Keep Your Ice Cream Cold: The Best Options When It Comes to Frozen Treats

Keep Your Ice Cream Cold: The Best Options When It Comes to Frozen Treats

Ice cream may be considered one of the most versatile desserts on the planet. Not only is there traditional ice cream but there is ice cream cake and ice cream sandwiches. In addition, the possibilities for new and inventive ice cream flavors are endless. Almost any flavor can be infused into ice cream and this gives establishments a creative edge.

Here Are a Few Types of Commercial Ice Cream Freezers and Ice Cream Dipping Cabinets to Choose From:

ce Cream Dipping Cabinets

Did you know that for a substance to be considered ice cream it must have a fat content of 10%? This is why ice cream isn’t quite as smooth as gelato tends to be. Because of this fat content, flavors are a bit less intense as the fat blocks the taste buds on the tongue. Ice cream is a creamy classic that many people favor over gelato and there is still a wide range of different flavors offered. An ice cream dipping cabinet acts as a freezer with an open top so ice cream containers are easily accessible. Customers can view individual bins of ice cream in order to choose their preferred flavor. These cabinets take up more space than a soft serve machine but offer a much wider variety of options.


Unlike ice cream, gelato is made with more milk than cream. Because of this, gelato’s flavors are strong and immediate. These flavors are often extremely unique – think Rosemary, Lavender, Cucumber, Chestnut etc. Gelato display cases are sleek and will display your gelato flavors beautifully. These cases also take up a lot more space than a soft serve machine would so they are more of a commitment for your business. Each gelato pan is made of stainless-steel for easy clean up when it comes to switching out flavors.


A soft-serve ice cream machine makes it easy for almost any restaurant or business to offer ice cream to their patrons. There is no need to renovate the design of your kitchen or store because soft-serve machines simple sit on top of any counter. Soft-serve ice cream machines are easy to operate because they make ice cream by using pre-made soft serve mixes. Some can even serve frozen yogurt. Although soft-serve ice cream machines are convenient and allow almost any establishment to add ice cream to the menu, there are a few drawbacks. Soft serve machines can usually only accommodate one or two flavors of ice cream and must be cleaned out regularly.

Whether you simply want to offer a quick and easy, cold treat or dream of expanding into a full scale gelato-making operation, Bush Refrigeration is happy to walk you through the different types of commercial ice cream cabinets suitable for frozen desserts. Consider the space you have to work with and your customer base when it comes to deciding whether a soft serve machine, ice cream dipping case, or gelato display case is right for your business.
