I cannot tell you how many times I’ve bent and destroyed a perfectly good kitchen spoon while trying to scoop ice cream. Then there are the cheap plastic ice cream scoops that have snapped apart in my hands leaving shards of plastic in my precious ice cream. Then the so-called easy serve scoops that have those little levers that are supposed to force out the ball of ice cream. That broke too.
None of them work and leave me screaming about ice cream (see what I did there?).
The best ice cream scoop from OXO is solid stainless steel and has a slightly pointed tip to dig into that hard ice cream. It has a non-slip grip that works for the left and right handed people in the family. Leave it in clean hot water for a while and that solid piece of stainless will warm up to do an even better job on really sub-zero ice cream.
