Types of Ice Cream Scoops

welcome to the scoop school podcast
where we tackle your conundrums about
the retail ice cream and frozen dessert
business and now here’s your host
he’ll never desert a dessert the ice
cream bloke and self-appointed
headmaster of school school Steve
Christensen get ice cream lovers my
name’s T Christensen the self-appointed
headmaster of scoop school thanks for
joining us this episode of the podcast
simulcast whether you’re listening on
itunes or watching on youtube
the lovely to have you here we’re
broadcasting from scoop school in st.
Louis Missouri and today we’re talking
about the humble scoop the type of
scoops there are which work which don’t
and some precautions for you Before we
jump into that though I do want to thank
our episode sponsor which is kappa
shauni kappa johnny italian based
company manufacturing in italy batch
freezer soft serve machines popsicle
machines having distribution all over
the world so whether you’re watching
this in north america south america
australia europe asia the UK they’ve got
distribution everywhere so go to car
Pazhani comm CA r p IG IA ni car Pazhani
calm we thank you for your apis owed
sponsorship now we’re talking scoops
this and the next three episodes this
one we’re gonna talk about the types of
scoops there are and in episode while in
the next three we’re going to be talking
about the three cardinal sins of
scooping not to be missed particularly
if you are a scoop or own and ice cream
shop so let’s talk a little bit about
the types of scoops that there are on
the market we’ll start with this one
here this is called a Disher and a
couple of things you’ll note about it
one is that it’s color-coded and has a
number on it
now thankfully most manufacturers try
and stick with the same color per the
same number and that number is the
amount of scoops per gallon of product
so this is a number 24 you’ll see it on
the on the mechanism here it’ll either
have it on the bottom or on the side and
they’ll say what number
is now again that number denotes how
many scoops per gallon there is when
you’re using this Disher now the
confusing thing is that this is called a
Disher because it dishes out product as
well as scoops ice cream and you’ll
actually see that it has a 1 and 1/3
ounce Bowl so if I were to filled this
up with liquid by volume I’m getting 1
and 1/3 ounces in this scoop now this is
where it gets a bit confusing ladies and
gentlemen because in the ice cream
business when we do all of our portion
control and our costing we look at
weight answers but your a lot of the
times you’ll come across these volume
metric ounces and it’s important not to
get the two mixed up so this is a number
24
Disher it has a 1 and 1/3 ounce bowl by
volume but I can scoop a 3 ounce scoop
by weight and put it in my cup of my
cone so it’s important for you to
understand the difference between ounces
by weight and ounces by volume you’ll
come across them both if you just went
to the metric system like the rest of
the world you’d be as right as rain but
for now we’re kind of be challenged by
this and they have different colors as I
mentioned as per the size of the scoop
so you’ll note that the larger scoops
will have a smaller number because
you’re getting less scoops per gallon
this says a number 12 your blue scoop
here is a number 16 your yellow is a
number 20 and this is our 24 this is the
one we actually use particularly in our
custard shops now another thing you’ll
note about this particular scoop is that
it is a one sided mechanism so this is a
right-handed scoop if you’re left-handed
you’re gonna have a little bit of
trouble with this so what I would
recommend is making sure that you’re
either only employee right-handed people
just kidding all your lefties or you
have a few of these left-handed
mechanisms to keep everybody happy
another thing you’ll want to notice or
note on your scoop is the ns
F or the UL logo now this basically is a
regulatory department or company in the
United States that regulates products
scoops food servicing really anything
and they have two standards a UL safety
and a ul sanitary or ul sanitation so
you do want to make sure that you’re
either got an NSF or a ul or an ETL
stamp on this because if you go to the
grocery store you can pick up all
different types of crazy scoops that may
look like they’re going to work but
because they don’t have a seal here
between the metal portion and the handle
it’s not NSF or ul approved and this is
where you can get bacterial filling up
so it’s really important to make sure
that when you’re buying scoops you buy
them from a reputable source food
service source and they have a ul NSF or
ETL stamp I don’t know why you would use
this may be apart from if an offender
comes into the store you can establish
so this is the Disher brand another
thing I want to talk about with the
dishes and the different types or
different sizes you really want to
standardize your menu so you only need
one size in the store for all of your
menu items it’s pointless to have the
red one for your cones this one for your
sundaes and this one for your concrete’s
or your blizzard type products it’s
important just to make sure that all of
your menu is made from a1 in this case a
nice three ounce by weight scoop so all
on our menu boards and all of our stores
and all of our training here at scoop
school we try and get people to develop
their menu as a derivative of one type
of scoop this way all I need to do is
teach my employees just to teach 1/3
ounce scoop if they can scoop 1/3 ounce
scoop by weight then they can make
anything on our menu boards very very
important so a couple of tips there that
will really help you out then you’ve got
your zero type scoop or your premium or
hard scoop ice cream scoop a couple of
things to note here the majority of
these again you’ll want to make sure
that they’re etl us a ul or NSF approved
and a lot of them have some form of
antifreeze in the handle so what that’s
supposed to
do is to warm up the handle so that you
don’t get frosting on the bowl that’s
harder for that ice cream to release so
give it a bit of a shake a lot of them
will have that anti freeze type of
product where really it’s designed that
your hand or the heat of your hand cools
down or doesn’t allow the bowl to get as
cold as it does because then it won’t
release the ice cream really well I
really do like this particular model
this is actually a Vollrath scoop it’s
ergonomically designed you’ll know if
you’ve scooped a lot of ice cream that
this portion here when you wrap your the
base of your palm around here can get
very very sore whereas this kind of
scoop and again I’m not advocating one
or the other I’m just saying that this
economic type scoop is a really good fit
for your hand and it allows you to scoop
a lot more product without the hassle of
getting blisters or soreness on your
palms another thing to I want to talk
about is ambidextrous coupes this is an
ambidextrous coupe when it comes to your
Disher type brands so there are
ambidextrous coupes as well obviously
the dishes or these viral type scoops
are ambidextrous because you’re gonna
use them either hand but a couple of
things couple of takeaways make sure
that you’re only using one size scoop
per your menu if you can make sure that
they are regulated and approved for use
a ul NSF or ETL and make sure that I
don’t know what the third one was make
sure that your employees can scoop them
yeah I don’t know I just made that third
one up maybe there were only two you
know the next three videos we’re going
to talk about the three cardinal sins of
scooping you’re not gonna want to miss
these because these are things that
happen all the time in ice cream shops
we see it all the time in training and
they’re very very easy fixes so we’re
gonna close up this video about scoops
again make sure that they’re there
they’re approved make sure that you only
have one and make sure that you’ve got
scoops for everybody and by the way get
some in for experimentation these are
generally about eight or nine
so get a whole different array of scoop
sizes experiment with your portion
control and your training and then when
you decide get rid of all the rest put
them in a drawer and stick with the one
size you’ll do very well for yourself in
that regard again we want to thank
carpet Joanie thank you for this episode
sponsorship and if you have any
questions quandary Zoar concerns about
the ice cream business weather how to
get into the business or grow your ice
cream business come and visit us at
scoops cool calm thanks for tuning in
folks keep on scooping see in the next

