The Cuisinart ICE-50BC is finished in brushed stainless steel and allows users to create 1 and ½ quarts of frozen yogurt, ice cream or sorbet. With the 60-minute timer, users really don’t have to do anything. The machine works all on it’s own. The parts are easy to clean, making the machine very convenient to use. Perhaps the most convenient thing is that the machine has a built-in compressor, so there’s no need to freeze anything ahead of time. The paddle, bowl, lid, and spout is removable so the parts can be washed individually. It also features a convenient instruction and recipe book to help users create delicious treats.
One reviewer stated that this is the best ice cream maker he’s ever used, and that the need for alcohol and pre-freezing is non-existent with this machine, making it super-convenient. Another reviewer stated that he could make excellent ice cream with this machine in 40 minutes and that all he had to do was plug it in, dump in the ingredients and leave it alone. The convenience of not having to constantly check on the machine is what makes it so popular and beloved.
Other reviews state that the machine is very easy to clean up with the removable lid, spout, paddle and bowl. The pieces just need to be taken apart and placed into the dishwasher or sink when the ice cream has finished making. Based on the reviews, we feel very comfortable recommending it to those who want to make their own delicious frozen ice cream, sorbets, and yogurt. It’s not likely that anyone who purchases this product is going to be unhappy with the convenience, clean-up, ease-of-use, or any other aspect.
