Rated 2 out of 5 by ivon Simple to use, easy to clean.
I have had this unit for over 2 years. I would use it more often but I am not satisfied with the consistancy of the ice cream once the churning time is up. The dasher leaves a hard frozen ice cream around the walls and in the bottom of the bowl that is difficult to get off. I have to use a hard plastic spatula to chisel it out. While the interior of the bowl is not yet frozen to the soft ice cream consistency. This constitutes a mess when transferring the frozen ice cream to a container. I used to own an old fashion model that uses chipped ice and rock solt that produced superior ice cream.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mdo55 Very, very disappointed.
So frustrated with this machine: third attempt now, still getting hard rock layer on the sides, and soupy centre. Very poor design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kisa Very happy with it!
I purchased it 3 weeks ago, and I can't stop to use it. Ice cream is delicious and I know exactly what I put there. The taste like the best Italian homemade ice cream.
You just need to read carefully instructions and choose right products (for example, you have to use whole milk, and not fat reduced one). Make sure that your freezer works properly and set it to the temperature indicated in the instructions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dragonfly79 good product
This is fun and easy to use. The ice cream turns out a bit soft, so you have to freeze it right away. I have also noticed that when taken out of the freezer the ice cream melts very quickly. There is nothing better than the taste of pure, simple ingredients found in making your own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vmouse super product and so easy
This is so easy and makes the best ice cream..Just pour in the liquid and turn it on, its that simple. You can have home made deserts in twenty minutes. Any liquid you want to use freezes in minutes with no mess, No ice , no salt . I have recommended it to all my friends.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sam817 Was very disappointed
I kept the freezer bowl in the freezer overnight. I had made my ice cream the night before so it would be chilled. I let the macine run for 25 minutes and it hadn't thickend so I left it running for another 10 minutes, it still had not thickend. I was very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sweetvanilla This product is very user friendly
I love this ice cream maker. It's so easy to use and makes great ice cream everytime. It only takes minutes to make and easy clean up. I've learned to keep the tub in the freezer for at least two days before making the ice cream so that the ice cream isn't too soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MusicMom08 Best purchase ever
I love this machine. I had a 5 quart old fashioned type ice cream maker that finally bit the dust. I decided to try the Cuisinart Ice 30...I absolutely love it! I've used it 3 times within a month! Makes wonderful ice cream!
