Lid, mixing paddles, mixing bowl, and base

Features and Benefits

Transparent Lid

Add recipe ingredients to the mixing bowl with the easily removable see-through lid and then watch the mixing process in action.

Mix-in Opening

Use to add your favorite toppings and mix-ins, like chocolate chips or nuts, without interrupting the freezing cycle.

Mixing Paddles

Two unique paddles mix and aerate the ingredients in the mixing bowl to create your frozen dessert. The gelato and sorbet paddle perfectly incorporates air in the ingredients and creates richly textured results with intense flavor. Use the ice cream paddle to perfectly churn for smooth, creamy results.

Mixing Bowl with Lift-Out Handle

Anondized aluminum mixing bowl. No need to pre-chill or freeze the bowl prior to use.

Touchpad Control Panel with LCD Readout

When the unit is on, the power button is illuminated by a red LED light. The countdown timer can be set from 10 minutes to 60 minutes. The Start/Stop button can be pressed at any point in the Mixing/Cooling cycle to pause the timer and mixing. The same button can be pressed to continue mixing.

Making Frozen Desserts

  1. Use Cuisinart recipes included in the Instruction Booklet or use your own recipe, making sure your base does not go over the top dasher on the mixing paddle. Gelato and sorbet bases should be no more than 1 quart and ice cream bases should be no more than 5 cups. The ingredients will increase in volume during the freezing process. For best results, prepare the ingredients in a container from which it is easy to pour.
  2. Place the mixing bowl into the base.
  3. Place the ice cream or gelato/sorbet paddle in the mixing bowl so it rests in the center of the bowl.
  4. Pour ingredients into the mixing bowl.
  5. Press the Power button to turn the unit on and then set the timer per the recipe. The timer will default to 60 minutes.
  6. Press the Start/Stop button to begin the Mixing/Cooling cycle.
  7. Add ingredients such as chips and nuts towards the end of the mixing time once the mixture has begun to thicken.
  8. Once the set time concludes, the 10-minute Keep Cool cycle will keep your ice cream or gelato cool.
  9. When the frozen dessert is ready, transfer to a freezer-safe, airtight container for longer storage in the freezer.

Adding Ingredients

    If you make ice cream frequently, this might be the machine for you., July 13, 2012

    This review is from: Cuisinart ICE-100 Compressor Ice Cream and Gelato Maker (Kitchen)
    My ancient and well-used Cuisinart ice cream maker with the pre-freeze insert died in May, and I had every intention of replacing it with the same machine. When I saw the relatively reasonable price on this built-in compressor model however, I decided to buy it instead. I’m glad I went with this model.

    –Some say it’s noisy, but it’s far quieter than my old Cuisinart ICE-20. We can have a conversation in our smallish kitchen when it’s on without problem.
    –It’s convenient to make two (or more) batches in a row.
    –It produces consistently good ice cream and it’s easy to get all of it out of the container.
    –It comes with two types of paddles. The gelato paddle does seem to make for a smoother, silkier dessert.
    –If you don’t have much freezer space, it’s nice to not have to dedicate a spot to a pre-freeze insert.
    –The stainless finish looks great if that fits your aesthetic. I keep the machine out on the counter top and it fits right in with my other appliances.

    The con:
    –It’s on the large side, so if you don’t have much storage or counter space, keep that in mind.

    P.S. I thought it might be helpful to add a note about recipes. We’ve made around 2 batches of ice cream/frozen yogurt/sorbet a week since May and are enjoying the ease of using this machine. I’ve been using recipes from David Lebovitz’s “The Perfect Scoop” and Jeni Britton Bauer’s “Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home.” Bauer and Lebovitz have very different approaches to ice cream but my family happens to like both styles. Each book is full of winners and you can easily find recipes from both authors online to try before committing to a book purchase. If you’re an ice cream fan like me, you’ll have fun experimenting and seeing how the textures and flavors can vary.

