Question about Cuisinart ICE-50BC 1.5 Quart Ice Cream Maker

1 Answer

Gets only cool not cold

The problem is after one hour of turning the ice cream gets only slightly cool. I had stored the mixture in the refrigerator for 24 hours and I also stored the mixer container in the refrig (not the freezer) for 24 hours. I used the Vanilla Bean Ice Cream mixture from the Cuisinart Recipe Booklet that came with the freezer. The side of the machine does not feel cold.

Re: gets only cool not cold

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
makes 1 generous quart
4 egg yolks
2/3 cup sugar
2 cups half-and-half
1 vanilla bean or 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup whipping cream
In a bowl, beat the egg yolks until blended and mix in sugar. Heat the half and half, stir into the egg yolks, and pour into the top part of a double boiler. Split the vanilla bean and scrape its seeds into the cream and add the bean as well. Place over simmering water and stirring constantly, cook until the mixture is custard-like and coats the spoon. Remove from heat and refrigerate until cold, or several hours. Remove vanilla bean. If using vanilla extract, stir it in at this point. Just before ready to churn; stir in the whipping cream. Freeze according to directions for your ice cream freezer.

Gets only cool not cold

the thermostat is supposedly right below the BLACK switch knob of the unit.

it should look like this if you open the unit up.

but before you open the casing, try to refer to CuisinArt's warranty terms even if you lost the proof of purchase for the unit.

good luck

Do you have any recipe for milk free ice cream? For lactose intollerant diet?? Perhaps Almond Milk or Soy Milk.

Here are some of the useful steps to make a milk free ice cream.
1.) Microwave the chocolate and butter-substitute for thirty seconds in a microwave-safe bowl.
2.) Add a dash of salt, and a splash of vanilla extract to taste.
3.) Put a scoop of marshmallow fluff into the bowl and stir it in thoroughly.
4.) Remove the spoon, lick it clean, and wait up to 5 minutes for your mixture to become room temperature.
5.) Place it in the freezer for 50 minutes, remove, and if it is still not frozen well, then stir it thoroughly and place it back in the freezer for another 20 minutes.

I need an ice cream can for a 2 quart ice cream maker #8401

Making homemade ice cream for your family can be lots of fun during the hot summer months.
  1. After preparing and refrigerating your ice cream recipe, pour chilled ice cream into cooled ice cream can.
  2. Fill ice cream can 3/4 full; mixture will expand.
  3. Insert the dasher making sure it is positioned correctly into the can indentation.
  4. Place cover on ice cream can.

Lumina (Aldi) ice cream maker instructions

Before using the first time:
1. Remove all of the packaging.
2. Wash the parts. (the paddle & the bowl only)
3. Eight hours in advance, place the inner bowl into a freezer.
4. Prepare the ice cream or sorbet mix (see recipe ideas)
Allow the mix to cool in the refrigerator.
FYI, I freeze the inner bowl overnight instead of the eight hours as stated in the manual.
Good luck!

Ice cream maker doesn't chill

The machine must be upright for 24 hours before using it.

If it was stored on its side or upside down you MUST wait 24 hours with the machine in the correct upright position. The 'person' who delivered mine made sure he tumbled it over and over again scanning shipping labels even though it said everywhere fragile and this side up.

If the machine does not work at cooling after 24 hours there is a problem and it should be returned.

Do not expect rock hard ice cream, but thick scoop-able medium firm soft-serve is easy to get as a result. A few hours in the freezer will harden it more.

What's the recipe for coffee ice cream

  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
  • 2 tablespoons espresso liqueur
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream

    Put the condensed milk in a bowl and stir in the espresso powder and liqueur. In a separate bowl, whisk the cream until it reaches soft peaks. Fold the cream into the condensed milk mixture, then pour this gorgeous caffe latte-colored airy mixture into an airtight container and freeze for 6 hours or overnight. Serve straight from the freezer.

    This is the best procedure to make a coffee ice cream.
