"Simple, 2."

Next we made a raspberry frozen yogurt and it came out PERFECT. I did that and it was way easier to read. Just the right size for the 2 of us, works well, does the job. Made a rocky road with walnuts from the back of the cupboard, we could tell. Then of course it isn't going to work right. The paddle and cover can be washed in the dishwasher which brings me to reason 2. I've had this ice cream maker for about 6 years.

NutriChef NCIM30 Final Thoughts

"Second batch- LOUD."

I can not say enough about this wonderful machine. If this did ever break down, I would probably buy this one again. It works very well and easy to use and clean. When it's done in the ice cream maker it goes into the freezer. This is essential that the bowl be frozen through with no sloshing sound. One gallon of delicious ice cream in approximately one hour! If you were wanting ice cream after dinner.

"No question."

Definitely worth the price and I would definitely recommend it. You can eat it immediately after it's made, but better to freeze a bit. Its going to be difficult to freeze and unit as one texture. Also do not put the drum back into the freezer until it thaws completely out. The It Won't Make Ice Cream Immediately, It Makes Soft Serve. And You MUST WASH THE FREEZER BOWL BY HAND. I have not had any problems that other people have had with the unit.

"DELICIOUS!"

It gets stashed in the fridge overnight. When it's done in the ice cream maker it goes into the freezer. I highly recommend this if you love making ice cream. Sounded like the bearings on the machine were about to go bad. The recipe in the owners manual for vanilla ice cream is HEAVEN. Enter the 2-quart Cuisinart programmable Ice Cream Maker. Rich, creamy, decadent, delicious, and better for you.

"I've used several times."

So, after comparing products and reading reviews, I bought this one. After I called Cuisinart, it occurred to me what caused the problem. I used the ice cream starter packs from William Sonoma. Took 35 minutes to make this batch and I modified it and made it low carb. I highly recommend this if you love making ice cream. The ICE-70 has a slightly smaller fill spout but comes with a cover. The ice cream froze well and was absolutely delicious.

"The bucket is seamless!"

First the bowl is not dishwasher safe. Start the machine running and add the fruity yogurt slush. When it's done in the ice cream maker it goes into the freezer. If you want that, then pay 5x+ the price for a different type of machine. There are two main parts as far as what makes the ice cream. After I called Cuisinart, it occurred to me what caused the problem. Those are really the only two drawbacks about this particular machine I have noticed.

Run the ice cream maker until the yogurt is the desired consistency. Let it churn more air as the machine runs, 3. If you were wanting ice cream after dinner. It was frozen solid when I used it and my ice cream came out perfect. So in this case, the problem was caused by me not putting it on a level surface.

"A definite plus!"

All were delicious and it's made very quickly. As far as durability, it seems well made, but time will tell how it holds up. I got that recipe from a Real Foods cookbook. There are two main parts as far as what makes the ice cream. Spread the yogurt out thin on a cookie sheet and slip it in the freezer. Next we made a raspberry frozen yogurt and it came out PERFECT. Another note, use the Tevolo double wall storage containers, the 1.

"Just get it already."

I also tend to find the faster speed makes the ice cream set up quicker. Going to try to make a peanut butter ice cream this weekend. Made great chocolate ice cream the very first batch I tried. Have I learned a lot about ice cream, you bet. Any higher and it will not make ice cream, more of a slush. Reviewed the reviews and decided to purchase it. It does get a little messy at the end of the cycle, but its super easy to clean.

"Doesn't bother me."

This thing works well if you follow directions! Admittedly, the design is probably better and more secure on the ICE-30. I have used this 3 times in the first week and really love it. So in this case, the problem was caused by me not putting it on a level surface. First the bowl is not dishwasher safe. Do not scratch the interior, it will cause problems later. It is also easy to clean the components.

"Home made ice cream."

Don't blame a perfectly good product for failing to recue you from your mistakes. As far as durability, it seems well made, but time will tell how it holds up. This drum is what chills the ice cream. Each batch of ice cream has been very consistent in texture. Any higher and it will not make ice cream, more of a slush. Freezing the ingredients to a slushy texture helps a lot. Today I went to make another batch of ice cream and now the lid will not lock down.

"Espresso Gelato."

Took 35 minutes to make this batch and I modified it and made it low carb. I highly recommend this if you love making ice cream. We really love the ICE-70, having used it about six times now. Then of course it isn't going to work right. To be honest one of my best purchases here. It works very well and easy to use and clean. But it makes damn good ice cream, gelato, and sorbet.

So in this case, the problem was caused by me not putting it on a level surface. The recipe in the owners manual for vanilla ice cream is HEAVEN. The higher the humidity the more it overflows. The recipes tend to be too much volume for this ice cream maker. After I called Cuisinart, it occurred to me what caused the problem. You could burn out the motor that way.
