Cuisinart® Ice Cream Maker 2 "Disappointing" Katy Everson 24 July 2012 Despite being loud, this machine does make tasty ice cream, fast. However, the product quality does not match the price tag. The arm kept popping out of the motor, preventing the paddle from turning. I had to weigh it down with a can of beans! The tub handle was flimsy and would often come away from the tub. Many of the recipes included have errors (ingredients are not mentioned in the method, liquid measurements are stated as grams in some recipes and mls in others). We finally returned it when the paddle snapped - and this was only after 5 or 6 uses. A note from the team Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry that you've had such a disappointment with the ice cream maker.If you return it to any of our stores, colleagues there will be glad to help.
