Cuisinart ICE-20 Automatic 1-1/2-Quart Ice Cream Maker, White
(1103 customer reviews)
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

Read This if yours only makes ice cream "soup"
The first several times I used this product, it didn't seem to work--the ice cream never really froze, it just turned into a very cold soupy sludge. I had checked all the obvious things--made sure the bowl was completely frozen, made sure my ingredients were well-chilled, didn't overload it and let it run the recommended amount of time. I was going to return it, but thanks to all the positive reviews here, I thought maybe there was something I was doing wrong.
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!!

This is a great ice cream maker!
We have been using this ice cream maker every week since it has arrived. We keep the canister in the freezer all the time, so we are always ready to make dairy free ice cream. One thing I have learned since using this, is to make sure you turn on the machine and let it run a little bit before pouring in the ingredients. This will keep the ice cream from sticking to the sides. This is a great ice cream maker!

My review After Ten Years
Does a remarkably good job and is a good value for the price. To get the best results, follow the directions, including letting the ice cream rest in the freezer several hours (one hour?) before enjoying. I found that I need a sharp-edged hard plastic spatula (long) to scrape the walls down while it is working; otherwise, the cold transfer from the wall become slowed by the 'crust' of clinging ice cream mix. Also, it works best if you do not overload it. Obviously mine is robust and reliable.
