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.

    Chocolate and peanut butter!!!
    The base uses either your chocolate sorbet, or a glutinous chocolate custard base. The peanut butter is mixed with a little powdered sugar and salt to the desired taste. Add the peanut butter and have a wonderful swirl to the chocolate ice cream. This sweet and salty mix even tops candied bacon ice cream for the amount of praise it receives.

    My favorite ice cream to buy is probably black raspberry, and my favorite to make it probably your cinnamon ice cream from A Perfect Scoop. My husband loves the strawberry frozen yogurt!

    I’m attracted to the idea of not prefreezing the canister, but it almost sounds dangerous in terms of ice cream consumption :)
