Ice cream equipment manufacturer Carpigiani has revealed its latest launch, the Ready 14 20.
This is the second model in the recently announced Carpigiani ‘Restaurant Range’ and is designed to deliver the entire gelato production process in one countertop appliance.
Capable of pasteurising, aging and freezing in one, the Ready 14 20 builds on the success of the existing, floor-standing Carpigiani Ready, to offer what is said to be an efficient, compact gelato maker, capable of producing between 14kg-20kg of finished product per hour.
Initially launched at Sigep 2019, the Ready 14 20 is now available for the first time in the UK. With nine pre-set programmes, including six for gelato and sorbet, one for fruit slush, two for special milk or fruit-based mixes and three dedicated to pasteurisation using the heat-cool cycles, the Ready 14 20 is designed to be intuitive and simple to use.
Complete with Hard-O-Tronic technology and the latest POM blades, the unit senses the consistency of the gelato to ensure optimal results. Self-regulating scraper blades help to constantly clean the cylinder and maximise yield, whilst a post cooling system helps to maintain consistency during the extraction process.
The gelato maker features a design optimised for compact professional kitchens and those lacking in available space. Complete with a single-phase supply, the new appliance is designed to be quick to setup and to operate.
An optional spray gun with spiral hose and the inclusion of a delayed cleaning cycle which controls the temperature in the cylinder once the gelato has been extracted should make for a fast cleaning and improved hygiene standards.
Scott Duncan, sales director at Carpigiani UK said: “The new Carpigiani Ready 14 20 represents one of the larger capacity machines in our recently launched ‘Restaurant Range’ yet features a relatively compact design and small footprint. This makes it ideal for those chefs looking to produce vibrant, fresh, artisan gelato for their menu, but don’t have the available space for multiple units.
“With its innovative hot and cold technology in one, the Ready 14 20, allows the operator to effortlessly pasteurise, age, churn and freeze a mix in one space-efficient appliance. With the pre-set programmes, it’s incredibly simple to create delicious gelato, sorbet, slush, patisserie, sauces and toppings in one.”
As an optional extra, the new Ready 14 20 can be fitted with Carpigiani’s Teorema technology, designed to remotely monitor use and diagnose faults via the internet.
