DO NOT immerse the motor base in water. Wipe it with a moist cloth. Wash the lid,
freezer bowl and mixing arm in warm soapy water to remove any dust or residue
from the manufacturing and shipping process. DO NOT clean any of the parts with
abrasive cleaners or hard implements.
The freezer bowl must be completely frozen before you begin your recipe.
The length of time needed to reach the frozen state depends on how cold your
freezer is. For the most convenient frozen desserts and drinks, leave your freezer
bowl in the freezer at all times. You can take it out any time for immediate use.
In general, freezing time is between 6 hours and 22 hours. To determine whether
the bowl is completely frozen, shake it. If you do not hear liquid moving, the cooling
liquid is frozen. Before freezing, wash and dry the bowl. Wrap it in a plastic bag to
prevent freezer burn. We recommend that you place the freezer bowl in the back of
your freezer where it is coldest.
Reminder: Your freezer should be set to 0°F to ensure proper freezing of all foods.
1. Use Cuisinart’s recipes from the pages that follow, or use your own recipe, making
sure it yields 2 quarts or less. Do not fill the freezer bowl higher than
2" from the
top. The ingredients will increase in volume during the freezing process. For best
results, prepare ingredients in a container from which it is easy to pour.
2. Remove the freezer bowl from the freezer. (Remove plastic bag if you have
wrapped freezer bowl.) Place freezer bowl on the center of the base.
NOTE: Bowl will begin to defrost quickly once it has been removed from freezer.
Use it immediately after removing from freezer.
3. Place mixing arm in freezer bowl. Arm does not fit tightly. It just rests in the center
of the bowl, with the circle side facing up.
4. Place lid on base. Easy-lock lid mechanism allows lid to rest on base in multiple
positions (see diagram).
5.Turn the On/Off switch to ON position. Freezer bowl will begin to turn.
6. Immediately pour ingredients through ingredient spout.
7. Frozen desserts or drinks will be done in 25–35 minutes. The time will depend
on the recipe and volume of the dessert or drink you are making. When the
mixture has thickened to your liking, it is done. If you desire a firmer consistency,
transfer the dessert or drink to an airtight container and store in the freezer for
two or more hours.
Do not store frozen desserts or drinks in the freezer bowl. Desserts and
drinks will stick to the side of the freezer bowl and may damage the bowl.
Store only in a plastic airtight container.
Ingredients such as chips and nuts should be added about 5 minutes before the
recipe is complete. Once the dessert or drink has begun to thicken, add the ingredi-
ents through the ingredient spout. Nuts and other ingredients should be no larger than
a chocolate chip.
The Cuisinart
Pure Indulgence
Frozen Yogurt–Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker is equipped
with a safety feature that automatically stops the unit if the motor overheats. This may
occur if the dessert or drink is extremely thick, if the unit has been running for an exces-
sively long period of time, or if added ingredients (nuts, etc.) are in extremely large pieces.
To reset the unit, turn the ON/OFF switch to the OFF position. Let the unit cool off. After a
few minutes, you may turn the unit on again and continue making the dessert or drink.
Clean the freezer bowl, mixing arm and lid in warm soapy water. DO NOT PUT
CLEANSERS OR IMPLEMENTS. Wipe motor base clean with damp cloth. Dry all
parts thoroughly.
DO NOT put freezer bowl in freezer if bowl is wet. DO NOT store lid, mixing arm,
or base in freezer. You may store the freezer bowl in the freezer for convenient,
immediate use. Before freezing, wrap the bowl in a plastic bag to prevent freezer
burn. Do not store frozen desserts or drinks in the freezer bowl in the freezer for
more than 30 minutes at a time. Transfer frozen desserts or drinks to an airtight
container for longer storage in the freezer.
