We know that the summer is already gone, but we couldn't wait until next year to share with you our review of the Cuisinart Professional Ice Cream Maker.
We already said this in our last ice cream maker review, but there is no substitute for delicious homemade ice cream, made using your choice of fresh ingredients. Whether you want to try out vegan or dairy-free ice cream or simply just reduce the sugar content in your recipe, it couldn’t be easier.
Unfortunately one of the biggest pains associated with homemade ice cream is the need for pre-freezing the ice cream bowl every time you want to make ice cream. Luckily thanks to the Cuisinart Professional Ice Cream Maker and its instant freeze bowl there is no need to pre-freeze in advance so you can prepare batch after batch of your favorite frozen desserts, each ready in as little as 40 minutes.
Cuisinart is well known for its performance-focused, high-quality appliances. Design to make professional-quality ice cream and gelato, the Cuisinart Professional Ice Cream Maker is a high-quality choice for ice cream lovers.
Unlike other machines, there is no need to pre-freeze the bowl overnight, as the built-in compressor generates its own cooling power for instant freeze. Thanks to high-quality design, this model is easy to put together. All component parts slot into place and, overall, assembly is very intuitive.
The Cuisinart Professional Ice Cream Maker comes with a 1.5 L bowl and two paddles. One is specifically for ice cream, designed to whip as much air into the mix as possible while it churns. The other is for gelato, designed to introduce less air for a denser dessert with a more intense flavor. The bowl is removable, making washing up much easier. It also can be bought as an affordable spare part.
Because its self-freezing, this means that this unit is larger than its pre-freeze contemporaries. But its slim and deep design makes it small enough to fit on your counter under the cabinets with dimensions of 30 cm (9.3 inches) high by 24 cm (12 inches) wide by 42 cm (16.7 inches) deep.
Lately, we have been using this unit a lot, and it couldn't be simpler. There aren’t many controls to work out, just a power, timer, and nifty stop/start button, which allows you to stop the churning process to taste or inspect your ice cream without having to reset anything. Thanks to its simple design you can make delicious ice cream with just a press of a few buttons.
The timer runs for up to 60 minutes, though it’s unlikely that anything you make will take that long. Probably the only situation when the 60 minutes are needed is when you are in a hurry and don't have time to refrigerate your ice cream base. You can do this without any problems.
In contrast with other models on the market, in the Cuisinart Professional Ice Cream Maker, there’s no noise or signal to let you know when to add in extra ingredients, but the manual recommends doing this in the last five minutes of the mixing process.
