next time.

    The ideal situation would have the ice cream ready to be eaten after its time in the Maker, but that isn't the case. So you have to either anticipate your cravings by about 24 hours or learn to keep some on hand at all times!...more info
  • terrific little machine
    I got the machine on thursday and made my very first icecream ever on friday.I don't understand people who are shocked and upset that the icecream is soft from the machine. It is SUPPOSED to be. You have to put it in the freezer to harden more. My icecream had vanilla and kahlua in it and was still ok. It came out velvety and delicious. I am looking forward to making many varieties of icecream and alot of fruity sherbets. Also, the noise level is not bad at all. One person writes that it was unpleasant to listen to during dinner. Hello!! Make the icecream BEFORE dinner so it firms up and there is no disturbance at dinner. Where do these people come from? Buy the machine. You will love it....more info

    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
  • A Trip to Chilly Heaven in About 15 Minutes
    So much garbage gets put into commercial frozen treats. Now we just make our own frozen creations and let me tell you...what an improvement! Ok, so here's another reason to like it; just make what you need for the moment and then you don't have a diet-breaking, convenient carton in the freezer to raid at midnight. Next, it doesn't only freeze cream. Lately we are freezing Trader Joe's 2% Plain Greek Style Yogurt with some organic sugar or agave nectar and vanilla mixed in. A lot fewer calories and fat but it tastes excellent. It's really different from commercial fro-yo.

    If you want to make enough for more than 6 people at one time then I would suggest getting something bigger, or a second freezer bucket, but the size is just right for 5 or 6 people.

    You need one of these. Go ahead....more info

  • The best ice cream maker I have ever purchased.
    This is the best ice cream maker I have ever purchased. I read the reviews before buying and learned a lot of helpful hints. I put a small zip lock bag full of ice inside the freezer bowl and then put the freezer bowl inside a big zip lock bag and then put the bag in my freezer. As a matter of fact, after the ice cream is made, if I don't get the ice cream out of the freezer bowl before we get it all ate, it even hardens up more. ...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
  • Easy ice cream, with some advance preparation
    I own both the Cuisinart 1.5 quart ice cream maker and the KitchenAid KICA0WH Ice Cream Maker Attachment, both of which make excellent ice cream, although this Cuisinart, as a special purpose appliance, will appeal to a broader range of people simply because the unit is self-contained.

    The Cuisinart works without salt or mess; the bowl walls contain a liquid that, when frozen, becomes extremely cold, enough to freeze a cream/custard base to soft serve consistency. (More on that later.) For the machine to successfully work, the bowl must be placed in the freezer at least fifteen hours in advance, and the mix must be refrigerated for a minimum of 12 hours, preferably at least 24 hours. Unless you store the bowl in your freezer and use a non-cooked mixture, you won't be able to make ice cream on the spur of the moment.

    The machine is fairly noisy, much like the earlier electric churners that used salt and ice. But operation cannot be easier. Simply insert the paddle, pour in the mix, attach the top, and start it up. In 20-30 minutes, depending on the butterfat content and beginning temperature of the mix, you have soft serve consistency ice cream, sorbet, frozen yogurt, or sherbet. To improve the flavor and consistency, the frozen dessert should be ripened in another container for at least 2 hours in the freezer.

    The biggest drawbacks to the Cuisinart ice cream maker are its relatively small size, especially compared to the KitchenAid attachment, and the way a portion of the ice cream freezes solid to the sides of the bowl, thus creating some waste. Of course, you can always take a sturdy non-metal utensil to it to sample it right away. You'll have to let the bowl thaw some before hand-washing. None of the parts are dishwasher safe, although all are a breeze to clean once the bowl loses its extreme cold.

    If you own a KitchenAid mixer, you might want to check out the attachment, but you really can't go wrong with the Cuisinart. Fresh ice cream has never been easier.

  • Great Ice Cream
    Makes great ice cream 30 mins and your done. Use heavy cream and hole milk for high quality ice cream. Good or better than Breyers...more info
  • Nothing but good
    I was a little hesitant because some reviewers talked about the freezing tub being fragile or the sorbet being too soft or it being too slow. I strongly disagree. I have used this beauty for dessert 4 or 5 nights a week since getting it over a month ago. I mix up the ingredients and put them in the refrigerator to thoroughly cool, then put the freezer together and pour it in. 10 to 20 minutes later, it's ready (depends on exact mix). If you think it's too soft, you're not used to home-made ice cream! The outside of the freezer tub is not metal, but I don't think it could be with the material inside it which has to expand. Obviously you have to be aware of that. The interior of the tub is stronger and I use my plastic ice cream scooper and hard plastic spatula to get every drop of the goodies every time. This is a champ. We've probably made enough homemade goodies already to pay for it if you think about how much we would have paid for that much ice cream or frozen dessert....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
  • I love this thing!
    This is a great little machine. Without the hassle of using ice or salt, you're always ready to whip up some homemade ice cream! I've made variations of vanilla, eggnog, lemon, cinnamon, dulce de leche, and others in this. This machine makes ice-cream making SO much fun. I highly recommend this!...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

  • In a League of Its Own
    ... that's how we rate the ice creams, sherbets and ices we make with this machine. There is NO comparison to store bought in terms of quality.

    YOU control what milk, eggs, and sweeteners you add. YOU control how much fat you use. The flavors of freshly made ice cream are wonderful. AND, you can create your own flavors that no US company makes!

    We have had a Cuisinart Ice Cream maker in our kitchen for 20 years -- are on our second machine, and wouldn't be without one. Have not had purchased ice cream in our house in all that time. It's the best!...more info
  • Takes a trial run or two, but awesome when you got it!
    I LOVE frozen yogurt. red mango, pinkberry is where I go frequently, but at $5-6 per cup and money getting tight.. This $40 machine started to look better and better. So I got one exclusively for the frozen yogurt.

    I want to add a bunch of tips for frozen yogurt:

    -Wrap the freezer bowl in a bag in the freezer! Or else your yogurt will stick to the side and get inconsistent texture in yogurt.

    -It is best to follow the recipe exactly as is. I tried the "well i'll just cut the recipe in half for the yogurt/milk/sugar.. The time spent in the machine will be off, and you'll have to monitor it exactly to get the timing down.

    -The recipe calls for 2 cups yogurt. Don't you dare get yo-gurt or the flavored junk. The type of yogurt will make or break your results.

    After a few trials, I found this is best in duplicating RedMango/Pinkberry:
    Use 1 cup FAGE greek-strained yogurt (no flavor, stronger, tangy)
    Use 1 cup BROWN COW Vanilla yogurt (more creamy + flavor)
    Regular Milk & Sugar as per recipe amount.
    --- Check mixture after 20min, don't wait for full 25min, machine can jam ---

    -Some people put a lid on top of the machine. DON'T USE a plate, the vibration could cause it to fall off and shatter the plate (yea learned hard way). i taped a plastic lid as a cover (safer)...more info
  • Carefree ice cream!
    I bought this machine for my husband following the recommendations here. Consequently I also bought him the extra freezing container and two books of recipes,one being the Ben and Jerry's book. So far he has produced several excellent batches of ice cream. We are delighted and impressed! It's so easy and so much fun!...more info
