TIP OF THE DAY: A More Cooperative Ice Cream Scoop

Ice cream slides off the scoop. Available at


Just as with any kitchen tool, the right ice cream scoop makes your life easier.

We had five different ice cream scoops acquired over the years. Our challenge was getting the ball of ice cream to release from the scoop.

The ice cream scoops with the triggers and spring actions didn’t work for us. The classic style used in ice cream parlors, favored by Mom, wasn’t effective either (she’s a lot stronger than we are).

Apparently, quite a few other people have the sticking problem. So Norpro created its Nonstick Anti-Freeze Ice Cream Scoop. Plastic instead of metal, it cuts through hard ice cream and just as easily releases the balls into the dish. It costs less than metal scoops—just $6.55 at

Invite friends over for ice cream to try your new scoop. Have everyone bring their scoops and call it “research.”
