Ice Creme Maker suggestions

charlie2003July 28, 2006


I'm interested in buying an ice creme maker, one that can make ice creme, sorbets, and frozen yoghurts.

I saw online that some ice creme makers require ice and rock salt and some are 'automatic'. Is there a difference in the quality or taste of ice creme from either of these with or without the ice and rock salt?

Has anybody tried the Cuisinart® Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Ice Cream and Sorbet Maker? Or are there other brands you'd suggest?

Please advise!

We use the Cuisinart ice cream maker at home and help make ice cream with one of the ice, rock salt and hand crank ice cream makers at camp every summer. With the same recipe, the results are indistinguishable.

I have the kitchen aid mixer attachment and love it. All of them should be able to make all three items. last summer Gourmet magazine reviewed ice cream makers. See if your library has the issue because it was great.
