by patricem Love my Cuisinart ice cream maker
After 15 years of heavy use I wore out my elderly Cuisinart ice cream maker. Replacement was easy - same brand, same style, new color (watermelon!).

When I unwrapped my Cuisinart Ice Cream Machine I found a crack in the base about an inch or so from the gear. Looks like a pressure crack and doesn't seem too serious so I haven't returned it. I used it for the first time tonight and the ice cream was delish! Only problem...and I followed the recipe to a "T", was I set the timer on the stove to let the ice cream blend for 20 min. I should have stood there towards the end and kept an eye on it because...the ice cream swells up and it had run over the top of the freezer bucket and all down inside the machine and all over the counter. It was a mess!! Now I looked at it when it had about 5 min left to go and it was fine..so that last 5 min was the culprit, (directions do say 15-20 min) but besides the mess the ice cream was heavenly. I made the Fresh Strawberry flavor. Can't wait to make the Butter Pecan. I bought my granddaughter one of these for Christmas and couldn't wait to get my own!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by muffin11399 Make ice cream all year round Quick & Easy!
With 5 teenage children this gets a lot of use! We have had this machine almost a year and we use it at least a few times a month. Great conversation and active family involvement after a family dinner.
Use the quick recipes for after dinner desert while you clean up the dishes. Within 1/2 hour you have a wonderful dessert by itself or on the side with birthday cake. I have also made many homemade sorbets with fresh fruit and summer ripe fruits. Add any combo and you have your own creation! We haven't made anything we haven't gobbled up!
Keep the inside freezer bowl at the ready in your freezer for dessert any time!!
We have had a lot of fun with this simple to use high quality ice cream maker appliance !
Keeps the teens close to home and their friends love to visit to create some new concoction.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lijax Easy to use
This is my first ice cream maker so there was a little for me to learn. For example, the canister must be in the freezer for a minimum of 16 hours to be able to make ice cream. But I have already made a few different flavors already. Easy to use, love the recipes and looking for more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by McDonna Great for Frozen Yogurt!
My husband & I love frozen yogurt. We were spending too much for commercial fro-yo in the premium boutique places. Saw this online & after reading the reviews decided to go for it. We have already saved way more than the cost of four trips to any fro-yo store! Found some great recipes online that I can make easily at home. The finished product is better than what we purchase out, without the garbage the stores put in their "healthy" "natural" fro-yo. No sucralose, maltodextrin, high fructose corn syrup, gelatin, fillers or stabilizers - just real, delicious, probiotic-rich frozen yogurt. Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stnbrook9 Great way to have fast ice cream with unique flavors
I love banana ice cream and can rarely find it. The recipe included with the machine for banana ice cream makes a delicious treat. I had trouble the second use trying to get the paddles to fit and figured out that you have to make sure the freezer unit is completely dry prior to freezing or you get a coating of ice on the bottom that throws the fit off. (Remember you have to be smarter than the machine, duh.)
Otherwise, it was on sale and I had a coupon so the price was right and the opportunity for unique flavors works for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by icecreamlover very convenient
Growing up having homemade ice cream (hand cranked) I wanted a simple way to make my favorite treat. Though it doesn't make the ice cream very hard, it still does a reasonable job and I've had excellent results with some of my old recipes.
