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 green cap on the end of the handle represents a #16 2.5 oz. scoop.

Customer Q&AAsk a Question

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.
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.

These Zeroll #16 Aluminum Ice Cream Scoops are great quality. They are a little more expensive because they are a name brand. I will most likely stay with the cheaper versions, but these work as intended.

Shane M. on 10/06/2020

We have three scoops for a shop with two scoopers, they work perfect for a set size scooping. We leave them in the dipper well all day while in use and hand wash after use.

Amy B. on 06/10/2019

I have tried many other brand ice cream scoopers, but the Zeroll brand ones are hands down the best. They cut through the ice cream perfectly making a nice non stick ball.

Jason K. from Extreme Tan, Llc on 04/23/2019

A great ice cream scoop. We needed a new scoop and instead of buying whatever was in stock at the local store, I decided to do some research. I thought the price was ridiculous and you aren't supposed to put it in the dishwasher so that makes this an high-maintenance tool. Nonetheless, scooping ice cream is a cinch.

Thornton A. on 03/19/2019

The perfect ice cream scoop, #16 aluminum hand scoop. Very strong and gets through even when your ice cream us to cold. Scoops come out with no effort at all.

Indri K. on 02/03/2019

After much research, Zeroll was found to be the highest rated scooper between all blogs and sites. They were right on point, this work great! We use them for Ice Cream and have had zero issues

Mareka T. from I Scream Sandwich Co. on 06/04/2018

zeroll makes the best ice cream scoops period. ice cream scoops are like mousetraps, there are probably thousands of designs and patents, some very complicated. we have tried many and always try the new miracle scoopers but always come back to zeroll.

Jeff K. from Sebring Soda & Ice Cream Works on 01/13/2018

This is the perfect ice cream scoop. You get a perfectly round scoop with this. We use it for our single and double size scoops.

Baljit D. on 01/07/2018

If you need an efficient ice cream scooper that is sturdy and will last without spending a lot of money, this is the best one on the market!

Sara H. on 08/20/2017

These are the best scoopers on the market. They make rock hard ice cream a breeze to serve. The price on this site is well below anywhere else. Just buy them

Meryl H. from CSSC on 11/18/2016

Very well-made and sturdy! I think this scoop will last a lifetime! We use this everyday in our business, and it is accurate and easy to hold!

Joyce V. from Heavenly Hershey's Ice Cream on 02/27/2016

This scoop is perfect for making Sundaes. Its makes scooping to easy! Its worth the extra cost and easy on your wrist too. The size is perfect too.

Janese A. from Pieces Of Treats on 09/10/2015

Good quality scoopers. I prefer these to the black Zerolon versions. After a year of heavy use they do tend to wear out and need to be replaced.

Benjamin L. on 08/27/2015

These are perfect for ice cream scooping. The handles warm with your grip and it makes scooping ice cream a breeze. I would never consider buying any other brand or model. These are what you need if you scoop frozen product.

Josh N. from Blue Oasis Italian Ice And Ice Cream on 02/26/2015

If you love ice cream but are tired of struggling when serving, I highly recommend this scoop. The handle contains a special oil inside that takes the warmth from your hand and spreads it to the metal in the scoop. This heating feature and allows for easier serving of ice cream. WARNING: This product is not dishwasher safe due to the metal used in the product.

Vicki J. from Haze Ice Cream on 11/17/2014

Nice little ice cream scoop which make scooping ice cream so simple and easy. We will definately purchase two more because the price is unbeatable!

Kaywana S. from Cone Zone on 07/04/2014

I really like this Ice Cream Scoop! It lets the Ice cream slide off very easy .I love the Size of it because it feels good when held.Great buy!

Denishia W. on 02/13/2014

This ice cream scooper works great! I like it so much that I ordered two of them with the green end, #1016, for two different locations. They seem to be the perfect size for both an ice cream scoop in a bowl and for making cones. Remember, you should hand wash only. Never put them in the dishwasher. Knowing this, they will serve you well. Just hold the scooper in your hand for a moment, scoop on an angle, and enjoy!

David J. on 11/21/2013

This scoop is definitely my favorite type to use when serving ice creams. once dipped in a bit of hot water, it can tackle any kind of frozen treat. the open sides are great for getting a nice, airy scoop.

Alessia D. on 04/07/2013

A little hot water and this aluminum ice cream scoop will all you to serve up the coldest ice cream in an attractive manner each and every time!!!
