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

1 Answer

Slimy residue when eating product

I've just made the basic vanilla ice cream recipe in my brand new Cuisinart Ice 20. After about 25 minutes of mixing, the consistency was fine and looked smooth. However, when one eats the ice cream, a slimy white residue is left in one's mouth. It's very unappealing and glue-like. What can I do to prevent this problem? Is the problem with the ice cream maker or the heavy cream ingredients I'm using?

Most likely the type of heavy whipping cream. I have successfully used TG Lee and Publix brand Heavy Whipping Cream, and have not experienced the problem you are reporting. It was downright delicious.

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

Don't have instruction manual. How do you make basic ice cream in this machine? How long do you freeze container in freezer? How long do you plug in?

Freeze the the container for at least 48 hours before using it. You can use whatever ice cream recipe you like in the unit. Basic vanilla - 3 cups whole milk - 1 teas vanilla - 1 cup heavy whipping cream - 1/2 cup sugar. Mix everything together in a pitcher and make sure the sugar is disolved. Taste it and make sure it is sweet enough for you. If not, add more sugar. If you use 2% your ice cream will not be very thick and it will take longer to set up and freeze.

Put the container in the ice cream maker. Turn it on (insert the plastic mixing blade if it has one) Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker if it has an open space to add mix through the top. If not - put the mix in before turning it on (my model is a little different than yours - sorry!)

when the ice cream is thick enough for you - then its done. It usually takes approx 15 - 20 for soft serve/milk shake consistency - and 30 - 45 for stiffer - ice cream. The ice cream does not get hard - at best its soft serve quality. There are other recipes that you cook which I hear will set up harder but I have not tried any yet.

You can make chocolate by using the same recipe above - and adding any liquid chocolate - or fudge. If you add strawberry preserves - it makes strawberry ice cream. sugar free drink mix added to the vanilla recipe above makes great flavors (crystal light drink power mixes ect)

Good luck!

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

A friend gave me this ice cream maker and I was so excited but never made it before. All recipes say put in ice-cream maker and follow manufactures directions. I don't know what that is. I gather you...

There are some ready made mixes, but its just as easy to make your own. Lots and lots of recipes online. Most call for custard made with 4 eggs + 300 ml milk+ 6 tablesp castor sugar, 300 ml cream and plus flavour ( chocolate, vanilla, fruit etc.) added at the time, then cooled.Except for real vanilla, i use custard powder to make custard instead with twice as much sugar and it works well. I also tried 1 can apricot nectar + 300ml cream; yummy.Look for a few simple receipes, but if your bowl comes out it needs to be frozen for at least 24 hours and the mixture needs to be cold so it goes it in the fridge overnight too. Then you set it up and start mixing till you get a lot of air in the mix, it looks like a soft serve and has increased in volume, about 35- 40 minutes. you need the extra sweetness as being frozen, the sweetness is lost. Have fun !

I have a brand new cuisinart frozen yogurt and ice cream machine but it didn't come with the owners manual and recipes so i don't know how to make anything with it and i was wondering if one could be sent...

The Cuisinart site has the manual and recipes:
That said it's weird that you didn't get any manual. Could it be that your product is a return? I would ask the store you bought it from.
Have fun cooking!

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.
