Types of Ice Cream Machines

Ice Cream Machines

Ice Cream Makers come in many varieties. You can choose from manual, semi-automatic and automatic types of ice cream makers. Manual types are quite easy to use and require little effort on your part other than pouring in the ingredients and pushing the button. However, it usually cannot produce large quantities and needs to be stored outdoors where it can be adequately protected from extreme temperatures. Automatic ice cream makers, on the other hand, are more convenient because you can simply leave it to get cold on its own and can also be moved around to any room of the house without disturbing your ice cream.

 

Manual ice cream machines work in a very simple manner. Descriptionively, it consists of three parts: the bowl that hold the ingredients and the roller that churn the ice cream; and the pump which provide the suction to draw in the bowl and the ingredients, as well as the water for the churning action. Manual ice cream machines can only churn small amounts of ice cream at a time, which makes it less efficient. On the other hand, the automated type can churn large amounts of ice cream within a short period of time - sometimes in just a few minutes.

 

The semi-automatic type of ice cream machines is probably the best choice for those who want to churn large quantities of ice cream on a regular basis. It is essentially the same as the standard electric ice cream machines, except for the fact that it contains its own coolant-lined canister and internal cooling system. These types of ice cream machines are the top pick among professionals and educated consumers alike. It has a stainless steel bowl with a built-in cooling system that takes up minimal space and which ensures that it remains fresh until it is served.

 

The top pick among the mini ice cream machines is the miniaturized electric type, which is made especially for home use. It is intended to be a small enough version of the full size versions. These types of machines are particularly designed for home use because of their ability to produce very high volume amounts of ice cream without any difficulty. In fact, it is considered to be a better choice than some of the miniaturized machines that are designed to be used for mass production of other kinds of desserts, such as sorbet and frozen fruit.

 

Next on the list is the high volume soft-serve machines. These are usually more expensive than their counterparts, but they are much better for producing a large amount of ice cream at once. They work by using an internal compressor that generates a steady stream of cold air. The compressor heats up the mixture before sending it into a chute or into the bowl, from where it is discharged into the recipient. A compressor can also create a vacuum effect to increase the speed of the churning process. While this particular machine may not be ideal for individual tastes, it is perfect for commercial applications because it can churn more in a relatively shorter period of time.

 

There are also the tank less ice cream machines, also known as the small canister types. These machines are specially designed to be used indoors. They are similar to the miniaturized ones, but their internal heating and cooling system do not require a compressor. The main advantage of these types of machines is that you can maintain constant room temperature by regularly exposing the canister to water, thereby reducing the risk of ice cream churning prematurely because of a sudden change in room temperature.

 

The next type of Ice Cream Maker is the ones that create soft, smooth ice creams with a defined finish, such as a silky texture. These products have a defined finish, which gives them a smoother feel and a finer texture than ordinary cold cream. This eliminates the need for you to pre-set your own finish temperature and texture.

 

Lastly, there are the freezers that allow you to defrost your desserts after they are frozen. Once the temperature of the canister reaches its freezing point, it will start to churn ice cream once the liquid refrigeration process begins. You will notice that the texture will be somewhat thicker and might be a little more firm. These types of commercial ice cream makers are mostly used in commercial food chains, but are good for home use as well, mainly because they are more affordable than the other two types of models.
