Types of Commercial Ice Cream Machines

The two most commercial ice cream machines in Australia are soft-serve ice cream machines and batch freezers. The type of frozen dessert you want to serve will determine which one you require for your business.

  • Soft-serve ice cream machines - use agitation to freeze liquid ice cream mix, which is then dispensed directly from the machine into a cone or cup.
  • Batch freezers - enable you to make a single batch of a frozen dessert, such as hard ice cream, by beating and freezing the liquid mix into a creamy, smooth texture.

Things To Consider When Choosing An Ice Cream Machine

Aside from the type of ice cream you want to offer, there are many other factors to consider when selecting a machine, such as output and style.

  • Output - The most significant element to consider in purchasing is getting an ice cream machine that can handle the amount of output your business requires.
  • Type of Installation - ice cream machines are available as a countertop or free-standing devices, commonly known as floor units. Countertop machines, as the name implies, are made to sit neatly on a countertop, whereas floor variants are larger and designed to stand on floors.
  • Production Style - the production style is how your machine freezes the ice cream and gives it out. The total volume capacity of the ice cream machine is based on the production style, so you will need to know how much finished product you want to make before you choose the production style for your unit.

We hope we’ve provided enough information to help you choose the best commercial ice cream machines in Australia for your business. Use this information to your advantage and make the most of your commercial ice cream machine!
