Cuisinart ICE 50BC Supreme Review


When the subject of a home-made-icecream-maker comes up, pretty much everyone recognizes the name Cuisinart, as they make all sorts of kitchen appliances.

Vanilla Chocolate & Strawberry Balls of Ice Cream with Raspberries & Strawberries

They are a well known household name with a reputation to uphold. Cuisinart has several ice cream makers on the market and today we will look at their ICE 50BC Supreme Cream Maker model.

To start off with this is a higher priced homemade-icecream-maker which has the advantage of not needing to freeze the ice cream bowl ahead of time.

This can be a huge time saver, especially if you don’t have the opportunity to store your bowl in the freezer on a permanent basis.

It is definitely more of a commercial style ice cream maker. So if you make tons of ice cream and frozen desserts it may be a model to seriously consider.

Customer Comments About This

Below are some of the comments from people who have actually purchased the Cuisinart ICE 50BC Supreme Cream Maker. As you can see we have added both good comments along with a couple of concerns that some customers had.

  • The only home-made-icecream-maker I used prior to this was an Italian gelato machine. That device required the work bowl to be frozen for several hours prior to making ice cream AND the use of alcohol to assist in the transfer of cold from the compressor to the work bowl. This machine from Cuisinart eliminates the need for both. This is accomplished by finely manufacturing the components so that the work bowl fits VERY snugly in to the device. The result is an ice cream maker which is much easier to setup with less mess.
  • The ICE-50 comes advertised as a stainless steel machine. The sides are brushed stainless steel which is very nice, but the top, the arm and the bottom are a silvery grey plastic.
  • On the top there is a turn-dial timer which works for up to 60 minutes. I would have preferred some kind of digital timer. I don't think it would have added too much to the overall cost but the turn dial works well so I'm fine with it.
  • There is a negative about the motor I should mention and that is that it's LOUD. You definitely do not want to be in the same room or watch television when this thing is running.

The loud factor seems to be prevalent with most brands of ice cream makers unfortunately. On the good side though your home-made-icecream-maker will only be running for one hour, so if possible make plans not to be in the kitchen while it is running.

Where to Buy the
Cuisinart ICE 50BC

Currently the best place we have found this ice cream machine to be selling at the lowest price is on Amazon. As we mentioned this is a higher priced model than some other machines and it does qualify for free shipping, which is good to note.
