Do You Need the Cuisinart Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker? — The Kitchen Gadget Test Show

  • Published: 04 October 2018
  • Welcome back to the test kitchen! On today's episode, Esther is testing the Cuisinart soft serve machine. Soft serve is something people typically leave the house for, but if this machine works, soft serve ice cream in pajamas could become a reality.

      That looks terrible! The ice cream is not even ice cream. It’s milk

          This thing is nearly obsolete. LG is going to release the ‘Snow White’ instant soft serve ice cream maker that comes with k cups for a lot of options and flavors such as sherbets frozen yogurts, gelatos, etc,
          Imagine just putting in the ingredients and k cup and instantly you have soft ice cream, no freezing and no waiting any longer than it takes to make a kurieg cup of coffee. Look it up, the Snow White by LG

            Thanks for the review. I'll stick with my White Mountain ice cream maker. As long as I have my ice cream mixture and plenty of ice and rock salt, I've got ice cream.

              Why not just buy ice cream? Can some one please explain

                          This machine is not that kind of fun that is worth the money for making really good soft serve ice cream.

                            i purchased 1 if these a few years back only to never use it (freezer bowl won't freeze right) so my niece wanted it & she ended up with it too after i purchased an ice cream machine with compressor (cost a lil more, but well worth it)

                                    Well thanks to all of you, you have ruined my Christmas for me and my grandchildren! I bought one of these for my grandchildren for Christmas, and I was just looking to see what all I needed to get from the store before I used it, and was going to freeze the bowl and have it ready to churn Christmas morning, tomorrow morning, as this is Christmas Eve. Now you have got me so disappointed that my Christmas is going to be ruined, because someone who is vertically challenged cannot turn it around so that she can see how to dispense it into the cone!

                                          Tip for morons , chill your mix in the freezer before pouring into mixer...
                                          For the technical one, use a thermometer and get the mix just above freezing.....

                                              Perhaps you should freeze it for longer? I dunno, still seems bad.

                                                  But you want something that can keep the proper constitency throughout say a party or a movie get together rather than time it precisely and no longer.

                                                          It's soft serve. It melts fast. McDonalds machine costs in the thousands I'm let's get a soft serve from McDonalds and set it on the counter, too...I usually don't make it out of the drive thru before it's dripping. For the price, I'm impressed you got over 6 cones from one mix.

You said you refrigerated the mixture before using it, it would help if you placed it in the freezer until it's just short of frozen before using
