The frozen yogurt craze is amongst us.  If you’ve consumed Pinkberry than you know what we’re talking about.  But boy-oh-boy can that stuff get expensive.  Sure, you can run off to the store and purchase a tub of your favorite ice cream or froyo, but nothing will beat the creamy texture of soft-serve.  And stiring your ice cream until it’s soft hardly counts as true soft-serve – there is too much manual labor involved.

The Cuisinart Mix-It-In Soft-Serve Ice Cream maker is what every adult who was raised watching the show “Silver Spoon” dreamt of.  His home had a rideable train set and an array of arcade cabinets.  This machine, while a far cry from an indoor locomotive, can produce soft serve frozen yogurt or ice cream in just 20-minute’s time.  Just pour the ingredients and hit the dial.  It uses no chemicals or salt, but you’ll need to make sure to chill the included double-insulated freezer bowl.

A pull handle, just like the professional machines, serves the ice cream in a swirly like fashion, while three built-in condiment dispensers hold your choice of sprinkles, mini M&Ms, chocolate chips and whatever your palette desires.  They’ve even built-in a spot to store a stack of pointed or flat-bottom cones.

Amazon sells it for $89.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
