The Zeroll Co. has been manufacturing ice cream scoops since 1935, offering a patented design that takes the hard work out of scooping and increases profits using portion management.

Fluid-Filled Handle

The handle of this scoop contains a unique, heat-conductive fluid that warms up from the heat of the user's hand. When held, the scoop becomes warmer and is able to move through even the hardest of ice creams with ease. This feature lets you scoop more quickly to serve your customers right away!

More Volume

All Zeroll ice cream scoops are designed to roll ice cream with minimum compression, which means that the product is not compacted into a hard ball. Instead, the ice cream is rolled or folded into the scoop with small pockets of air inside. This gives you up to 20% more scoops of ice cream per gallon.

Aluminum Alloy

With its innovative aluminum alloy construction, this Zeroll scoop is a long-lasting investment for any facility that serves ice cream, frozen yogurt, or sorbet.

Color Coded

Easily identify the scoop you need! The blue cap on the end of the handle represents a #12 3 oz. scoop.

Customer Q&AAsk a Question

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.

cream ice scoop scoops love perfect size bought great handle

Customer Reviews


This aluminum ice cream scoop is the best I have bought so far when it comes to ice cream scoopers. It does the job well and is made with quality.

Aaron K. on 05/29/2019

We bought the blue bottomed one and it’s a little larger than the old scoop we were replacing. The “tip” of it is certainly sharp, I actually cut myself on it while hand washing. I didn’t expect to have to be careful while washing an ice cream scoop, but I have been since! So obviously it cuts through the ice cream well! We have been using it for a month or two now. We have not put it in the dishwasher and don’t plan to. We expect it to last for many years.

Thornton A. on 03/19/2019

After years of buying countless ice cream scoops I have finally found the best and this is it. They balls it produces are perfect every time and they are perfect size too. Do not run them through the dishwasher or you'll take the finish off. I will buy again if needed.

Wesley K. from Country Club on 08/14/2018

These Zillow ice cream cone sculptures on the best I mean you're touching I get warm a slide no sticking to nothing guarantee you you guys will love these you will never want another ice cream scooper

Marcus G. from A.G.L Ice Cream on 05/30/2018

I bought aluminum ice cream scoop as we go through a lot of ice cream and the scoops I was using got pitted up. I find that this scoop its quite curved and somewhat hard to use.

David A. from The Homestead on 01/08/2018

We love love these zeroll #12 ice cream scoops. We like the fact that they warm up well if you run them under hot water which makes it easy to scoop some of the harder ice cream flavors.

Lane C. from Open Range Coffee & Cafe on 12/07/2017

Good quality and we use these for making round balls to decorate our gelato and sorbetto. Makes fast work and makes the gelato look good

Tracy B. from Life In The Slow Lane LLC. on 10/31/2017

This is very sturdy and easily scoops ice cream without hurting your hands. It scoops in scoops, not in pieces. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great ice cream scooper.

Sara H. on 08/18/2017

These will last a life time. We are still using some that are 15+ years old that have gone through hundreds of thousands of scoops of ice cream and thousands of washes. The size of the handle is just right for all hand sizes. If you need a scoop for an ice cream shop then this is it. Don't go cheap.

Andrew on 06/21/2017

I was looking for a nice ice cream scoop for home use and I found it here! This is the perfect size, very durable and commercial quality. Do not put this in the dishwasher though, while it doesn't damage the product, it will turn your aluminum finish dark gray.

Mary S. on 02/05/2017

The zeroll aluminum ice cream scoop is an amazing product. It does its job with ease and is one of the easiest utensils to clean.

Jason D. from MOGO KOREAN FUSION TACOS on 09/29/2016

Zeroll ice cream scoops are really well made. We use this particlar size for a 4oz cup. One scoop will fill the cup perfectly. Highly recomended!!

Janelle W. from LITTLE GEM BELGIAN WAFFLES LLC on 09/03/2016

I love simple, durably made things, that work well, and are efficient. This ice cream scoop meets that standard. It is perfect! It works well each and every time, and it creates uniform rolled scoops of ice cream. It is easily hand washed, and will last for years making this an economical purchase.

Russell H. from Russ' Sub Shack on 05/04/2016

Love everything about this scoop. It does exactly what it's supposed to do, and on top of that, it makes every ice cream scoop look perfect. The only down side to it is that it works so well, that when I hold ice cream in the scoop for a long period of time, the ice cream melts. So I have to place the ice cream onto the cone or cup quickly. But that just means it's doing its job. Love this scoop! A must-have for every ice cream shop owner!

Deborah H. on 04/08/2016

These scoops are great for their ice cream scooping purposes, but don't hold up well. We have to have them submerged in running water during open hours, and they pitted after a few months.

Trish M. on 01/27/2016

Thank you for your review! We think these scoops may have been defective. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you about this shortly.

I love the size of this scoop for hard ice cream. It is just the right size for kiddie cones. We will definitely purchase these again.

Jean M. on 11/16/2014

I had a ice cream scoop that I purchased years ago. It still works well but is showing its age. I decided to purchase the Zeroll and I was not disappointed.

Charles W. on 09/18/2014

We are in our second year of a mobile ice cream truck. Last year we had purchased a cheaper similar product. Now that we have purchased some of these, I wish we would have just broke down and bought them right away last year. These are great! Very sturdy, they work excellent in making a perfect scoop of ice cream, even the hardest ice cream just glides onto the scoops. Highly recommend! Well worth the price!

Christopher B. from KTC's Brain Freeze on 05/04/2014

The very best ice cream scoop ever. I love how perfect it scoops every time. I just rinse it off with warm water to clean. The heating fluid in handle might deactivate, with too hot water.

Angie H. on 12/18/2013

Thank you for your review! This is a great tip. These ice cream scoops should be hand-washed with a non-abrasive cleaner, rinsed with water and towel-dried. These scoops cannot be exposed to temperatures over 140 degrees Fahrenheit and are therefore not dishwasher-safe.

WebstaurantStore Customer Solutions

really like this ice cream scoop. it can handle any kind of ice cream. love that it can warm up from the heat of your hand.

Elizabeth H. on 10/07/2012

what a super great ice cream scoop. with no handle to push there is nothing to worry about breaking, and it scoops ice cream with ease.

Randall H. from  Family Restaurant on 04/16/2012

I bought a 1939 Zeroll at an antique sale and have been sold ever since. If you've been struggling with cold ice cream sticking to your server/ice cream scoop, then this is "THE SOLUTION". Once you try it, you'll never use another.

Michael D. from Accu-Noise Inc. on 01/10/2012

This ice cream scooper is great. I've used others that would break within weeks. I've been using this one faithfully for well over a year and it has never let me down.

Kim Z. from Cold Stone Creamery on 01/12/2011

I like having several of all different sizes available; some for kiddie scoops, larger for filling pint containers quickly. This is a good brand, do not corrode and easily cleaned and sterilized.

Dawn O. from Frozen Alchemy on 05/09/2010
