If you have an ice cream maker, it's very likely this model from Cuisinart. It's inexpensive, and easy to use. But if you don't have one, then this might be the moment: Cuisinart just released a whole array of colors!
You can read a review of an earlier (but basically identical) Cuisinart ice cream maker here
. These are simple machines: You freeze the bowl overnight, and the liquid or gel inside the wall of the bowl helps the ice cream in the bowl to freeze hard while it's churned. It accomplishes a basic function very well, and as long as the bowl is frozen and the ice cream base is chilled, it works perfectly every time.
I used one of these makers before I upgraded to this more expensive model with a built-in compressor. For every-day ice cream making, the classic model works great, and these colorful options make it even more attractive!
The ice cream maker now comes in (I quote): "Buttercup, Crush, Parsley, Pomegranate, and Tangerine," and each comes with a matching ice cream scoop.
