An ice-cream machine is a piece of dairy processing equipment used to produce quality ice cream for end-users. The machine helps to prepare the ice cream mixture by employing two methods. The methods include the hand-cranking method or the electric motor method. The end-product is then chilled by processing it by either pre-cooling the machine or freezing the mixture. The machine freezes the mixture by churning it and aerates it to avoid ice crystals. In some lower-priced countertop machines, the resulting mixture is even more frozen for an additional time, even after churning is complete. Price sensitivity of consumers in developing countries compels market players to sell their products at relatively lower prices than in developed countries. Modern day machines provide a faster and easier way to make traditional ice cream, frozen yogurt, or gelato. Some of the highly rated brands of ice cream making machines in the market include Lello, Breville, Cuisinart, Kitchen aid, Hamilton Beach, Whynter, and Nostalgia Electrics.
The ice cream machines market is driven by several large international suppliers and small suppliers. The ice cream market is also influenced by product performance.
