Question about Cuisinart ICE-20 Automatic Frozen Yogurt 1.5 Quart Ice Cream Maker

1 Answer

Over freezing ice cream....

I've only used my Cuisinart ICE-20 3 times now (twice for yoghurt and once for ice cream), but I can't seem to get the right consistency after freezing.  I have my freezer set on low, yet the ice cream and frozen yoghurt are rock solid.  When the ice cream defrosts, it has ice crystals - not the desired texture.  
Also, after 25 mins in the machine, there is quite a lot of mixture frozen onto the freezer bowl and it wont come off - what am I doing wrong?!!!
Any help would be most appreciated.
Thanks :-)

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!

How do you use a cuisinart frozen yogurt ice cream & sorbet maker


look on line; lots of manuals and recipes available. I'd say yours is one where you freeze the bowl over not and refrigerate the mix overnight too. You can buy the mix, but much more fun to make you own. I'd be borrowing a book from the library so you can experiment, but generally its make a 4 egg custard + 6 tblspn caster suger + 300 ml cream + flavour eg vanilla. I use powder custard + twice as much sugar to make custard and it works too! have fun

Due to some internal problem this kind of problem occurs, so it is good to get repair and enjoy the ice cream. There is no need to worry about it this kind of problem occurs time to time. By changing few things can get better and you can enjoy the ice cream as usual.

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 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!

Cuisinart ice cream-frozen yougurt maker& sorbet maker CIM 60 series


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.

The ice cream makers have a 3-year warranty - call Cuisinart to get a replacement - you may have to pay for shipping, but that's it.

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.

Mixing Arm Doesn't Turn


As long as it makes the ice cream, it doesn't matter which one turns. If it's not making the ice cream, call Cuisinart, as both the lid and the mixing arm can be replaced.
