Customer Profile: The Knotted Cone

In this Customer Profile, we headed to Appleton, Wisconsin to visit with Kathy Turek of The Knotted Cone Gelato Company.

Inspired by a trip to Europe, Kathy decided Gelato might have a unique place of its own in the dairy state. Before long she headed back to Italy to study the art and production of the tasty treat and since returning has been bringing the high-quality treat and happy taste buds to many from around the area.

While The Knotted Cone may be sold out of a food truck, the gelato is carefully made in Kathy’s lab with specialized industrial food service equipment that requires three-phase power to operate.

Kathy’s lab is located where three-phase power is not so when she needed an affordable solution to make her dream a reality, American Rotary was able to help.

Here are a few takes of our time with The Knotted Cone.

The Difference Between Gelato and Ice Cream:

All of American Rotary phase converters have been designed to provide the precision output voltage needed for voltage sensitive applications such as pizza ovens, regular ovens, rotisseries and ice cream machines. This type of quality performance is ideal for Hobart mixers, wine presses, coffee grinders and other types of food processing machines.

    hi guys,about 6 months ago i ordered a 3 hp rotary phase converter from you. the very next day one of you guys called me and asked me what i planned to use it on,i said on a 3 hp meat cutting bandsaw , i was advised to go to the larger. having 40 years experience in the sawmill buisness , with all the motors and switchgear involved ,i thought i had quite a bit of experience . i decided this 3 hp unit was big enough. i just wanted to pass along to other customers that it is big enough. i checked amp loads under a load, fine, this saw is cycled on and off many times a day, perfect. when i realized that i needed a phase converter, i googled how to make one , i couldnt touch it for the price you offered. very pleased,already told 8 others about this.i will definitly be looking you up the next time i need one, thank you very much!
