Make scooping your favorite frozen desserts easier with the OXO Steel Lever Ice Cream Scoop. Run the scooper head under hot water to cut through hard ice cream, sherbet or sorbet. Turn the scoop over and press the lever. This makes presenting a perfectly scooped dessert to guests a breeze. This can also be used to scoop bread puddings, trifles and other desserts into equal portions. If you are on a diet requiring specific portions of potatoes and other foods, this can act as the portioning device used to stay on track. Items such as rice side dishes, potato salads, cole slaw, beans and macaroni salads will be right at the proper portion for your dietary needs. This is easy for kids to use to get their own dessert or side dish as well.
