Customer Reviews

Release mechanism does not hold upThis scoop has a little gear-driven mechanism to release the ice cream from the scoop. Within two uses this mechanism jammed. At first you could still get it to work by pushing the little hemispherical blade back below the edge of the scoop and then the thumb button would work again. But that didn't work for long and now this no longer functions at all.As an ice cream scoop it scoops ice cream. But you'll need a spoon to get that ice cream out of it because the mechanism is of poor quality. Don't bother with this item.1Great Ice Cream ScoopAbout 55 years ago I bought an ice cream scoop similar to this one for my father. The bowl was cast aluminum and the handle was red, but otherwise the two scoops are pretty much identical. Recently the heirloom scoop disappeared, so I ordered this one, and it's actually better, mainly because of the stainless steel scoop, which is thinner and less prone to sticking. The release action is smooth and cleanly sweeps the bowl. Still miss my dad's scoop, but I'm hoping this one will have a similarly long heritage.5Average.This works great for baking, but not well for ice cream! I've used it for both. It works great for portioning out baked goods like cupcakes, muffins, or even cookie dough. Sadly though, it doesn't work well with ice cream. I've tried it several times with ice cream and every time the ice cream gets stuck in the scoop and it doesn't come out. The scraper fails miserably even after several button presses.Overall I've given it 3 stars because it works well in some areas but fails miserably in others. I was hoping to get a multipurpose all-in-one tool with this that would work for all areas I needed it, but sadly it was not that tool - I'll have to keep looking!3Buyer beware it may be a Chinese knockoff The product is labeled as a vollrath 4oz disher. It is a Chinese knockoff by the Thunder Group. Vollrath are all made in the USA. 1Action feels smooth and non-fatiguing (at least for my thumb). It produces even well formed half rounds for me every time.I pressed against the palm of my hand to form the portions shown in the pictures, and one could produce "balls" by rounding the half rounds.I also own and use the purple handle # 40 and have had similar excellent results.I appreciate that these dishers are made in the USA and NSF approved.I can tell that they are made for the "food service - restaurant" industry by the solid construction and feel.Note; a sticky or loose dough will tend to cause any disher to under perform. Ways to remedy this include:- refrigerating the dough to stiffen it- dipping the disher in warm water in between dispensing- coating the disher bowl with; butter, ghee, coconut oil, shortening, nonstick spray, etc. 5Robustly made I purchased this to replace a disher with the caliper type handle - you squeeze both handles together and cause the sweeper to rotate. That old disher failed after a just a few years because the axle that rotates and moves the sweeper is only pressure fit into the gear, and it came loose and so it no longer works. It was an expensive disher (Farberware), more than twice what I paid for this one.This disher has a thumb lever that rotates the axle, and I am very happy to see that the gear, axle, and sweeper are one piece of steel. The axle is also a much larger diameter than the old one (more than double). Every part of this disher is much more robust than the old one. (The picture is deceptive - it looks kinda flimsy, but it is not.) So I expect to scoop a lot of cookies with this one for many years to come.I am also very happy to see that this disher was made in the USA, and it is stamped Vollrath. 5Excellent choice for a prolific cookie baker!! I bake professionally and this size is my 'go to' for cookies. Slightly smaller than what you might want in a retail cookie, but that's the size I need. When I am scooping cookies for home or parties, or gifts, I fill the scoop a little under level for a perfectly acceptable-sized cookie that is not too huge or skimpy.I bought this months ago and waited to review, to see how it held up. It..is..PERFECT for my needs. Heavy-duty. I used this scoop at my job from mid-May through mid-October, either every day (scooping a minimum of 60 cookies) or every other day. Sent it through the industrial dishwasher without a problem. At home, I wash it in hot sudsy water by hand. You do need to move the ratchet/scooper part a couple times to make sure to get the cookie dough out.This handled the stiffest cookie doughs, filled with chips and nuts, no problem.at a little over $14.00 this might seem pricey for a single item but I expect it to last for years. A great investment. I haven't used the old-fashioned 'scoop up dough with a regular table spoon and scrape off with another spoon' method for 30 years, when you get used to a ratcheting cookie scoop, you depend on the speed and uniformity. I highly recommend this Volrath #40 cookie scoop. 5Canned Dog Food portions for small dogsCanned dog food is a pain to measure out when you are trying to keep your pooch on a diet. This is the answer. Do the math and get the right size for your dog's servings. Scoop the food out of the can, level it off with a knife and eject the half-round portions into Tupperware style container. Several feedings worth, ready to go with no mess and perfect portion control. Works great for our Yorkie.5Precise 2oz scoop for dishing up cookie batterWhen we cook, we try to get the recipe perfected and precisely repeatable. Believe it or not, that even extends to the size of the perfect cooking (which plays a role in cooking time, etc). So, to get consistently same size cookies, we decided that 2oz of batter makes the proper size "big cookie" we were looking for. This scoop gathers between 2.0-2.1 oz of batter every time - yes, we weighed it