Pros:Makes great ice cream. Clean-up is simple!

Cons:A little pricey, but we have recouped our money in savings!!

The Bottom Line: Highly recommended.  Takes up very little space, makes great tasting ice cream, and allows YOU to control the ingredients!!


About a year ago, I purchased an ice cream maker attachment made by a major manufacturer for their stand-mixer. We hated it. It was much more expensive than regular ice cream, as it required many, many eggs to make the ice cream. We needed to find an alternative, so we sold our attachment and searched for a replacement.

Why so crucial? Well, many reasons. The most important being that one of my daughters has a rare disorder that prohibits her from eating certain foods, commercial ice cream being one of them. Homemade ice cream allows us to control the ingredients, and thus it is safe for her.

Also of importance is that we much prefer organic products in our home. Aside from paying the equivalent of a home equity loan to buy organic ice cream from the store, it is very hard to find; ice cream parlors don't typically carry it, at least not in our area. I have found it in the city, but...well...suffice to say that is not practical with a carful of kids in tow.

SO...an ice cream maker it is. And we found the perfect fit for our family - the Cuisinart Soft-Serve Ice Cream Maker. Now, we make organic ice cream whenever we wish for pennies on the dollar of the cost of commerical organic ice creams.

It works beautifully, and produces a tasty end result. It often takes longer than the suggested time frame if extra flavorings are added in, or if you like a thicker, more custard-like texture (as we do).

And cleanup? It's a breeze.

We rarely use the mix-in feature, but we have, with success. When we do use it, it is usually sprinkles or crushed cookies.

And, to top it off, homemade organic whipped cream. Yum.

The flavor possibilities are endless. We have even made pumpkin!!
The included booklet gives you a few ideas and recipes, but all you need is imagination...the results can be surprisingly tasty!!

Great product for home, for gift-giving...simply wonderful.
