Ice Cream Equipment / June 22, 2018 / Gwendolyn Shin
Cuisinart makes another model, the Flavor Duo, with two 1-quart freezer bowls, which enables you to make two different kinds of ice cream simultaneously. These countertop units are very affordable (both well under $100) and produce excellent ice cream and a variety of other frozen desserts. By the way, the difference in these units and the Italian gelato makers costing $600-$700 is the mechanism involved. These more expensive makers do not require pre-frozen freezer bowls, but contain little compressors that actually chill and eventually freeze the ice cream - a much more complex piece of equipment.
If you are running an ice cream shop you already know that there is one item that your employees cannot do without and that is some kind of dispenser for your ice cream cones. You need this item because without it your cones will crack, crumble, chip, break and get landed on by flies. The only answer is to keep the cones stacked in some kind of dispenser, whether it be a vertical one like in the picture above or a horizontal one. You can get them in different sizes for dispensing different types of cones, including double cones and waffle cones.
