Be sure your freezer is set cold enough to freeze this completely. If it's not frozen completely (when you shake it, stuff still moves inside the desert container) then it won't freeze. Got the freezer cold enough and it works everytime. Takes under 30 minutes to freeze. Great machine, little prep/tear down time, leaving more time to enjoy the ice cream.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I followed the directions, word for word, in the Cuisinart manual on how to make a sorbet and an ice cream. They did not freeze (ingredients were added cold, not even room temperature). I put the ice cream maker in the freezer while it was churning for 2 hours. It still did not freeze. How is it possible that something will freeze in just 20 minutes???
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