    BIG Improvement over ICE-50BC, March 14, 2012
    B. Frohwein (Texas) –

    This review is from: Cuisinart ICE-100 Compressor Ice Cream and Gelato Maker (Kitchen)
    Cuisinart has taken the ICE-50BC and improved upon it’s design shortcomings. the biggest improvement is moving the drive system from the overhead arm to underneath the bowl. This system now resembles the much more expensive Lello unit but with a removable bowl. This unit also has a newly redesigned Ice Cream Paddle and includes a Gelato Paddle as well. That’s two machines in one. the small door on the top of the lid for adding nuts, candy pieces, etc it easy to open and close although it’s a tad narrow.

    One thing I noticed the first time I ran mine. after about 20 minutes, there was a squeaking sound. after pausing it and making sure the paddle and the bowl were seated properly, it was ok for a few more minutes but started squeaking again. I tracked the squeak down to the plastic stabilizer atop the paddle that fits in to a poly-lined-slot in the center of the lid. I used a tiny bit of butter on a qtip to coat the inside of the poly ring and it hasn’t squeaked since.

    I tried the basic recipe and I tried the vanilla custard recipe in the book. the custard recipe base actually ends up coming out to more than 4 cups. the manual is very clear about not going over 4 cups of liquid in the machine. they mean it. Although I did dump the whole amount in, I should have definitely stuck to exactly 4 cups. It did not run over the top of the bowl, but it nearly did. I would have liked to allow it to run a little longer than 40 minutes as the custard base was not as cold as it should have been before putting it in to the bowl. if I had, it would have run over the top. the refrigeration unit get very cold and quickly. the final ice cream result was not quite as smooth as I’d like. I will mess around with recipes. Another Friend suggested I pre chill the bowl in the unit for 5-10 minutes before adding the base. you can do that in this machine as you can pause the motor while the refrigeration unit is still running. I like that feature. The pausing feature also comes in handy for adding nuts, candy bits, etc a few minutes before you shut the machine off and transfer your creation to a container for a final 2 hour sit in the freezer.

    The final product coming out of this machine resembles softserve ice cream. This is normal for an ice cream maker. if it were much thicker, you’d have to dig the mixing paddle out of the bowl. I’ve seen several reviews on various machines from people thinking ice cream makers will do more than they’re designed to.

    I’d like to note this machine is LOUD.. the compressor is whisper quiet, the motor for the paddle is not. It sounds like a rather loud electric can opener. This bothers people, but it does not bother me.

    I have not tried a gelato recipe or a sorbet recipe yet. I’m looking forward to it. I wanted to get a review up on this ASAP since it’s a brand new machine and prior to finding this model I was considering a Lello but could not justify the price.

    Clean up is easy with soap and water. the bowl is easily removed from the unit. there is a bit of a trick to getting the paddle out of the bowl without slopping ice cream all over the counter but after a few tries I there was a lot less mess on the counter.

    Better than expected, May 11, 2012

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Cuisinart ICE-100 Compressor Ice Cream and Gelato Maker (Kitchen)
    We have been using the Cuisinart Ice-20 for the past 5 years to make small (1.5 quarts) batches of ice cream in a variety of flavors. I was looking for a batch freezer so that I could make multiple batches without having to refreeze the bowl for 24 hours. After looking around at several units, I decided on the Ice-100.

    The unit is much smaller than I had expected, but not quite a easy to store as the Ice-20. A lot of people comment on the noise level of the batch freezers, but I find the Ice-100 to be at a level at or below that of the Ice-20. With just the mixing blade turning instead of the entire bowl like the Ice-20, it seems to have lowered the noise level a little bit. It is no louder than the electric motor on our large (6 quart) traditional ice cream maker (but a lot less mess than dealing with ice and rock salt).

    The removable bowl makes getting the batch of ice cream out and the mess cleaned up a lot easier. I will warn people to follow the directions carefully on the amount of mixture that you put into the machine. I have found that it holds 4 cups of mix easily so that it does not overflow as the ice cream sets. We have also found that the ice cream from the Ice-100 stays a lot softer in the freezer (if you do not eat it all right away) than the ice cream from the Ice-20. This is probably do to the temperature of the unit staying colder, and producing a product that is firmer than what comes from the Ice-20.

    Overall I feel this is a very good unit for anyone that is interested in stepping up to an ice cream maker with a built in compressor at this price point.
