Creating up to 1-1/2 quarts of ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, or frozen drinks at home takes only about 20 minutes with this electric appliance, and salt and ice are not needed. After the machine's chilling chamber has been in the freezer for about eight hours the liquid between its walls becomes thoroughly frozen. The chamber then goes atop the power base, the unit's paddle goes into the chamber, the transparent top is locked in place, and the machine is turned on. Ingredients go into the chamber through an opening in the top as the paddle turns. The chamber chills the ingredients to whatever consistency is desired--though dense treats are hard to make because the paddle churns in air.
Chocolate chips, chopped fruit, nuts, and other special ingredients can be added toward the end. The nonstick chamber makes cleanup a snap. Storing it in the freezer ensures a frozen confection is only 20 to 40 minutes away when the mood strikes. The machine measures 10 inches in diameter and 15 inches high and weighs 9-1/2 pounds. It carries a three-year limited warranty. A detailed instruction booklet including many recipes comes included. --Fred Brack

For flavoring, I was always using a certain artificial vanilla flavor that I like. And because I like it, I use a lot of it. One of the main ingredients of this flavoring is propylene glycol. If any of you who read this are chemistry buffs, I'll bet you're laughing now. Propylene glycol is often used in food flavorings and colorings, but also is used as antifreeze when a non-toxic antifreeze is required. So I was pouring in a good deal of edible antifreeze with my ingredients--next time I'll just use chocolate or something!
So, if you're having trouble getting your ice cream to freeze and you've checked everything else, make sure your flavorings don't contain propylene glycol!!
January 4, 2017 Issue resolved and I have paperwork that I printed off from here. Now I just need to use it!!! Also, I was able to register at Cuisinart for warranty. Further follow-up after using.
January 8, 2017 I like the ice cream maker so far. I did a copy-cat Wendy's Frosty and it was delish!!!
This appliance is well-designed. The open top, meant for pouring in the mixture, also allows you to check the consistency (and, yes, snitch a spoonful for quality control purposes, of course.) The even, continuous turning is a big improvement over the handcranked model, which had you turn only sporadically. The design of the paddle pulls the frozen shell properly from the sides of the canister. I have to say, the Cuisinart works JUST GREAT!! There are a few things to observe for better results:
1. You should probably chill the ice cream mixture prior to freezing it in the machine. The directions and recipes included with the maker do not specifically tell you to do this, but even a cold mixture of refrigerated yogurt and peaches needed, in my opinion, to be pre-chilled.
2. You probably will want the extra freezer container, because the unit needs to freeze for at least 6, and best for 24 hours before you can make a batch. The extra unit allows you to make an additional batch immediately, or a second flavor. If you entertain, this is important.
3. The recipes tell you that it is "optional" to ripen the ice cream, that is, to freeze it before serving, for two hours. This really is a must, especially for yogurt and lower fat based recipes. A few mashes with a fork during the ripening can avoid crystal formation.
4. Frost-free freezers are not ideal for ice cream storage. The heat cycle that removes the frost does a real number on ice cream. If you don't plan on serving it right away, (hahah not a problem at our house) a deep freeze is best for storage.
Here is my own recipe that I used for my test of the ice cream maker:
Middletown Peach Festival Frozen Yogurt
2 cups low-fat plain yogurt (I use Stoneyfield, but any brand will work.)
5 very ripe, mid sized peaches (size of your fist) I got about 2 cups of frothy puree.
1/3 cup raw or organic sugar (can use superfine or granulated)
½ tsp Fiori di Sicilia flavoring (...You could probably substitute some vanilla and orange extracts, but the Fiori di Sicilia is best.)
Peel peaches by spearing them on a long fork and dipping them in a bath of boiling water for about 15-30 seconds. Run them under cool water and pull off the skins. Stone and quarter them.
Blend in sugar. Allow to mix, then stand so sugar dissolves completely (about 15 minutes. This is a not-too-sweet recipe, so you may want more. You can use extra fine sugar instead of the raw sugar. Or granulated.)
Add 2 cups of yogurt and blend well.
Stir in the Fiori di Sicilia flavoring.
Chill mixture for 30 minutes (optional but recommended.)
Set up ice cream maker with pre-frozen canister--the canister should have been frozen according to directions for at least 6 and best if 24 hours previously. Turn on, pour in mix. Allow machine to turn and freeze for 30 minutes.
Transfer frozen yogurt, which will be slushy, to a container (do NOT store the frozen yogurt in the Cuisinart freezer container!!!) and ripen for 2 hours before serving. A few stirs during the ripening improve the texture.
