Freezing Time and Bowl Preparation
The freezer bowl must be completely frozen before you begin your recipe. The length of time needed to reach the frozen state depends on how cold your freezer is. For the most convenient frozen desserts and drinks, leave your freezer bowl in the freezer at all times. You can take it out any time for immediate use. In general, freezing time is between 6 hours and 22 hours. To determine whether the bowl is completely frozen, shake it. If you do not hear liquid moving, the cooling liquid is frozen. Before freezing, wash and dry the bowl. Wrap it in a plastic bag to prevent freezer burn. We recommend that you place the freezer bowl in the back of your freezer where it is the coldest. Your freezer should be set to 0°F to ensure proper freezing of all foods.
Making Frozen Desserts or Drinks
- Use Cuisinart recipes included in the Instruction Booklet or use your own recipe, making sure it yields 2 quarts or less. Do not fill the freezer bowl higher than 1/2-inch from the top. The ingredients will increase in volume during the freezing process. For best results, prepare the ingredients in a container from which it is easy to pour.
- Remove the freezer bowl from the freezer and place on the center of the base. The bowl will begin to defrost quickly once it has been removed from the freezer. Use it immediately after removing from freezer.
- Place mixing bowl arm in freezer bowl. Arm does not fit tightly. It just rests in the center of the bowl, with the circle side facing up.
- Place lid on the base. Easy lock lid mechanism allows the lid to rest on base in multiple positions.
- Turn the On/Off switch to ON position. Freezer bowl will begin to turn.
- Immediately pour ingredients through ingredient spout.
- Frozen desserts or drinks will be done in 25-35 minutes. The time will depend on the recipe and volume of the dessert or drink you are making. When the mixture has thickened to a soft serve consistency, it is done. If you desire a firmer consistency, transfer the dessert or drink to an airtight container and store in the freezer for two or more hours.
Ingredients such as chips and nuts should be added about 5 minutes before the recipe is complete. Once the dessert or drink has began to thicken, add the ingredients through the ingredient spout. Nuts and other ingredients should be no larger than a chocolate chip.
Top Customer Reviews
If you like to experiment with foods, this is a great purchase.
I had not previously owned an ice cream maker -- if you're in the same position, here's some things to expect:
* Don't buy one if you're simply trying to save money on ice cream for the family. The maker is costly, as are good ingredients.
* Good, rich ice cream requires cooking a custard-like mixture. Meaning double boiler on the stove, then a lengthy cooling process. Although you could avoid cooking and make a simple ice cream with the ice cream maker alone -- the results are not the same.
* The canister part of the 2 quart Cuisinart maker must be placed in the freezer for about 24 hours before each use. Keep this in mind if you have a packed freezer and/or tend to like instead gratification.
* The machine is noisy. A bit noisier that most blenders. And it needs to run for about a half hour.
(pictured - fresh strawberry from the farmer's market made me delirious!)
My family made ice cream often using a hand crank machine. At NO time did the consistency of the end result turn out to be a 'hard ball' scoop. We did try getting the cream to a thicker consistency; the result was broken broken cranks and gears. I did not expect this machine to make 'hard' ice cream and it doesn't. That's fine.
It wouldn't take much to reduce the noise of the machine. The noise isn't bad but it certainly could be less with a bit of intelligent design.
One note that may be helpful: The instructions say to freeze the can for a minimum of six hours or until solid (no noise when shaken). My freezer is -4ºF. At the six hour mark, the tub was indeed frozen solid. I had a batch of mix in the fridge waiting on the bucket so it was 'ice cream time' I thought.
Nope. The can was NOT frozen enough. 40oz. of mix started to freeze, but by the 20 minute mark it was starting to melt. The second batch, the tub was in the freezer for 18 hours. IT worked just fine..and with 54oz. of mix.
A frozen 'solid' tub is not necessarily cold enough.
Watch for places that raise the price of an item just because you looked at it. That happened...to the tune of 27% as a matter of fact. That's a pretty big chunk! Two days after purchase the price went back to what it was when I first looked at it.
