Ice Cream Machine / June 22, 2018 / Kailey Satterfield
Deciding between buying a single phase ice cream machine or a three phase is a common, yet important, question customers ask. With anything you buy, you always need to weigh out the pros and cons of each. Each option is better suited for a specific situation. Some machine models are only available in one option. In this post we explore all of the above concerns.
Carvel’s original soft serve was just a warmer, softer version of the ice cream he normally sold, but modern soft serve contains significantly more air than frozen ice creams. Think of it as foamier. An at-least-partially apocryphal story about 1980s British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher suggests that when she was working as a food chemist, she helped invent the technique that added even more air to soft serve–cold air, not hot air, but the political metaphor still works. Soft serve can consist mostly of air, writes Daniela Galarza for Eater, while "regular" ice cream has to be less than 30 percent air.
