Kitchen Stuff: The Ice Cream Maker

Ice Cream Maker

In a small kitchen, you don’t need a lot of equipment to cook great food. Still, you do need some pots, pans, utensils, and dishes–obviously. In the BGSK book, you’ll find a bare bones list of necessary equipment, but I’ve long wanted to bring you a similar resource on the web.

So we’re going one by one, stocking up our virtual pantries and maybe our real ones too.

This week is a bit of an exception, because we’re talking about the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. This tool may not be as necessary as a pot or a pan. But if you’re into cooking and especially baking, you likely enjoy fooling around in the kitchen. Come summer, there’s no better way to experiment with flavors and concoctions than by making your own ice cream.

This particular ice-cream maker is one of the smaller ones around. You simply freeze the bowl overnight in the fridge and then pour your ice cream base into it. In 15 minutes of churning, you’ve got damn good homemade ice cream.

So what do you think? Would you make room in your kitchen cabinets for the bringer of homemade ice cream?

Here’s a glimpse of what you could be making in it (from top to bottom):

    I love this! Recently I’ve been thinking about wanting one. I just might have to make the investment.

    I would totally make room in my kitchen for this! Only, it would have to be my future apartment’s kitchen since my parents have forever banned ice cream makers from our house. Long story short: they got one as a wedding gift in the 1980s, tried to use and after many long hours of making ice cream, decided it wasn’t worth the effort. Ice cream maker was regifted not long afterwards
