Oster FRSTIC-WDB First Impressions

"DELICIOUS!"

The recipes tend to be too much volume for this ice cream maker. DO NOT scrape it out with metal utensils. It makes ice cream in about 20 minutes. I read the reviews carefully before selecting this machine. The higher the humidity the more it overflows. Also don't put bits of fruit or nuts into the churning mixture. I got that recipe from a Real Foods cookbook.

Oster FRSTIC-WDB Final Thoughts

"While still soft serve."

If you want that, then pay 5x+ the price for a different type of machine. Sounded like the bearings on the machine were about to go bad. There are two main parts as far as what makes the ice cream. But it makes damn good ice cream, gelato, and sorbet. I will update this review after I have talked to them. Any higher and it will not make ice cream, more of a slush. I used the ice cream starter packs from William Sonoma.

"Custard Gelato, 3&4."

Some users have complained the Lid doesn't stay on the ICE-70. Just be nearby to turn it off, and all will work fine. With 4-5 ingredients only, there are no preservatives or flavoring chemicals. Took 35 minutes to make this batch and I modified it and made it low carb. 4- Make sure your bowl is totally frozen before you start, shake it to make sure! Made a rocky road with walnuts from the back of the cupboard, we could tell. DO NOT scrape it out with metal utensils.

My machine arrived in perfect condition and sooner than expected. I also tend to find the faster speed makes the ice cream set up quicker. The ice cream froze well and was absolutely delicious.

In short, this machine works beautifully and its make quality ice cream.

"While still soft serve."

Nothing really negative to say about this machine at all. To that, I add the simple syrup or apple juice. Don't blame a perfectly good product for failing to recue you from your mistakes. Just be nearby to turn it off, and all will work fine. Start the machine running and add the puree slush. This is essential that the bowl be frozen through with no sloshing sound. Going to try to make a peanut butter ice cream this weekend.

"A definite plus!"

Earlier this summer I used the ICE-30 at my parents' home. Have I learned a lot about ice cream, you bet. Overall, no regrets buying this product, and I would recommend it. To that, I add the simple syrup or apple juice. Did I get the warranty for 2 years, sure I did. The machines' lifespan may not be very long if its already making noise.

"Well constructed."

I used the ice cream starter packs from William Sonoma. One-half cup of this is quite filling, since there is no air whipped in. Do not scratch the interior, it will cause problems later. I don't know what is wrong with it. Then of course it isn't going to work right. With 4-5 ingredients only, there are no preservatives or flavoring chemicals. I can make anything from ice cream to sorbet to some really fun adult desserts.

"I could not believe it!"

I used the ice cream starter packs from William Sonoma. I highly recommend this Cuisinart ice cream maker. Also don't put bits of fruit or nuts into the churning mixture. You cannot submerge the drum in water. It works very well and easy to use and clean. It gets stashed in the fridge overnight. Also do not put the drum back into the freezer until it thaws completely out.

"I will use this weekly."

I will update this review after I have talked to them. Any higher and it will not make ice cream, more of a slush. Mom doesn't like the Non Dairy offerings in the store. Spread the yogurt out thin on a cookie sheet and slip it in the freezer. If you were wanting ice cream after dinner. That being said, it still works perfectly, it's just a little more awkward now. 4- Make sure your bowl is totally frozen before you start, shake it to make sure!

"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.

"Great response."

Another note, use the Tevolo double wall storage containers, the 1. Fingers crossed on the noise issue. The machines' lifespan may not be very long if its already making noise. Rich, creamy, decadent, delicious, and better for you. Definitely recommended for anyone who likes homemade ice cream! Freezing the ingredients to a slushy texture helps a lot.

"Very happy, thank you!"

The flapper works well and it is all easy to clean. My machine arrived in perfect condition and sooner than expected. And You MUST WASH THE FREEZER BOWL BY HAND. The It Won't Make Ice Cream Immediately, It Makes Soft Serve. So, I am now super happy with this machine. I agree with other reviewers that it's very loud.

"Very happy about that!"

I will call Cuisinart Service Center tomorrow and see if they can help. I can make anything from ice cream to sorbet to some really fun adult desserts. Run the ice cream maker until the yogurt is the desired consistency. He offered to send me a new lid; as it turned out I did not need it. Definitely worth the price and I would definitely recommend it. I agree with other reviewers that it's very loud. You can eat it immediately after it's made, but better to freeze a bit.

"It is not too loud."

Make it and then add toasted coconut flakes, and chocolate syrup. Start the machine running and add the puree slush. Nothing really negative to say about this machine at all. Sounded like the bearings on the machine were about to go bad. Its going to be difficult to freeze and unit as one texture. Mom doesn't like the Non Dairy offerings in the store. It does get a little messy at the end of the cycle, but its super easy to clean.

"Perfection."

It doesnt have its own refridgeration unit. Admittedly, the design is probably better and more secure on the ICE-30. To that, I add the simple syrup or apple juice. Do not scratch the interior, it will cause problems later. There is a paddle and a drum, aka the freezer bowl. Overall, no regrets buying this product, and I would recommend it. This drum is what chills the ice cream.
