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.

    I used these scoops for cookie dough. These are solid dishers compared to others of similar price and have lasted longer than other brands I have tried.
    This 2.66 oz Vollrath scoop has been a great product. It is sturdy (heavy duty) and will not break on you when scooping very frozen ice cream.
    We've bought about 3 of these from different vendors, hoping each time they would be better, but these scoopers are low quality and break easily. We've had better experiences with some of the cheapest scoopers on the market over these guys!
    We appreciate your feedback! We’re sorry this is defective. A Customer Solutions Representative will be contacting you soon.
    We like to use these dishers for scooping our condiments as sides. Why do we use these instead of regular ladles or spoons? If you soak these bad boys in water (but change the water often) the food slides easily in and out. Great for sticky food like mac n cheese. Also knowing the measurement of the food you place helps with serving size accuracy for the customer and keep track of your kitchen supply.
    Our favorite disher scoop, this brand is great. Moves good and very easy to release our cookies for dough. Everyone fights to use these scoops!
    we use this scoop on a daily basis, from scooping everything from chocolate pudding to potato salad. we have had this scoop for many years and its still working great.
    Perfect action on this unit. The gears are pretty simple and easy to clean without disassembly. Wing action is fairly tight, but you may find some residue with thicker, warmer butters and creams.
    Vollrath makes great dishers. They are easy to use with one hand. Perfect release each time. They are extremely easy to clean. Perfect for hard use.
    Appetizers anyone! Another great Italian meatball size... This is an Awesome Disher scoop. Besides being Vollrath Jacobs Pride and the quality that goes behind it, these are great for small to medium size meatballs. The scoop will look a little larger but remember, depending on recipe and fat content, meatballs will shrink a bit during cooking. Sure to be a hit on your pasta or appetizer platters. We make a variety of sized meatballs for presentation. Get a few of them to experiment! Try It! 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.
    This is a highly reliable and efficient disher that is perfect for caters. The lever operates easily and it does not rust. While you can place it in the dishwasher, it will turn the color of the the scooper a gray color.
    My go to cookie scoop. Easy use and very durable. Comes in several sizes allowing you to customize the size of your cookies. Happy baking!
    Vollrath is a great brand and the color coding of the scoops helps make it easy to identify when scooping out muffins, cupcakes, etc. They are very durable as well.
    Well made Disher. Just the right size for mansize servings of mashed potatoes. Heavy duty to stand up to constant use on your server line.
    These dishers are of great quality, and well worth the price. The #12 disher is the absolute perfect size for muffins. It's made portioning out batter so much easier!
    Green disher is a smooth piece of work. Release is smooth like silk, and whatever you are scooping will get release from my experience. The color on the handle is nice when making different portions.
    Dishers (scoops) are a requirement when serving 100 people at a meal, 3 times a day. So - this item is literally used 300 times a day! Has held up amazingly well after much use and abuse! Great quality and amazing price!
    I have a number of different sizes of the Vollrath scoops. They are built to last and the scoops clean up nice and easy. Great buy!
    I was using a measuring cup to scoop out dough portions and have always struggled with inaccuracy as the dough will not be coming out clean. Found this scoop with the same portion size and have not had any issues since with too much dough sticking.
    Vollrath's #12 disher is great quality. We use this size to scoop cookie dough and it creates the perfect size. The bright green handle is easy to identify.
    I find this scoop useful for measuring out muffin batter. It is very easy to quickly get consistent amounts of even the stickiest batter to slide out of the scooper.
    perfect for use with the hamburger press. if you have kids meals the portion size is perfect. make sure you get the 4 oz. one also
    This is the perfect cupcake scoop for even and quick traditional sized cupcake portioning. Thumb trigger is the best chez Vollrath. Would definitely buy again.
    The 2.66 disher is another great tool for portioning out rices or any other product. It's green handel makes it easy to use for vegetarian or vegan foods.
    We use these fishers from everything from stuffing, potatoes, ice cream, sour cream, cookies.. And they work great. We have all of the different sizes,
    This item is great for caterers and restaurant businesses and even home use and even parties I give this item an a A ++++ +
    This is a really nice disher, the leaver is a little tough and could wear your thumb out if serving a lot. Great product and well made.
    We use this scoop for Italian ice and it works great. I like that the handles are colored coded so you always now which size scoop you are using!
    These are perfect for scooping a soft frozen product. I serve italian ice with these scoops and they work like they are supposed to. Occasionally if you scoop a lot back to back they actually parts can get an ice build up, but all you need to do is rinse in dipper well. In addition, there is a slot in the scoop..sometime the blade comes out of this slot. Easy fix to slide it right back in. I highly recommend this product for italian ice. Do not purchase if you are scooping ice cream.
    Quality product; durable; packaging was undamaged when shipped. Would recommend for larger products such as muffin or texas size cupcakes for easy pouring into cups
    We use these scoops everyday. We use them for portion control and consistency. During peak hours they help our cooks maintain the correct ingredient amounts while keeping up with the flow of business.
    Very good scoop. It is well made as you would expect from Vollrath. We do have one problem with this scoop. We use it to scoop our chocolate chip cookie dough. Eventually, the thumb lever does break but then again our cookie dough is very thick.
    The green disher holds one 1/3p and is an easy way for me to scoop batter or soft cookie dough. It releases well and is comfortable in my hand.
    Definitely a no brainer purchase. I now have most sizes and these things are great. Sturdy and relatively easy to clean. Main use at home is to fill muffin pans.
    The size #12 disher by Vollrath makes good medium size balls of food. I use it to make meatballs as well as to scoop ice cream and sorbets into the balls. I know for a fact that some Jamba Juice locations use the same #12 Vollrath dishers to scoop the fruits into the blending jars.
