Not only does it make everyone’s favorites, but with three built-in condiment dispensers, it makes them extra delicious! Just a pull of a tab sends sprinkles, chips and other mix-ins down the chute to mix right into frozen desserts as cones or bowls are filled.

Here are some great features of the Cuisinart Ice-45:
  • Always easy: Effortless ice cream making--just pick a favorite recipe, turn the dial, and add ingredients.
  • The perfect mix: Ice cream maker mixes sprinkles, chips, and more into frozen desserts as they’re dispensed.
  • Double-insulated freezer bowls holds temperature for fast results
  • Fast results: Enjoy 1-1/2 quarts of gourmet quality soft-serve frozen desserts.
  • Dispense or scoop: When ice cream stops flowing through, lift the lid and scoop out the rest.
  • Cone holder holds a stack of pointed or flat bottom cones
  • Removable parts for easy cleaning
  • No chemicals, salt, or ice required
  • Includes instruction book and recipe book
  • 1-1/2-quart capacity
  • Limited 3-year warranty

I learned that while the user manual suggests freezing the bowl for 15 hours, 24 may be necessary (toward the back of the freezer). Better yet, if you are able to store the bowl in the freezer it makes it much easier to use the machine spontaneously.

Here’s what one of the owners had to say about the Cuisinart Ice-45:
Overall, I've really enjoyed this gadget - but I did some research first and made certain I understood what I was buying. This is NOT like the soft serve dispensers in restaurants - but it's very nice for a treat on a summer afternoon. (Dwain M)
