Good Purchase for a Great Tasting Summer Treat!
After some skepticism and a year of consideration, I recently purchased this ice-cream maker. I read the instructions and my first batch bombed - however, after talking with the sales associate, he recommended that I freeze the freezer bowl upside down and at the back of the freezer - which I did, and the next day my 2nd batch came out perfectly! My husband just made a batch of strawberry gelato which also came out great. We have decided is to keep the freezer bowl in our freezer in order to have the unit available without the need to plan around the overnight freezing requirement

I bought this machine specifically to make sorbet from all of the oranges from our tree. It took only 5 minutes and I had 2 1/2 quarts of sorbet. Great fun!

Whip together great ice cream quickly
I bought this ice cream maker on sale in May. I've used it a handful of times since and always thought two things: how quickly the mix churns into ice cream and ""Should it be making this much noise?"".

The bowl sets up well before the suggested 24 hour period in the freezer, which is handy for next day use. I've also thrown the ""need to refrigerate the mix"" suggestion out and made it with refrigerated ingredients - it still comes together in 30 minutes or less.

Then comes the downside: I had romantic visions of secretly whipping up ice cream during a dinner party to surprise guests. The noise from this machine (a growl to a low roar) can be heard well past the kitchen, extinguishing my plans.

Verdict: For the price, it is a functional and timely ice cream maker. I highly recommend it
July 13, 2012
This is such a fun machine. It's great to be able to tweak your ice cream flavors and create your own. It says it makes ice cream in 20 minutes, but it's not at all firm. It's about the consistency of heavily stirred ice cream, so I make it a few hours ahead of time so it firms up.

I consider it a good investment, but I think the ""$110 value"" is a bit much. I think the $59.95 is an appropriate price point

Very Simple
Excellent ice cream comes from this great kitchen gadget. Easy to use - must prep ingredients first, however. Have used it several times and even purchased a 2nd one! Needed another bowl anyways - so it's handy to have 2 makers on hand at once, especially if we'd like 2 different flavors
May 18, 2011
Great for Low Carbing!
Sometimes we need a sweet something too in low carbing this is definitely one of the better ice cream makers I have owned. It has stood up to heavy cream mixtures without the ""bucking"" other ice cream makers have done. I did find it best to also let the paddle get cold too. I didn't freeze it just keep it in the fridge.
It has also been great for creating custards that are not hard frozen

Fun addition to kitchen
I bought this machine after seeing it in use in one of the cooking classes I attended. I had been reluctant to buy an ice cream maker because of needing salt etc. This little machine is the best. It truly does make great tasting ice cream in 30 minutes or less. The consistency is similar to soft serve, but if you place it in the freezer for a short while you have real ice cream texture.

It is a bit on the noisy side, but that doesn't bother me. I would describe it as a hum

No Regrets Purchase
I love this machine! You can so easily make your own custom flavors of delicious ice cream in 15-20 minutes of machine time depending upon the ingredients you add to your recipe i.e. fresh fruit adds 5 minutes. It produces soft serve ice cream, but an hour or two in the freezer firms it up if you prefer that. This is so easy I've made so many batches in the two weeks I've owned it that I've already gotten my money out of it.

new family favorite
Easy to use. Makes delicious sorbet, frozen yogurt, and ice cream. After using this, our family will never purchase pre-made ice cream again
June 14, 2014
OMG - how easy/delicious!
I don't even like ice cream but the salted caramel vanilla is what I make & serve for every dinner party and my guests go crazy for it. It's very easy and at a good price!

