Review

The Cuisinart CYM-100 is easy to use. Since it has auto cooling which eliminates the pain of moving the yogurt into the freezer to get frozen yogurt. This saves a lot of time and is the main feature above the cheaper yogurt makers that are available in the market.

It prepares the yogurt at just a click of one switch.

Cuisinart CYM-100 is the only frozen yogurt maker and also can be used for ice creams.

Cleaning this maker is easy. It should be cleaned after each use so that the food does not dry on it. It can be washed with warm soap water or placed in the dishwasher. The base can be wiped with a damp cloth and dried immediately.

It is expensive than the other yogurt makers. But the additional benefits do weigh over the cost.
