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.

    Fantastic product at a great price. We tried the cheaper ones and were very disappointed. These are very comfortable and easy to use. Color coded handles are a bonus!

    Great disher, it cleanly releases it's contents better than any other brand I have used. Dispensing with this style is slightly easier than with a thumb release model, but not much. The gear is made of plastic, but despite that it does seem durable and I have had no issues despite washing in the dishwasher.

    Ice cream shop best friend - This scoop is the best we have used for scooping ice cream. Its as sturdy (if not more) than all metal scoops. The design is easy on the hand and the color handle makes scoop ID super easy for new employees. Highly recommended

    These are seriously the best portion scoops you will find. Not only are they really sanitary and easy to clean, but they never break. Spend the extra $ and buy these rather than the metal ones or the thumb press ones!

    from Unami sushi Posted on

    Great to use when baking cupcakes to ensure all of them are the same size and shape. Very sturdy and easy to clean. Love these and will purchase different sizes.

    from Prophet Bakery Posted on

    Finally a disher that can be hung on a hook! I have been looking for one of these for years and had no luck. So glad I finally found what I was looking for. Love that it has no springs or other parts to break off and fall into food.
