Reviews around serve (5.00 of 5)

  • With the ingredients chilled, you will have a soft serve textured ice cream in about 40 minutes and a couple of hours in the freezer will firm it up if you like that.
  • I enjoy the soft serve texture, but if you like your ice cream firmer, it will need to be placed in the freezer for a few hours.
  • Not only that but the ice cream comes out like soft serve
  • We have toured ice cream factories, and all ice cream is initially churned to a soft serve like consistency, and then put in the freezer to get harder.
  • Again, as noted by others, the ice cream comes out soft serve

  • My husband bought this, and at first I grumbled

Reviews around result (4.13 of 5)

Reviews around recipe (3.90 of 5)

  • For lower sugar and fat recipes, I found that it helped to chill the base well beforehand.
  • Followed the recipe to the t, properly chilled the mix, let process for 40 minutes
  • I have also developed a rocky road recipe that surpasses my former ice cream parlor.
  • It makes good ice cream and it's very easy to use; it's just a huge pain if your recipe over-fluffs beyond the bowl.
  • but I am sure once I find a good recipe it will make some delicious ice cream.

Reviews around product (3.76 of 5)

  • When I made cherry ice cream with fresh cherries, I really did not like the end product with the fresh frozen cherries.
  • Scrape the product into containers and freeze for at least an hour or so
  • It churns a product just like commercial ice cream but with my ingredients---with no additives, low sugar, etc.
  • It freezes so hard so fast, the product is difficult to remove.
  • I would recommend this product for anyone that wants ice cream or gelato fast and delicious.

Reviews around texture (3.57 of 5)

  • First: I was expecting the machine to be inconsistent with ice cream freezing times and textures
  • No more mess, and the overall texture is better because the more-frozen bits get blended with the softened stuff
  • The ice cream gets consistently cold and the texture is great
  • Hence, probably the reason I have not made gelato yet as that tends to be a harder texture... I will try someday
  • I have made ice cream that turns out much better than premium store bought, it has a great texture and taste

Reviews around thing (3.56 of 5)

  • The hardest thing about making ice cream in the ICE-100 is staying out of the ice cream while waiting for the final freezing
  • Yes, you are limited to only one quart at a time, but that means you can change flavors every time, so that's not a bad thing
  • It's the next best thing to having an ice cream parlor in your own house.
  • Works great and such a wonderful thing to make batch after batch when you have a crowd
  • Another thing to be aware of is that if you opt to leave the mixture in the machine for the full 60 minutes, the bucket may well be frozen in place, making it impossible to remove it for scraping your ice cream out

Reviews around mix (2.13 of 5)

  • I use Darigold fresh soft serve ice cream mix straight from the carton
  • I bought some soft serve mix and a bag of DOLE Whip to have on hand to mix up in minute even when I don't have anything on hand, but we have also made some great ice cream from scratch
  • The ice cream took longer than stated and at times the mix froze unevenly so that the machine struggled.
  • All of the recipes in the included booklet and in the two ice cream recipe books we own require chilling the mix for two hours or more before freezing in the machine.
  • I usually split the mix into two equal portions and then run two machine cycles.

Reviews around canister (2.07 of 5)

  • The only negatives, which did not keep me from giving it 5 stars, are- the timer defaults to 60 minutes where 45 minutes is usually correct for most ice creams- while the removable canister is easy to clean, overflow (which will happen every so often if you make a bunch of ice cream) makes a mess and is not that easy to clean out of the cracks and crevicesAs other reviewers have mentioned, wiping the canister dry with a cloth between batches is important
  • I freeze the canister with the paddle and ingredients in it for at least 30 minutes to an hour before making the ice cream.
  • Doesn't freeze as hard as I would like, however placing mix after freezing in freezer for about 1 hour gave it good body
  • I used to use one of the frozen canister models to make ice cream
  • If you want to make lots of ice cream and/or you're prone to forgetting to freeze a canister on manual models, this is for you.

