Equipment Review – Taylor C161 NEW for 2018!The Twin-Twist has had a face lift…

Introducing the Taylor C161 twin flavour soft serve machine, NEW for 2018!

For all of you Taylor aficionados out there, the C161 is the next generation of small, counter top, gravity fed soft serve freezers which replaces the now obsolete Taylor Mate 161. Available NOW, the new evolution C161 has been redesigned to be more aesthetically pleasing whilst increasing operational efficiency.

New features of the Taylor C161 include:

  • Equipment Review – Taylor C161 NEW for 2018!

    The NEW Taylor C161 Twin Twist Soft Serve

    Glass touch screen control with LED indicator lights – these replace the older style of membrane ‘blister buttons’ making the controls easier and more intuitive whilst maintaining a hygienic, easy to clean interface.
  • Plastic hopper cover made from Tritan™ which is BPA free – this replaces the original metal cover with the rubber gasket making the machine easier to keep clean and also helps to reduce noise and vibrations making the machine quieter.
  • Longer draw handles – up grading the slightly fiddly original design makes the C161 easier to use, especially when they’re in ‘self-service’ applications.
  • Redesigned drip tray – the stainless steel design reduces the effect of product ‘splashing’ compared with the plastic grate-style tray on the original 161.
  • Simpler power requirements – the NEW C161 only needs a single dedicated 13amp power supply where the original 161 required two or a single 20amp supply. This makes the C161 far easier to install as no complicated electrics are required.

Equipment Review – Taylor C161 NEW for 2018!The internal components have been redesigned and rearranged making the new C161 slightly shallower which means it will comfortably fit on most standard depth work surfaces or it can be fitted to a Taylor storage cart if that is operationally better.

Component evolution and updates to the Taylor manufacturing process has resulted in a new machine which not only works more efficiently (requires less power) but it also runs much quieter than older styles of machine.

The Taylor C161 is the perfect addition to any business looking to serve multiple flavours of either soft ice cream, frozen yogurt, fruit sorbet, ‘vegan frozen dessert’ or any combination of them. The small footprint, air cooled design and simple electrical requirements makes it accessible to all.

Other C161 features include:

  • Equipment Review – Taylor C161 NEW for 2018!Freezing Cylinder – Two, 1.4 liter.
  • Mix Hopper – Two, 7.6 litre. Separate hopper refrigeration maintains mix below 5ºC in Auto and Standby modes.
  • Indicator Lights – The Mix Low light alerts the operator to add mix. Audible alarm may be enabled to sound when mix is low.
  • Electronic Controls – Finished product quality is monitored by Softech™ controls that measure viscosity.
  • Standby – During long no-use periods, the standby feature maintains safe product temperatures in the mix hopper and freezing cylinder.
  • Air Filter – Easily removable, cleanable air filter helps keep condenser clean for optimal refrigeration system performance.
  • Door Interlock System – Protects the operator from injury as the beater will not operate without the dispensing door in place.
