It is a nice little multi-tasker. I have used this tool for the following tasks:
1. Cookies of exactly the same size, even baking
2. Chocolate truffles
3. Cheesecake balls to be dipped in chocolate
4. Ice cream balls also to be dipped in chocolate
5. Melon balls
6. Goat cheese balls to be baked or rolled in herbs or nuts
7. Scooping Risotto for fried risotto balls
8. Perfect bite size meatballs
9. Gnudi (Italian Ricotta and Spinach dumplings)
10. Spingi (Italian doughnuts)
I now cannot imagine baking cookies without this little tool. It is so nice to have all the cookies be exactly the same size. It makes baking much more pleasurable.
This tool has so many uses. Whenever it is helpful to have products turn out the same size (bite sized) I grab this little tool from the drawer. I come up with new uses for this tool every month.
I am not certain what lubrication one of the other reviewers is referring to. There is no lubrication on this tool that I can find. As long as it is clean (no dough or other gunk dried in the sweep mechanism) it works fine. I make certain to drop it in a mug of hot soapy water as soon as I am finished with it to make certain that nothing gums up the sweep mechanism. After 5 minutes a quick hand wash and it is ready to go back into the drawer.
I highly recommend this product to anyone that loves to cook.
When we first got this scoop, we could tell that the metal it was made of was quite thin and sharp, so that in the course of using or washing the scoop it's possible to get cut not only by the inside of the handle but also the scoop bowl itself.
It's a small gripe, but worth noting, that the gears at the handle are not proportioned correctly on the scoop we received, so when you squeeze the handle the scoop/disher arm doesn't quite reach one side of the bowl but comes up past the top of the other side. This would be a quick fix if the gears were the right size (click it to the next gear tooth, which you even need to do occasionally with a good quality scoop if the gears slip), but they're not, so the scoop/disher arm has to be perpetually uneven in the bowl. Again, not a huge gripe, but when using the scoop for sticky cookie dough or cupcake/muffin batter it can be hard to get them out. Not good in a scoop that's supposed to be for convenience.
In the course of normal use and washing the spring in the handle has rusted and the gear end of the handle has slightly corroded and also popped open, and won't go back "into gear" without popping apart again. All of this surprised me because we have other scoops that are years old and still look, and work, like new.
I'm going to take a pair of pliers to the gear end and see if I can get it to stay together by bending it a bit, because despite the low quality build of the scoop we received, it is really a helpful tool for making kid-sized cookies and portioning out small amounts quickly. I'm also going to hedge my bets by hunting down a sturdier small scoop and when I get it, this scoop is going.
