Before Using for the First Time
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.
- Freezing Time and Bowl Preparation
The freezer bowl must be completely frozen before you begin your recipe. Before freezing, wash and dry the bowl. The length of time needed to reach the frozen state depends on how cold your freezer is. It is recommended that you place the freezer bowl in the back of your freezer where it is coldest. Be sure to place the freezer bowl on a flat surface in its upright position for even freezing.
Generally, freezing time is between 16 and 24 hours. Shake the bowl to determine whether it is completely frozen. If you do not hear the liquid within the bowl moving, the cooling liquid is therefore frozen. For the most convenient frozen desserts and drinks, leave your freezer bowl in the freezer at all times. Use the bowl immediately after removing from the freezer. It will begin to quickly defrost once it has been removed from the freezer.
Reminder: Your freezer should be set to zero degree Fahrenheit to ensure proper freezing of all foods.
- Adding Ingredients
Ingredients such as chips and nuts should be added about 5 minutes before the recipe is complete. Once the dessert has begun to thicken, add the ingredients through the ingredient spout. Nuts and other ingredients should be no larger than a chocolate chip.
- Safety Feature
The Cuisinart Automatic Frozen Yogurt–Ice Cream and Sorbet Maker is equipped with a safety feature that automatically stops the unit if the motor overheats. This may occur if the dessert is extremely thick, if the unit has been running for an excessively long period of time, or if added ingredients (nuts, etc.) are in extremely large pieces. To reset the unit, put the On/ Off switch in the Off position and unplug the unit. Let the unit cool off. After a few minutes, you may turn the unit on again and continue making the dessert.

- Making Frozen Desserts
1. Prepare recipe ingredients from pages that follow or from your own recipe. Flip booklet over for Cuisinart recipes. If you use your own recipe, be sure it yields 1-1/2 quarts or less.
2. Remove the freezer bowl from the freezer. 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 paddle in freezer bowl. It just rests in the center of the bowl, with the circle side facing up.
4. Place lid on base and rotate clockwise until tabs on lid lock in place on base.
5. Press On/ Off switch to On position. Freezer bowl will begin to turn.
6. Immediately pour ingredients through ingredient spout.
Note: Ingredients must be added to the freezer bowl after unit is turned on.
7. Frozen desserts will be done in less than 20 minutes. The time will depend on the recipe and volume of the dessert you are making. When the mixture has thickened to your liking, it is done. If you desire a firmer consistency, transfer the dessert to an airtight container and store in the freezer for two or more hours.
Note: Do not store frozen desserts in the freezer bowl. Desserts will stick to the sides of the freezer bowl and may damage the bowl. Store only in a freezer-safe airtight container.
