Disappointing but does the job
As I have only ever used a self-cooling ice cream churner in a commercial kitchen this was a little bit of a let down. Having to freeze the bowl for 12+ hours ahead is inconvenient but still, it works. Very noisy machine. Have used it to make sorbet and the outcome was good. Recommended for a home cook.

noisy and disappointing
I have had ice cream makers before and the last one a part broke which I could not replace so we bought a different machine ( as the last one was 20 years old ). This one is very noisy you can hear it out on the street and even thought I semi freeze the mix prior to putting it in it takes 40 to 60 mins to make a batch and it is only soft serve. The recipes are nice in the instruction manual

Cuisinart
First batch made double chocolate ice-cream. The process a bit more complex than than I realised. Machine is a bit noisy but just set it up away from kitchen area. End result was thumbs up from my harshest critics the 3 gorgeous men in my life!!!

First time use noisy problem
I received this ice-cream maker in good shape. However, when I run it the first time, it is extremely noisy. Seems something wrong with the motor or gear inside. Contacted Cuisinart but not reply yet.

Great to date!
I've only had this machine a short while and only managed one batch, but wow, it worked really well. The instruction booklet says the frozen bowl will quickly thaw, but I didn't have any problems, even in this very hot summer. In fact by the time I got to scraping out the bowl, the icecream next to the sides was quite hard.The unit is fairly noisy, but I just put it in another room. I set a timer in the kitchen, so I wouldn't forget - the unit has no timer or auto stop. Next time I will have the serving bowls and container for the remainder also chilled, to stop melting before it gets to the table. Presumably smaller batches would work well (after doing the maths on the amounts of ingredients), but I suspect it would churn quicker - just have to watch it. The unit isn't too big for storage either. A quality machine.

Loved it so far
Love the machine but feel there should be something in instructions to make smaller batches than recipe, sorbet didn't thicken due to amount. Hope icecream is as yummy as my neighbours

Yum!
Purchased for my daughter......such a great item to add to her kitchen. There is a little noise as the unit churns away but not as loud as the excited children waiting for it to finish! Hint....run the unit when children are absent.

Simple
A very simple easy to use product. Much easier to clean than other ice cream makers I have used. I like the extra capacity too. Only downside for me was that the ice-cream did not thicken evenly, but maybe I just left the mix in too long.

Love it
I have made vanilla and strawberry ice cream in my brand new Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and it was absolutely delicious. Can't wait to make my next one which will be passionfruit. All my family just love it. They all want me to try chocolate too. I didn't find the machine too noisy it was just doing it's job - just turn up the sound of the tv - simple.

Noisy
I was excited when the delivery arrived and couldn't wait to make my 1st batch of ice cream. After freezing the block and putting the machine together I added my ice cream mix. I couldn't believe how noisy this machine was, it even woke up my children from their sleep. I'd had an older and different brand one previously that was much cheaper than this one. I've got to say for the cost of the machine I was hoping for better quality than I got!;The noise from this machine is a big disappointment!!!!

Finally natural icecream/frozen yoghurt relatively simply!
I'd had my eye on one of these machines for ages now and due to a fabulous special just before Christmas I ordered one straight away. Already made two batches (Choc-Mint Icecream and Frozen Berry Yoghurt with home grown ingredients) realistically it's so easy. And even though the machine is quite noisy we don't mind because in all reality it's only on for around 45 mins max and at least you won't walk away and forget about it! The only problem I have is the lack of space in the freezer to store all the flavours I'm wanting to make. Guess we'll just have to eat it more often! Highly recommend it.

I agree with other comments regarding the noise levels but it seems to be a small price to pay for the end result! This machine makes ice cream making very easy...too easy in fact according to our waistlines.

Cuisinart Ice Cream Heaven
I made my first batch of Vanilla ice cream to have with our Christmas pudding and /or Pavlova baskets and fresh fruit. It was very simple to do and the resulting ice cream got the seal of approval from diners :) I am really looking forward to concocting many other delicious frozen desserts in 2014. The Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker came up to my expectations with bells and whistles :)

Worth every penny
Since becoming lactose intolerant I've been missing my ice cream. Now I don't need to miss it anymore! I found this machine very easy to use and it makes wonderfully creamy ice cream even using coconut milk and cream. Even my picky 3 year old enjoyed it and asked for more. Some reviews I read prior to purchasing mentioned the noise, but can't say I was overly bothered by it (and I have an open plan house). I'm extremely happy with my purchase and would recommend this machine is anyone looking to buy it

Amazing buy
We originally bought one of these from our local mall as a gift for my sister-in-law and her children. When we saw it on Kitchenware Direct for $20 less, we were kicking ourselves! But it was such a hit with my sister-in-law's family that we ended up buying one from Kitchenware Direct anyway for us, and have used it non-stop since. It produces amazing results and was delivered promptly and safely.

an appliance that works as promised!
In the past, I have had a couple of gadgets that promised to make ice cream and both of them delivered unappetising bricks. With some trepidation I bought a Cuisinart. It works! The very first time (following hints from previous owners about making sure the bowl was deeply frozen), it produced delicious, light ice cream. Joy!

