The world leader in ice cream and gelato equipment, Carpigiani, has announced the launch of the brand new 161, an innovative, compact, soft serve ice cream portfolio. Available in the UK from January 2018, the new 161 series will feature a 161 G and 161 G SP, a self-pasteurising model, the latter of which is capable of achieving an incredible 42 day cleaning cycle.
As expected from Carpigiani, the new 161 portfolio is packed full of state-of-the-art technology, pioneering features and inventive designs, to create the company’s smallest ever soft serve machine. Ideal for cafés, coffee shops, restaurants and kiosks lacking in available space, the unique design of the 161 results in a footprint of just 300mm x 630mm x 850 mm (w/d/h). What’s more, the models in the 161 range will be sold at an all-time low accessible price point of under five and a half thousand pounds for the 161 G, non-pasteurising model and less than six and a half thousand pounds for the 161 G SP, self-pasteurising model.
Designed from the ground up, the new 161 uses air 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, delivering 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 delivered ‘Teorema Ready’ giving operators the choice of using Carpigiani’s unique remote monitoring and diagnostic software, achieves an easy to use appliance, with an impressive hourly output of up to 15kg. As with the other models the company’s 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 use the appliance to produce frozen yoghurt, without the risk of the mix separating.
Efficient cleaning is achieved, particularly with the 161 G SP with its automatic self-pasteurisation, capable of achieving an extraordinary 42 day cleaning cycle, while a heated cylinder function, quickly defrosts the chamber to further aid a rapid manual clean down when required.
“The 161 is a breakthrough in ice cream production, offering the optimum solution for those looking to serve wonderfully indulgent soft serve ice cream and the latest yogurt offerings, but have previously been restricted by available space or electrical supply. Taking innovation to the next level, the unit features everything an operator would need to efficiently deliver an outstanding product offering, including the world’s smallest self-pasteurising tank, and amazingly low purchase prices from around £5,500+VAT.
”Despite its compact size, the 161 is able to produce up to 15kg per hour of soft serve ice cream or frozen yoghurt from the easy to fill, 5-litre tank. We’re delighted to have launched this new model, which will form the smallest in our soft serve range and is expected to unlock the unique possibilities that soft-serve offers operators across the industry.”
