Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker is NANCY APPROVED!
I scream. You scream. We all scream for ICE CREAM!
I love ice cream and advancements in DIY ice cream making has become so easy thanks to the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker.
I purchased my Cuisinart machine over 10 years ago, and it has been a worthwhile addition to my various kitchen tools. It is incredibly easy to use, reasonably priced and has been a loyal companion in producing delicious ice cream. Of course, I am the one creating all the delectable flavors, but it does spin-spin-spin in circles to deliver the final results, which I cannot do.
Here is how easy it is:
Freezer Bowl has been in your freezer for 24 hours or more
Select your favorite ingredients
Mix and chill your ingredients as appropriate (The time to chill is optional, but I recommend it)
Place the chilled mixer in the freezer bowl with paddle
Add cover and turn the machine on
After 20 minutes or so you should have yummy ice cream
Variables include how cold your freezer bowl is, the temperature in your kitchen and desired texture
You can create soft serve or firm ice cream as well as frozen yogurt and sorbet. The machine comes with multiple recipes to help you get started, which I found very useful in the early days.
As you see, I use the Cuisinart Model ICE-21, but they have lots of other fancy models with various perks. It all depends on how much you want to spend and your needs, but again, for the price and ease of use, the Cuisinart ICE-21 has been consistently terrific, and this is why it is NANCY APPROVED!
