ISO comments about ice cream appliances

I was just curious, would it be better to make ice cream in my ninja blender or to make it in a cuisinart ice creammaker?

I have both of those appliances, and I always grab the one that has "ice cream" in its name when I make ice cream.

well, we don't have "cold stone creamery" near by. I live in AK. and with $5 or more or less for 1/2 quart of ice cream, I think I can easily save on ice cream especially as people in AK eat a lot of ice cream plus, I can make it taste however I want, I can make it healthier, etc.

what kind of ice cream makers do you guys use?

We have the Cuisinart ice cream maker and love it. Sooo easy and makes great ice cream. We liked ours so much, I bought a second one at a thrift store for $2 so we could make two kinds of ice cream at the same time.

I have the Rival 1-quart with the canister you keep in the freezer.

I have the Cuisinart as well and it makes great ice cream if you have a good recipe.

We use a Cuisinart 2 quart machine. Given the cost of heavy cream, it's tough to economize except to the extent you are willing to use egg yolks to offset reduced heavy cream content by making a cooked custard ice cream.

I was just referring to the cost of the ingredients and not the machine. Namely the fat from egg yolks is less expensive than the butter fat from heavy sweet cream.
