Bubble Tea Machines Certifications
CE, CUL & NSF
When buying a bubble tea machine for your business you want to make sure that you’re getting a high quality machine. Buying a cheap knockoff machine from Amazon or eBay might work for a few months but when it breaks down in the middle of your rush hour you’ll regret trying to save a few bucks in the beginning.
Bubble Tea was invented in Taiwan and the most reliable machines come from Taiwan. Beyond the quality of the bubble tea machines is the certification system.
CE Certification is internationally recognized and is the standard certification system in the European Union. Having a CE certified machine means that it has passed certain safety tests and meets specific electrical guidelines.
UL Certification or CUL is the American and Canadian equivalent to CE Certification. It is required by certain city ordinances to pass health exams, etc. Our UL Machines are double Certified for the US and Canada (CUL).
UL EPH (NSF Equivalent) The UL EPH Mark is used for products complying with ANSI/NSF standards and other food equipment hygiene codes and requirements.
We have 3 Models to Choose From:
How to Choose Between CE, UL and NSF Certification?
While CE, CUL and UL EPH (NSF) Certifications are internationally recognized and mean that your machine is in safe working order, the difference will depend on your specific requirements.
The certification process costs money (the manufacturer has the pay to get their machines certified by the NSF, UL or CE organization). This cost is then passed onto the consumer and NSF/UL usually costs more than CE. This is why an NSF or UL EPH Certified Machine will generally costs a little bit more than a CE equivalent.
All of our machines are made safe and virtually identical, the main difference is the certification. All of our basic models have CE Certification and this is the a cheaper option than UL so if you’re specific city health exams do not require UL or NSF, then it makes sense to buy a CE machine.
But if your city requires a CUL Certified or UL EPH (NSF) Machine then paying the extra money to get the proper certification now will save you a lot of time and headache down the road. Once a machine has been maufactured, the Certification cannot be changed. so it’s important to check with your specific city guidelines to see what machine you will need.
