From the Manufacturer
The Cuisinart Supreme Ice Cream Maker
Now you can delight family and friends with decadently rich homemade ice creams, light fruit sorbets, creamy sherbets and deliciously healthy frozen yogurt. The Cuisinart Supreme Commercial Quality Ice Cream Maker has a built in compressor freezer that eliminates the need to pre-freeze the bowl, so frozen desserts and drinks are ready faster. Don't forget, extras can be added during the cycle through the opening of the transparent lid.
With the touch of a button, this stunning brushed stainless dessert maker automatically starts the process. Just add the ingredients to the mixing bowl, set the timer and create the smoothest, creamiest frozen desserts.
Transparent Lid with Opening
The transparent lid has an opening on top to let you add extra ingredients while the unit is in operation. Plus, you can watch the blending process in action. Add your favorite ingredients - luscious creams, fresh fruits, chocolate chunks, nuts, and even brownies - for the kind of smooth, fabulous frozen treats you usually go out to enjoy.
With the Cuisinart Supreme Ice Cream Maker there is nothing to freeze ahead of time. There's no need to pre-freeze the bowl. With a commercial-style compressor built into the Cuisinart Supreme Ice Cream Maker, you can make batch after batch without waiting. The ice cream making process is fully automatic. Just fill the bowl and set the timer. The Cuisinart Supreme Ice Cream Maker turns off when your frozen treat is complete. And, after making one batch, you can make another and another without waiting.
Simply add your ingredients and set the timer. Unit turns off automatically when the cycle is complete and your frozen dessert is ready to enjoy.
The top quality construction of the Cuisinart Supreme Ice Cream Maker includes a heavy-duty, built-in mixing motor, removable bowl, and mixing arm. The Cuisinart Supreme Ice Cream Maker's motor is strong enough to handle ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet, and sorbet. Expect professional performance and perfect results.
Making Frozen Desserts or Drinks
Unit should remain upright at all times. If the unit is turned on its side or upside down, you will need to put it in upright position and wait 24 hours before using.
- Prepare recipe ingredients from the Cuisinart recipes book or from your own recipe. If you use your own recipe, be sure it yields 1½ quarts or less. For best results, prepare ingredients in an easy pour container.
- Place mixing bowl in unit.
- Pour ingredients into bowl.
- Put motor arm and lid together. Place stem of mixing paddle in the hole of bottom of the motor arm. Place hole of lid over stem until it is resting on motor arm. Push inward onto mixing arm and tabs will fit into place.
- Place mixing paddle on stem. Paddle does not fit tightly. (It is snug enough to hold paddle in but not to lock in).
- Place lid and motor arm on unit.
- Turn dial to selected time (maximum: 60 minutes) Processing will begin. The unit will stop mixing and turn itself off when set time has elapsed. Audible tone will sound to alert you that the unit is off. Note: If frozen dessert reaches maximum thickness before the set time has elapsed, the unit will stop mixing. If you don't shut off the unit manually, the timer will continue counting down to "O" and will then shut itself off.
- Frozen desserts or drinks will be done in less than 35-60 minutes. Processing time depends on the recipe, and the amount of dessert being made, and the temperature of the ingredients being used. Soft ice cream takes about 35-45 minutes; hard ice cream about 45-60 minutes. For firmer consistency, transfer the dessert 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 has began to thicken, add the ingredients through the ingredient spout. Nuts and other ingredients should be no larger than a chocolate chip.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The machine is a little noisy, and this is even more true later in the freezing process just as the product is getting to the point where it's too frozen for the motor to handle. Indeed, ours lets out an almost disturbing screeching rhythm towards the end, and then a lot of loud clicking as it finally seizes up, but we'll take the noise when the end result is this good.
I see a lot of reviews that ding the product because the ice cream doesn't come out the way you find it in the stores. I think this is a pretty common misconception, and one that I likely would have fallen victim to myself had I not done a good deal of reading about the process beforehand. You can quite literally pour your ice cream out of the freezing bowl when the machine is done. You are not going to have "hard" ice cream without at least an hour or two in a freezer (depending upon how cold yours gets). This is not a flaw, it's just part of the process. Make no mistake, the 'finished' product when the machine is done is ready to be enjoyed, it's just going to be soft. We enjoy it that way, and we freeze a lot of it as well -- the consistency after an hour or two is exactly what you'd get from the stores.
My only complaint about the machine is that I feel like Cuisinart really skimped on the quality of some of the construction materials. You see the pictures here on Amazon, and imagine a nice sturdy stainless exterior. The reality is that the mixing arm (the structure on top of the unit) is silver covered plastic. The top surface of the machine itself is silver plastic. The paddle itself is a somewhat weak feeling white plastic (I can completely see this breaking in the future, but replacements are cheap). The cover is a slightly more impressive clear plastic. Don't misunderstand, it's a very nice machine, and attractive/professional looking enough that it will look at home in many nicer home kitchens, it's just sort of unfortunate that basically everything these days has that "made in China" feel to it.
Finally, do not be without Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book. Even if you may not be a fan of their style and flavors, this book offers a wonderful introduction to ice cream making, including different variations of the base cream, a wide variety of recipes and ideas, as well as baked goods and sauces to go with your creations. To top it all of, they include a brief history of their company and themselves, which is an entirely entertaining read. We also picked up The Best Ice Cream Maker Cookbook Ever, which was far more comprehensive in terms of flavors, but a little less quick and easily accessible. Each compliments the other.
1. Use whole eggs, not just yokes, and beat them until fluffy before you add the sweetener.
3. Add the cream to the egg/sweetener mix and beat just until the cream starts to increase in volume.
4. If you are using artificial sweetener do not use sucralose as it does not blend well enough to prevent large ice crystal formation. I found that a Stevia baking mix (part stevia and part sucrose) is a great substitute for plain sugar with 75% fewer calories.
That's it. The Cuisinart ICE-50BC although noisy makes great ice cream if you use it in the manner I have indicted.
UPDATE 07/22/2012: The machine is still turning out ice cream. I recently made a batch of chocolate cashew for a gathering and it turned out terrific. I don't understand all the bad reviews posted for this machine. Despite the noise it's a work horse and making multiple batches back to back is a huge plus. After having owned the maker for over a year I will say I have absolutely no regrets.
