Win a Cuisinart ICE-100 Ice Cream Machine!

When I found out that Cuisinart had released a brand-new model of their ice cream machine, I asked if they would let me give two away on my site. And I was happy when they agreed!

I’ve been using my ICE-50 for a number of years, which is self-refrigerating, so I can make ice cream and sorbet whenever I want and not have to pre-freeze the canister. It’s the machine I relied heavily on when churning up with the recipes in The Perfect Scoop.

The next generation of this machine, the ICE-100 ice cream freezer will churn up 1 1/2 quarts of ice cream or sorbet with the use of an internal compressor. And now that summer is almost here, it’s the perfect time to add an ice cream freezer to your kitchen.

To enter, leave a comment with the name of your favorite flavor of ice cream, sorbet, or sherbet. Only one entry per person is allowed and please leave a valid e-mail address so you can be contacted if you win.

NOTE: The give-away is now closed. The winners were chosen at random, and are Katie S. and Blaine W, who have been contacted. Thanks to all who entered! – dl

The comments will be closed on Tuesday – June 19, 2012, at 6pm Paris time. Please read the rules below carefully before entering.

Nectarine Sorbet

    I’d love to experiment with making new flavors of ice cream and sorbet in my kitchen this summer!

    My favorite flavor is coconut gelato. But I’d like to try to make a boozy blood orange sorbet with a touch of tequila. Do you think it would work?

    Danish sweet cream. It’s the ultimate vanilla ice cream. Would love to make it in my very own Cuisinart.

  • June 19, 2012 4:47pm

    It really really depends on the day and mood. Salty caramel and dark chocolate are always one of my top favorites though. Now I am in Lebanon and am loving the pistachio, mastic and clotted cream flavors here.

    My favorite (sorbet) is Rose, and I used to eat on the island of Cyprus when I would go and visit my family. It is the most refreshing flavor, not too sweat with just the slightest bitterness to balance it out. I’ve been looking for a good recipe for years, and still trying to find the best one!

    Hello! My favourite flavour is classic vanilla or maybe banana or perhaps a sweet salty pistachio? Actually I think it would be easier to name the ice-cream I don’t like….. not many! bisous

  • June 19, 2012 5:31pm

    My favorite is a pamplemouse rose gelato that my wife ordered (and was kind enough to share with me) at a small shop in Quebec City a few years back; having grown up with grapefruit in Florida, it was unexpectedly good and acidic. Not exactly what you expect in a frozen dairy product!

    1) Tiger stripes icecream – Orange flavored icecream with chocolate stripes – This is the best icecream that I’ve ever had. Proud to say that I made it myself :). The name is so because the icecream mimics the coat & stripes of a tiger – orange with chocolate stripes.
    2) Banana with mini peanut butter cups mixed in.
