You’ve got a large party coming up, and what better fun than to have your own Soft Serve Ice-cream Machine!
Real Soft-Serve machines used to be huge. You basically needed a truck and a bunch of people to lift the ice-cream maker to get it anywhere.
Those days are over.
When you need a high-capacity soft-serve ice-cream Machine, you want to consider the following things:
1. Ice-cream Maker Size and Weight for Portability
Some, let’s face it, are just too large and too industrial to be portable, but others are too small for large group gatherings.
The Polar Swirl is the perfect size at only 26 inches high x 9 inches wide x 26 inches deep.
It’s 84 pounds, which is good, because you want a solid machine, even if it is compact. Set it on a firm table, and you’re good to go.
It’s got the smallest footprint of any soft-serve ice cream machine in it’s class. Search around, there’s none better!
At these dimensions, it beats out other ice-cream and gelato makers that are similar in size, but lacking in…
2. Soft Serve Hourly Capacity for Large Groups
It doesn’t do much good to have a compact ice-cream maker if you can’t produce a lot of ice-cream for a large party or gathering.
The Polar Swirl can produce nearly 17 Quarts an Hour!
That’s incredible. Other $1,000+ gelato and ice-cream makers top out at about 6 quarts an hour. If you’re looking for one that can handle a large group, you want capacity.
Satisfied Owner: “The first party I used this machine was for 300 people. I was able to supply soft delicious ice cream from 11am till 9pm at night.”
Simply pour the mix into the 7 quart stainless steel holding container, and the machine is off to a fast start with ice-cream ready in 20 minutes.
3. Soft-Serve Machine Quality and Ease of Use
Use Ready-to-use Mixes
Instead of making your own mixes, you can use standard soft-serve mixes to create your delicious dessert. Simply pour the mix into the top, and in about 20 minutes, you’re ready to go!
Easy to Clean Ice-Cream Machine
Other machines are difficult to clean. An easy to clean Ice-cream and Gelato Maker is important.
As one seller suggested cleaning is as easy as:
- Empty any remaining product from the machine
- Flush the machine with warm water
- Remove any dishwasher-safe components and wash them on the top rack of a dishwasher (without heat dry)
- Rinse the machine with a sanitizer such as Stera-Sheen
We’d recommend having a bucket on-hand where you can catch the water you run through the machine.
Satisfied Owner: “Clean up was a cinch—we flushed the machine with Stera-Sheen sanitizer as suggested, and threw all the removable parts in the dishwasher. Can’t wait to try out different flavors. We put the extra in the freezer to eat later. Very happy with our Polar Swirl!”
Consistency is important and that’s a plus with the Polar Swirl offering a 3-year parts warranty on compressor and a 2-year parts warranty on all other parts.
Nothing beats pulling the handle and getting soft and creamy ice-cream that’s ready to eat.
