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 47147 #40 lavender disher provides accurate 1 2/3 tbs. 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.

    size Cookies scoop perfect meatballs disher Great made portion easy

    I love this scoop!! I use this for all my cookies and for icing and ice cream as well. I also like to buy it as a gift for people because it's so handy and much more durable than what you can buy through other retailers. I've had mine for around 5 years with no problems!

    Nice quality that's made to last! Exceptional cost savings from our usual supplier and as always, ships immediately upon ordering. All backed by wonderful customer service! Thank you

    This is the only scoop I use for portioning out my cupcake batter for my MINI cupcakes. They come out the same size and perfect every time!

    from Jennie's Cake Creations Posted on

    After searching for a portion scoop that wouldn't rust and break, I finally decided to buy a commercial tool. I bought two sizes of the Vollrath scoops. This was a great choice and I have been more than happy with the performance of this scoop. Even as a left-hander, I find this scoop easy to use (have to use middle finger in the left hand) and it remains comfortable after extended use. Overall I am very satisfied with this product, would buy again.

    These are perfect size when we form our truffles. They are easy and pretty sturdy. We bought three and out of that 2 are still working very well- would recommend.

    from Hardcore Sweet Posted on

    Great Design, handle is comfortable and the mechanism is sturdy but not a strain to use. Perfect size for cookies, not bite size but not too big. They clean up very easy.

    Posted on

    These things last forever! I bought a few a few years back and now need more, not because they are getting bad, just more business. Love these items.

    from Temecula Catering Posted on

    This Vollrath disher works great for cookies as it provides a good sized cookie. Very fast and easy to use. Also easy to clean after the job is done.

    We use this scooper for our chocolate chip cookies. We use it daily and we use it a lot. It's very easy to clean and works great

    from Daniela's Delectables LLC Posted on

    Best quality scoop I have ever used! Great for cookies, meatballs, cupcake batter, etc. These scoops will last longer than me! Every kitchen should have these in various sizes.

    I can't live without Vollrath dishers. I used to buy the cheap ones in baking supply sections at craft stores, only to have the metal blade bend with use. A true workhorse, this scoop stands up well to stiff cookie dough and cleans up nicely in the dishwasher.

    The .75 oz. scoop is the perfect size for mini muffins and cupcakes. It's so much cleaner to use and gives a consistent muffin/cupcake each time!

    This disher makes what I consider to be the perfect sized meatballs. My husband isn't quite as savvy in the kitchen but loves to make beer braised meatballs. He always complains that his meatballs are never as "pretty" as mine, so I tell him to use the purple scoop and he now produces the uniform results he desires. I also use this disher at work for scooping coconut macaroons, which makes a nice sized cookie that we dip the bottom in chocolate.

    from Contata Voluptates Posted on

    Purchased this size dishes for sour cream and butter on baked potatoes. We like this size as it is small and keeps a 1 oz. portion under control as the staff tends to overscoop.

    from Barbecue Blast Inc. Posted on

    Perfect size portion scoop for cookies. I also have a black handled portion scoop and I bought this one because it is a little bit smaller for the more rich cookies that I like to make. Its sturdy and washes up just fine in the dishwasher. When I leave reviews for a cookie recipe on recipe websites I always mention that a commercial quality portion scoop is great for making even sized cookies. You could also use this as a melon baller.

    I really do love Vollrath dishers. They make portion control a breeze. The "purple scoop" is 3/4 oz. and is the perfect size for mini muffins, cupcakes and cookies. Every kitchen should have a few of these. Highly recommended!

    i actually have bought number 30 for mini cupcakes but now i use that size for scooping cookies this is the perfect size for mini cupcakes and well made love these scoopers

    from kedbys kreations & party rental Posted on

    These serve so many function in our kitchen. You can portion smaller batch items of or use for small scoops of Ice cream. Great size for truffles.

    If you're looking to make a bunch of meatballs, this is the disher for you! Makes nice uniform Italian meatballs, about 1 ounce. Buying all the sizes.

    from nitas place Posted on

    Perfect for cookie dough scooping. Cookies always are the same size when using this scoop. Sturdy with no plastic parts to break or wear out. This size is a baking essential.

    from Sugarpie Bakery & Cafe Posted on

    For years we portioned out meatballs with a spoon and rolled them in our hands. This disher makes a great meatball. By putting one glove on, the excess can be smoothed off. 100 meatballs can be made very quickly!

    The Vollorath #40 disher is quality made, well worth the price and is the perfect size for making cookies or dropping perfect size hushpuppies into the fryer.

    Posted on

    This is my cookie-dough disher. There are many like it, but this is the small purple-handled one that's built to last. You can't go wrong with Vollrath products. These dishers are well made and The Webstaurant Store has the BEST price I could find anywhere (when you include all shipping and whatnot)

    Posted on

    This disher is the perfect size for making small cookies or for forming cake pop. Very comfortable to hold and has a smooth scoop mechanism.

    from A Dash of Delicious Posted on

    Really good quality disher. It's the perfect size for meatballs, hushpuppies and even smaller cookies. Heavy duty construction and it's heavier than similar ones I've seen in the kitchen shops.

    from Mahogany Roasters Posted on

    This is an excellent color-coded lavender disher that is made by Vollrath. All moving parts work smooth and you feel that this disher is well-made when you use it. I personally use it to scoop and portion the tuna salad for the sandwich rolls.
