Customer questions about this product

What is the difference between a disher and an ice cream scoop?
Dishers are designed to control servings of soft foods, such as mashed potatoes, applesauce, or steamed vegetables. Although these are not meant for harder foods, such as ice cream, they are versatile tools that can be used for portion control in both prep and service applications. Ice cream scoops offer the durability necessary to scoop hard, frozen foods, such as ice cream. Both are traditionally sized by the number of scoops per quart that they can produce; however, they may also be sized by the number of ounces they hold. Dishers feature an easy-to-operate thumb press or squeeze-handle design, complete with a quick-release component that ensures no food is unintentionally left behind in the scoop. Ice cream scoops on the other hand, do not feature any movable components.

Perfect for all of your kitchen's heavy duty serving and cooking needs, this Vollrath Jacob's Pride 47140 gray disher provides accurate 1/2 cup portions of hot or cold foods in your restaurant, cafeteria, or bakery! The color-coded handle helps ensure easy size identification when selecting your desired serving amount of mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables, yogurt, cookie dough, and other soft foods.

The 18-8 stainless steel bowl and components prevent corrosion for added longevity in a high volume environment. An extended, grooved handle provides a secure grip for comfortable, all-day use, and the one-piece construction makes cleaning easy and improves durability. This seamless design prevents the build-up of food and bacteria residue in cracks and crevices to save you the time and effort of hand scrubbing and scouring your disher.

    Vollrath has always been one of my favorite commercial small wares companies. No matter the product, they are always built to last. These scoops are no different. They perform well every time.

    from The Maple Parlor Posted on

    Great Ice cream scoop. It is well built and fairly cheep too. This is great for quickly and consistently plating equal portions of any food. I have used this scoop on everything from ice cream, cookie dough, beans, and more. The thumb trigger makes sure all of the food you scooped ends up on the plate.

    this item is great because you can scoop up warm or hot foods and Serving your costumers and your family. PS do not used this item for ice cream

    from Zackey joe's Posted on

    We use these scoops for everything! Portioning cookies, scooping chicken salad & tuna salad. They were purchased to replace some cheaper scoops & the extra price is well worth it! The quality is great!

    I have seen these scoops used on many baking blogs and decided to give the Vollrath brand a try so I bought a few different sizes. Very well made, easy to use and clean up in a snap. Perfect for making cookies, cupcakes and even meatballs. I love them and would highly recommend them.

    Perfect portion control. This is a perfect disher I often use it for mash potatoes or macroni salad, rice the list goes on. But it is a high quality item

    Posted on

    Good product and size. Very sturdy and easier to clean than some scoops I have owned. Works perfect for mashed potatoes and for portion control.

    from D'Vine Eatery LLC Posted on

    We use this disher the most. 4 oz is so perfect for sides and has really helped us to stay consistent and keep food costs down. Everyone should use these

    High quality scoops for the best price on the internet. They are dropped occasionally, washed daily, and used all day for portioning and they are still in great condition. Haven't had one break.

    Very happy with these scoops. I bought them to replace the Tablecraft ones I had in the same color and they worked perfectly. Great for scooping muffin batter for a solid 4 oz. portion.

    Posted on

    very good brand and very good price, you can use them with anything specially for things that stick easy to clean and easy to use.

    from ERA Posted on

    I was afraid of the quality of this when I ordered it. After all in kitchen stores you easily pay twice as much. But once I used it I knew I would do all my ordering from you guys

    Super functional everyday portion scoop. We use it to scoop cookie dough and it performs great all the time. Also, it cleans pretty easily in the dishwasher, a nice plus.

    from Mudhouse, LLC Posted on

    To me, the Jacob's Pride portion scoops are top of the line! I've used them in multiple food establishments and have yet to see one break down. We use this size mostly for larger muffins and certain kinds of dough.

    from Rainbow Bakery Posted on

    Great item for easy to serve items, not the choice for frozen items like rock hard ice cream. but great portion control on the fly easy to recognize size with handle color

    Posted on

    These portion control dishers are great for just about anything. From scooping out cookie dough, scooping mashed potatoes, jello, etc, etc...the possibilities are endless. The best thing is they come in a wide variety of sizes and they are all color coded to the Vollrath standard coding system, which makes remembering portion sizes across their product line easier, and easier.
