Cuisinart products allow people to eat healthier with less labor. Cuisinart frozen yogurt makers continue to maintain the sleek modern style that the company embraces.
Ice cream is first credited to the Chinese and date back to about 3000 B.C. It is believed they used fruits and either shaved ice or mountain snow.
It was much later when Marco Polo, after returning from his sail to the East, is believed to introduce the Italians in the West to this early form of ice cream.
Although there are earlier reports of Roman Emperors enjoying similar treats centuries before Marco Polo was even born.
The Italians, being fond of sweets, took the concept and made it their own by making it creamier and the predecessor to what we now know as ice cream.
Ice cream remained a rare delicacy until 1800 when insulated ice houses were invented. This made ice and ice cream available year round.
Industrial manufacturing of ice cream followed shortly after. With concerns over the fat content of ice cream many people have switched over to frozen yogurt. You can use the two machines to make both types of frozen treat.
