I recommend using the Cuisinart Pure Indulgence Ice Cream Maker.

You freeze your ice cream bowl for 24 hours, then place it in your ice cream maker.

Place your plastic mixing part inside the bowl, and then put the lid on.

There’s only 1 button of on and off.

They make it simple to make ice cream in about 20-25 minutes. Make sure to set up your ice cream maker in a different room that you can close the door. Churning ice cream is a loud process, but once it’s done, you’ll love making ice cream!!
