Unfortunately it's not mentioned on this product page (at this time anyway), but these dishers are NOT MEANT FOR SCOOPING ICE CREAM or any other frozen or hard food. This and other useful information is available on Vollrath's website. These dishers are meant strictly for portion/size control – if you want all your cookies, muffins, cupcakes, meatballs, etc. to be the same size, this is what you need. Restaurants use these dishers for portion control; for example, dishing out the same/maximum amount of potato salad on every burger plate. If you want to scoop ice cream, you need something designed for that – not this portion disher.
This brand stands out in quality from all the rest – Vollrath has been making equipment for the foodservice industry for 140 years. But they don't guarantee their products for "personal, family or household use" - only commercial - something to think about.
You might find the chart I've included useful when selecting the size you need.
I pressed against the palm of my hand to form the portions shown in the pictures, and one could produce "balls" by rounding the half rounds.
I also own and use the purple handle # 40 and have had similar excellent results.
I appreciate that these dishers are made in the USA and NSF approved.
I can tell that they are made for the "food service - restaurant" industry by the solid construction and feel.
Note; a sticky or loose dough will tend to cause any disher to under perform. Ways to remedy this include:
- refrigerating the dough to stiffen it
- dipping the disher in warm water in between dispensing
- coating the disher bowl with; butter, ghee, coconut oil, shortening, nonstick spray, etc.
I can compare them to the OXO Good Grips Trigger Ice Cream Scoop - purchased recently - and similar in design.
-Both the OXO and the Vollrath cost about the same.
-The OXO is of noticeable lower quality. The trigger mechanism bends easily and the spring is much weaker than the Vollarth. While the handle's grip is nice on the OXO the overall build of the OXO is poor.
-The Vollrath is made of heavier metal and stronger construction.
-The Vollrath's blade inside the scoop is stronger and doesn't wiggle around. The blade swings across the entire scoop unlike the OXO. Clearly the Vollrath is better made.
-The Vollrath color coded handels are nice and they are also stamped with the size (#24) on the metal trigger.
For baking, ice cream or general use - I really like the Vollrath and will buy more of the different sizes as I need them.
This disher has a thumb lever that rotates the axle, and I am very happy to see that the gear, axle, and sweeper are one piece of steel. The axle is also a much larger diameter than the old one (more than double). Every part of this disher is much more robust than the old one. (The picture is deceptive - it looks kinda flimsy, but it is not.) So I expect to scoop a lot of cookies with this one for many years to come.
I am also very happy to see that this disher was made in the USA, and it is stamped Vollrath.
I got this specifically to measure out waffle batter for my Chef's Choice Classic Waffle Maker Chef's Choice 840B WafflePro Express Waffle Maker, Classic Belgian based on a recommendation from another waffle maker owner. The batter for his recipe is fairly thick, and tends to mound up in the disher a #10 disher (beige handle) measures out a half cup (which is what the waffle maker calls for). Unfortunately, the batter for my recipes tend to be thinner, making a #8 disher more accurate for my needs.
Long story short, if you have a waffle maker that needs a half cup of batter, use the #10 for thick batter, and the #8 for runny batter.
Either way, though, this is a perfect way to quickly and accurately measure out waffle batter (or anything else) without making a mess.
