    I know I need a good scoop.  I have a Zeroll copy but I'm thinking there must be something better.


    Any tricks?

    Just take the whole carton with you to the sofa.

    A hot water rinse in between each scoop. Works perfectly.

    * side note....remove ice cream from the freezer 5-7 minutes before you scoop.

    Everyone at my house is getting sterling silver dessert spoons stamped with words of wisdom.

    I stick the carton in the micro for about 5 sec and then let sit until just softened around the edges.

    This always rewards me with a nice scoop that is still mostly frozen.

    Blue Bell Mexican Praline is my very favorite.

    Huge chunks of the best praline I have ever enjoyed suspended butter pecan ice cream.

    Heaven.

    The best scoop I've ever used has been a tupperware scoop I bought 20plus years ago. Still have it.

    We've used one line this for years. Serious scoops. Not those dainty little balls. :eek:)
