I just noticed that Amazon is selling Cuisinart Ice Cream Makers for only $19.99! These machines are reconditioned, which means they were re-built at the factory and may have cosmetic blemishes. It’s an amazing deal and an inexpensive way to chill-out this summer.
This kind of machine has a canister that gets pre-frozen in advance, twenty four hours prior to churning—some people simply store theirs in the freezer all the time. The upside is that they’re inexpensive and they don’t churn a lot of air into the custard.
They also chill up a pretty mean margarita, too.
Don’t know how long they plan to feature these machines, but since they’re at the top of their best-selling kitchen items, they’ll probably go fast…

*Update: Amazon is currently sold out of the very low-priced reconditioned ice cream makers, but it’s worth keeping an eye on their site as these kind of deals come and go frequently. To those who got machines—happy churning!
