Norpro 2Tbsp coffee scoop,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Norpro 5537 Stainless Steel Coffee Scoop, 2 Tablespoon (Kitchen)
The Norpro coffee scoop is an excellent product. Reviews for other scoops claim they have issues breaking at a weld joining the handle and scoop or the handles bend easily. While I have no experience with those scoops, it would take some serious abuse to do the same to the Norpro scoop.
The Norpro scoop, as far as I can tell is one solid piece. There is no noticeable seam or welds anywhere. The handle is robust and does not bend easily. It does deflect when I intentionally try and bend it, but that constitutes abuse of the product. I've used the end of the handle to open tins of tea no problem.
The back of the handle is stamped 2 Tablespoons so there is never any doubt the measure of the scoop. The handle is about 8in and easily reaches the bottom of coffee bags. Eight scoops does equal one cup so the 2 Tbsp marking is accurate.
The Norpro scoop has minimal packaging. It's attached to a piece of paperboard with two twist ties.
The only questionable thing is that the packaging says 1 Tbsp of coffee per 8 oz/ 250mL of water. I've always used 2Tbsp of coffee per 6oz of water.

Thanks for clarifying it is an accurate 2 tablespoons. I ordered based on that statement, however maybe I am doing it wrong. I cannot fit 2 tablespoons in to this scoop when using a 1 tbsp scoop to measure it. Maybe 1.5tbsp.

Might be the difference between liquid and dry measures.
