SOURCE: ice cream is soupy & when I freeze it it becomes icy

Freeze the bowl for at least 24 hrs, rather than the 12 hrs the manual suggests - it will make all the difference in the world. For really thick ice cream, freeze the bowl for a day, and then put the ingredients in the freezer until the outer rim becomes frozen. Very delicious!

SOURCE: ice cream not firm

The freezer bowl is sensitive. Go ahead and thaw it out until you can hear the liquid swishing around inside - usually letting warm water run through it is sufficient for thawing. Then refreeze the bowl, making sure the bowl is sitting flat/level in the freezer. When making ice cream with this unit, letting the freezer bowl sit out for even 20 minutes can unfreeze it enough so that you only get sludge. Do not remove the freezer bowl until you are immediately ready to pour the ingedients into the bowl. You can even pre-chill your ingredients by letting the ingredients sit in the freezer for about 15 minutes - although I have found that this usually has the opposite effect of what you have just experienced --> the ingredients usually freeze up so fast that the mixing paddle is no longer able to turn.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Over freezing ice cream....

Any water is going to solidify the mixture. Make sure you use heavy whipping cream, and not half-and-half or some other substitute.

As far as the mixture freezing onto freezer bowl - use the supplied spatula to try to scrape it off, but I generally have to count that portion out as lost. Running warm water over it will quickly wash it off.

Happy mixing!

I have the same problem, but it seems that it has gotten worse with time. When I first bought this product 6 years ago it worked fine, now the bowl won't freeze entirely and it has been in the freezer for two days (at the lowest freezer setting). I am wondering if the freezer bowl has a life span.

SOURCE: Cuisinart Ice Cream Freezer Bowls Not Freezing Anymore

I would take the freezer bowls out of the freezer, run them both under the sink to thaw both bowls out, dry both bowls thoroughly, and then set them both on the counter so that the liquid settles toward the bottom of the freezer bowls. After 1 hour, place the bowls FLAT back into the freezer - don't forget to wrap them in a plastic grocery bag or some other sort of plastic bag. Try to make ice cream again after 24 hours or more of freezing. Let me know if this works, so I can pass the good news along to others.

Ice Cream not freezing


Yes, they stop working sometimes. Same thing happened to me.
The Cuisinart ICE-20 bowl is precisely the same, and works with the Krups 337. You can buy the Cuisinart bowl separately. It costs nearly as much as the whole machine, but what can you do.

Ice cream has ice crystals in it


Ice crystals are more prevalent in homemade ice cream because it takes longer to freeze the mix. When you can flash-freeze the ice cream to very low temperatures very quickly, there is less time for the molecules to melt and refreeze, which causes crystal formation.

Here are some of the useful tips:
1.) When the ice cream is done, transfer to the coldest part of the freezer as quickly as possible
2.) Pre-freeze the ice cream bowl before using, and pre-freeze the storage container before putting the ice cream in it and into the freezer
3.) Make sure the mix is very cold before using the machine. Maybe put the mix in the freezer for 15 minutes before starting the machine, so that it will finish faster

Hopefully this information helps a lot.