I love this ice cream maker use it all the time and tonight I dropped the top compartment( the plastic cracked) and it smashed and has a huge chunk out of the top.........can this part be replaced, or is it just better to get another one? I am so upset I use this weekly.
A shopper on May 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it happened to me google replacement part for model #
please explain how the cuisineart work in detail
A shopper on Mar 25, 2011
BEST ANSWER: you make the ice cream or sorbet base, and pour it in, turn it on and let it churn. the maker comes with several recipes, they are also easy to find online. SLT also sells a book ""the perfect scoop"" which is chock-full of great ice cream and sorbet recipe
Can the Cuisinart ice cream maker be used to make Gelato
A shopper on Apr 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would say you can since I am able to make heavy custards in it. You have to freeze the gelato in a container after 30 minutes of mixing though. The freezing container is not powered just frozen and only keeps its freeze about 30.
I try to avoid dairy. Are there recipes for coconut or almond milk?
David S on May 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I use almond milk all the time, have a dairy allergy.......if you use one with a higher fat content the result, will be creamier, if not just churn it, ( I put a small freezer lunch bag over the hole in the top of the upper part of the unit, to keep it colder, ) , and then after you think it is about as cold and hard ( not likely it will still be soft) as it will get, ( 25-30 min) scoop it out and put in a freezable container for an hour and then serve it then, if longer, it will get hard, you might even have to take it out prior to dessert, and let it soften a bit. It will be worth the effort. I made coconut ice cream tonight, made dark chocolate last night, had a dinner party, ( both of these made with coconut milk) served it with toasted coconut, fresh pineapple chunks, and drizzle of dark chocolate............omg, big hit, like a mounds bar with pineapple.....delish and the guests gave me a round of applause!! go for it!!
Your picture shows several bright colors--are more colors available than white and pomegrante?
A shopper on Feb 23, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Although we did carry this ice cream maker in several bright colors, all that is available at this time is white and pomegranate, as the others have been discontinued
Does this come with a cookbook of ice cream recipes?
A shopper on Jun 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It comes with a small recipe booklet - instruction booklet with several recipes. It's a great way to try out your new purchase but I would recommend investing in a few good specialty books for a wider variety.
Is the paddle suppose to move?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The paddle remains in place while the bowl rotates. Good luck! I'm making peach sorbet tonite. Enjoy this terrific product.
What is the inside of the bowl made of? What is the beater made of?
A shopper on May 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The description says that the bowl, the part that you put in the freezer, is stainless steel. This includes the inside of the bowl. It is a thick double-walled bowl that is filled with some material that freezes. The description says that the paddle is "ABS plastic." It is very sturdy and, if you follow the directions, you won't have to worry about it breaking. This is an excellent ice cream-maker -- easy to use and efficient.
Is it noisy?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Noise is hard to explain as what is noisy to someone, isn't to someone else.)) I can tell you this much, it is quieter than the Krups I used before I got this one..
My cover will not stay in the locked position- it pops up when the churning starts. I have to stand over it and push it to keep it on . What to do?
Cathryn T on Jul 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Did your ice cream maker ever work properly? I just tried mine and even if I don't slide the clear top into place, it doesn't move (but scratches along the bow.l). Or maybe over-filling the bowl which is pushing the top up?
My ice cream texture was too icy. What did I do wrong?
Kathy B on May 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I whisked all my ingredients together prior to adding to Cuisunart. Then it’s important to watch as it mixes & freezes. Think about 12-15 minutes is generally a good consistency for ice cream but everyone has their own idea on the “ perfect” ice cream. Some love very icy; others just wanted it well-mixed but creamier. Try playing around with how long you leave it in Cuisinart machine.
What is the wattage? we are thinking of taking camping
Elizabeth L on Jul 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not sure about the wattage, but I can't imagine taking it camping. It is bulky and you have to freeze the drum before you use it.
What are the dimensions of the bowl that must be put in the freezer? I have a very small freezer! Otherwise it sounds great.
A shopper on May 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Dimensions: 8½"W x 8"D x 12"T
I have lost my receipt book for the Cuisinart ice cream maker model #699645. Any chance I can get one?
A shopper on Mar 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I just googled Cuisinart Ice Cream maker recipe book and it came up. This site won't allow me to post the link - but it looked right. Try it

good luck and ejoy
I recently purchased this ice cream maker and love it! I have made the vanilla and butter pecan recipes, both were very tasty. I am having a problem with a film developing on the spoon while I am eating the ice cream. It continues to get thicker and I can feel it as I continue to eat. Has anyone else had this happen? Any suggestions what the cause might be? I am using a stainless steel spoon.
Ruth K on Sep 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We have had for a couple of years and love it. This has not happened to us. We also use a stainless steel spoon generally. It must be some sort of butter or fat layer. One recipe we made recently said to be careful not to over mix or you will get some butter! Maybe try cutting down on the churn time. Good luck.
where can I get a user manual?
Deziyah on Oct 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Cuisinart manual is available for download on the manufacturer's website.
Can I purchase an extra red freezer bowl?
A shopper on May 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can purchase another red bowl from Ereplacementparts.
Red freezer bowl is part number ICE-RFBR. Cost is $34.20. You could also try calling Cuisinart customer service. I hope this helps. Sur web site will not let me give you any phone numbers, sorry
Does this machine make gelato too?
A shopper on May 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can make gelato. If you have a family I recommend getting the one with 2 bowls.This is the easiest ice cream maker I have had.
Do you carry the replacement paddle for this item? I need one.
Jacqui L on May 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, we don't carry any replacement parts. I believe you can get it directly through Cuisinart.
is the Cuisinart ice 25 freezer bowl compatible with the Cuisinart ice 21 ice cream maker?

Cuisinart® Freezer Bowl, 1½ qt.
Cuisinart® Freezer Bowl, 1½ qt.
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is.
Is the freezing bowl itself dishwasher safe?
A shopper on May 27, 2012
BEST ANSWER: No, Cuisinart does not recommend the freezing bowl be placed in the dishwasher. After using the machine, allow the freezing bowl to warm to room temperature, then clean with mild soap and warm water. Allow to air dry or towel dry and place back in your freezer for storage. Once frozen, it will be ready to use next time you decide to make homemade ice cream
How loud is it when it's processing?
A shopper on May 26, 2011
BEST ANSWER: About the same noise level as a food processor. I just put mine in the dining room while we're eating dinner so it's ready when we're done!
