This Cuisinart ice-cream maker has been building its stellar reputation for some time now, and buyers are extremely satisfied with its features and the ice-cream it churns out! It’s the quarter of the sizes if those bulky ice-cream machines that have a built-in compressor, so it will not take up much space on your counter top. This also makes it very easy to store as it will fit into any kitchen cabinet!
You can also make frozen yogurt, sorbet, and gelato with this machine, so you’re not only limited to ice-cream. It whips a decent amount of air into the mixture, but not too much to make it too airy and fluffy. You still get that rich creamy texture. The consistency will of course depend on how long you run it but you can easy peer in through the opening for ingredients to ascertain to which point the cream is condensed. Also, that opening is large enough for you to conveniently add chocolate chip, dried fruits or nuts into the mix if you so desire.
The stainless steel finish on this great machine makes it very attractive and durable to boot! There are no plastic parts on the outside casing which means that your machine will be serviceable for quite a long time! The motor revs and revs, and has enough strength to churn for years! Take note that the machine is built with North American standards in mind and will work only in US and Canada.
The freezer bowl is doubly insulated so it keeps your ice-cream mixture cool for a long time, allowing it to achieve proper consistency. Make sure to properly chill the bowl, leaving it in the freezer for 24 hours before use. To check if it is properly chilled, shake it about. If there is no slushing then you’re ready to go.
Cuisinart ICE-30BC Pure Indulgence 2-Quart Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, and Ice Cream Maker is an affordable alternative to those very expensive compressor machines and makes equally good ice-cream. One of its largest selling points is the fact that it makes delicious ice-cream time in and time out, doing it very quietly. Getting this machine is a great decision for families that will prepare ice-cream often!
