Easy to use and produces quality ice cream in no time. So much better than my previous entry-level ice cream maker, where the base needed to be put in the freezer for 10 hours first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HABHAB An excellent ice cream maker
I was choosing between this one and the Sage to replace my old poorly designed Magimix. In the end, I chose this one because of its bigger capacity and much simpler to use than the Sage. Besides, the Sage has too many unnecessary fancy functions. To be honest, who needs the machine to play a tune like an ice cream van when the ice cream is done?

Rated 5 out of 5 by StumpWeasel Makes lovely ice-cream
I looked at a lot of reviews prior to buying the Cuisinart icecream machine but kept coming back to this model and have been very pleased with it so far.
It's quite a large machine so you'll need a reasonable amount of space either for storing or displaying on your worktop.
We've made a cracking ginger ice cream and maple & pecan ice cream. I find that you need to keep an eye on it if adding chopped fruit or nuts. These are better chopped small, too large and the mixture builds up around the paddle and distribuion of ingredients isn't as even as it could be. Do be careful not to overfill the bucket, as your mixture will expand as it freezes.
The Cuisinart come with two paddles, allowing you to make ice-cream, gelato and sorbet. It is perhaps not the quietest of machines but not excrutiatingly loud. Very good value for money.

Brilliant machine - love it. I have made clotted cream ice cream and gin and tonic sorbet. Both well received by family and friends. Looking forward to making lots more.

I have used this twice already and both times the results were excellent. I made a strawberry ice-cream made with a base of custard and a chocolate and coconut ice cream made with almond milk and coconut milk. grandchildren loved both!
I'm very pleased with the machine and look forward to many combinations of fruit churned into ice cream. Like previous reviewers I have found the machine heavy, but no bother as it stands on my utility worktop next to a kitchenaid mixer.

Have only had this machine for about 3 weeks. Have made three sorts of ice cream which seem to be good. Ice cream made with just cream and fruit juice seem to go incredibly hard if left in the house freezer.
The last batch, a custard ice cream, produced a squeak per revolution of the paddle, am waiting to see if it happens again with the next batch before querying it.
Contrary to what some people think, I didn't find it all that noisy, didn't have to turn up the radio.