out to verify. Now that we know it's reliable, we can scoop away and get precisely sized cookies that cook evenly in the batch.5So I bought this because it got great reviews, but unfortunately on my second use the ...So I bought this because it got great reviews, but unfortunately on my second use the spring snapped and the part that ejects the ice cream won t move. Tried putting it back together but it won t snap in. I also bought the 4 oz. scooper by the same company crossing my fingers that doesn t break as well.1Great for large cookies!This is a great portioner. It s sturdy, strong, performs well, and has a good solid feel in the hand. I have only owned the #16 for a couple months, but I've owned a #40 for two years and it has held up very well. Despite the mechanism, it is not difficult to clean: just press down on the handle to clean beneath the moving arc, then put it through the dishwasher.The #16 makes large, attractive, bakery-sized cookies that are about 3 to 4 inches in diameter, with most in the 3.5 inch range. I find this to be a great size for bake sales, but rather too large for regular household use. For cookies we re going to eat at home, I use the Vollrath #40 (3/4 ounce) which makes cookies in the 2.5 inch range (give or take half an inch).My only complaint about the Vollrath scoop is that they don t make a left-handed version. This is a strongly right-handed tool. I am left-handed and I usually hold this scoop in my left hand, scoop the food, and then reach up at an angle with my index and middle fingers to pull down on the lever to release the food. This is awkward. The angle I have to hold it at means that the power sweep of the arc is from the bottom of the scoop to the top, rather than top to bottom, which makes it a little more difficult to free sticky substances. I sometimes switch the tool to my right hand for the release, which makes for an easier release but feels more awkward to me as my right hand is weaker and less accurate than my left one. But these are small issues to me compared with the high quality and performance of this scoop.5Bad compared to previous Vollrath disherI previously purchased the #40 Vollrath disher that operates very smoothly. Last week I ordered the #16. The first #16 I received had terrible action: The gears crashed into the slots; there was a good deal of resistance in the thumb lever; and the spring back lever stuck in several spots every time.I returned the first #16. Its replacement was hardly better. Reading reviews, I now see an increase in complaints like mine over the last year, so I decided It wasn't going to get any better if I exchanged another time.I studied this poor quality more recently built downgrade from my previous excellent smoothly operating #40 and found several changes. First, the stamped lettering on the wedge shaped slotted plate is more deeply impressed with more crude typography. The NSF stamp on the #16 thumb press is an outline font, where the #40's NSF stamp is not. The edges of the gear and gear slots on the #16 were rougher compared to the #40. Unlike the #40, the #16 semi-circular bowl scraper pressed against the inside bowl next to the pivot holes, causing resistance and scraping against the bowl.Using a file, I smoothed the areas of contact between the gear and slots. I also disengaged the tightly sprung bowl scraper on one end and carefully bent its ends together to shorten the distance (reduce pressure) between the ends, then slipped the free end back into its hole. With very fine emery paper, I smoothed fine gouges and burrs in the bowl which developed from previously heavy scraper contact. Together, these repairs smoothed the action between badly built parts. This #16 now produces the same pleasing action as my #40 disher.How many other customers would take this much trouble to fix Vollrath's carelessly manufactured (formerly excellent) disher?! I am very disappointed in Vollrath. This is a betrayal in trust -- earned over time -- to those who want to buy USA made products. At a time when American manufacturing wants to make a comeback, selling downgraded poor quality products using old customer satisfaction reviews is unethical. Amazon should remove past reviews if a company downgrades their manufacture quality. But most of all, shame on Vollrath!1Strong, well-made scoop for cookie dough, mini-muffins, and ice cream (Vollrath #40) This is a great portioner. I use it for ice cream, cookie dough, muffin batter, and meatballs, and it works great.It s sturdy and strong and performs well, and has a good solid feel in the hand. I ve had it for two years, use it several times a week, and have had no trouble with it. Despite the mechanism, it is not difficult to clean: just press down on the handle to clean beneath the moving arc, and then put it through the dishwasher.Regarding the size, the #40 makes 3/4 ounce scoops which are about 1.5 inches in diameter, a little smaller than a ping-pong ball. Cookies made with this scoop usually come out of the oven about 2.5 inches in diameter, give or take half an inch (depends on the dough!). I am watching my weight, and I find these scoops to be a great size for small portions of ice cream, mini-muffins, and meatballs that can be eaten in about two bites, and medium-sized cookies that are (to me at least) satisfying but not excessive for one person.Note that the #40 is too small to make generous, bakery-style cookies. If you want to make big ones like those, go with a bigger scoop I use a #16 (2 ounce) for large cookies destined for bake sales. The #16 produces cookies in the 3 to 4 inch diameter range with most around 3.5 inches. I find these too big for regular household use, through.My only complaint about the Vollrath scoop is that they don t make a left-handed version. This is a strongly right-handed tool. I am left-handed and I usually