Toddler Girl Sweet Letter Print Pullovers Review
Tom B.: I love homemade ice cream, but have not had luck with the traditional ice cream freezers where you add ice and rock salt. Though less expensive, they are less consistant.The Cuisinart ice cream maker is the opposite. This handy contraption soft freezes your ingredients in a mere 20 - 30 minutes and is simple to use. Simply freeze the canister ahead of time, add frozen canister to top of plastic base, add ingredients and turn on!Consistant results every time. The recipe book included with the machine is very good, and all of the recipes are easy to follow and are delicious. Some recipes are no cook Philadelphia Style (only cream, sugar and flavorings) though most are custard style (involving cooking the ingredients and adding eggs). All are easy to make even by the kitchen novice.Once you learn the basics of making ice cream, you will not want to buy store bought again.I use this machine about once a week to make ice creams, sherberts, and water ices. Its definately a must for those who like fresh homemade desserts.
Traci A. Hannah "Traci": I have always used my kitchen aid attachment for ice cream and am very happy with it; however, we don't eat a lot of ice cream and the Kitchen Aid bowl was too big. I picked this up when I read some great reviews and I am very pleased. The ice cream maker is very easy to use and while not as quiet as I hoped for, it doesn't take long to get great ice cream. Note that what you first end up with is more soft serve which we really enjoy but after a few hours in the freezer you have more of an ice cream texture. Great product - Cuisinart never lets me down!
Tracy Rowan "dargelos": Upfront: Yes, I recommend this machine. It's easier to use than any other ice cream maker I've ever owned. However, there are a couple of things to remember or you're going to be very frustrated by the experience. First off, the freezer bowl has to be frozen solid. Near solid isn't good enough. I suggest you leave the bowl in your freezer for two days just to make sure it's cold enough. Be sure your ingredients are very cold, too. I use condensed and/or evaporated milk in a couple of my recipes and a day or two in the refrigerator is really important. Room temperature just won't cut it. And the thicker the better with this machine. A custard base is an excellent way to start.Next, don't dawdle. Get your ingredients right into the bowl. It begins to thaw pretty quickly, especially in hot weather. And that's when ice cream is best, isn't it? And finally, twenty-five minutes to half an hour is about as long as the freezer bowl lasts, so if you've gone that long and it's still looking like soft-serve, get it right into a container and toss it in the freezer for a while before serving.I know it sounds complicated, but it's not really. Most of it is just remembering to get things to the right temperature. This isn't a big, fancy freezing unit, it's a relatively inexpensive way to make your own ice cream at home. You're going to have to make some adjustments. That said, I have to tell you that it's a great deal of fun to watch the ice cream freezing and to turn it out into bowls and see the eyes of your family light up when you say, "The ice cream is ready!"I put this item in the fun to have but not a necessity category.
Treespiker "Chris": This is fun with the kid but a bit messy. Also freezing the coolant takes forever. Fun Though
Truthful: I'M VERY PLEASED WITH THIS CUISINART ICE-20 ICE CREAM, YORGURT, SORBET, MAKER. IT'SMADE EXCELLENT COCONUT ICE CREAM, AND RASBERRY SORBET.
