Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The cord fits perfectly well, not too bulky and noisy.
The Cuisinart ICE-30BC Pure Indulgence ice cream maker creates great-tasting ice cream.
The simple one-switch system couldn’t be easier to operate – place the frozen bowl on the base, attach the dasher, pour in the chilled ingredients, and put the lid on. Then sit back for 25 minutes while your own artisan ice cream comes to life. The result is smooth, luxurious frozen delight. Another convenient feature is the cord storage space built into the base – you can coil up the cord for storage and keep your countertops tidy and safe.
- Foodal
It has a double-insulated freezer bowl that will hold yogurt or ice cream for two. It has a brushed metal housing that you will find easy to clean and maintain for years to come. The heavy-duty motor is the heart of this ice cream maker. It can work for minutes non-stop to make your favorite ice cream flavors. You can easily add ingredients to the mix with its large opening or spout.
Excels at making ice cream and sorbet, easy to assemble and use. Built-in cord storage.
Holds up to 2 quarts of ice cream - a significantly greater amount compared to other models
With just one on/off switch it's easy to master! And with no complicated electronics there's nothing that can go wrong. You might need to replace the removable bowl eventually. But they're cheap and widely available.

What reviewers didn't like

You need to watch the machine, as it tends to overflow.
It doesn’t actually touch the edges of the bowl, but leaves frozen mix on the sides, which inhibits the mixture from freezing. So scraping while processing is needed.
- Foodal
Can make only a small amount of ice cream.
Canister requires pre-freezing
Extremely loud, the mixing arm does not scrape the sides of the bowl
Bowl takes up lots of room in freezer
