Stoelting Ice Cream Machine
Stoelting’s Gravity Soft Serve/Yogurt Freezer dispenses two single flavors, or combine for twin twist. This model is ideal for self-serve frozen yogurt or ice cream operations.
Today we're going to be talking about how the versatile line of Stoelting equipment can help you add a shake program to your existing menu. Now, today we'll be going over the F231 Stoelting soft serve machine. It's a gravity-fed, two-barrel with a twist machine, which will do soft serve and a frozen yogurt product. And we're also going to be working with the stoelting mix-in blender.
Both are very versatile machines, and we're going to talk specifically about some of the features and benefits and how you can use them to to grow or add a shake program to your business. The Twist feature allows you to serve two flavors individually or combine flavors for a unique twist. The self-closing spigot eliminates waste and ensures precise portion control. One of the features I really love about this F231 is the fact that it has IntelliTec2 controls. So this control communicates to the operator throgh the LCD screen, so it really gives you great control over what's happening with the machine.
It's a very compact design, particularly in locations where floor space is a premium. So you do get a lot of bang for your Bucks so far as capacity in a smaller footprint machine. I like this clear faceplate when you've got the different color of the products here that are visible to the customer. It's a great marketing process that people buy with their eyes. So there are some of the great features and benefits of this unit.
