place the mix into the can with the paddle inside. Place the can into the bucket. Attach the motor or crank as appropriate.
Crush some ice (aboout 5 pounds) and pack about 2 inches around the base of the can with the can in the bucket. cover this ice with rock salt. Put two more inches of crushed ice on top - spread more rock salt (the smaller the ice, the smoother the mix). Continue this process until you are at the top. Make sure the drain is clear, start cranking (or motoring. When the motor stops, unplug it. Cover all with a heavy towel for about 30 minutges (if you can stand it) If for some reason the motor doesn't stop - you didnt put in enough salt. Expect to use about 1/2 of a 5 pound bag.
Remove the towel - the motor - the top - the paddle. Give the paddle to the kids with a couple spoons. Dig in for the adults.
I sometimes add a quart of water but you dont have to.
The ice makes the water cold - the water provides the freezing power, the salt lowers the freezing point of the water - the extra water might speed the process a little bit ... maybe not
Enjoy your delicious home made ice cream.
(BTW - the paddle does not move ... the can spins around the can causing mixing.
sometimes the brushes take a set when unused.. Unplug the motor. Without using rnough pressure yo break anything, try turning the motor by hand using the paddle. You will be trying to turn the motor through ithe gesrs so use slow steady moderate pressure. This does work. as long as you watch what you are doing wiyh yhe force you apply. Good Luck. and enjoy the ice cream
The ice cream mix has to be xconstantly stir in a nrine solution, That's why they have motorized ice cream makers that rotate the can surrounded by ice and salt.(brine) while a paddle inside stirs it. Good luck and enjoy.
The only thing I can really suggest is to make sure the easy-lock button is fitted into the right place on the lid, and to make sure that the ice cream mixture is not too thick. But, if the turning paddle is locked into place properly, and the mixture is still in liquid form, then there is a problem with one of several parts - could be the metal sliding switch or even a motorized part. These parts cannot be replaced. It is worth a shot to replace the mixing paddle - the unit has a 3-year warranty, so I would Call Cuisinart to get the part instead of ordering it online - they may or may not give it to you for free. If the new mixing paddle still won't spin, get the unit replaced either thorugh the store (depending on the store -each has a different policy) or get it replaced directly through Cuisinart. This model is actually pretty solid, so a second one shouldn't give you any problems.
I don't have a flatbed scanner to scan it, but here are the operating instructions (at least for the 5201).
1. Place canister in freezer for 8 hours (must be frozen solid-so that you can't hear liquid in canister sloshing around)
2. Prepare your ingredients ahead, and chill them for best results.
3. Take canister out of freezer and place on motor base. Use canister immediately after removing from freezer, as it will begin to thaw once placed at room temp.
4. Place the paddle inside container. Be sure the tould side of the paddle faces up.
5. Lock the lid (the clear plastic piece that fits over the container)onto motor base. The tabs on the bottom of the lid should line up with the indentations in the motor base. This ensures that the lid is locked in place. When fitting the lid onto the base, the stir paddle should "fit" into the lid.
6. Turn the On/Off dial to the right (on position).IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU TURN THE UNIT ON BEFORE POURING IN THE MIXTURE. THE CANISTER ROTATES WHILE THE STIR PADDLE REMAINS STATIONARY.
7. Slowly pour the mixture in the top opening of the lid. It is at this time that you place the top on the clear-vue lid and leave the machine on for about 5-30 minutes (time varies, depending on the coldness of ingredients and canister, and desired consitency) If making ice cream, your result should be a soft, custard-like ice cream
8. When the frozen dessert is ready, make sure the unit is off. Remove the lid and the mixture from the bowl with a plastic spoon or scoop. NEVER USE METAL INSTRUMENTS IN THE CANISTER.
9. Ice cream will be custard-like. If you prefer hard ice cream, place in freezer in air tight container and allow to set until it reaches your desired hardness. Don't put the ice cream in the canister in your freezer for more than 30 minutes, as the ice cream will freeze solid to the container and possibly damage it.
Hope this helps... If you need something else, let me know. I will try to check back soon.
you are letting the ice cream get to frozen, this should be a soft gelato ice cream, after 20 minutes turn off the top motor a leave on with the freezer unit still working or take out mixture put in tubs and put in freezer, the lid is designed to come off to stop the machine from breaking.
