For the creamiest texture, the brand recommends chilling the mixing bowl overnight. (Patience is your friend here! If you remove the bowl too early, you may end up with a soupy mess.) Then all you have to do is add in your ice cream mixture and turn the dial to start the process. You'll get to enjoy your frozen treat in just 25 minutes, and shoppers say it'll "rival the big chains out there in soft serve land."

The ice cream maker has a hole at the top of the machine that lets you add in fruit and nuts as your mixture churns, but there are also slots designed specifically for mixing in toppings like chocolate chips and sprinkles as you swirl, which shoppers especially love. To add one (or more!) in, just pull out the slot's corresponding tab and then pull the machine's dispense lever. 

Multiple reviewers agree the results taste "way better than any store bought ice cream." Writes one Amazon shopper, "This ice cream maker is all it said it is and more! It makes the perfect soft serve ice cream! My grandkids love to come over to make ice cream, and the sprinkle dispenser is awesome. They love to add the different sprinkles to their ice cream!"

"Bought last year for my husband who eats a pint of chocolate ice cream each night!" writes another. "Now he makes his own variations of chocolate and it's always fresh, no freezer burn or freezer taste. Never risk buying one that's melted and then refrozen, always perfect!"Get homemade ice cream in just 25 minutes with the Cuisinart soft serve ice cream maker while it's on sale for just $100.
