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.
Top customer reviews
I have had it now for about 3 weeks and finally figured out how to use it.
First off I would have given this a 5 star rating but for the fact that it is quite noisy, especially while churning the ice cream. Once the churning stops the noise level drops dramatically.
Several people have stated the unit doesn't produce a product of the proper consistency. They say that the machine turns off before the ice cream is done, thus producing a product with a soupy center.
It is true that this is the case when the unit stops turning the dasher. However, when the dasher stops turning, doesn't mean the process if complete. With most recipes the directions recommend setting the timer for 40 to 45 minutes.
With most recipes, the unit will stop beating the mixture anywhere from 25 to 30 or so minutes - but the chilling compressor will continue the cool down the container and continue to harden the ice cream for the time remaining on the timer.
You will have to practice a little trial and error with the timer. Not letting the compressor run long enough after the dasher stops and you get a soupy center, let it go too long and you get a solid tub that makes removing the dasher and product difficult. If the former is the case, let the compressor run longer - if the latter, remove the tub and let sit for a minute or two then remove the dasher and ice cream.
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.
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.
