I've tried lots of different types of scoops, and they all leave me wanting. I scoured the stores in search of something that A) is built like a brick sh*thouse, B) was dishwasher safe, because hand washing is for the proletariat, B) had a cutting edge or fluid-dynamic shape, so that it blasts through even the frozen-est of frozen treats, and C) has at least as much style as function. NOTHING fit the bill!
So I took a chance on this neat looking one I found on Amazon, from some rando company names SUMO, who seems to make no other utensil style product. And it arrived. And I kinda fell in love, guys.
This thing is OFF THE CHAIN. It meets and beats all of the requirements. It's built rock solid, and feels like you could probably take down a wharthog or baby hippo with it, as long as you got the jump on them. It's got a great leading cutting edge on it, and slices through hard ice cream like an angry gang banger chasing you down for drug money. It washes up easy, and the solid rubber grip makes you feel like you're cradling a newborn's scalp. It's got it all! And thanks to BIG UTENSIL I never thought that was possible until now.
Guys, I bought another. Yes, I actually bought a second one of these. WHO NEEDS TWO ICE CREAM SCOOPS?!?! I don't know, but now I have the best damn two ice cream scoops I can get. That's 200% more of the greatest thing to touch frozen diary based deserts since chocolate syrup.
Enter the mighty Sumo. Oh, lordy. I can now eat my dessert without fear. First off, this hefty fellow feels great in the hand. It's like picking up a gavel in a noisy courtroom - "I'm about to declare some order in these here chambers." Secondly, the metal seems to cut through even the coldest of creams. No thaw time required. Self-discipline is needed when a-la-moding these days because part of me wants to keep on scooping even after I've portioned out my serving. It's too satisfying Finally, look at it. Simple. Utilitarian. Colorful. What's not to like? Domo arigato, Sumo.
1. Easy to clean, preferably dishwasher-safe.
2. Solid stainless steel bowl that won't pit or lose its coating.
3. Good, comfortable grip.
4. Ability to cut through hard ice cream with ease.
5. Good scoop size for serving in bowls and sugar cones.
6. Easy ice cream release (little to no sticking).
8. Reasonably priced.
9. High satisfaction write-ups on Amazon and other sites (especially those written by reviewers who did not receive the item at a discount in exchange for a review).
I started by looking at a variety of styles & features: trigger/lever release mechanisms; antifreeze in the handle; spade-style; made from a single piece of metal; comfort grips; stainless steel bowls (both round and oval); non-stick coated, etc. After reading many reviews (both pro and con) for the different styles, and comparing these with the results of the America's Test Kitchen ice cream scoop tests, I opted to purchase the SUMO ice cream scoop.
I am thrilled with my decision! I am a big OXO Good Grips fan, however, having read a number of reviews of the OXO model, it appears that there have been some problems with the bowl either rusting or pitting over time. Because the SUMO scoop comes with a lifetime guarantee, I chose it over the OXO scoop (at the time I purchased it, it was also less expensive). After I purchased the SUMO scoop, I read that OXO stands behind their products as well, but I'm happy with my purchase.
As other reviewers have mentioned, the scoop arrives nicely packaged in a box. At the time of my purchase, the only color available was purple. (I am not a huge fan of purple, but heck, it's an ice cream scoop, so color wasn't a deciding factor. And it's a darker purple, not a pastel lilac color, so it's fine.) It's got a nice weight to it – solid, but not too heavy. I took out a new carton of ice cream from the freezer (Friendly's Black Raspberry) and tested the hardness with an 18/10 stainless steel soup spoon – it was pretty difficult to get my spoon to do much in terms of scooping, due to the hardness of the ice cream. I then tried the SUMO scoop. SUMO claims that their scoop "glides through hard frozen dessert like butter". Boy, does it ever – it absolutely cuts right through hard ice cream, making it a breeze to serve! I was shocked at how easy it was to scoop up the ice cream – as well as how easy it released into both sugar cones and bowls!
After repeated use (and multiple washes in the dishwasher) I am still thrilled with my SUMO scoop. It meets all my required criteria, and then some! The pointed tip (which wasn't one of my original criteria) makes it easy to get into the corners of rectangular ice cream cartons, so that no ice cream is wasted. And having a scoop made from a solid piece of stainless steel – rather than one that has a separate neck and handle that have been welded together – means that I don't have to worry about this one breaking the way my last one did. My husband, my 10-year old son and I can all use this scoop easily - and the grip is comfortable for all of us. I highly recommend this scoop!
I purchased this scoop at FULL price. I did not receive a discount, nor did I receive any incentive to leave a product review. I am happy with this scoop - and would re-purchase it again at full price!

It has some good weight to it which is necessary to get into the ice cream and create a perfect scoop. The most essential feature is the slightly pointed edge which cuts into the ice cream instead of skimming the top. I've tried many a scoop but have no de-cluttered all of them in favour of this one. Suddenly scooping ice cream out is no longer a chore.
The front tip of the scoop is designed like a blade so that it slices through solid ice cream effortlessly. In fact, it's so sharp that you have to be careful not to slice right through the ice cream carton as well if it happens to be cardboard!
This is a serious bit of kitchen kit, and because it's sharp and relatively heavy I wouldn't let our young kids use it. But all in all, for the price, I don't think you can find a better scoop!
