Cuisinart® Ice Cream Maker 5 "Brilliant!" Simon 24 May 2012 Purchased this from the Epsom store (the staff there were fantastic as a replacement was needed due to damage) and couldn't wait to try it out. The recipes included are very tasty, as are our own 'diet' concoctions using quark and fat-free yoghurts. 30 minutes or so provides a soft, creamy dessert, 40+ for something more firm. No, it isn't 'whisper quiet', but then I never expected it to be. Please don't let that put you off. Quite heavy, so be mindful of that, but once in place there really isn't a need to move it about. Easy to clean, too. Very highly recommended.
