Food for Thought:
Custom Flavors are on the Rise for Ice Cream

"The average American consumes 23.2 quarts of ice cream a year," according to a food trends article on the business website Entrepreneur.com. The article states that "Consumers are moving away from low-fat ice creams to something more decadent. Cosmic Ice Cream in Raleigh, North Carolina, and Orange & Scarlett's in Atlanta, have found success with flavors like Fat Elvis (peanut butter and banana) and Georgia Pine (feta cheese, honey and toasted pine nuts). Says Lucero Martinez-Obregon, founder of Orange & Scarlett's: People are beginning to get more creative with flavor choices."


What to Look for in an Electric Ice Cream Maker:
Performance:
"Personal preference and a desire to customize flavors are driving consumer interest in making ice cream at home," says Mary Rodgers, Director of Marketing Communications for Cuisinart. "With recent improvements in equipment, consumers can create new combinations tailored to individual preferences. Meanwhile even traditional favorites like chocolate and vanilla can be made in less time and with minimal clean-up."

The Cuisinart Supreme™ Commercial Quality Ice Cream Maker (model no. ICE-50) has a built-in commercial-style compressor that allows consumers to make batch after batch of ice cream--waiting is no longer necessary because the machine does not require pre-freezing. Cuisinart's fully automatic operating system is simple to use; just add ingredients and set the timer. The unit turns off when the cycle is complete. The Cuisinart Commercial Quality Ice Cream Maker has a generous 1.5 quart capacity which is great for families and for entertaining.

The Cuisinart Pure Indulgence™ Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker (model no. ICE-30) is also fully automatic and requires pre-freezing the double insulated freezer bowl; just add the ingredients and turn on the machine. It makes 2 quarts of homemade ice cream in just twenty-five minutes.

Design:
Both ice cream makers feature brushed stainless steel housing embossed with the Cuisinart logo, for an attractive finish that integrates well with today's kitchen design trends.

Other features:
Both machines come with an instruction booklet and Cuisinart-tested recipes. The ICE-30 has a large spout to add consumers' favorite mix-ins. The mixing paddle and freezer bowl are removable for convenient cleanup. The ICE-50 has a transparent lid for adding ingredients and allows users to keep an eye on the process.
