This review is from: Cuisinart ICE-20 Automatic 1-1/2-Quart Ice Cream Maker, White (Kitchen)
OK, I'm a bit of an ice cream nut, but never cook anything. I live in New York City -- how do you think all those delivery places stay in business? Guys like me who don't know a spatula from a staple gun.
So it was going out a bit on the limb for me to buy this ice cream maker. But along with the Ben & Jerry's book, it actually seems to be remarkably easy to make really really tasty ice cream in no time flat. I've just finished my second batch (peanut butter) and the first (chocolate) has been in my freezer for 2 days. They're both really excellent.
Some other reviewers have complained of freezing time for the cylinder. Well, thank god it takes a day or two to freeze over, or you'd be eating ice cream 3 times a day.
I'm quite pleased with this purchase and would recommend it highly.
UPDATE: OK, like most guys, a gadget bought is a gadget forgotten. It's five months later and I've made exactly 3 batches of ice cream with this thing. That means I'm paying about $113 / pint or so, right? :) Anyway, I'm sure when I do use it again, each of those pints will be as good as the first three!
