Incoming 2023 Soft Serve Ice Cream Machines - Ultimate Buying Guide

Good afternoon, and happy holidays to all other fellow ice cream enthusiasts! As the year comes to a close, the idea of starting a new venture in the soft serve ice cream field, or even just upgrading your soft serve machines for the new year is on many business owners' minds.

Often, when store owners are first starting out, all the different options can seem overwhelming. There are a plethora of questions regarding your store, your location, and your finances that can all influence which soft serve ice cream machine is actually going to be the best option. What is right for them may not alway be what's right for you.

For new store owners, questions like, “How much traffic will you get each month?”, and, “How much money are you spending on water, electricity, air conditioning, etc.?” are going to be hard to answer before being open and operational. However, we highly encourage doing a bit of research, going out of your way to learn the cost of utilities in the area you want to operate, as well as canvassing how much traffic surrounding businesses get. This data can really help determine which machine will be the best for your business.

With these questions answered, we are ready to move onto the next step; soft serve ice cream machine shopping!

Different Types of Soft Serve Machines

There are many different types of soft serve machines. The three main categories of soft serve ice cream machines are as follows: Countertop or Floor Models, Air Cooled or Water Cooled models, and Gravity or Pressure-Fed soft serve ice cream machine models. Each of these variations work in conjunction with one another, so for example, one type of machine would be a Countertop Air Cooled Gravity-fed soft serve machine. Each category has different requirements that should be considered when choosing them. We will go into more detail about each of these requirements below

Floor Models vs. Countertop Machines

These two different varieties of soft serve machines are somewhat self explanatory; Floor models are soft serve ice cream machines that are usually on wheels, and are about as tall as an average person. On the other hand, countertop soft serve machines are much shorter and mostly don’t have wheels because they are made to be put on a countertop, hence the name. Other than what we described above, generally there are no mechanical differences between the two types; all differences are 100% cosmetic, and the two are equally capable.

Air Cooled vs Water Cooled Commercial Ice Cream Machines

Let's define what we mean by air-cooled and water-cooled. In an air cooled soft serve machine, the refrigeration system uses air to dissipate the heat generated by the machine. This is typically done through the use of a fan or blower. In a water cooled machine, on the other hand, the refrigeration system uses water to transfer the heat away from the machine. This is typically done through the use of a water-to-refrigerant heat exchanger.

So, what are the differences between these two types of machines, and how do you decide which one is right for you?

One key difference is the amount of space required. Water cooled machines typically require a dedicated water line and drain, which can take up more space in your kitchen. Air cooled machines, on the other hand, do not require a dedicated water line and can be more easily integrated into your existing setup.

Another important factor to consider is the ambient temperature of your kitchen. If your kitchen is already quite cool, an air cooled machine may be sufficient. However, if your kitchen is prone to high temperatures (such as in a busy restaurant), a water cooled machine may be a better choice, as it will be better able to dissipate the heat generated by the machine.

Finally, you'll want to consider your budget and maintenance needs. Water cooled machines tend to be more expensive upfront, but they may have lower operating costs due to their more efficient cooling system. On the other hand, air cooled machines may be less expensive upfront, but they may require more frequent maintenance due to the wear and tear on their cooling fans.

Gravity vs Pressure-Fed Commercial Ice Cream Machine

A gravity machine relies on the force of gravity to dispense the ice cream mixture into the freezing cylinder. This is typically done by opening a valve at the bottom of the mixture container, allowing the mixture to flow into the cylinder. In a pressure-fed machine, on the other hand, the ice cream mixture is dispensed into the freezing cylinder using positive pressure. This is typically done through the use of a pump or compressor.

So, what are the differences between these two types of machines, and how do you decide which one is right for you?

One key difference is the speed at which the ice cream mixture is dispensed into the freezing cylinder. Gravity machines tend to be slower, as the mixture must flow through a valve and into the cylinder under the force of gravity. Pressure-fed machines, on the other hand, are much faster, as the mixture is pumped or compressed directly into the cylinder. This can be especially important in busy commercial settings, where speed and efficiency are key.

Another important factor to consider is the consistency of the ice cream mixture. Gravity machines tend to produce a more consistent mixture, as the flow of the mixture is more controlled. Pressure-fed machines, on the other hand, may produce a less consistent mixture, as the mixture is subjected to the forces of the pump or compressor. This can affect the texture and quality of the final product.

The other reason I chose this machine as oujr first, is because it was converted to single phase and has been totally refurbished including new belts, o-rings,blades, and more!
