I was so excited to finally receive this ice cream maker in the mail that I did it all: I make sorbet, frozen yogurt and ice cream. All came out very well. Note: eat the frozen yogurt immediately as it becomes very hard in the freezer and looses the smoothness commonly associated with frozen yogurt. I really enjoy having the two bowls. I've made two separate batches of desserts as well as a double batch. My freezer is stocked and I've never had so many wonderful choices of frozen dessert!

This appliance was larger than I visualized but it has worked great, is easy to use. I wish I had more recipes to try for the holidays! It has a sleek attractive look and is very well made. The concept of freezing the tubs compared to the old crank and salt method is so convenient. Don't touch the tubs with bare hands or you will get freezer burn!

This machine is PERFECT, it makes ice cream perfectly. I've tried other brands of ice cream machines,but this by far is the best. Right out of the box it made perfect ice cream, I am impressed. The quality of Cuisinart is superb. The cost of this ice cream maker is quite a value.
Thank you for producing a quality product that does EXACTLY as you state that it will. I will try making yogurt and sorbet next. Thank you

I worked in a gelato shop before and I am impressed that a machine of this price can create ice cream that almost rivals machines that cost a few thousand dollars.

I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because of the space the product takes up. It is as big as a toaster oven - just the motor stand - and the bowls take up a good part of your freezer. You have to be dedicated to making ice cream on a regular basis to get a 2 bowl model. However, on the upside, you can create 2 flavors simultaneously and it does make it easier to make ice cream in batches.

This product works as advertised. It will create ice cream, albeit, soft serve or gelato consistency ice cream in about 20-25 minutes. It is noisier than I thought (another reason for the 4 stars) - it's about as loud as your typical dishwasher (in terms of decibels). It sounds like a grinder when it works. I don't understand why it makes so much noise though, it must be the way the motor is designed.

Using this machine requires a little bit of planning. First, you must have the bowls frozen for at least 12 hours. I keep them in the freezer for 24 hours between batches. You must also use chilled ingredients. If you are going to heat up an ice cream mix, say, a custard style ice cream, make sure to chill those ingredients.

Don't overfill the container. If you plan on mixing in ingredients, I recommend leaving at least 3 inches of space from the top because ice cream liquids will expand when frozen. The fattiest parts of the ice cream (and the creamiest) stay at the bottom of the tub. The softer part of the ice cream stays at the top.

I have had this ice cream maker for a few weeks now and have made four or five batches (1/2 gallons) of smooth and creamy ice cream. Each side makes one quart and you can set the machine to make one or two quarts of ice cream by flipping a control lever on the front which turns off one side or lets both side run. This allows you to make up to two different flavors at the same time.

PROS
----
1. Works well - I read some reviews which said that they couldn't get the mix to harden. All I can say is I had no trouble whatsoever.
2. Works fast - If you follow the instructions (have a well frozen bowl and cold cream mix) it will start thickening after about ten minutes or less. By 20 to 25 minutes or less, it's as hard as it will get, about the consistency of soft serve ice cream like Dairy Queen. We usually eat one bowl right away and put the second bowls contents into another container and put it in the freezer overnight. The next day it's just like store bought (only fresher and much tastier!).
3. Good quality - (as good as your ingredients.) We followed the basic included recipes and had great results with those as well as experimenting some with a 50/50 cream & whole milk ratio to reduce some of the fat. We even tried making gelato with recipes for home ice cream makers I found elsewhere. Gelato actually has less fat than ice cream as it's mostly whole milk. I had very good results with gelato too.
4. Inexpensive - We paid ~$50 which is a great price for a device thats works as well as this does.

CONS
----
1. A little noisy. No big deal though, you just hear the motor turning. It's really not that bad.

Verified Purchase
After reading some of the reviews stating that the ice cream turned out like liquid instead of freezing I was worried if I had made a mistake purchasing this machine. Unfortunately our first batch turned out like a thick creamy liquid (our first recipe we tried was the premium vanilla) it froze after being put in a container in the freezer but would have been better if it had the right consistency when it was being churned. We had only put the bowls in the freezer for about 22 hours. This was not long enough, I would like to emphasize that it is very important that the bowls be well frozen before using. Last night we made the lime sherbert after the bowls had been in the freezer for a week and it turned out perfect! For those who had bad experiences I think your bowls were not frozen long enough or not thoroughly frozen. That would be the only way your ice cream would not turn out if you are following the recipe correctly. I would recommend this ice cream maker to anyone looking for a machine that makes good ice cream quickly. We'll be trying the frozen yogurt recipe next and can't wait!
