Pros

  • Cost
  • Ice cream makers range in price based on the features of the appliance and the quality of the ice cream produced. One of the reasons the Cuisinart ICE 20 is popular is because of the value customers get for their money. It's an inexpensive ice cream maker that does not have all the fancy features - but still makes delicious ice cream easily.

    • Great value for money invested.

  • Ease of Use: Automatic, Electric
  • Automatic ice cream machines with freezer bowls are extremely easy to operate. The removable freezer bowl slips in and out of the machine easily and makes freezing your ice cream a simple task.

    • You don't have to hand crank this appliance, simply let it do all the work!
    • You don't have to prepare or dispose of rock salt and ice in order to freeze your ice cream.

  • Quality Ice Cream: Double Insulated Freezer Bowl
  • The Cuisinart ICE 20 double insulated freezer bowl maintains a cold enough temperature to freeze your homemade ice cream (the only freezing method better is the more costly built-in compressor freezer).

    • Creamy and smooth ice cream results when ingredients are quickly and evenly frozen.

  • Ease of Cleaning: Removable parts
  • The Cuisinart ICE 20 can be quickly and easily disassembled.

    • Clean parts individually not while they are hard to get at still within the machine.



Standard

  • Batch Size: 1.5 quarts
  • A 1.5 quart ice cream maker is the standard size for most ice cream makers designed for home use (makes ten 1/2 cup servings of ice cream).

  • Lid: Transparent lid
  • A transparent lid helps you to see your ice cream while it is mixing in the machine.

    • Determine whether you ice cream is done or needs to be mixed longer by looking through the see-through lid.

  • Adding Mix-Ins: Spout for adding mix-ins
  • Most ice cream makers have a built-in way that you can add mix-ins while the ice cream maker is churning.

    • When mix-ins are added when the ice cream has thickened and is mixing, it results in a better ice cream (texture and distribution of mix-ins).

  • Ice Cream Making Time: Makes ice cream in approximately 25 minutes



Cons

  • One Batch at a Time: Freezer Bowls
  • A freezer bowl can only produce one batch of ice cream at a time. The freezer bowl must be washed and refrozen before it will again be cold enough to produce another batch of ice cream.

    • The freezer bowl must be frozen again before it can be used again.

  • Freeze bowl Hours in Advance Freezer Bowls
  • You must plan ahead if you don't store your freezer bowl in your freezer.

    • If you store your freezer bowl in the freezer, you'll use up freezer space.
    • If you don't store your freezer bowl in the freezer, you must remember to freeze the bowl before you need it.
