Customer Reviews

Very easy to use and very easy to clean.
Lotta Persson sweden
We've never had ours stop turning, even though the ice cream gets too thick to dispense.
Amazon Customer
It took approximately 20 minutes to make the perfect soft serve ice cream.

In reading the reviews for this product, I've noticed that some people may have been expecting something more than what Cuisinart is selling. Having used this unit several times now, here are my impressions and thoughts.
- The unit uses a freezer bowl to freeze the product. That means that the bowl MUST be frozen solid and the product MUST be very well chilled, otherwise you will not get good results. We have just kept our freezer bowls in the deep freeze when not in use so that we can make ice cream fairly quickly. It's probably best to mix up your soft serve mix at least an hour in advance and put it in the coldest part of your fridge or (as another reviewer suggested) in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to get it as cold as possible without prematurely freezing it.
- The freezer bowl doesn't have a huge capacity. It can make "10-12" servings - if your servings are small. 6-8 is probably more like it. If you want more, make certain you purchase an additional bowl and keep it frozen.
- The instructions on time expectations generally say 10-15 minutes, and this can be true if you chill the ice cream mixture very thoroughly. Otherwise it will take longer, probably more like 15-20 minutes.
- The first serving or so may be fairly soupy - I have found that I can dispense some into a cup and then re-add that into the top of the bowl.
- The "mix-ins" really don't mix in to the soft serve at all, they are really topping dispensers. If you're expecting something like a DQ Blizzard, it's not the same. Also, don't over-fill (or pack in) the mix in bins. I've had good luck with chopped peanuts, sprinkles and the mini M&Ms.

The differences between this unit and a more conventional ice cream freezer are mainly that this unit has a freezable bowl vs.

For soft serve and ice cream cone lovers, this Cuisinart Mix-It-In Soft Serve Machine is a fun and effective kitchen gadget with the novelty of three built-in topping dispensers. Follow the instructions and adapt the recipes and you can get tasty soft serve comparable to your favorite soft serve shop.

If you've been doing your homework, you're apt to become confused, as I did, as to the reason why so many reviewers rave about this machine whereas the other half claim that it simply doesn't work. Most complaints seemingly center around the fact that the bowl must be frozen, and if your freezer doesn't have the space or doesn't get cold enough it is nearly impossible to obtain desirable results. For the money, consumers seemingly expect that these machines will refrigerate the soft serve ice cream -- but they don't. Yes, you can buy ice cream makers that self-refrigerate the ingredients as they mix but those generally cost much more, do not produce soft serve and do not offer a dispenser. In other words, apples to oranges.

I feel fortunate to have read reviewer tips from successful owners here on Amazon prior to purchase. Had I not, I too may have been among those who are disappointed with the product. Instead, I learned that while the user manual suggests freezing the bowl for 15 hours, 24 may be necessary (toward the back of the freezer). Better yet, if you are able to store the bowl in the freezer it makes it much easier to use the machine spontaneously.

We bought this ice cream maker thinking we could use it for a big party we were having. It turns out that the freezer bowl will give you about 10 - 12 servings before it needs refreezing. So we opted not to use it for the party (not enough servings) but instead use it for our family.

I was a little apprehensive about buying this product since similar product reviews were none to flattering. This unit howover seems to work just fine.

The instructions claim that the ice cream is ready to serve in about 12 - 15 minutes but we found that 20 minutes was needed to reach the right consistency. But, once it's ready, the ice cream poured out perfectly (we even got the knack of twirling the column of ice cream into our cones). We've decided that the vanilla ice cream recipe is our family's favorite.

Clean up was a snap since all the parts can be easily removed and cleaned.

We tried the condiment dispensers and my kids loved it. We found that certain things don't work well if they aren't chopped finely or if they don't have a slippery surface (like m&m's). Otherwise, it's cool to have the 'extras' intermixed with the ice cream.

Overall, this product is nicely engineered and works very well.

We just used this machine tonight, and we are VERY pleased with it.

I read through all the 48 other comments on this page before buying, and was a little daunted by the negatives, but we promised the kids to get the machine, so we took the plunge.

Thought we would need a second bowl since we have 7 kids, but found it not so. We used regular sized Keebler Waffle Cones, piled to the top but not beyond, and everyone got one (even Mom and Dad) with a couple of the bigger eaters getting seconds.

Here are my observations:

1) The bowl gets plenty cold if your freezer is plenty cold. Folks down below who claim they had cold freezers and their bowls didn't get cold enough ... don't know what to say about 'em. 'Cold' is one of those things that either it is, or it ain't. Enough said.

I started dispensing after 15 minutes, because I was afraid the bowl would start warming up, but as I got to the last cones, I noticed the ice cream continued to harden and look more "professional" as it dispensed. Next time I'll wait until 20.

After the bowl had been out of the deep freeze for 40 minutes, we rinsed it in HOT water, and the water froze solid to the bowl. That's cold.

2) The mix in thingy worked perfectly. I couldn't believe how neat-o that was. Follow the directions on sizes, and you won't go wrong.

3) I took the advice downstream and avoided the Cuisinart recipes. We just used our family favorite old fashined vanilla, with the raw eggs, flour, salt, sugar, milk, and cream. No problems. I made our usual 6 or so quarts that we put in the full-sized ice cream freezer, so we have left-overs for tomorrow.

Final analysis: Cold freezer, follow directions. That simple. Sucker works like a charm. I had kids hugging me and thanking me for buying the machine - it doesn't get much better than that.
