KitchenAid Classic Ice Cream Scoop, One Size, Aqua Sky 2

Real Simple / Reese Herrington

More often than not, I like to indulge in an evening dessert after dinner—something sweet to perfectly complement my savory meal. My go-to, quick frozen treat is two scoops of ice cream, usually slathered in whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles. Over the years, I've gone through my fair share of scoopers, and every single one has let me down, with the exception of KitchenAid's Ice Cream Scoop.

As a fellow ice cream lover, I know the pain of relying on weak tools to get the job done. I've run scoops and spoons under hot water to make dipping them into ice cream tubs easier. I've also tried microwaving the container for ten seconds to soften the confection, and all these little tricks have led me to one conclusion: I just don't want to work this hard to enjoy a simple dessert after a long day.

Some of these less-than-stellar gadgets have even caused the arthritis in my hands to flare up from the stress of scooping with inferior equipment. While searching for the perfect scoop, it was the KitchenAid's nearly perfect 4.8 rating that convinced me to give the $15 tool a try.

This scoop features a durable cast zinc head that glides effortlessly into gallons of ice cream like butter and a glossy, ergonomic handle that feels comfortable in my small hands. It also works great for digging into melons and cantaloupes. The bright aqua handle makes it easy to spot in my utensil drawer, but you can also grab it in classic black and pistachio green. My cleaning process is as simple as tossing it in the dishwasher once I'm done.

"If you buy any ice cream scoops, buy this one," one reviewer affirmed. "It is the best, works fantastic, and washes well in the dishwasher." "It's nicely weighted and balanced," another shopper chimed in while also declaring it "the perfect ice cream scooper."

Don't waste any more time or money on mediocre scoops. Take the popular KitchenAid Ice Cream Scoop for a spin.
