Ultimate Holiday Wishlist – Cuisinart Mix It In Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. Who doesn’t at least like ice cream let alone love it? Better yet who wouldn’t love making their own ice cream or frozen yogurt with the Cuisinart Mix It In Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker.

When our Cuisinart Mix It In Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker arrived for analysis I was super excited to break it open (not literally) and give it a try. I feel that I am a pretty handy and technical guy but man did this machine give me a little trouble during the assembly process. It took me about 15-20 minutes to assemble the machine.

Once assembled I figured all I needed to do was add the ingredients and viola ice cream. Nope. You actually have to freeze the freezer bowl (that is the actual name, DUH) for at least 12 hours but 24 would be better. I figured that was just a recommendation not a rule so I froze the freezer bowl for 6 hours prior to its maiden voyage. Bad idea because the freezer bowl needs a full 12-24 hours to freeze before use and because I didn’t follow directions my ice cream would not set up or freeze and it was just liquid. So a word to the wise, freeze the freezer bowl for 12-24 hours like stated. On my second attempt I froze the freezer bowl a full 24 hours and the ice cream came out like a champ. It was awesome and let me tell you it was good.

So lets get down to the nuts and bolts of the Cuisinart Mix It In Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker:

  • Adds favorite mix-ins into soft serve ice cream as it’s dispensed!
  • Pull out tabs to add one, two or all three types of mix-ins
  • Pull down handle to dispense soft serve ice cream directly into cones or bowls
  • Makes 11⁄2 quarts of frozen dessert in as little as 20 minutes
  • Fully automatic – just add favorite fresh ingredients and turn the dial
  • Cone holder holds a stack of pointed or flat bottom cones
  • Double-insulated freezer bowl holds temperature for fast results
  • No chemicals, salt or ice required
  • Removable parts for easy cleaning

If you follow the directions like you should which I failed to do the first time you are going to get a tasty little morsel called ice cream that the whole family will enjoy.
