Lotsacookin: I bought this for my elderly mother and she loves it! It's working wonderfuly and making some fantastic ice cream. She can see it make the ice cream from the top. I'm sure it would be fun for kids to watch as well. No problems at all with it. Everyone should have one of these.
Loves2Read: The cream seems to freeze the the sides really quickly, which makes the top do this crazy clunky noise that seems.... wrong. Plus the ice cream doesn't always turn out perfect. Which could be a user error.... So keep that in mind!
LP: Do not buy this piece of crap. It's a waste of money. Yes, in theory, it can make ice cream, but not the ice cream that's worth the time and effort. I consistently got batches of ice cream that were "icy." NO, this was not a temperature problem. I would chill my custard for well over a day, and I would leave the bowl in the freezer for weeks. So, if you're looking for an ice cream that will not knock your socks off, this is not the machine. If you want something that will make quick "icy" ice cream, then this is your machine. You're better off with the old ice and rock salt ice cram makers; at least those machines can make ice cream that's smooth. Incredibly poor designing by cuisinart. I expect better from them; the paddle design seems to be the crux of the problem. The paddle doesn't adequately scrap the sides of the bowl. Also, I can't believe how many people have actually said they liked this thing. Low expectations I guess.
L. Thomas: Take some chocolate milk, cool whip and eagle brand milk. Mix together and pour in the ICE-20. In appr. 25 minutes you have ice cream that tastes like a Wendy's Frosty. Keep excess mixture in frig for later. It actually tastes better after being in the frig overnight. I was amazed how easy the ICE-20 is to clean. No salt to rinse out, no ice - just some great, smooth, wonderful ice cream. After ice cream is made, you just rinse the bowl with hot water, dry and return to the freezer for the next time. The paddle and lid are also very easy to clean. The manual says to keep the bowl in a plastic bag to prevent freezer burn. I have had my ice cream maker for appr. one month and I could not be happier so far.
Lynn Hoffman, author:Radiation Days: A Comedy: One of the best things about homemade ice cream and ice is that they seem to encourage people to join in making them. When I first started using mine for dinner parties, I would apologetically excuse myself, duck in the kitchen, muffle the noise of the freezer with a towel and scoot back every so often to check on progress.What I discovered was that people like to gather around the thing while it's running, so now I simply hand people a drink while I get the ingredients and we all stand around watching dessert happen.This last-minute approach has another advantage: it gives you incredible freedom when it comes to recipes. You see, the chemistry of freezing foods has its own set of built-in limits. You need to add appropriate amounts of sugar and alcohol to lower the freezing point of your mixture so that you get an ice and not an ice cube*.Making your ice just before you serve it allows you a lot of freedom. Since you'll be serving it right away, you can stop the machine whenever the mixture looks right. The whole process is really easy, so if you buy an extra bowl, you can experiment with different flavors in one meal or even try some unsweetened ices in the middle of a meal. (Cucumber puree frozen with mint in the middle of a July 4th dinner turns out to be a million times better than it sounds.)Be sure to allow enough time beforehand for bowls to chill in the freezer and make sure all ingredients are cold before you start.Lynn Hoffman, author of The New Short Course in Wine*A great source of explanation of freezing foods and some recipes is Harold McGee's The Curious Cook.