Love this machine!
Just following up from giving the husband his present. We got to use it on the weekend and christened the ice cream maker by making Coffee Toffee Swirl icecream! The texture and consistency was beautiful and creamy, it churned our custard into ice cream in 20 minutes! I sat mesmerised by the churning and watched it convert to icecream before my eyes! I have bought vanilla bean pods to make a new batch on the weekend. Will be getting many years of happiness from Cuisinart. Very quick delivery and very well packaged too! A pleasure purchasing with you guys! Will be back for more - may have to buy more bowls for more flavours!!!

Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker
Quick? Yes for the first bowl. Don't try to make a second flavour in a hurry because you can't! You are left with 5mm layer frozen solid around the bowl. You either wait an hour or so for it to soften or you wash the bowl in hot water and then you have to refreeze it. Texture not creamy, more like soft serve.

Goodbye Supermarket Ice Cream - Hello Cuisinart!!!
I purchased this for my husband and giving it to him for his birthday next week. We have also purchased dessert glasses to go with it. Cannot wait to get it up and running. I put the bowl in the freezer as soon as we got it so we don't have to waste time making icecream as soon as we give it to him!!! Goodbye Supermarket IceCream - forever!!!

worth it? yea baby!
The texture of the icecream this makes is amazing. My wife has been making icecream that is soooo good it would easily pass as the top shelf stuff you pay big bucks for but it costs us a fraction of the price. Highly recommended, no problems at all. The only thing to consideration is it's a bit on the noisey side but generally speaking it's not a problem and only needs to run for about 20 minutes anyway.

Love it
I have used this ice cream maker so many times since I bought it, I've lost count. My family love ice cream & this is simple to use & makes great ice cream. It is somewhat noisy but as it only runs for 20-25 minutes at a time in making the ice cream, I can forgive it that fact. I think it is great value for money & so easy to use.

very noisy
I am not sure whether I am happy or not yet I have tried it but obviously "heavy cream" is not "dollop cream" so turned out lumpy also feel castor sugar would be best to use. Not happy that have to mix ingredients in a separate bowl before placing in ice cream maker. Not happy with price I paid now they are on big special but thems the breaks I guess.

Great results - but there is quite a bit of motor noise
We have produced several batches of delicious icecream (coffee is the favourite so far) and love the results. However, the machine produces rather a lot of motor noise while churning. Not sure if this is 'normal' - and hope it's not going to compromise long term reliability of the machine.

Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker - 2 Li
Easy to use however in no reviews is there a mention that the freezer must be -18 degrees to freeze the bowl. My first batch did not work. Kitchenware Direct referred me on to a helpline which diagnosed the problem & sent me a freezer thermometer. With the freezer set at maximum, the temperature was only -12 deg. I do have an issue with the bowl being cold enough to make the ice cream. For my second attempt I left the bowl in the freezer for a week & this worked. No complaints about the machine, but it would have been helpful to know about the freezer temperature requirements before purchasing.

Making Icecream is so easy.
I never realised it was so easy to make icecream with an icecream maker. Only 20 minutes to get a soft serve consistency icecream. This is a good quality machine. I find it very noisy, so operate it in another room, behind closed door.

Cuisinart Ice Cream, Yoghurt & Sorbet Maker Stainless Brushed
We love our ice-cream (especially living in hot North Qld!) and purchased the Cuisinart Ice Cream, Yoghurt & Sorbet Maker Stainless Brushed in January. We are in love it! Our kids love it because it's so easy to use they can help and the ice-cream is truly devine. I have reduced the amount of sugar to 1/4 quarter of the recipe and use light cream and skim milk. The ice-cream still tastes creamier than store-bought full cream ice-cream. I overheard our 9yr old telling our 5yr old recently that 'mummy makes the best ice-cream ever and you won't get ice-cream this good in a shop!' That has to be the best recommendation I've heard!

Words like: decadent; divinely sublime; best ice cream I've ever had; better than any in any shop; I am buying an ice cream machine. The list of comments has been fabulous.

