  • We are happy with our Cuisinart Pure Indulgence 2 Quart Ice Cream Maker.

    Pros: simple to operate, makes soft-serve ice cream
    Cons: freezer bowl requires a day of freezing, ice cream must be frozen more before serving

    Summary: As I added items to my bridal registry, I kept asking my husband (then fiance) if he had any requests. He kept saying that the whole thing was my deal and he didn't want to be involved, but one night after a couple of glasses of wine he announced that he ... read more

  • Cuisinart ICE-30BC 2 Qt Ice Cream Maker.......Love It!!

    Mar 24, 2012 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The recipes in the book which comes with the Ice Cream Maker are awesome!
    Cons: Ingredients get expensive, but it is so worth it when you taste it!

    Summary: I purchased this almost a year ago on Amazon and have had great success with it! Who doesn't love ice cream, I have always wanted to make my own (without the time consuming, tired arm syndrome of the crank) I did read a lot of online reviews and almost ... read more

  • Ice Cream in the Winter? Absolutely!

    Dec 29, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Automatic, looks good, and easy to clean
    Cons: Big, noisy, and plastic components. You need a good freezer.

    Summary: Ever since I saw my friend, Jason, using his Cuisinart, I wanted one of these. He made ice cream and sorbet in flavors you could never find in the store. So Santa brought me one for Christmas and while it's not exactly ice cream weather, I have made ... read more

  • Best Value for Ice Cream Makers

    Apr 4, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive and makes good ice cream.
    Cons: Very noisy. Makes only small batches.

    Summary: I debated getting a more expensive ice cream maker ... specifically one that had its own cooling system instead of the frozen bucket. I looked at the Cuisinart with the non-freeze ice cream making and the Lelo Gelato maker, both around or over $200. I ... read more

    Pros: Affordable, easy and can make delicous healthy treats!
    Cons: Loud.

    Summary: We bought this at Sam's Club for about $60.  We didn't realize what a bargain we were getting.  We only bought it yesterday but have already used it twice and loved it.It's easy to assemble.  I didn't want anything ... read more

  • For the price, an okay machine

    Jan 11, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Simple to operate and a three-year warranty
    Cons: Nothing too major

    Summary: I picked up this machine a year ago.  So far, I have made about 7-8 batches of ice cream.  It takes a little while getting used to how it makes ice cream (soft), but by the second or third batch, you will have the hang if it.  ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: quiet, easy to use and clean, recipe booklet
    Cons: none

    Summary: I purchased my first ice cream maker this summer: it is a Cuisinart, and I am delighted with it. I was raised to consider an electric ice cream maker an inferior product—my mom still uses (and swears by) her hand crank model. I wasn't sure if an ... read more

  • A good ice cream maker

    Jun 20, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to clean and operate
    Cons: A little expensive for what you get

    Summary: I have been thinking about getting one of these for some time now. Saw it at Costco for under $50 the other day and decided it was time to buy one. Home made ice cream is so good and being able to make it without ice, salt, or a crank is a very good ... read more

  • Disappointed in freezing ability

    Apr 6, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Simple to use. Inexpensive in cost.
    Cons: Need to freeze bowl overnight. Doesn't freeze well. Noisy.

    Summary: While it was simple to use and very inexpensive, I found that the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker did not produce an ice cream that met my standards for good ice cream. I used a recipe found in the included booklet for Chocolate Ice Cream. Once I made the ... read more

    Aug 19, 2007 by

    Pros: Easy to use and clean, powerful enough to make a good stiff ice cream.
    Cons: I can't think of any.

    Summary: Cuisinart has a real winner with the ICE-30BC Ice Cream Maker! I have used mine for over a year now and I can report that it not only makes great ice cream but it does so efficiently and easily. Simplicity in design and function is the key with this ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's incredibly easy to use. It actually looks good on the counter.
    Cons: It's a bit noisy.

    Summary: When our old ice cream maker finally refused to turn the paddle anymore I went looking for a new machine. We have a lot of allergies in out family so we make homemade ice cream and frozen yogurt pretty regularly. When I ran across this machine I was ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use and clean. Makes ice cream fast.
    Cons: A little loud when running. Not able to make multiple batches in one day.

    Summary: This is a great ice cream maker. It's easy to use and to clean. Just use you're favorite recipe and put the mix in the machine and let it churn for 20 minutes. Any chunky bits, like chocolate chips or nuts, get added in the last 2 to 5 minutes. Just ... read more

    Pros: Allows you to make any flavor of healthy ice cream or sherbet at home.
    Cons: None that I can think of.

    Summary: For those of you who have been reading my food machine related reviews over the last 1-2 years you will have noticed I like to include a few health related bits, with the human population more diseased today than ever before in it's history and as a ... read more

    Pros: Visually very appealing. Compact with few parts to keep up with and simple controls.
    Cons: Special bucket must be frozen for up to 22 hours before use.

    Summary: [See updated information at bottom] I bought this at Sam's Club as an impulse buy. Based on appearance and a display at point of purchase that stated "Eliminates the need for ice and rock salt.", I made an assumption that this Ice Cream Maker ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Makes great slushies!
    Cons: Needs to come with two more bowls so as to facilitate constant slushie production.

    Summary: OK, picture a 7.5 month pregnant lady walking into Best Buy with only one thing on her mind... "must have slushie." Now I am a Christian woman who believes our cravings are to be monitored and denied if harmful, but really, how bad can a little ice and ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to clean, well built, fast, relatively quiet operation
    Cons: None

    Summary: An ice cream maker is hardly a "must have" or everyday use home appliance. When the urge hits you however; there is nothing quite like making your own ice cream! If you have ever used the old style ice cream machines that used rock salt and tons of ice, ... read more

    Pros: Kinda easy and Kinda quick. Small and VERY easy to clean.
    Cons: Loud and does not create ice cream - creates a shake. Freeze for ice cream

    Summary: Just got this last week. Tried to make ice cream three times I got one batch of ice cream in the end. While it is SUPER NOISY, I guess it may be quiet for an ice cream maker. Ice cream is done when it is still kinda soupy like a shake and not yet at ... read more

    Cons: a tiny bit noisy, but well worth it.
