Unlike most other equipment, ice cream machines are reserved for one use, which is dispensing frozen product.
These units dispense ice cream directly from the unit's freezer into a cone or cup.
Soft-serve machines can produce ice cream, frozen custard, low- or reduced-fat ice cream, sorbets and frozen yogurt. The units typically do not produce whipped cream or frozen beverages.
Foodservice operators that typically use this equipment include frozen yogurt shops, ice cream stands, cafeterias, delicatessens, bakery/cafes, quick-service restaurants, among others.