hold this scoop in my left hand, scoop the food, and then reach up at an angle with my index and middle fingers to pull down on the lever to release the food. This is awkward. The angle I have to hold it at means that the power sweep of the arc is from the bottom of the scoop to the top, rather than top to bottom, which makes it a little more difficult to free sticky substances. I sometimes switch the tool to my right hand for the release, which makes for an easier release but feels more awkward to me as my right hand is weaker and less accurate than my left one. But these are small issues compared with the high quality and performance of this scoop.Note: there is another good ice cream scoop out there, the Zeroll, which is a much simpler scoop with no mechanism or lever, and thus can be used equally well in either hand. Its trick is that its handle contains a liquid which, warmed by the grip of your hand, slightly warms the bowl of the scoop from the inside, resulting in a smooth, easy glide through ice cream. I really like the Zeroll scoop for ice cream as well I have the Zeroll Zerolon #30 (1 ounce), which is the smallest one Zeroll makes and slightly larger than the Vollrath #40 (3/4 ounce). I use the Zeroll #30 and the Vollrath #40 about equally for ice cream, but the Zeroll is of course no good for cookie dough, muffin batter, or meatballs. For those, I use the Vollrath. 5Durable and long lastingI tried this after baking some molten Choco lava cookies, and this scoop to portion the cookies out. This dishes scoop is e as y to use and it does feel durable. This will last a long time. I recommend this brand, the Vollrath, it has been used by pros too. I recommend buying it at affordable restaurant supply stores especially at US Foods.5Excellent quality, made in the USA! Update: My original review was for the #10 size scoop. Since then, I have purchased the size 16, and it works just as well as the size 10 does. Excellent quality and very comfortable in your hand. I ordered again at Shop at Dean (Amazon Supplier)got excellent service, and got the Vollrath brand as requested. Very nice scoop if you get the actual Vollrath Stainless Steel Disher instead of a substitute. The first one I ordered had to be sent back because a different, inferior brand was substituted. The Vollrath scoop has a one piece handle that is comfortable, is well made, and the release works well. I bought it to make consistent sized gluten free hamburger buns in my Muffin Top pan. 5This is not a Vollrath product, it is Thunder ... This is not a Vollrath product, it is Thunder Group, made in China and very cheap and flimsy. This broke the 3rd time I used it. I will be calling Amazon for replacement. 1Love Vollrath dishers!Just added #16 2 oz disher to my collection. I've had the #8 4oz disher for 10 plus years and it's still going strong for serving mash potatoes or 4 oz hamburger patty. I also have the #30 1 oz and #40 3/4 oz which are perfect for cookies and meatballs. Next purchase will be #10 3.25 oz. Great product and quality.5THIS IS THE HIGHEST QUALITY !!! I purchased this Vollrath 5-1/3 oz. stainless steel disher,(scoop), because I work in a restaurant that is relatively small,(it's in a large metropolitan airport),but,busy nonetheless,and I wind up doing quite a bit of "prep-work" for this restaurant. It often seemed that when I needed to use a disher to do my work, it had been either misplaced or was being used by a fellow co-worker. That can get to be extremely frustrating. So I thought,"Why not just purchase one of my own? I'm sure that I will be able to bring it through security,then I'll have one and I won't have to search for something just to do my job." So,I looked for this online,and,it was not hard to believe that Amazon had it. I bought the disher,it arrived on time and in excellant condition. Didn't have any problem getting it through security,and,now I don't have to search. Do any of my fellow customers read the reviews about products before they purchase them? I do not know,as I am not them. But,if you are,let me tell you a little bit about this scoop as I use it in "real life" conditions every day. Quality: the highest. Ease of use: It's a scoop. How hard can it be to use? It does not care if you are right or left handed. Longevity? Will it last if I use it often or for different things? : I plan on keeping and using this disher,(scoop), for YEARS !! While I can not predict the future,and I do plan on buying another to keep as a back up, I honestly can not see this scoop wearing out EVER. I'll be using it for years. Amount the scoop holds: 5 1/3 oz. Is that correct? : Yes,it is. I portion a lot of hamburgers,they are supposed to weigh 5 oz. If I fill the scoop to the top and weigh what's inside,the burger is a little bit heavy,(that's not good food cost), so I've learned to take a bit out then weigh it and everything is just fine. So,now you've read,(there has to be people out there who will read this), a review written by a person who has purchased and uses quite often the product that you are considering. You might be wondering,"If I use my money to get this,will it be worth it? Will it last?" The answer to both of those two questions is simple: Heck , yeah !! Thank you for your time. 5Strong, sturdy ice cream scoop. I really like this ice cream scoop. I saw a lot of other options online and in stores that had negative reviews because the triggers are flimsy and break, but this one is very sturdy and strong. It s a large scoop (4 oz), which is nice. I use it with ice cream straight out of the freezer and as long as you have the strength to push it in, the scoop seems ready and able to get the job done. I also like the deep dome shape. The ice cream presents nicely to company, and it doubles as an egg scoop when I have to drop them into boiling water without cracking them. 5
