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 tried almost every style and brand of disher / scoop on this site before i ended up discovering that these scoops by vollrath are far and away the best quality. they work super well and hold up to repeated use.
    This scoop has made it much easier when following recipes! It has allowed me to perfectly portion out protein balls and scoops of yogurt for clients meals!
    A workhorse in the kitchen! Comfortable to hold, easy to squeeze. Product releases cleanly, consistently. Gears move smoothly. Color-coding is genius. Worth the money for these!
    Great disher, with an easy-to-squeeze mechanism and comfortable grip. I purchased this at the same time as some no-brand dishers made entirely of metal, and this Vollrath disher is better all-around. The 40# is also a great standard cookie size or mini cupcake size (especially with the Dart 1.25 ounce mini soufflé cups).
    These dishers are perfect for scooping smaller sized cookies. We use them for scooping the cookies for our ice cream sandwiches. They are pretty comfortable on the hands.
    This is a great disher for cookies, it makes each one exactly the same size! The Vollrath brand dishers are easy to operate, clean up well in the dishwasher, and hold up well to use/abuse. Highly recommend!
    The Vollrath Orchid #40 Squeeze Disher Portion Scoop- .72 oz is perfect for proportioning condiments on a salad bar. I would highly recommend this reliable tool for caters. It is very strong and very reliable.
    I'm slowly collection all the different sizes of dishers and after purchasing another (cheaper) brand on this site, I decided to pay a little more for the Vollrath and it's like night and day. The sweeper is right next to the bowl and the squeeze mechanism works flawlessly.
    I have purchased every size scoop from Vollrath 47400 Orchid #40 Squeeze Disher Portion Scoop. they don't break like many other scoopers and even though they are more expensive, they are well worth it!
