We all scream for ice cream machines!

So, you’ve made the decision to buy an ice cream machine and want to know which is the right one for you? Well look no further. The Cuisinart Ice Cream Machines we stock will have you whipping up a range of delightful frozen treats in no time. Deciding which to buy comes down to a number of things; how often you will use the machine, the amount you’re willing to spend and what exactly you want to be able to make with your machine.

The Rolls Royce of Ice Cream Makers

The Rolls Royce of Ice Cream Makers is the Cuisinart Ice Cream Machine with Compressor. Fast, efficient and nice to look at. It is a fully automatic machine with commercial quality compressor and unlike most ice-cream makers on the market, it requires little forethought with ice-cream, frozen yoghurt or sorbet ready to indulge in less than 30 minutes and no pre-freezing to worry about, meaning you won’t need to decide a day in advance that you’re craving some delicious homemade frozen delights. It is the most expensive of the Cuisinart Ice-Cream Machines, but its usability is infinitely more convenient and superior.

The Favourites!

The Ice Cream Maker 2L and the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker 1.5L are the most frequently purchased items in the Cuisinart range. The affordable, fully-automatic makers have heavy duty motors that churn out frozen desserts and drinks in less than half an hour.

The difference between the two lie in their material construction, size and power. The Cuisinart Ice Cream, Yoghurt and Sorbet Maker has brushed stainless steel housing, 2L freezer bowl and a 50 watt motor, while the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker has an aluminium alloy 1.5L freezer bowl and 25W power. Both machine types have large ingredient sprouts for adding delicious mix-ins and double insulated freezer bowls that need to be frozen for 24 hours before use.

Something a little different…

The Cuisinart Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker brings the Mr Whippy touch into your kitchen. With a capacity to make up to 1.5L of ice cream, the machine uses a freezer-hardened bowl that creates delicious soft-serve in just twenty minutes. This machine also has three individual topping bins with pull-tab controls that can mix contents in with the ice cream as it pours and a cone holder that completes the mini ice cream store-like experience the Cuisinart Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker evokes.

The Verdict:

All four of these ice-cream machines offer fun and convenient ways to create your favourite frozen treats in the comfort of your home. With the festive season upon us, these machines and makers make fantastic Christmas presents and would also be a perfectly fun house warming present to gift your friends and family with.

      I’ve been wanting an Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker for ages and with summer peeking around the corner my homemade ice cream cravings have kicked into high gear! Thanks for the breakdown, great info!

      Good review! I was given the 2L machine last year and have been making my own low fat, fresh fruit frozen yoghurt ever since.
      Top machine!

      I’m saving my money to buy the big ice cream machine, I’ve wanted this machine for a long time now, and through summer I make a lot of ice creams and have come up with my own recipes which have been a big hit, when I buy this machine it will give me 2 ice cream machines as I also have the large sunbeam as well, which I’ve had for over 5 years, and its had a lot of work out, and is a great machine as well, but I’m looking forward to buying the cruisart in the new year, and hoping its on special still. Merry Christmas everyone, and happy new year to everyone at Kitchenware direct.

        Thanks, Andrea. We can assure you the Cuisinart is well worth it! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you, too!

      The Cuisineart with a compressor unfortunately is not a patch on our really cheap Breville model that you freeze the bowl to use. The Cuisineart seems to churn the ‘lightness’ out of icecream, the Breville doesn’t. The Cuisineart does make great sorbets
