Can I use this ice cream scoop with a dipper well?
Yes, we recommend that the temperature of the water in the dipper well be at least 140 degrees Fahrenheit at the beginning of each use. Do not put this scoop in boiling water or heat it to more than 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
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 47143 #16 dark blue disher provides accurate 1/4 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.
This item is designed to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.
This item meets the standards imposed by NSF International, which focuses on public safety, health, and the environment.

These scoops are falling apart after just days of use. At first it was just one which I assumed was a fluke but more and more keep falling apart. I had the first one replaced and that process went well. Well, I ordered 12 and right now, at least 6 are having problems. I had 4 of these scoops originally for about a year and they never gave me a problem so I am not sure if this is just a bad batch or if they changed something about the way they manufacture them. I didn't order the less expensive ones for fear of this exact scenario playing out so I guess 'you get what you pay for' is not accurate in this case.
Thank you for your review, Jennifer! We are sorry this Vollrath 47143 Jacob's Pride #16 Blue Thumb Press Disher - 2 oz. has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
Thank you very much. I wanted to get a scoop that would last for years. Worth the price. Tired of those cheap ones that barely last a year and the coating comes off.
Vollrath is the best brand for food dishers that is offered on Webstaurant. They are durable and the design and materials can't be beat. It would be nice to have free Plus shipping but it's at least discounted. The more you add to your order, the cheaper the shipping becomes per unit so try adding more until you get the right balance between items ordered and shipping cost. Unless you're using your disher for the softest foods in the world like mashed potatoes, don't waste your time or money on other dishers...I promise you won't be happy with them.
These make serving Mac and cheese so much easier! It saves me time being able to get all of it out of the spoon in a quick second. They hold up very well. Unfortunately because of the design, they are hard to clean all the edges and underneath the scraper. I’m not sure that is something that could even be improved, and honestly it’s worth it considering how much time it saves on the job. A nice method for cleaning it that I found is soaking it in hot soapy water first to break everything down. Overall, a good product and I would purchase again
Easy to use, always gets the found out of the disher. We use this one to portion our some of our food. It's easy to clean.
Hi, we bought the Vollrath 47143 Jacob's Pride #16 Blue Thumb Press Disher for our bakery. We have several other sizes of dishers from Vollrath and they all work well.
This cookie scoop is great for making muffins and cupcakes. They always come out even and consistent. Easy to use and wash. I hand wash and dry immediately.
They are great quality and the ergonomics make them comfortable to use for extended periods of time. I bought these to measure portions and pleased with my purchase.
we tried a diferents brands but this is the better we see in a good time strong easy to use y we dont have problem to serve the ice cream
I use this disher in a home kitchen for portioning food for larger groups and to achieve consistent sizes when baking. The disher is well made, NSF listed, and dishwasher safe. It fits my small hands well. The handle can get a little slippery when working with oily dough, but the ridges help with this.
I especially use this disher when writing recipes. The 2-ounce size is very useful, and it lets me quickly count how many servings my recipe will make.
They are well made, but they should not be confused with ice-cream scoops. I would think that using it to scoop ice cream would drastically shorten its lifespan. I’ve used multiple sizes of these dishers for 3 years in my home kitchen for portioning and have yet to have one break. They are a little more expensive than some other versions, but well worth the price for me.
This disher works fairly well. We scoop a ton of heavy cookie dough, so they eventually all break, but the Vollrath dishers hold up as well as any I've found.
i love using these to make my meatballs and crab balls. they make the perfect portion sizes for all parties. i would order again in the future
So far, this portion scoop has worked perfectly. I have this unit and a larger one, the 3.25oz unit. This 2 oz unit is perfect for things like soft ice cream whilst my larger 3.25 oz scoop has been a blessing when positioning muffin batter. The entire gear mechanism is metal and have yet to feel like it would break. Great scoopers!
This is a high quality disher! We use these to scoop our cupcake batter into our liners! I would highly recommend! It is a bit tricky to wash because the batter tends to get stuck between the scoop and release, but you just have to spray it down really well. We don't soak them, but I would imagine that would work just fine.
Beautiful disher--the color makes it easy to find when it is in a drawer with other dishers. The quality is great and it makes easy to dish large amounts neatly and attractively to a plate.
We have had no issues with this scoop. The trigger mechanism is not prone to malfunction or getting stuck. We will purchase this product again.
This disher is the perfect size for dipping out cupcake or muffin batter into standard sized muffin tins. It makes for even cupcakes all around and looks really sharp.

These really are just OK. And the clicker area tends to pinch hands and rip through gloves. We've had so many of these break on us, I've lost count. I much prefer the Zeroll brand scoops...haven't had any of those break yet!
Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
Great scoops or dishers. They last along time without breaking. Comfortable in your hands and easy to scoop. Easy cleanup as well. I reccomend these in all sizes.
The Vollrath dishers are awesome. The color coding makes it easy to find the size needed when cooking. They are one handed release for ease. Easy clean up.
