While it’s technically still spring, it’s been feeling like summer lately, and if the hot and humid weather has you dreaming about delicious frozen treats, you’re not alone. There’s nothing better than a refreshing popsicle, frozen drink, or — of course — a big scoop of ice cream on a hot summer day. The only thing better than chasing down the ice cream truck or bringing home a pint or two of Ben & Jerry’s from the supermarket? Making your own ice cream from the comfort of your kitchen. When you make homemade ice cream, you control everything about the final product: the sweetness level, the flavor, the toppings, and the presentation. (Plus, it might even save you a few dollars in the long run.) Best of all, one of the top ice cream makers on the market from Cuisinart, and editor-favorite brand, is on sale at Macy’s right now for 20% off. 

What Is the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker? 

This do-it-all machine from Cuisinart — an editor-loved brand that’s been making high-quality small appliances for years — is a no-brainer pickup this summer. In just 25 minutes, the heavy-duty motor mixes up creamy frozen desserts (or drinks!) for the whole family to enjoy. Simply pop the double-insulated bowl into the freezer overnight (which holds up to 2 quarts) and use the large spout to add your favorite mix-ins and ingredients. Then, press the on button and kick back as the Ice Cream Maker does all the hard work for you. Plus, with the sleek brushed stainless steel construction, it’ll match any and every kitchen aesthetic, and it even comes with a recipe book full of fun flavor ideas. 

What Macy’s Shoppers Are Saying

Average Rating: 4.7/5

“Great for quick snacks!! We always keep heavy, whipping cream, milk, and sugar in the house now so that we can make whatever kind of ice cream we want. Peanut butter is our absolute favorite!” — Michelene Toller

“Purchased this about a month ago, and it works great. The key is to chill the container overnight or at least 6 hours or so. Make sure the container sits level in the fridge. My purchase had an enclosed Ben & Jerry ice cream recipe book as well as the recipes that came with the machine. Makes great ice cream … Just ordered another container so I can produce two batches back to back. Some reviewers have said that the machine is a bit noisy, but it is only for about 30 minutes so not an issue for me at all.” — Chief 1

“Quiet, super easy to prepare one of the recipes or one of your own, and done mixing in less than 30 minutes. This is so easy it’s going to be hard not to make some ice cream every week!” — Lovehomemadedessert

At 20% off, this machine is a steal — especially when you think of how much you’ll be using it this summer, as it’s predicted to be an especially hot one. And being able to control the sweetness level and the exact ingredients is a huge plus. When it comes to homemade ice cream, you really can’t go wrong with the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker
