I am not a ice cream person but my husband and little one both love ice cream. My little one craves for ice cream. I waited for one good year before I settled with Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. People were vouching for Kitchenaid. But honestly I am not professional cook! I wanted something compact, for smaller quantity and of course which fits into my budget. Finally we decided to go with this.
There were mixed reviews,more on how the bowl needs to be freezed for at least 12 hours. Yes, if you don't plan ahead you wont have your ice cream instantly! I have made a space for this bowl in my freezer. I just have to make the mixture,leave it in the refrigerator for 2 hours and my ice cream will be ready in 20 minutes.
