I have had three of these for many years and absolutely love them. I mostly use them for cookies and muffins. Everything comes out cleanly and evenly. They are tools any baker should have in their kitchen.
These high quality scoops are the best!! They're perfect for measuring cupcake batter and cookie dough. The cookie dough doesn't get stuck in the scoop even when it's cold and firm, you get the perfect size every time. Once you use these scoops you'll be hooked too and they're dishwasher safe, what could be better :
After reading all the good reviews on this scoop I decided to buy one. I chose the 2 ounce scoop for ice cream. It is certainly a solid, well-built kitchen utensil. However, upon first use, I found it nearly impossible to scoop ice cream, and the spring loaded mechanism simply did not work without a lot of force being squeezed upon it. I am a male with large (strong?) hands. My wife and daughters tried and immediately decided the scoop should be thrown out. It may be great for cookie dough (not what we bought it for), and it could be a smaller size would be better and easier to use for ice cream. I have since bought the OXO Steel Ice Cream Scoop and found it quite satisfactory. If you are a woman or have small hands, I strongly encourage you to avoid the two ounce scoop for ice cream
I love these scoops and have them in three different sizes. Although, I don't actually use them for ice cream. I use these to scoop the perfect amount of muffin/cupcake batter in to my tins, scoop out cookies, etc. They are a wonderful purchase and I recommend anyone who bakes a lot to buy these as they will make your life easier
I bought the smallest of these for cookies, and it's fantastic. I've also used it for mini muffins, and it was perfect as far as actually clearing the entire scoop of batter and the mechanism is sturdier and smoother to use than any others I tested, including Oxo.
As an ice cream scoop, this one does not work. I got the 8oz scoop. It does not release ice cream from the scoop, and when it does there is much of it left stuck inside the scoop. The spring jams and it is difficult to scoop with. The rest of the reviews are based on rating it as a cookie scoop. Don't be fooled. You are better off with another scoop if you will primarily be using it for ice cream
When using them to portion out cupcakes, what size should I use

Best Answer:A Standard muffin cup is about 2 1/2 inches in diameter and holds 1/4 to 1/3 cup batter.A Giant or Texas-size muffin cup is about 3 _ inches in diameter and holds 5/8 cup batter.A Miniature muffin cup is about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter and holds 1/8 cup or 2 tablespoons batter.The best scoop for you to get in order to fill these muffin or cupcake tins would be the 4 TBSP one which holds about 1/4 cup and the 5.25 TBSP 1/3 cup of batter. If you are going to be making miniature muffins or cupcakes I would go with the 2 TBSP scoop which would be approximately 1/8 cup
Can you do a similar conversion for oz to tablespoons? I see the one that shows inches to tablespoons, but the measurements don't seem to match up with what I would expect. I'm wondering if the sizes changed or if I'm using the wrong conversion
