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.

    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.

    These 0.75 oz Lavender Dishers work so well behind our bar. We use these to scoop peanut butter into our spiked milkshakes. Peanut butter comes out easily.

    Efficient and attractive!

    These scoopers get the job done. The only downside to these is that there is no clear size markings on the actual scooper. They use this weird number system, and as a business owner i have enough to do= the last thing i want to have to do is memorize their number system and how it matches up with portions.

    from Rainbow Juices Posted on

    If you watched cooking shows or videos of professional chefs, you will see them use dishers. Having never used one before, we could see that it would be nice to have for cookie dough. If you watched Alton Brown's show, you know he has a drawer dedicated to dishers. So we order a couple of the smaller sizes. We had no idea how great it was to have these. Such a time saver. We now have a complete set. Then we bought the essential sizes for my daughter, and finally we have been giving complete sets as wedding gifts (along with other little known kitchen essentials).

    Nice and sturdy. This is the perfect size for cookies -- I think some people here must make enormous cookies, but for me, this is just right. The strong, all-metal construction of the moving parts shows that this tool is built to last and will hold up for years, unlike cheaper versions that eventually and inevitably fall apart.

    I love these dishers. The color coding makes it extremely easy to find the size you need. The dishers are easy to clean as well.

    Cookies bake up in a jiff. This is an Awesome Disher scoop. Besides being Vollrath Jacobs Pride and the quality that goes behind it, these are great for my smaller size cookies. Try It! Experiment and see what works for you. 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.

    The Vollrath Jacob's Pride 0.75 oz. Lavender #40 Disher has a vibrant purple handle that can easily be spotted if misplaced. Vollrath provides another great product at a great price through Webstaurant! This is a great quality product at a more than reasonable price.

    We use these scoops every day and they hold up well to the work load we put on them. They scoop and portion cleanly every time!

    Bought this for our bakery to make our cookie dough truffles. It's nice quality. Haven't had any problems with it and would buy again :)

    from Sweet Spot Minis Posted on

    I've purchased a few different sizes of these now. They're great quality, and hold up well in a rough environment. I use the 0.75 oz for meatballs, but you have to really cram that meat in there for it to stay together. I've also found it useful to not sweep the entire way for meatballs.

    This is a really nice little disher. We use it to portion out our sour cream into our soufflé cups. It works perfect for that.

    Purchased a similar "disher" at a nearby specialty cooking store for double the price and within a couple of uses it was falling apart. After that disaster purchase I purchased most of the Vollrath Jacob's Price dishers (several sizes available) and haven't looked back. They work every time and don't fall apart. They are designed for heavy volume kitchens and can take a beating. I currently use the 0.75 oz size for portioning out cookie dough. If you want professional looking cookies that are consistent in size, then this is the product for you. Skip the more expensive versions at the specialty cooking stores!

    This was perfect for the melon I used it for. I love the lever to get the food out. These are great for portion control as well. They are color coded for capacity. Easy for quick locating what level of measurement is needed.

    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.
