There's a demand for low-volume, high quality ice-cream machines among operators who want to offer artisan hard ice-cream. The function of an ice-cream maker, or batch freezer, is to take a chilled egg custard and churn it slowly under a freeze temperature - which prevents large ice crystals forming and giving a coarse texture - until it forms smooth ice-cream

Is it easy to clean? The machine will need cleaning after every batch because of the use of dairy products
Check the quantity produced per batch and the length of the cycle to ensure that the output is sufficient to meet your requirements
Take a machine on trial to check that you're happy with the consistency of the ice-cream
Do you require the machine to make other products in addition to ice-cream, such as granitas and sorbets, other desserts or even savoury items?
