Ice Cream Equipment / June 21, 2018 / Halle Cowart
Whether your restaurant is quick-serve or dine-in, you’ve probably already incorporated icecream in some form on your dessert menu. While many turn to a traditional cone or sundae, many restaurants forget to tap into the potential of a gourmet ice cream dessert. From a simple hand-dipped cone to a premium ice cream treat, incorporating summer’s coldest dessert has never been easier.
Freezer Types. Gelato cabinets and ice cream dipping cabinets are pretty common freezer choices, but they vary slightly. True gelato cabinets present gelato in trays in a display case, whereas ice cream is often displayed in tubs. Since gelato is served and stored at a warmer temperature, gelato cabinets are designed to accommodate this. If you serve ice cream out of a gelato cabinet or vice versa, you will probably find yourself serving your product at the wrong consistency. You don’t want to get a reputation for serving melted ice cream or hard-as-a-rock gelato, so it’s best to serve each item from their respective cabinets.
