One-Shot, part of the McGill Technology Group, has launched its latest dispensing system for ice cream, the Solomia Soft.
One-Shot claims the system is easy to use - a few turns of the handle at the top of the machine and a portion of ice cream is quickly and readily dispensed.
The system incorporates a base unit storage cabinet, which keeps the ice cream portions at the correct temperature, and a dispensing unit at the top.
One-Shot says the key to the system is the intelligent cartridge. Each cartridge holds a standard 160 ml or larger 250 ml portion and has its own star shaped extrusion nozzle covered by atear-off tab.
The cartridge is filled at the dairy and its lid is sealed ensuring hygiene and product integrity. When ice cream is dispensed, the tab covering the star shaped nozzle is removed and thecontainer inserted into the top of the machine. The handle on the side of the machine is turned and the lid of the container is forced inside out by a plunger which forces the ice cream out of the container leaving the empty cartridge ready for disposal.
Most critical to the concept is that at no time does the ice cream come into contact with any part of the machine which, the company says, means the dispenser is clean, free from contamination and therefore hygienic.
Such is the design of the One-Shot container that it can be filled with a number of different dairy products including ice cream, frozen yoghurt andSherbet together with a variety of other ingredients such as chocolate chips and nuts.Multiple flavours in each portion can also be prepared.
One-Shot provides a variety of dairy-based dispensing systems. It is based in London, UK and provides its systems on a global basis.
