Cuisinart ICE-100 vs Whynter ICM-15LS – Dream Scoops

Video Cuisinart ICE-100 vs Whynter ICM-15LS – Dream Scoops

Anyway, the big difference here is in the way the different amounts of air affect the texture of the ice cream. If you like dense, heavy ice creams you’ll be drawn to the Cuisinart. If you like light, fluffy ice creams then you’ll prefer the Whynter.

What’s the difference in price?

As I write, the Cuisinart ICE-100 [Amazon] is around the same price as the Whynter ICM-15LS [Amazon]. This is a little surprising, since Cuisinart is a more established brand with good reputation and the ICE-100 seems to have the better build quality.

However, prices can change quickly with machines going in and out of special offer. My advice is to keep a close eye on the prices as l see lot’s of changes with ice cream makers!

While the Cuisinart ICE-100 and the Whynter ICM-15LS are on different tiers of the compressor ice cream maker offering, they actually have a lot in common and making a decision between them isn’t easy. So to help you out, I’ve tried to summarize the reasons to choose one over the other…

4 reasons to choose the Cuisinart ICE-100 over the Whynter ICM-15LS

1. It has a better build quality

The Cuisinart is sleeker and more robust than the Whynter. The extra weight also suggests a stronger motor and a more powerful compressor.

2. The 3 year warranty

The Cuisinart is the only company that provides 3 year warranties on their ice cream makers (5 in the UK!). This provides peace of mind that if something goes wrong it will be fixed. But it’s also an indication that Cuisinart have got confidence in the quality of their products.

3. Different dashers for ice cream/frozen yogurt and gelato/sorbet

Two different dashers allows us to vary the amount of air we add to the mixture according to the type of dessert we’re making. This is really useful, especially for sorbet where, if we use a regular dasher, it’s easy to add too much air and make it dry and crumbly.

4. If you prefer dense, creamy ice creams

Whichever dasher you use, the Cuisinart will make very dense, creamy ice creams because it adds less air to the mixture. If this is the type of ice cream you prefer, this machine is the better choice.

1. If you prefer light, fluffy ice creams

The rapid rotation of the Whynter dasher means that it adds lots of air to the ice cream mixture. This results in a lighter, fluffier and also softer ice cream. If this is the sort of ice cream you prefer, this machine is the best choice.

Final thoughts

Although they have a lot in common, in the end, it’s difficult to recommend the Whynter ICM-15LS [Amazon] over the Cuisinart ICE-100, unless you prefer the lighter, fluffier ice creams it produces.

Of course that may well be the case. The Cuisinart ice creams are particularly dense and that won’t be to everybody’s taste.

But I certainly couldn’t say that one makes smoother ice cream than the other. They are both more or less equal in that respect.

So for me, the superior build quality, the generous 3/5 year warranty and the ability to vary the amount of air in our ice creams by using two different paddles, make it fairly easy to choose the Cuisinart ICE-100.
