Add this solid anti-freeze ice cream scoop to your collection!
Weird, was our first reaction. The ice cream scoop was cool to the touch even in August. When you put it to your ear and shook it, you could hear the anti-freeze compound thumping in the hollow handle. We concluded that it was some kind of powder, not a liquid.
Did it work? Yes, the ice cream slips right off the cool scoop. And it's a nice, hefty scoop that gives you the leverage to go to work on a hard block of ice cream.
This is like the kind of anti-freeze ice cream spades that the creamery ice cream shops use but in a scoop design.
When do you want an ice cream spade instead of a round scoop? An ice cream spade works best in hard ice cream cutting through easily and scooping plenty. It's easier to press the spade through the hard ice cream with force and leverage. Save the round scoop for softer ice creams and to make round balls for ice cream cones.
Editor's Note: We have used a pair of these scoops for over a year and love them. Though our kids sometimes slip them into the dishwasher, for the longest life of the anti-freeze compound, we recommend that you wash them in the sink, not the dishwasher.
