Is it a Scoop? Or is it a Disher?

Is it a Scoop? Or is it a Disher?It’s Both!

These portion-controlled kitchen tools are referred to as dishers in the food service industry, but to the rest of the cooking community they are more commonly referred to as ice cream scoops.

Dishers are more commonly used for dishing ice cream, but also work well for scooping cookie dough, creating truffles, portioning-off muffin or cupcake batter, serving a variety of entrée sides and much more. And because they come in a variety of sizes and styles, they have come to be an essential tool in the food service industry for quick, easy, and accurate food prep.

How Do You Choose a Disher?

Dishers measure portions. Traditionally, dishers are sized by the number of scoops per quart, but may also be sized by ounces, the diameter of the bowl, or the number of tablespoons they hold. We’ve created a couple of reference guides to help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