Tried my Cuisinart ice cream maker for the first time last night. Really impressed with the flavour and texture of the icecream. I decided to go safe and do a vanilla bean to begin with but then decided to finely chop a cherry ripe and pop through in the last 5 minutes. Delicious!

Love it!
Absolutely love this ice cream maker, its my new favourite appliance. We've made lots of different ice-creams but our favourite so far has been mango .... yum. The bought ice-creams just can't compare with homemade. Homemade is so much tastier and at least we know whats going into it. Sure the machine is a little bit noisy but not so much that you can't hear yourself think. And if it becomes too noisy you could always take it into another room. Overall we love this machine so much I've just bought another for my diabetic mother so she can make diabetic-friendly frozen yoghurts. It's an awesome appliance and I've got no regrets in making the purchase.

Quick delivery. I've been experimenting with flavours and having fun. Made an incredible cassata for Christmas which everyone loved. I live 22 km from the nearest shop so I can produce a batch of icecream in less time than it would take to drive to town and back. Recipe book is a bit limited but a google search is inspirational. Machine is a bit noisy but I keep it in the laundry where my big freezer is, so all's good.

Nothing better than home made ice cream!
We love experimenting with making our own ice creams and sorbets and the Cuisinart ice cream maker is great - as long as you chill the bowl at the very least overnight. The few times we've only chilled it for 4-5 hours, the ice cream doesn't form very well - so, lots of planning ahead is involved! Other than that, very simpe to use and lots of fun!

Love this ice-cream maker - Kitchenware Direct delivered in superquick time to a country area so I could get started on icecream that I now know what it contains. Got the red one - looks excellent. I have cut back on the sugar in the recipes in the booklet - seems an awful lot and we find the ice-cream is still delicious. One complaint - our girths are expanding - moderation required methinks.

Great unit, a little loud though.
The trick to getting the most out of this unit is to make sure the bowl is fully frozen which will take at least 12 hours (no sloshing can be heard when shaken). The finished result is like soft serve. There is no need to freeze the ice cream prior to serving like I was expecting. The texture is actually firmer than I thought it would be. The only downside is that the unit is noisy. For something that simply stirs I am unsure why it could not be enginerred quieter. Otherwise a brilliant machine that by all accounts does much the same job as a more expensive compressor model.

With four hungry kids ice cream is a big hit in our house. We all love the ice cream that this machine makes. As long as you are prepared by freezing the bowl the night before you can have the best ice cream ever in 20 minutes. It is a little on the noisy side but we just put it in another room. So easy to use and clean. We are rapt with our purchase.

Love my ice cream maker
the Cuisinart ice cream maker is easy to use and clean and looks nice and sleek. It made good tasitng ice cream from the first try. The only negative is the included recipe book is American so some of the ingredients need Aussie translation. Also it is v noisy for a small appliance

Great product and even better service
This was my second order from Kitchenware Direct, and I'm impressed. The ice-cream maker is great - a bit noisy, but the sorbet is excellent and the ice-cream.....well, I won't buy the commercial stuff again. I've now bought a second freezer bowl too, also from Kitchenware Direct, and the service was again excellent!! Given the time needed to freeze the bowl prior to making your ice-cream, I'd suggest a second bowl is almost essential.

Shirley

4/8/2011

Yum!
What a great investment this ice cream maker was. When your 20-25 minutes is up the ice cream is very much like soft serve, in the middle of the freezer bowl, and real ice cream near the sides and bottom of the bowl. The only fault with it is that it's noisy, real noisy. Louder than my teenage son! If it wasn't for the noise I would have given it five stars. Luckily I have a power point in my pantry and make the ice cream in there, which helps reduce the decibels. I guess you can't forget you left it on with it being so loud. The mixing arm is plastic and doesn't seem too sturdy but so far so good. I also bought a spare freezer bowl so I can make up to four batches in one day, so big is the demand for fresh ice cream in my small household. The recipe booklet is great to give you ideas of what you can do with this ice cream maker and I have modified a number of recipes in the few weeks that I've had it. A little tip I also picked up from the net is that guar gum (it's used in many commercial ice creams) will stop your ice cream from developing ice crystals, which is great if it doesn't all get eaten in the one sitting, and yes, I've tried it and it works... do your own research on it though. There are pros and cons as with anything. Oh, and the sorbet is to die for!

This machine makes the best ice cream and sorbet. What a great product. It is on the noisy side, so has to be put in another room, but it is only for 25 minutes. The only disappointment is that it doesn't come with a lid to cover the machine during the mixing process and to store the ice-cream in the mixing bowl in the freezer. My family cant get enough of the great ice cream it makes. Love this product ! Kitchenware Direct are great to deal with. It won't be the last time I'll be using this site.

