We Love Some Ice Cream!

 

My daughter doesn’t have a sweet tooth. She doesn’t like cake nor chocolate. But she has a soft spot for ice cream. If she can get away with it, she would really have an ice cream everyday. She is particularly fond of vanilla soft ice cream on a sundae cone. She wants it plain and on a cone all the time.

My husband even joked around one time that we should probably get one of those soft serve machines we regularly buy from at the mall. The server even knows our family already.

If you are considering to buy one for your business, here are some things you need to consider:

Size of the Machine

An important thing to focus on first is the height and width of your machine. To begin, measure how big the space is where the machine will be placed, so you know if you will need to look more towards a smaller or bigger equipment.

Servings and Volume
Look into how many ounces are in one serving per minute. If you are going to be making a business out of the machine, you would need to know serving rates and volume. Since you are starting out, you might need to risk on whether you are going to get a machine that has a high, medium or low output. If you’re just looking for a simple ice cream machine for your kitchen, product sampling, or just a little cafe I’d recommend a low volume machine. But if it’s a stand alone ice cream machine, a high volume one would be better.

Flavors
Children are drawn to chocolate flavors but a vanilla flavor is a classic and can be a constant choice. An important thing to keep in mind is the versatility of how many flavors the machine can provide and if it can twist or combine flavors. Flavor twists like this entertain and satisfy customers.

Machine Maintenance and Cleaning
Look for a machine that is made out of stainless steel. It will be easier to clean. Anything else might end up changing the flavor of your ice cream in the long run or worse, develop rust.
