Maternity Round Collar Floral Full Print Tank Tops Review
joeyjhg2: I like this ice cream scooper. It's not fancy or as attractive as a Kitchenaid that I have, but it serves the purpose. It's easy to grip the handle and scoop ice cream quite easily. I also like the size, as it fits in my hand just perfect.
J.R.T.: The actual function of this scoop deserves 5 stars, but after a couple years of use the chrome plating inside the scoop is pitting. Looks like a matter of time before it begins to flake off. I'm going for a stainless steel scoop next time.
Knits in Tardis: ...no kidding, and that number is just what's for sale on the Amazon website.The problem with chrome covered plastic...is that it's chrome covered plastic. Not really dishwasher safe in practical use, and in fact it's pretty risky to the finish just to let such a material soak in water as you might in the sink. So with this new scoop, I'm firmly reminding myself to wash it off after using, no soaking - get it dry and put away. But that kind of diligence is not always easy to manage, so it's a factor in deciding between all the brands and models out there.I don't necessarily expect this scoop to "snap" faster than an all-metal kind might. Base metal is really not always that strong, and certainly metal can bend. (15 seconds in the microwave can save tool and hands without seriously melting your dessert, though perhaps ice cream purists shudder at the thought.)The shape of the scoop lends itself wonderfully to getting hardened ice cream out, not so much to forming a pretty, round cone. If that's your priority, you may want the lever/trigger type of cone, or perhaps a non-stick rounded version. Again, see what else is out there - I'm partial to Oxo's ergonomic features, and with everything from mini-scoopers to a spade, Oxo has a lot of preferences covered.If I wear this unit out quickly, I will probably take a second look at Oxo's (more expensive) all-stainless version of this scoop. But considering I've tried all sorts of scoops over time and all have had their drawbacks, I'll consider a few year's good use to be decent value. Will update this review if the scoop proves downright fragile, though!
Koko the Talking Ape: The handle is big and comfy, like most of OXO's products'. But the "points" idea doesn't work so well. You have to drag the scoop across the ice cream, which requires some wrist strength. A spear point scoop you plunge directly into the ice cream that I used to have worked better.Also the "chrome" finish is pitting, specifically inside the scoop. It probably doesn't affect its function, but it doesn't look great.
M. E. Volmar: This is a handy, sturdy and attractive ice cream scoop with a unique, pointed-edged shape that works its way through the hardest ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet or sherbet with minimal effort. Its hefty body fits comfortably in the hand, making it require less force to operate than the more traditional scoops do, and keeping you away from cramped hands and other tension related injuries.Like the rest of the products from the OXO Good Grips line, this one is a great value of superior quality, unsurpassed durability and flawless performance. Its ergonomic design and big, pressure-absorbing, outstanding non-slip grip, complete with flexible fins to accommodate your fingers and an oversized hole for easy hanging, allow you comfortable, daily, wet or dry use. Its strong, stout neck is unbendable, and its elegant style makes it perfect to move back and forth between the kitchen and the dinner table.Its easy-to-clean, simple construction and dishwasher-safe, hardwearing materials make this a tool that you will be able to depend on for years, and its chrome-plated scoop will permanently keep your rust worries away.Be aware that there are a lot of negative reviews on this page that do not refer to this item, but to the lever-operated version, also from the Good Grips line.If you buy this product you will get your money's worth guaranteed. After submitting this product to over three years of normal use, mine is still just like new.--Reviewed by M. E. Volmar
