Rumor Confirmed! Cuisinart Ice-Cream Maker Includes Long Rumored Sprinkle Dispenser

Cuisinart Ice-45 Mix-It-In Soft-Serve 1-1/2-Quart Ice-Cream Maker (Images courtesy Amazon)
By Andrew Liszewski

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sick of reading the endless rumors about whether or not Cuisinart was finally going to release an updated version of their soft-serve ice-cream maker with a built-in sprinkle dispenser. I know it was a bit disappointing when the original version was announced and it didn’t include the dispenser, but other features like the double-insulated freezer bowls and the ability to scoop or dispense the ice cream put it well ahead of other models already on the market. And as we all know, it still sold very well.

But in a move that’s sure to make Cuisinart fanboys happy (and put an end to countless ‘leaked’ images and Photoshop mockups) the company has released the Ice-45 Mix-It-In Soft Serve Ice-Cream Maker that includes not one, but three different topping dispensers! (A move that even supposed ‘Cuisinart insiders’ didn’t see coming.) Of course while many users were also hoping for a built-in hot fudge reservoir on the new model, it seems those rumors were just wild speculation, and for the time being we’ll just have to settle with third-party solutions like a double-boiler on the stove.

The Cuisinart Ice-45 is available in the US from Amazon.com for $84.31. And while it hasn’t been officially announced, it’s also rumored that the ice-cream maker will be officially carried by Amazon.co.uk in the UK, Amazon.ca in Canada, and Amazon.co.jp in Japan.

    I see what you did there with that post. Nice work.

    However, as happy as I am that it has the sprinkles dispenser, I was really hoping it would also have a front facing camera.

    I’m just happy they switched to a flush mount cone holder. I was tired of having to use a third-party cone adapter when I wanted to use my own ice cream cones. Who wants to use the included Cusinart cone?

    These are (oddly enough) available as a “Visa Reward” for those with VanCity Visa cards: https://www.myvisarewardsplus.com/rewards/Product.aspx?cash_add_mode=Product&cprod_code=COR100225

    Andrew, I’ve been waiting for this second gen version, but I NEED to know before I buy- can I get it in black or is it only in white??? This is VERY important to my business. Also, it seems to be a little bit thicker than the previous model, I have to know complete dimensions right away, please provide them. And finally can you please benchmark it against the previous model IMMEDIATELY so that we can make better informed purchasing decisions? If it is not 2x faster I’m not sure anyone would buy it, IMHO.

    Well, unfortunately it seems that I haven’t been deemed worthy enough to get an actual review unit from Cuisinart. So I’m not able to compare it against the original model in terms of size or benchmarks. But I’ve heard a disturbing rumor that the Ice-45 can only be used to make chocolate ice cream. What the crap is that? What if I want to make vanilla or strawberry? Hopefully some clever chef will find a workaround so that it can be used with other flavors.
