Summer’s coming, and there’s going to be many people making ice cream for dessert for their cookouts.  Instead of hauling out the old-fashioned electric – or hand-cranked – maker that requires rock salt and a lot of ice, why not use the Cuisinart ICE-45 Mix It In Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker?  The double-insulated freezer bowl holds temperature for fast results without salt or ice, and it makes 1.5 quarts of ice cream in just 20 minutes.  It’s fully automatic; just add the ingredients and forget it until it’s time for dessert.  The machine has three hoppers for sprinkles, nuts, and other additives that can be mixed in as you dispense your soft-serve ice cream.  There’s even a rack to hold flat-bottomed or pointed cones.  The ICE-45 is available from Cuisinart for $99.95 in white or pink.

  2. I have never seen sprinkles that uniformly and perfectly distributed before. It looks like somebody placed each sprinkle individually with tweezers.

    I should get this and place it on my counter with my 5x milkshake maker. The kids will love it.

  3. This device has been available since 2006. It’s on Amazon for $80 with 344 reviews. Is this a paid advertisement for Cuisinart?

  4. I agree and stand corrected. I generally look to the your site for new and cool items not old stuff. Was surprised to see something quite that old. Surprised Cuisinart hasn’t come out with a second gen version.