The Best Ice Cream!
OMG, I have no idea why it took me so long to purchase the Cuisinart Ice Cream maker. For years I have been making ice cream by hand and generally taking up to 6-7 hrs to ensure it was beaten enough. No more! The Cuisinart Ice Cream maker has saved me so much time. I now use it weekly, sometimes twice a week and the result is as good as, if not better, than the high quality shop varieties available. I must admit I have not yet tried the recipes that came with the machine as I am busy working my way through my ice cream recipe book. The noise was a bit of a shock, but it is only for a short time :-). Kitchenware Direct, thank you for your prompt and professional service. I highly recommend this product. Thank you

Not just a flick of the switch
I bought it for our cocktail bar to make some palate cleansers. Most of the instructions suggest to add the ingredients and turn on. I expected it to self freeze, rather then to store the bowl in the freezer.

Big Hit!
Barely was the icecream maker through the door before the kids were screaming for ice cream! The hardest thing about it is waiting the minimum 16 hours of freezing time the bowl requires before you can start! Needless to say we keep the bowl in the freezer all the time, as suggested, so we can make ice cream on a whim. The recipes in the included booklet are delicious, varied and easy enough for the kids to help with. Cleaning is a breeze and it all fits together for easy storage.

makes great icecream
Love this machine - have only had it a short while but have made a delicious caramel and burnt fig ice cream (a la Maggie Beer!) which was delicious and doesn't last 5 minutes with my family. My only criticism is that it is very noisy - have to put it in the spare bedroom with the door shut! ****** to kitchenware direct for the excellent service!

Great product, superb price!
First time user of Kitchenware Direct and certainly not the last. Prompt service and delivery, with price being cheaper than any other online or other store after researching. Ice Cream Maker is easy to use and clean. I have a son who has nut/peanut allergy with limited choice of commercial ice creams, his verdict 'this tastes better than the shops' followed by a mmmmmmmm and air waving praise! Enough said......

Cuisinart 2litre icecream maker
I have owned an icecream maker for 10 years. Sadly it was destroyed, along with many other appliances, during the recent Brisbane floods. The one appliance I have replaced is the Cuisinart Icecream maker - we decided we can live without home made pasta, fresh bread, blended soups, fresh juice and waffles- but not icecream ! Noise is not a problem - this machine churns heavy ingredients as they freeze - it has to make a noise ! It looks very streamlined & is simple to clean. The finished product is well churned & smooth I never occured to me to make cocktails in my previous machine so was delighted to find recipes for same included. We're thrilled with this machine & the prompt delivery of same.

Summer in Melbourne:( At least we had ice cream!
My first and certainly not last purchase from Kitchenware direct has been a great success! We have tried plain vanilla, honeycomb choc chip and mint choc chip-yum yum yum. Very simple and easy to use and clean. Little noisy but only for 20 mins or so. I use "thickened" cream and skim milk because they are always in the fridge and the icecream is beautifully smooth and creamy. Highly recommend - off now to make strawberry icecream for an after school snack:)

Great Product
This was a first time purchase from Kitchenware Direct, and a great experience. The Icecream Maker is fantastic and so easy to use. My first attemp was a mixed berry icecream and very yummy. I used recommended sugar amount as i used the frozen berrys, but next time i will cut the sugar content back as too sweet. Can't wait to try another flavour.......... well done Kitchenware Direct

Home Made Icecream - Yummy!
Fantastic fast service and delivery of my order. My new icecream maker arrived safely at home. The machine is a little noisy, however that would be due to the low gearing, to be able to mix the icecream as it sets ... but wow the taste of homemade fresh icecream is well worth it. For the more health conscious person, can play around with the recipes, so you don't have to have full fat. Just fantastic, I can't wait to try a sorbet!

Non Fattening Ice Cream
...because I don't add any sugar..only milk and fruit!..No cream, so it's relatively lo fat! A healthier alternative for someone who cannot stay away from icecream. Only problem is it takes up a lot of cupboard space, like so many appliances. If I were a designer, I would make multi function appliances, or ice cream makers with collapsable bowls!

Easy purchase
This purchase went well with kitchenware direct - you do a great job. We have enjoyed our ice cream maker although still fine-tuning our methods as have used it in really hot weather and the result is more like a frozen mousse but still refreshing and worthwhile.

Who wants ice cream????
This is one of my favourite kitchen appliances. I agree that it is a little loud, but we simply set it up in the garage and it does its thing and leaves us in peace in the kitchen. Highly recommend this product to anyone wanting to make ice cream at home. It is very simple to use and makes oh so delicious ice cream and frozen yoghurt and much much more. We have purchased the second bowl also - which is great as you don't have to wait to make a second batch. LOVE IT!

