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.

    The measurements are exact which is great for keeping the food inventory on point. We like to use these for scooping sides onto or plates like mashed potatoes.

    I got this disher to potentially use to portion out cookies, but I must say that it is massive! Quality is good and I've had no issues.

    Great price, great product. We used this to serve rice at our annual Greek Festival. It was the perfect size and really helped with portion control.

    from St Anne Orthodox Church Posted on

    This Disher is awesome and HUGE! It is perfect for scooping out cupcake or muffin batter into jumbo sized pans. The quality is nice and sturdy and can be used for thin and thick batters. It’s great to have a product that makes my cupcakes look uniform and professional.

    These vollrath dishers are great. The one hand release makes them easy to use. Perfect portion each time. They are extremely easy to clean too.

    Great quality for the price point. Works exactly as described. Design seems to be very sturdy. Will be buying more of these in the future as needed.

    from DiFilippo's Pizza Posted on

    This is perfect to scoop rice. Just have to wet it so it is not sticky. I get the smaller ones for small scoop. Buying extra as spare.

    I love these dishers! I use them for measuring out cake unto the cake pans as well as measuring out my shortening. They are smooth and easy to push.

    from Small and Simple confections Posted on

    MEATBALLS or BURGER PATTIES ANYONE? This is an Awesome Disher scoop. Besides being Vollrath Jacobs Pride and the quality that goes behind it, these are great for MEATBALLS. A generous size sure to be a hit on your pasta platter or impressive sandwiches.. Try It! Now remember, depending on ingredients and fat content some shrinkage will occur with meatballs and burgers. Experiment with different sizes. I own the whole line. I use them for portion control in serving and baking. No more guessing when you use these scoops. Consistency every time. You can't beat the prices and quality of what you get when you shop Vollrath and Webstaurant Store. Seriously. Note: These are disher scoops not really made for hard hard ice cream.

    from Paul S. Posted on

    The Vollrath Jacob's Pride 4 oz. Gray #8 Disher is a great disher for scooping proportionate sized scoops of mashed potatoes, macaroni and potato salad and many more. The lever discharges the food easily and the scooper is a necessity for commercial kitchens.

    I bought this portion measuring scoop for nuts. When we are serving nuts in cafe we use this vollrath disher, it does the job perfectly

    Disher, measuring scoop

    Although this disher isn't meant for ice cream, we use it to scoop vegan ice cream and found it has out performed all the ice cream scoops we've purchased. It's extremely durable and the handle is comfortable to hold.

    You can never go wrong when it's Vollrath. We use this fisher for portioning orders of potato salad. Never any jams and it cleans easily. No complaints here.

    Perfect fisher for portion control of potato salad!

    Gray disher is a wonderful tool for cookie dough, ice cream, or whatever you need portions for. The release is very smooth and reliable. I would have them just because..

    This Vollrath scoop is of very nice construction. its easy to clean and very strong. Buy this one over a cheaper version, you will not be disappointed.

    from The Homestead Posted on

    These are the scoops we used at a bakery I used to work at and they're great! We always used them to dip out icing, fruit salad, pasta salad, pretty much anything! In the 4 years I worked there I never had any trouble with any of them and they were several years old when I started!

    from Daniel C Tolner Posted on

    Vollrath dishers are the best in terms of quality and durability. This is the perfect size for carb servings (rice, potatoes, etc.). I appreciate that they are easily cleaned in the dishwasher and that the thumb press is mechanism is smooth and never gets stuck.
