Make the Cookie Scoop an everyday kitchen essential by using it for meringues, muffins, cupcakes, ice cream, melons, rice, meatballs, and more.
For easy scooping and consistently round cookies, try an OXO Good Grips Cookie Scoop. OXO Scoops have soft grips that absorb pressure while you squeeze to easily release your cookie dough. This medium size scoop holds 1.5 tablespoons of cookie dough and produces a 2.75 inch cookie.
Cookies that are uniform in size will bake evenly, creating a consistently perfect batch. Available also in small and large sizes, this medium-size scoop picks up approximately 1-1/2 tablespoons of dough, which yields a cookie 2-3/4 inches in diameter. While the handles are spread a bit wide for small hands to manage easily, the soft grips do add comfort when squeezing to release the dough. Dishwasher-safe, the scoop can also be used to produce decorative 1-3/4-inch balls of ice cream, rice, and other foods. --Ann Bieri

I added a picture of the scoops and the balls they created to the item, see the alternate pictures. The balls are made out of quite firm, straight from the refrigerator whipped white chocolate ganache. There are two scoops shown for each disher. On the left is a scoop leveled off with a knife, to the right is a slightly rounded "natural" scoop.
(from left to right, see picture) I also bought the Norpro Stainless Steel Scoop, 25MM (1.5 Teaspoon) and am keeping that, as I really wanted a very small scoop. The next smallest is also the most expensive, the smaller of the two Zeroll Universal Small EZ Disher Food/Ice Cream Scoop, Orange, followed by the Zeroll Universal Small EZ Disher Food/Ice Cream Scoop, Burgundy. They made nice scoops, but I returned the Zerolls as I found the plastic handles rather awkward to use with very stiff batter. These are followed by the Oxo Good Grips Small Cookie Scoop and the Adcraft (purchased at a local restaurant supply store), which I felt would be best for cookies or small meatballs, but if you like a larger truffle, they could be used for that too. The Oxo Good Grips Small Cookie Scoop has the most comfortable handle to use of all of them. It produced ganache balls of 14-19 grams.
The first 3 dozen cookies were a combination peanut butter and Nutella recipe, so the dough was nice and smooth and buttery, very easy to handle. The scoop worked beautifully, and I had consistently sized cookies.
The second 3 dozen cookies were oatmeal raisin, so the dough was much more textured and bumpy with the rolled oats and the plump raisins. I imagine this is what foiled the scoop for me -- the gear went off track by about one tooth, so the scraper was misaligned with the scoop a bit. The result was that the scraper didn't scrape all the way to the edges, and the ball of dough would hang from the scoop. I kept going anyway, using my finger to drop the ball of dough at the end of each cookie placement. Later, in the same batch of cookies, the gear went even further off track. I kept going because I didn't want to stop to fix the thing while I had my oven pre-heating, but eventually, the spring came out, and I ended up manually turning the gear just to finish off the batch.
I was able to fix it once I cleaned it, all while the cookies were baking, but it took some finesse and brute force to get it done. In other words, it wasn't easy, but it was fixable. I'm not even sure why it went off track in the first place unless the scraper got caught on a rolled oat or raisin.
The last 3 dozen cookies were another variation of peanut butter and Nutella, with some tahini thrown in, so again, the dough was smooth and buttery. Again, no problem. Perfectly done cookies. I was wary throughout the process, though, and was very careful in how I handled the scoop.
I want to grade this four stars, but honestly I'm nervous about using the scoop for any kind of dough with chunks in it -- like chocolate chips or nuts or dried fruit. I'll see how it goes with my next batch of cookies and update my review if my feelings change.
All in all, when it works, it works really well. But when the parts get out of their groove, ugh. Just be careful and watch the alignment of the gear and teeth, especially when working with hard to handle dough. That means doughs that are chunky or cold or stiff.
I'm grading it three stars ("it's OK") because after having it break while baking, I don't really have the peace of mind that I had when I first started using it.
2 month follow-up: I broke these on chilled oatmeal cookies dough even after letting it warm up. While the base of the unit is sturdy, the thin metal piece that slides under the cookie dough when the handle is squeezed is fragile. It bends until it breaks and no longer works. Since these are supposed to last longer than a couple of months, I removed 2 stars. I am not sure any other brand is better for chilled cookie dough. I am back to an ice cream scoop with no thin metal steel strip to mangle and rolling the dough in my hands. I am learning why experienced bakers dig in with their hands instead of using clever tools that break. I love Oxo and really wanted to like these as I now broken a small and medium. Perhaps they are fine if the dough is warm, but then the dough sticks to the scoop. Doh! Nice try Oxo. I will use an ice cream scoop, a tablespoon, or my hands.
