Pros: Design, Durability, Material Quality, Construction
best design yet for hard ice cream
this ice cream scoop works great, even with hard ice cream. the construction & design are far better than the OXO. the handle is made of a hard plastic with a thin rubberized coating which give an excellent grip with no flex at all (unlike the oxo). the scoop itself is a Stainless stamping that's 1/16" thick on the edges and 1/8" thick at the tang. you would need 2lb hammer to bend the scoop. the fact that the scoop is a shallow bowl, means you can push straight down on the ice cream using your body weight to cut through the ice cream, while scoops with a rounder bowl limit you to just your arm strength. the only weakness of this scoop is that it doesn't make pretty round balls of ice cream for cones.
