The Cuisinart 1.5-qt. Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker makes delicious ice cream quickly and easily. Store the freezer bowl in your freezer, so it will always be frozen and ready to go. The cooling liquid between the two walls of the bowl lowers its temperature to the point where you can make soft serve ice cream in approximately 20 minutes, without the need for chemicals or ice. Simply place your ice cream ingredients or custard in the freezer bowl and put the bowl in the appliance. Your frozen dessert will be ready quickly, so you can serve guests who stop by unexpectedly. The ice cream freezes directly in the appliance: you don't need to harden it off it the freezer. The integrated dispenser allows you to fill cups, bowls or cones with your homemade ice cream or frozen yogurt. Kids of all ages will enjoy the three condiment dispensers. Fill them with sprinkles, chocolate chips or chopped up candy bars for an extra treat. These toppings can be directly mixed into your ice cream. When you pull the handle, the toppings come down the chute along with your frozen dessert. A stand at the bottom of the ice cream maker is the perfect size and shape for holding your favorite type of ice cream cones. Because this appliance is both an ice cream maker and a dispenser, you won't have to hunt down your ice cream scoops. All of the parts that need to be washed are easily removable so that there's no complicated clean up.

  • a good risk taken--a 4 PLUS

    I had seen mixed reviews, but took a chance- we are very happy. Haven't had it long enough to decide where I'd rank it between 4 and 5 .
    1) SET-UP: this was clear and straighforward. The only difficulty I had was early in use, when I was trying to re-assemble the clear chute back under the lever which opens the ice-cream flow; I had left the lever down and was stupidly trying to jam the chute back in for a good minute before I figured out that the lever handle must be up to create adequate space.
    2) MAKING the ice cream: Overall process is simple, intuitive. The liquid may drip through when you initially pour it into the canister, so we start with a bowl under the opening and dump it back in if it's more than a spoonful. We used the basic vanilla recipe with a few variations--there has always been plenty of chill in the frozen canister to make a full recipe without a problem. Even on New Year's Eve, when we made additional ice cream (we had 9 people, incl 5 kids) by adding more liquid in 6-oz amounts as the supply of made ice cream dwindled, we didn't exhaust the freezing capacity of the machine. One can peer in through the open top at the ice cream as it's being made and easily monitor its consistency. The add-in apparatus was a huge hit with the kids. We used mini M and M's, choc. jimmies and rainbow sprinkles.
    3) CLEAN-UP: no problems.

  • The soft serve ice cream maker works great. I only wish it would come with more thatn one freezing bowl so that you could make more than one batch at a time. It is a good value for the price for making small batches of soft serve at home.

  • Fun item.

    Before purchasing this, I was concerned about some of the negative reviews. Now that I have used it, I don't understand them at all. I assume that those folks didn't allow enough time, or too much time, or something. The only complaint about the product that I have is that too much use of it will make me fat. The first time that I used it, it did take a bit longer than the instructions said, but only about ten minutes. It was probably my fault for not using colder products. I have had to adjust to more difficult things in my life. I am glad that I bought it.

  • Reading other reviews was helpful

    After using it the first time, we learned things that will make the second batch more successful. I'm thinking that it probably is ready a couple minutes sooner than when it LOOKS like it's ready, just because the dessert in the bottom of the bowl is colder than what you see when you look in the top. So, when it looked right in the window, the bottom of the bowl was more frozen so would not come out, so next time we'll stop when it still looks a little less firm. I wish the directions were more clear about a couple things: Do you turn the machine OFF before dispensing, or leave it on? Evidently it has to be on for the toppings to dispense, but it seems like you have to dispense the ice cream and toppings at the same time? That takes some coordination!

  • Quick, fast, nice little machine

    I love the machine set-up, especially with the sprinkles dispenser. It doesn't make a lot of frozen yogurt or ice cream to really need the showy set-up - we get 4 or 5 3oz servings but it's a fun gadget to give everyone a quick soft-serve/frozen item. It only takes about 10-12 minutes and the machine has to remain on to dispense, otherwise, you need to scoop out and put into your freezer container so the paddle doesn't get frozen into the quickly hardening confection but overall, neat item. I wish I could find a similar machine that would make large quantities so I could use for catering events but for home use and a quick little treat, this works.

  • I used this for a barbecue ove r the 4th of July and it was a big hit. The best recipe was the coffee ice cream. Chocolate on was not that good. I will try some of the other recipes I have for ice cream, gelato and sorbet to see if they will do just as well.

  • Instructions for use

    Due to less than effective instructions for best results, we were forced to resort to trial and error before achieving the quality that we hoped for. For example.......very few consumers have any idea what temperature their freezer is set for. Very few consumers keep freezer thermometers in their homes. After a careful review, it does indicate that the freezer needs to be at

  • too runny to stay on the cone

    I thought that this ice cream would be able to hold up on the cone, like the ones you buy at a shop. the ice cream is too soft. the canister melts too fast also.

    This is a wonderful ice cream maker. Easy set-up and easy make. The kids love watching it. It took a little longer than said but was great. Bought more things to make another flavor this weekend. The add on on the side works great too. That was fun.

  • Soft Serve that actually works

    I bought a cheaper version of a soft serve ice-cream maker a year ago. The ice-cream was okay but there was no way it would ever come out of the spigot. Bought the Cuisinart hoping for the best and it didn't disappoint. Makes great soft serve and actually comes out and makes a curl on the top. Would reccommend this to anyone.

    The machine was a gift for my nephew as he always asks his mom to take him out for soft-serve. He LOVES IT! and my sister is thrilled!

  • When I made the ice cream the dispenser did not work. That was what intrigued my 9 year old, but we had to scoop the ice cream out, which takes away from the fun. The recipes are great.
