WARNING: Store "We Love USA Shop" is selling Counterfeit Product!
on April 11, 2015
Having had this item recommended by America's Test Kitchen, I was truly shocked at the product I received. It is the cheapest construction possible and broke on first use scooping cookie dough. This product is made from stamped steel which can be described at best as "poorly and loosely assembled". It is possibly the crappiest thing I have ever purchased, the articulating portion popping out of place after about 10 scoops of cookie dough. I cannot imagine how it could possibly be used for scooping ice cream. First off the handle is of terrible ergonomic design. If you attempted to scoop anything like ice cream your hand would be very sad very quickly. Secondly, the mechanism that is supposed to free the contents of the scoop is simply a piece of the handle metal bent inwards with teeth cut out and "roll" over a gear that has much too wide of spacing.
As it turns out? COUNTERFEIT. See my attached photos of their janky knockoff product.
Below I have a link to a review on YouTube which shows the quality of the actual Norpro product. Do not be fooled.
I could go on but I'm already annoyed that this thing has stolen my time and energy. I have already reported the seller to Amazon Customer Service, but their reporting mechanism doesn't allow for photos, so I thought I'd include them here.
