We never use a cheap bunker freezer and then try to modify it for use outdoors in high ambient temperatures. Competitors who use a cheap convenience store freezer for their carts will state that their freezer is NSF and UL/ETL listed. While that may be true, it does not mean that the cart they produce meets the standards of UL/ETL or NSF for a finished product to be used outdoors. The freezer itself might be NSF, but the freezer put on a cart for outside sales is not. The local health department requirement not something you play with.

 All of our ice cream carts are manufactured 100% in the USA and feature custom freezers with stainless steel bottoms on the interiors of the carts. When you have the inevitable accident of having melted product, particularly with frozen ices and other products that have citric acids, you won’t worry about corrosion in your carts. They are built to last. Standard equipment on all the serving carts, whether for Italian ices, water ices, or gelato, come with our exclusive digital temperature control so you can dial in exactly the right temperature for your product. Our ice cream dipping carts are listed for both safety and sanitation for outdoor use and for the appropriate intended use.