Reviews around cup (1.80 of 5)

  • It was only about 3 cups, and froze in 22 minutes
  • I found 2-3 cups works great, and you can make as many successive batches as you want
  • So trust me, Don't try to freeze more than three cups, total, of mixture.
  • I made frozen yogurt tonight in a 79F degree kitchen, and it was able to be scooped and hold its shape in 30 minutes.--Do not exceed 4 cups of mix in the bucket.
  • The second batch was a full 5 cups of cooked and chilled custard base, and froze in 42 minutes

Reviews around design flaw (1.77 of 5)

  • This is a bad design flaw, and I don't know why Cuisinart allowed this to happen.
  • If I could add half a star I'd do that, because it does have a design flaw that wasn't apparent until it was used - the bowl and paddles remove for easy cleaning, but the well where the bowl sits is not completely sealed and doesn't disassemble further than I can find, so any small spills or overfills can result in ice cream getting into cracks of the device where they can't be cleaned out
  • Not worth all the time and effort even if the design flaw is corrected.
  • Doesn't freeze as hard as I would like, however placing mix after freezing in freezer for about 1 hour gave it good body
  • It was interesting to read the negative reviews re the design flaw which does not allow for assurance of hygienic washing after use.

Reviews around bowl (1.70 of 5)

  • Especially love not having to freeze a bowl before making ice cream
  • The removable bowl, lid, paddle/dasher are super easy to clean
  • This machine sold me because I don't have to freeze the bowl

Reviews around milk (1.47 of 5)

  • I received a defective product where the unit wasn't cold enough to freeze milk
  • So far, my favorite gelato flavors have been Sicilian Crema (tastes like creme brûlée), lemon, pistachio, vanilla, cherry, and peaches
  • I omit the milk completely and substitute 2 tbsp. of Truvia and 24-28 drops of  EZ Sweetz  (liquid sucralose) per each cup of sugar
  • You're going to have to break out several screwdrivers and open the machine up to fully clean it as some ice cream gets inside and creates a nasty spoiled milk scent
  • My main motivation for getting the ice-cream maker was to be able to control the ingredients since I prefer raw milk and limited sweeteners

Reviews around noise (1.30 of 5)

  • The noise doesn't bother me anymore, and by keeping everything cooler, I no longer make a big mess on the counter.
  • The noise from this machine will not hinder your hearing your wife's incessant nagging, or the smoke alarm while she's burning dinner
  • As a postscript, after about 4 months, the ice cream maker started making a very loud squeeling noise when the ice cream was in process and posing resistance to the turning paddles
  • The machine make a loud screeching noise which is VERY irritating.
  • Not an annoying noise like a blender, but loud enough that you wouldn't want to gather around the ice cream maker and chat if you could help it

Reviews around content (1.00 of 5)

  • Additionally, the excess churning time (35-40 minutes) means that high fat content ice creams become greasy as the fat content begins to create butter streaks in the ice cream
  • n’t take a chance on this device, it wont work and Cuisinart wont back up their device.
  • This may be somewhat of an effect of my attempts to limit the sugar content, however, as the sugar is a key ingredient for ensuring proper freezing of ice cream.
  • n’t take a chance on this device, it wont work and Cuisinart wont back up their device.
  • At 72 degrees 1st batches take about 25 minutes dependent on fat & sugar content

  • So far, my favorite gelato flavors have been Sicilian Crema (tastes like creme brûlée), lemon, pistachio, vanilla, cherry, and peaches
  • The second warning I took to heart was to make sure the bucket was completely dry before putting the device away for storage to eliminate the potential for a musty smell developing
  • I see that some people have had problems with a funky smell due to two holes in the driveshaft mechanism in the bucket.
  • I experienced the nasty smell after leaving the machine unused for a week.
  • Now I always swish it with a mild bleach solution, no funny smell yet after 4 months.3

Reviews around self freeze (1.00 of 5)

  • That is slower than some makers that are not self-freezing, but if you are making multi-batches at once, it's way faster than waiting several hours to re-freeze the bowl.
  • Does it make better ice cream than the non-self-freezing models
  • So far, my favorite gelato flavors have been Sicilian Crema (tastes like creme brûlée), lemon, pistachio, vanilla, cherry, and peaches
  • But, that is to be expected for any self-freezing ice cream maker
  • Even though it's self-freezing, it helps if you put the aluminum bowl in the freezer before using it.
