You've already made it clear that you would NEVER spend the price I paid for my Musso. Did I ask you to go out and buy one? Regarding the Cuisinart ICE-20, I wasn't interested in commenting on THAT model because it has a freezer bucket that I didn't want to mess with. My freezer is tiny and I don't have room for the buckets and I didn't want to hassle with them. I've also read they aren't always temperature efficient either when making a batch of ice cream. All the Cuisinart ice cream makers have the same thin plastic paddle and loud motors. The ICE-20 has the same thin plastic paddle that's prone to breaking as the $300 compressor model. That bothered me about them.
