Compacta Vario Icona 12 Ice Cream Combo Machine (Brand new)



VariO Icona is the combo machine for gelato which was born on the 30th birthday of our iconic Compacta. The machine is simple and easy to use thanks to its intuitive LCD Touch Screen, and its smart interface designed by our Gelato Chefs. The Icona system allows you to switch from one operation to another and to manage and store personalised recipes, preferences and alerts only with a few taps.

SMART extraction – This configuration allows to set the number of gelato trays to extract. Vario Icona will then vary its speed to allow to change trays while warning with an acoustic signals.

Save your recipes – VariO Icona lets you save recipes in a revolutionary way: create the steps and personalise the alerts so that you can have the smoothest working experience.

VariO Icona is the combo machine for Gelato that allows to complete the whole cycle of gelato production. VariO Icona Hybrid is a two-in-one unit; in the upper part there is the boiler, whereas in the lower part there is the horizontal cylinder of the batch freezer.

In the Icona the characteristics of the VariO System are enhanced by the new upgraded software capabilities and its user-friendliness tailored by our Chefs.
