    I have no problem with the unit being cold enough. I leave it in the freezer on the coldest setting overnight and make sure my mixture is as cold as possible. it is noisy but freezes very well.

    I have occasion to use the two Cuisinart models described here weekly. My experience with the compressor model is that its very noisy (mentioned above) to the point of precluding conversation, and that it will occasionally not set up if base is not cold. It retails right at 300. The xxx-C model requires a prechilled insert but it lives in the freezer between uses. I use a an ice bath and thermapen to ensure base gets to 40F before pouring in and it works fine every time. Noise is not an issue. It retails at 80.

    I have a krups at home that I hate but it works... If/When it finally dies I'll replace it with the xxx-C.

    Regards,

    I use/like the 30c.

    No experience with 21, but noticed capacity is 1.5 qt. Probably the same basic machine but who has 1.5 qt containers to freeze in?

    I have an old Simac IL Gelataio machine I picket up on eBay that works great. They go for $100-$300 on eBay. They are old machines, but apparantly last real well. You can also still buy parts for them. It is a bigger unit and the bowl does not come out are the negatives. But the big, big plus is it gets real cold fast and stays cold. You don't have to worry about pre-chilling the ingredients, 5 minutes to chill the bowl, 15 minutes to make 2 quarts.

    I keep mine in the the utility room with the washer, so noise and counter space is not an issue.

    I am having the KenwoodIM250's removable non-stick freezer bowl needs to chill for 24 hours before use, so save it a spot in the freezer if you're a spontaneous ice cream chef. Quick and easy to use, this compact machine makes one litre of ready-to-eat soft serve in half an hour that is very good
