Who doesn’t love ice cream?
I was so excited last week to be digging through our storage unit and unearth my ice cream maker which has been tucked away in the furthest depths since the end of last summer. I don’t normally put it in storage during the winter months, because ice cream is good ANY time of year. This year however, there was a move involved so I had to pick and choose what is in my teeny tiny kitchen at the moment and that guy just doesn’t fit my daily life. However, I was thrilled to pull him out and play!
We made a few different types of ice cream, which will be coming to the blog soon, but in the meantime…
We wanted to try out the SUMO scoop, so we got some frozen custard and went to town.
Here are my thoughts. It has a unique almost pointed spoon shape that cuts easily into hard ice cream. It claims that it slides through solid ice cream, and while I did feel like I was able to maneuver it around enough to get out very frozen ice cream, I would not agree that it “slid easily”. It was still a much better solution to a traditional ice cream scoop, and I was able to (with lots of elbow grease) work it through and get it.
The non-slip casing around the handle is really soft and very comfortable. It was easy to hold and never slipped out of my hands which was nice. Plus there were a few spots of REALLY hard ice cream, and never once was there any fear of it breaking. It’s nice and sturdy.
When we were finished using it, it just took a quick brush with a soapy sponge to get it clean, however we have also run it through our dishwasher. Being made of stainless steel it held up just fine.
Our family really loves this ice cream scoop.
I received the SUMO scoop to facilitate this review, however as usual all opinions are honest and 100% my own.
