Pros

  • Add Mix-ins: Up to 3 Different Choices
  • The Cuisinart ICE 45 makes adding mix-ins to your ice cream easy. Using a simple-pull tab system, this Cuisinart soft serve ice cream maker dispenses mix-ins so that you can conveniently add your favorite mix-ins right into your ice cream as it is dispensed!

    • Add a variety of toppings to the same serving of ice cream.
    • Since mix-ins are added as the ice cream is dispensed, everyone can enjoy the same batch of ice cream with only the mix-ins that they want added.

  • Ease of Dispensing: Dispensing System
  • This is the only Cuisinart ice cream maker to have it's own dispensing system. By simply pulling down on a handle, you can serve ice cream easily into waiting bowls and cones.

    • The dispensing system makes serving quick, efficient, and simple.
    • The dispensing system adds a professional swirl to served ice cream treats, making it an elegant dessert.

  • Ease of Use: Automatic, Electric
  • Electric ice cream makers with freezer bowls are easy to use. Simply place the pre-frozen freezer bowl into the machine, pour in the ingredients, and turn your maker on. The Cuisinart Ice 45 will then take over, freezing your homemade ice cream to perfection!

    • Don't have to hand crank the machine - simply come back when it's done and enjoy your ice cream!
    • No rock salt and ice to prepare or dispose.
    • Non-skid feet prevent this machine from sliding around.

  • Quality Ice Cream: Double Insulated Freezer Bowl
  • With its double insulate freezer bowl, the Cuisinart ICE 45 is able to freeze your homemade ice cream well.

    • Cold temperature when freezing ice cream is important for creating a soft and creamy texture.

  • Ease of Cleaning: Removable parts
  • With removable parts, this ice cream maker is easy to clean after your homemade ice cream is made and served.
    • You do not have to try to clean the individual parts while they are stuck to each other.
    • Has a removable drip tray that prevents ice cream from dripping on your counter - making our kitchen as well as this machine easy to clean!



Standard

  • Batch Size: 1.5 quarts
  • Most ice cream makers used in homes make a 1 1/2 quart batch of ice cream. With a full batch of homemade ice cream you'll get ten 1/2 cup servings of ice cream from the Cuisinart Ice 45...but don't be surprise if you devour more than a half cup of ice cream in one sitting!

  • Ice Cream Making Time: Makes ice cream in approximately 20 minutes



Cons

  • One Batch at a Time: Freezer Bowls
  • Ice cream makers with freezer bowls can only make one batch of ice cream at a time, because by the time the first batch of ice cream is done, the freezer bowl is no longer cold enough to make quality ice cream (If a 1 1/2 quart batch isn't enough for you or you want to make multiple flavors at one time, you can solve this problem by getting a second freezer bowl).

    • Freezer Bowl must be refrozen after each batch of ice cream.

  • Freeze bowl Hours in Advance: Freezer Bowls
  • When making ice cream with a machine that freezes the ice cream with a freezer bowl, you must plan ahead and place the freezer bowl in the freezer about 16 hours before you make the ice cream. Since you never know when you'll have a little craving for homemade ice cream, you may as well just store the freezer bowl in the freezer!

    • Store Freezer Bowl in Freezer: takes up freezer space.
    • Don't Store Freezer Bowl in Freezer: must plan ahead and freeze bowl hours before you need it.
