House is selling Cuisinart Ice Cream Makers for $79 for 24 hours only. Free Shipping on all items too.
This is cheap and according to my wife this is the best brand of ice cream maker.
The only slight negative is that it is the smaller model which might be perfect for some.
$10 cheaper than VictoriaBasement, which was the cheapest price I could find when I was buying mine
It makes about 1L or 1.5L if you don't mind it overflowing a bit
not a great deal compared to other brands. but its the lowest price i ever seen. pretty good unit.
I bought one. was this a good move?
meh, should have got one with a compressor, basically the way these work is you put the bowel in the freezer, freeze it for 12-24 hours, put milk/cream/sugar/vanilla essence in the frozen bowl and then attach it to the mixing machine, doesnt make ice cream, just soft serve… mine does only runny soft serve as well!
these things are dodgy, you think your getting a ice cream maker but at best its soft serve.
you can however put the soft serve in the freezer for 6-7 hours mixing it a few times to make real ice cream,
I currently have macadamia, passion, mango, banana icecream… only put one banana in but man it's overpowering! taste good but!
however all that said, still pretty cool, my newwave brand one makes 2 litres too, just dont think your getting an automatic ice cream maker!
It works a lot better if you mix up the ice cream batter beforehand, then chill it, then use it with the ice cream machine. Much better than any soft serve i've ever tasted, and much better than all of the normal priced ice creams in the supermarket.
You are making the lazy mans icecream which can taste nice but if you make one of the recipes in the book which requires you to make a custard base (not the custard in the fridge at Coles) you will get a firmer ice cream and if you chill it for a few hours it can be better than any off the shelf stuff.
Vanilla essence slows the freezing down that's why it's still very runny.
Thanks for the tips guys, yeah i mixed and cooled the ingredience on my second batch- worked better, still not what i'd call icecream though…
The custard base is what my ol man tried to make but i was aready using the machine so ended up trying to just freeze/mix it… which didnt work out that great.
still fun to play around with thats for sure.
might try the custard base as per your suggestion.
just saying i wouldnt call it an automatic icecream maker!
We have one and are very happy. I got it for the same price on the runout of the previous model
Shut up and take my money..
Has anyone used this for Frozen Yoghurt, Sorbet & Soy Ice-cream? Im curious to how they may have turned out.
not this one, but one with a bowl, see my comments above…
I can tell you it doesn't work if you just pour in normal custard. Not sure why, it seems to freeze much harder than the 'ice cream custard' you make from the recipe. The instructions do have a variety of different styles of frozen desert you can make.
We have the 2L cuisinart model and have made both frozen yoghurt and sorbet. The frozen yoghurt was ok, but froze very hard. The sorbet (mango) was easy and amazing. Hoping to make more soon :)
