With summer arriving, I thought now would be the time to buy a ice cream machine. And, after researching various ice cream makers, I was all ready to buy the Cuisinart ICE-20. Several different sources recommended it, including a article on this very own site. And, it seemed to be the best bang for the buck at $50( I don't understand why every store lists the retail price at around $90, when I always see it being sold for $50).
In one of the reviews, it said it was the ice cream machine if you wanted to make philly style ice cream. But, it also said that the Cuisinart ICE-20 had problems when making french style ice cream.
Has anybody else run into that problem?
One of the reasons to make ice cream at home is to be able to make flavors that you can't find at the supermarket. But, most of the recipes for more exotic flavors tend to be french style ice cream because you need to steep the ingredients in the heated cream mixture.
Are there any ice cream makers that don't cost several hundred dollars that can successfully make great tasting french style ice cream? I'm also looking for something that can make great tasting gelato as well?
