- At least that’s what I thought until she let me know that she wanted to make icecream and that since we had such a brilliant offer on the Cuisinart Icecream maker at (only) £199 she’d really like a proper icecream maker with a fridge built in like this one. "Why can’t you use the icecream bowl we got for the KitchenAid" I asked. “Never in the freezer at the right time” was the reply.” Why not keep it in the freezer" I said. “I rarely plan that much in advance" was the reply. And it’s true. If there is anyone on this planet who can throw a meal together at the last minute, which is always tasty and often a great deal better than that, then it’s Babette.
Then I began to see some light at the end of tunnel, because I do love icecream! And the more she talked about the recipes she’d been reading about, and drooling over, the more I warmed to the idea. Emma (Em), in fact, did a demo in the Reigate shop last Saturday to put the machine through its paces and it, apparently, was exceedingly well received. I say apparently because, knowing this was happening, I deliberately went into work on Saturday morning, assuming that at some point either Em or Jacky would bring me a taster . Not sure how they both forgot me, but forgot me they did and whenever I came down to refill my coffee cup it was never quite ready!
No Cool Down Period
Ah well… here’s the salesy bit. Surprisingly (to me…you’ll see why in a second) she had it running pretty well all day, which for a domestic machine I thought was impressive. I say that because we used to sell another well-known brand’s version and after two lots of icecream we always had to let it cool down for quite a while before continuing. With the Cuisinart that isn’t the case.
Also, there’s no mucking around with alcohol to transmit the cold between the machine and the icecream tub. It's aluminium (anodised) which is a great conductor of heat / cold and works a treat. Also, the motor drive is from below which makes it much easier to see what’s going on and to taste it regularly whilst its churning…very important that! Apparently the icecream also tasted amazing!
This Saturday it's Banstead’s turn to use the demo machine and Babette and Jeanne will be there slaving over a cold Cuisinart Icecream maker offering you a chance to taste some delicious icecream and perchance to spend far more than you ever dreamt of investing in a machine to make one the world’s greatest treats. If it’s not too late and I haven’t already gone a bit over the top, I think I’ll quit now whilst I’m still ahead and say that….
