    Should I get an ice cream maker?




    We had a potluck at work today and someone brought homemade Earl Gray Tea flavored ice cream sprinkled with chocolate hazelnuts. It was so delicious and creamy.

    Do any of you guys own an ice cream maker and is it something you enjoy using, OR, is it something you found was fun to use once or twice and is now collecting dust somewhere?

    Your answers will help me determine whether or not i will buy a machine this weekend or not!

    Re: Should I get an ice cream maker?




    I have the cuisinart one, works great and recommend it for anyone wanting one. BUT I dont actually make ice cream at all. Not that it is too much work or anything cuz it really is easy. I just know if it is in the house I will eat it so i avoid like the plague. I made a bailys ice cream once, yum! If you eat ice cream often enough then I say get it. It really is yummy. Should get it out now and make some. haha My problem is tho that our freezer is full of stuff. Those canisters take up some space and I took them out of the freezer some time back to make room and they never got back in. You do have to have them in there for a long while before using them, like 2 days or so I would say. It comes with 2 canisters so you can always have one cold if you have room. I personally need a big freezer for meats and stuff really.

    Yes get one! I got one at good will for 3 bucks. Never intended to buy one but I figured for 3 bucks why not? We love it we make homemade lemon ice in it which is amazing we also make a lot of other fruit concoctions.Never made actual ice-cream in it though .....go figure

    Okay, thanks for all the great input! I like the Cuisinart brand--it got great reviews online. Might be a bit pricey for me tho but i can "subsidize" with a gift card I have.

    Lisa, they now have the machines where you do not need to use rock salt anymore!
    @dozersmama you got a SWEET deal on that one!
