Amazon Prime Day is a great time to snag items that you might not necessarily need but are definitely worth the price when they're on sale. And just in time for National Ice Cream Day (this Sunday, July 17), you can get our all-time favorite Cuisinart ice cream maker for just $49 — the cheapest it's been this year. This model earned our best overall ice cream maker award because it's lightweight, affordable, and churns out homemade ice cream in less than 20 minutes. If you've been thinking about investing in an ice cream machine, consider this your sign. But hurry, it's only a matter of time before the price jumps back up to $70.

Not only does the Cuisinart 1.5-Quart Ice Cream Maker have an under-$50 price tag, but it also has the seal of approval from Jeni Britton, a James Beard Award-Winning ice cream maker and the founder of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams. In fact, Britton used a previous version of this model to create recipes for her cookbook Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home, which features 100 different mouthwatering ice cream recipes, including Goat Cheese with Roasted Cherries. If you weren't already craving ice cream, we can almost guarantee you are now.

Along with an ice cream expert's approval, the Cuisinart 1.5-quart ice cream maker has more than 11,300 five-star ratings from shoppers, emphasizing its ease of operation, durability, and ability to get the job done well and fast. The machine is fully automatic with the simple press of a button, unlike hand crank ice cream makers that require continuous work for what can seem like hours. With that said, this model is an excellent choice for all ages to get involved in the ice cream-making process.

The ice cream maker consists of four parts: a double-insulated freezer bowl, a mixing paddle, a cover, and a base. The double-insulated bowl can make up to about 6 cups of ice cream, and it easily fits into most freezers where it will need to chill for about 16 hours once the mixture is ready. Our favorite part about the bowl is that it eliminates the need for ice, so the ice cream's consistency will be extra creamy. When preparing your frozen dessert, whether it be frozen yogurt, ice cream, or sorbet, you can add mix-ins, like chocolate chips and fruit, through the opening of the cover lid.

No matter if you plan on celebrating National Ice Cream Day or not, this machine is sure to be put to good use for birthdays, holiday parties, backyard barbecues, and beyond. At its lowest price of the year, the expert- and editor-loved Cuisinart ice cream maker is a true Prime Day bargain.
