The correct balance of the mixture of ice cream is the result of a delicate balance of grams.Changing the quantity of a single ingredient will immediately change the relationships between everyone else. Anyone who has tried balancing a blend of paper, pen and calculator knows very well that there is something to go wrong …

The Solution For a Perfect Blend

Italian ice cream constantly checks and recalculates the weights and percentages of each ingredient by clearly indicating the absence or excess of each component of the ice cream according to the parameters set by the user.

Creating a perfectly balanced blend does not take more than a couple of minutes. Once you’ve done the balancing, you just have to set the amount of finished mixture you want to prepare and eventually put in the preparation instructions.
