A batch freezer is a specialized piece of equipment used in the frozen dessert industry for the purpose of producing various types of frozen desserts, such as ice cream, gelato, sorbet, and frozen yogurt, in controlled quantities or batches. The batch freezer operates by simultaneously churning and freezing the dessert mixture, resulting in a smooth, consistent texture and optimal incorporation of air (overrun) to achieve the desired product density and quality. Batch freezers vary in size, capacity, and features, and are commonly employed by artisanal and small-scale dessert manufacturers, as well as larger production facilities for specialty or limited-edition products.
