Cuisinart Classic™ Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker

Cuisinart Classic™ Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker

May 2005 Food for Thought:

The U.S. ice cream market is going strong, with ice cream being a popular
year-round treat – no longer relegated to a single season of consumption.

The frozen dessert market in America is a $20 billion dollar industry with more than 90% of all products in the U.S. consisting of ice cream. Still, recent growth seems to be driven by consumers’ interest in related products such as gelato, sorbet and sherbet. Additional industry data indicates that general consumer trends are taking hold in the ice cream market as well. For example, an increase in ethnic flavors like Dulce de Leche mirrors the growing Hispanic population in the U.S.

What to Look for in an Electric Ice Cream Maker:

Performance:
The Cuisinart Classic™ Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream and Sorbet Maker (model no. ICE-25) is fully automatic and simple to use. Just pour in the ingredients, turn the single-button operating switch to “on” and in only twenty minutes the machine makes 1-½ quarts of ice cream, frozen yogurt or sorbet. The double-insulated freezer bowl delivers fast and even freezing, which yields a more consistent product. The transparent lid has a large spout for adding mix-ins and allows everyone to observe the process while customizing flavors to individual preferences.

Convenience:
The Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream and Sorbet Maker automatically mixes and aerates ingredients in the freezer bowl. There is no manual churning required. In addition, the Cuisinart ice cream maker is “mess-free” because it requires no chemicals, salt or ice. The mixing paddle and freezer bowl can be easily removed for effortless cleanup.

Design:
Cuisinart’s new Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker evokes an air of nostalgia with a design that is reminiscent of classic wooden crank models, without the heavy-duty arm-work required to turn the crank. Other product benefits include non-skid feet for increased stability during use.

Other features:
The Cuisinart ice cream maker comes with an instruction booklet and Cuisinart-tested recipes. It is available in white and red.
