Flavor Duo™ Frozen Yogurt–Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker


Food for Thought:

Continued Consumer Demand for Controlling Ingredients in Desserts Created at Home


Vanilla or Chocolate? Strawberry or Butter Pecan? Cuisinart is now helping consumers make one of the toughest decisions of the day: “What flavor ice cream should I have?” The Flavor Duo™ Frozen Yogurt - Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker (model no. ICE-40) is designed with two 1-quart work bowls that can simultaneously produce more than one flavor of ice cream or sorbet at a time. In just 20 minutes, consumers can create either two quarts of one flavor or one quart of two different flavors, with a simple flip of the control switch.


What to Look for When Purchasing an Ice Cream Maker:


Performance and Convenience:

Cuisinart’s Flavor Duo™ saves consumers time in the kitchen by allowing them to prepare twice the amount of ice cream or frozen drinks in half the time. The ice cream maker is fully automatic and requires pre-freezing the double insulated freezer bowls; just turn the machine on and add the ingredients. Now it is easier than ever to serve delicious duos of flavorful ice creams, creamy frozen yogurts, fruity sorbets or slushy frozen drinks.


“The Flavor Duo™ has broad-based appeal, with features geared to all age groups and tastes,” says Mary Rodgers, Director of Marketing Communications for Cuisinart. “The ice cream maker allows consumers to create new flavor combinations tailored to individual preferences or traditional favorites like chocolate and vanilla with minimal clean-up.”

She adds that the Flavor Duo™ has a large spout that allows consumers to add mix-ins such as nuts and chocolate chips toward the end of the mixing process. The ice cream maker has a transparent lid for adding ingredients, so users can also keep an eye on the process.

Other Features:

The Flavor Duo™ comes with an instruction/recipe booklet that shows consumers how to create classic ice cream flavors like vanilla or chocolate chip and frozen drinks such as Raspberry Margaritas. The recipe booklet also contains recipe tips for creating healthier desserts, such as ice cream made with lower fat cream or milk and yogurts made with sugar substitutes.


The Flavor Duo™ features brushed stainless housing embossed with the Cuisinart logo for an attractive finish that integrates well with today’s kitchen design trends. It is also easy to clean, requiring only a wet towel to wipe it down.