Ice Cream Scoop Buyers’ Guide

How to use an ice cream scoop?

What you really need to look for in an ice cream scoop is a good handle to grip, sharp edges, and wide scoop. First of all, you will need to heat the scoop under hot water for about 20 to 30 seconds. For round and even scoops, try to make ice cream from the side. Glide through it using ā€œSā€ shaped motion. Do not take too long to scoop it, or else it will melt. When you have already dipped ice cream, place it into a dish or waffle cone, and enjoy it!

How to scoop ice cream?

As already mentioned dipping the scoop into warm water before using it makes your job many times easier. Many think digging an ice cream from the center is the right thing to do. Actually, you will need to scoop from the edges. Accurately tap the scoop for the ice cream to release in a bowl and for the cones, press it on the cone to seal then gently pull it away. Now, as you proceed to the second scoop, make sure to dip it into warm water once again and perform the steps once again.

How many calories in a scoop of ice cream?

The calories in your ice cream depending on the type and adding flavor to it. According to USDA, a scoop of vanilla ice cream equals about 137 calories, including 7.2 grams of fat, carbs of approximately 15 grams, and 2.31 grams of protein. However, note that these numbers indicate the plain scoop of ice cream without any flavors. Once you start adding them on your scoop, calories will increase based on the type of flavor. A typical cookie flavoring will add 13 calories to your ice cream totaling 150 calories.
