Zeroll Ice Cream Scoop$19.00
It was the 1930s, and Sherman Kelly of Toledo, Ohio, set out to invent the world's best ice cream scoop. The result was the Zeroll, a non-mechanical, one-handed "roll dipper," a work and time-saver for every soda jerk who has ever struggled with rock-hard ice cream. It rolled the ice cream into a ball, instead of squeezing it, which allowed the dispenser to get 10% to 20% more servings per gallon. Made to Kelly’s specifications by ALCOA, the Aluminum Company of America, the eronomically-correct universal disher became the industry standard. Although the early success of the scoop was stalled during World War II, as aluminum needed to produce the scoops was diverted to wartime use, Kelly's company was one of the first to obtain aluminum after the war.
Its polished handle is comfortable for large and small hands, filled with a heat-conductive fluid, the handle takes advantage of the natural warmth of your hand to ease scooping and provide easy release. A simple pull-and-turn motion carves out perfect portions of plump, round scoops with minimal effort. The sleek metallic scoop has no moving parts to wear out or break, and is sturdy enough to last indefinitely. Designed for right- and left-handed use, the scoop is constructed from aluminum alloys with superior workmanship. Lifetime warranty against defects. (Only one caveat: Don't run this scoop through the dishwasher, as it will lose its magical defrosting properties). Made in the USA.
Zeroll is the official dipper of the Penn State Creamery, operated by the nation's oldest, best-known and largest educational program dedicated to the science and technology of ice cream. The beauty and utility of the Zeroll design has been recognized and displayed in the Museum of Modern Art’s Permanent Design Collection in New York City.
