The Joys of an Ice Cream Maker

One of the things we picked up this holiday season was a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker, and I'm an immediate fan. My childhood memories of ice cream makers were the old manual hand-cranked kind; and while they're fond memories, it took FOREVER to make ice cream. And it was a lot of work, and messy as it was turning a crank, with ice and salt everywhere. I suppose that meant you earned the calories that would be in any result, but not something that you could really do with any regularity.

But this machine is astonishingly fast -- it's quick enough that you can start the machine running after dinner, and it'll be ready in a half hour or so -- just long enough so you've digested your main meal, and are ready for a dessert. And it is portable enough that you can bring it to a party, and it's not terribly expensive -- especially when you consider the price of your higher-quality ice cream.
