Pretty Kid Girl Heart Floral Print Leggings Review
Amazon Buyer: My first three batches of ice cream from this machine got rave reviews from guests and family: a rich, creamy dark chocolate try out turned into ice cream truffles which the dinner guests snarfed; a nutty coconut put Baskin-Robbins chemically, oversweet version to shame - the guests inhaled it; and a Valrhona chocolate ice cream has made grocery store ice cream unappealing to the family. Simple recipes work fine. Cold mixing turned out as good a product as heating then cooling.Pros: This Cuisinart ICE-20 is quiet enough to run in the kitchen/dining area while we are eating. It is easy to set up, use and clean. It turns out a nice product - good enough to serve guests. We like being able to have ice cream with less sugar and no chemicals. It is entertaining to watch the process through the clear top opening.Cons: The plastic scraper/turner doesn't fit the bowl closely enough which leaves a thin layer of frozen ice cream to be scraped off. Making less than ~3 cups of ice cream results in reduced aeration because the ice cream mix comes below the level of the plastic cross piece that mixes it.The best deal that I found now was at Williams Sonoma where the unit with a second bowl is $59.95. The second best deal is Linens & Things where a 20% off coupon will bring the cost from $49.99 to $40 but they don't offer additional bowls. The bowls cost about $30.
Amy Blaine: I really wanted to love this ice cream maker. I was Somersizing and wanted to use the all natural ice cream mixes that went along with the diet. I could get my ice cream to freeze- that wasn't a problem. It was like wonderful soft serve in the middle of the bowl. However, all along the edges of the bowl it was frozen rock solid and NOTHING was going to remove the ice cream from around it. The ring of rock hard ice cream wasn't just a small skim, it was a substantial amount. Sadly, this has spent more time hidden in the depths of my cabinets than being used.
Andy Baird "-------": Works very well--but [at the price]? Come on! This unit isvirtually identical to the Deni ice cream maker I bought at Target for[little over half the price]this spring--which also works very well. Shop around, people!
Anna: 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.
Ann B. Hibbard "anbee": We actually found this product on clearance sale at JCPennys last winter. It has been a wonderful kitchen gadget, as long as we keep a few things in mind...1) We store the bowl in the freezer rather than trying to freeze it only when we want ice cream. This ensures that it is nice andfrozen.2) We haven't tried to make frozen yogurt in it - only ice cream - so I don't know how it works with the yogurt.3) Ice cream recipes that call for something other than cream don't freeze as well and don't last as long after they are made. When we make ice cream with just milk or with evaporated milk, we have to let the machine run longer and then we have to eat the ice cream within a couple of days. It will also have a more crystallized and less creamy texture. Ice cream with a combination of heavy cream and milk is phenomenal, though! It will still form some ice crystals after several days in the freezer, but it's not bad at all.4) If we chill a metal mixing bowl in the freezer for a few minutes and then mix up the ice cream in it before putting it in the ice cream maker, it starts off colder and freezes better.So far I have not figured out how to make a nice, creamy low-fat ice cream in this maker, which is why I am giving it four stars instead of five. I still need to try the frozen yogurt. But, for regular ice cream, this is phenomenal! We love "chunky" ice cream, and love to experiment with all the different things we can add to the Ben & Jerry's French vanilla recipe. With the price of good ice cream these days, this quickly paid for itself because it's much cheaper to make our own. We love it!(Oh, and we bought the Ben & Jerry's ice cream cookbook to go with this - it has a lot of tips for successfully making ice cream.)
