“Ice cream is undoubtedly a favourite of children and adults alike, so adding a selection of soft-serve offerings to your menu can be an easy way to ensure your menu appeals a wide range of customers. Quick and simple to produce, available in a choice of flavours, freshly produced, soft serve ice cream commands an excellent profit margin, and can really help to grow a business’s revenue and maximise profits through impulse sales
Soft serve ice cream machines come in a range of sizes and styles in order to meet individual operators’ needs. Carpigiani is a global leader in the manufacture of ice cream equipment offer a wide-ranging number of both floor standing and countertop appliances, with a choice of one or two flavours. Simple to operate and maintain, a Carpigiani soft serve machine will produce wonderfully smooth and indulgent soft ice cream.
The new Carpigiani 161 series of soft serve models is the perfect choice for venues where space is at a premium. Offering a real breakthrough in soft serve ice cream technology, the 161 combines state-of the art technology with features usually reserved for larger, floor standing models, including a self-pasteurising model. What’s more, the unique design of the 161 range means a footprint of just 300mm x 630mm x 850 mm (w/d/h).
The New 161 range uses cooled technology, generating flow through a removable air filter at the base of the unit, channelling hot air exiting at the top. This not only improves efficiency, but also allows the unit to be positioned directly next to another appliance, for even greater space efficiency on a limited countertop.
A contemporary stainless-steel counter top design, complete with multifunctional display, standard 13-amp plug-and-go operation (never before available for a self-pasteurising model) and the ability to be connected to our wireless Teorema software gives operators the choice of using our unique remote monitoring and diagnostic software, means an easy to use appliance, with an impressive hourly output of up to 15kg. As with the other models our soft serve range, the new Carpigiani 161 is fitted with a unique tank agitator to ensure an exceptional product consistency, while also allowing operators to serve frozen yoghurt without risking a separation of the mix.
Staff will also enjoy using the 161 G SP model as it comes with an automatic self-pasteurisation function, which is capable of achieving an extraordinary 42 day cleaning cycle. A heated cylinder function quickly defrosts the chamber to further speed up the process of manual cleaning when required.”