Easy and Delicious
I have been wanting an ice cream maker for a while and finally got this one for my birthday. It is very easy to use and makes delicous ice-cream. The Cuisinart 3 year warranty is an added bonus as few companies seem to back up their products with a decent warranty length.The only negative I would say is that it is noisy when its churning and the bowl does take a long time to freeze, so once you've used it, you have to wait another day to make a new batch of icecream! Kitchenwaredirects service and delivery was excellent so all up very pleased.

Fantastic Product!!!!! And Great service
I had forgetten what real icecream tasted like. It is very easy to make with the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker, and so good to know what is going into the ice cream: real food instead of artificial flavourings. If you are going to eat ice cream at least you know what is in it.

I Love My Ice Cream Maker!
Truly my favourite purchase this year (& this from a self confessed online shop-aholic & foodie). We have tried ice creams, sorbets, even strawberry dacquiries in our Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker without a single hitch. It pays to be organised in making your bases & cooling them down, but the machine itself could not be simplier to use - it only has an off/on switch! I love it so much I have started buying them & shipping them to my family (with the assistance of KitchenwareDirect's speedy delivery).

Fantastic Product & Awesome Service
Only used our new ice cream machine once but i am in love already, it was so easy to make and washing up is a breeze. If you have been thinking about getting a ice cream machine then look no further than the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. Also for awesome service & super fast postage you can't go anywhere else but Kitchenware Direct.

This is the first time I have purchased anything from Kitchen Direct - I am usually VERY cautious about buying online but this was a great experience: prompt service, quick delivery time and machine in perfect working order! So far I have made a chocolate and a mango sorbet - both very yummy!! I highly recommend this product - I am back to look for my next purchase! Thanks Kitchen Direct :)

This product is amazing, used twice a week so far -delicious icecream! It is effective within the 25 minute time frame to make the icecream. Delivery was prompt. I also have bought one for my daughter and will do the same for my son for christmas. A must kitchen gadget. By making your own icecream and yoghurts you know just what you are consuming.

Makes incredible ice cream
This gadget is unreal. We've tried ice-cream and sorbet and they are divine. Who needs store-bought ice-cream? Haven't done a cost comparison yet, so I hope it's economical. The only drawback is the noise. You can hardly hear yourself speak when it's on. But we don't let that stop us. We now lock it in the laundry before switching it on!

After receiving our Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker, you have no idea the excitement plus in our household. My husband is churning out ice cream in all flavours.................have been telling everyone how great the ice cream machine is and what wonderful service we have already received. We have'nt tried the frozen yoghurt or sorbets as yet, but all I can say is 'Bring On Summer'.

Thanks again, I'm sure we will do business again.

Enough sorbet to feed a small nation
I tried this machine out for the first time yesterday. I made ruby grapefruit sorbet and it was delicious! The machine is easy to store, clean and use. The only downside was it is a bit noisy for the 25 mins it needs to run for to make dessert. If you don't have an open plan kitchen like I do, this might not bother you! Overall a great product and I look forward to using it again as soon as I have room in my freezer for more goodies!

Best icecream ever!
Sick of horrible, tasteless icecream that melts on your way home from the shops and ends up icy? Then this is the product to get. After doing my research I finally decided on the CUISINART icecream maker, and not only does it look good it makes brilliant icecream. Sooooo creamy, and the recipe options are endless - in fact it's mind-boggling! Just make sure the freezer bowl is frozen properly or it won't work - my freezer took longer than the suggested. Also, very impressed with the service from Kitchenware Direct, and they had the best price too.

This brilliant little machine was ordered on a Thursday and delivered the next day to my amazement! The first test was to make some margaritas for friends coming over for dinner and to put it bluntly they were the best anyone had tasted (one person was an ex bar person) the next test was vanilla bean ice cream for a family do ... 2litres of ice cream between 8 people with no left overs, was silky smooth. Can't wait to make more, next I think will be frozen yogurt or hmmm maybe sorbet, decisions decisions : )

Great little treat-maker!
We bought this ice-cream maker after inspiration from a popular tv series. I've tried quite a few recipes from the booklet provided and I think I have produced some world class ice-creams, sorbets and gelatos. The deep dark chocolate ice-cream may not be cheap to make (I used Lindt chocolate) but it sure is decadent and extremely delicious! Forget store-bought $3 a tub ice-cream with all the additives and preservatives and go back to using good, wholesome cream, eggs and sugar to produce a treat the whole family will love. Just make sure you limit the number of ice-creams you make or you may need to put in some extra hours at the gym because they are just too irresistible!
