Sizes are inaccurate,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Norpro Stainless Steel Cookie Scoop Set of 3 (Kitchen)
I just got these and I could tell just by looking at them that the sizes were inaccurate. The 2 tsp. scoop actually holds 1 level tablespoon. The 1 tablespoon scoop holds 1 1/2 tablespoons, and the 2 tablespoon scoop actually holds 3 tablespoons. This won't be a problem with most people but for some people who might be running a catering business and are concerned with things like cost and portion control it could be. The scoops themselves are well made and can probably handle the stiffest of cookie doughs. The action on the largest scoop isn't as smooth as the other two but I probably won't use it very often anyway. I'd use it as an ice cream scoop if I didn't already have one.
UPDATE: I've noticed that since this review was published that Amazon has updated the description of the item to show the accurate sizes.

Strange review as the description clearly states "1 tablespoon #676, 1.5 tablespoon #677, and 3 tablespoon #678 ".

It's not strange in the least, it is very helpful. FYI Amazon is notorious for having inaccurate descriptions and without reviewers like this consumers may never get the proper info.

Ms. M says:
The review is strange because the reviewer points out that the scoop size is inaccurate. Only the reviewer measures the scoops to hold exactly what the product description claims to hold.
Product description, "1 tablespoon #676, 1.5 tablespoon #677, and 3 tablespoon #678".
Consumer Review: "The 2 tsp. scoop actually holds 1 level tablespoon. The 1 tablespoon scoop holds 1 1/2 tablespoons, and the 2 tablespoon scoop actually holds 3 tablespoons."
I'm confused as to whether the reviewer inverted what the scoop was supposed to hold vs. what it actually does hold. Or is this just another crazy amazon review? An update would be appreciated.

I think Amazon changed their description, that's why we are confused!

Amazon changed the description of the item after my review was published. The original description was as I had described.

The only 2 T Norpro I've found so far is one of the EZ grip ones with the padded handles. I have not found a standard one yet that is 2 T.
I just called amazon to report a description that says 2T at the top, and 3T in the description. So if someone called them on this one they may have corrected it.
