Widely used in the food-service industry for portioning ingredients or servings in consistent amounts, scoops of this type are hard to beat for neatly dispensing sticky foods such as cookie dough or ice cream. The deep, rounded scoop is more reliable than a spoon for quickly doling out uniform quantities while keeping fingers free of mess. As you squeeze the handles, a gear-driven arm sweeps the inner surface closely, releasing the contents.
These are well made from German stainless steel, with comfortable, rounded gripping surfaces, a sturdy spring and a smooth, precise mechanical action. We offer them in four standard sizes; the numbered sizes are used in the food-service industry for estimating purposes, based on the number of scoopfuls per quart of material (approximate diameters listed). A useful aid when making anything from meatballs to muffins – and cookies, of course!
