KitchenAid Smooth Glide Ice Cream Scoop Reviewed

KitchenAid Smooth Glide Ice Cream Scoop Reviewed
For decades I have fought the battle with scooping ice cream.  Recently, I purchased the KitchenAid Smooth Glide Scoop and I am here to tell you, it actually works!  Scooping ice cream or sherbet just got a whole lot easier for me.

I can't even begin to guess how many spoons I have bent trying to scoop ice cream without letting it thaw on the kitchen counter first.  I hate leaving the ice cream out on the counter to thaw for several reasons.  For one thing, if I want ice cream, I'm not very patient.  I want it right then.  Second, I hate having to wipe off the condensation ring the container leaves on my kitchen counter before I can enjoy my dessert.  Plus, I hate the "frost" coating on the top of my ice cream that is created when it has to refreeze.

I have tried several ice cream scoops over the years.  While they won't bend like a spoon, they have been laborious to use.  Sometimes even painful.  I simply don't have the gorilla strength required to scoop hardened ice cream with a half moon bowl shaped scooper.  However, the KitchenAid Smooth Glide Scoop makes me feel a lot stronger because I can immediately dish up a bowl of ice cream without doing any permanent damage to my silverware, my hand, my wrist, my arm or my shoulder.

KitchenAid Smooth Glide Scoop

 KitchenAid Smooth Glide Scoop, BlackCheck PriceIt is all in the design!  The handle is thick enough for me to grip without being too wide for me to hold.  In the picture, it looks like that is a flat handle, but it is only flat on the top.  It is curved underneath and fits perfectly in my hand, allowing me to firmly grip the scoop.

The scoop itself is slightly curved and easily glides through frozen ice cream.  I admit, I don't really care if the ice cream has a pretty shape.  It doesn't have to be a perfectly shaped ball for me to enjoy devouring it.  Obviously, if you plan to serve ice cream on a cone, you would need the old-fashioned half-moon bowl shaped ice cream scoop.  Me?  I would rather never eat ice cream on a cone again now that I can scoop my ice cream without hurting myself, or someone else.

Oh, and another great feature:  It is dishwasher safe and I do, indeed, wash mine in the dishwasher. 

I will keep my old bowl shaped ice cream scoop to use with batter for cupcakes, cookies, etc., but for ice cream, I choose the KitchenAid Smooth Glide Ice Cream Scoop!

  1. How wonderful to learn about an ice cream scoop that actually makes dishing up a bowl of my favorite frozen dessert easy and without strain. I no longer have the strength in my hands and arms to fight with solidly frozen ice cream, so am delighted to know there is a scoop that makes this simpler. And I am not surprised this scoop is by KitchenAid, a brand I've trusted for many years.

  2. Great to know ! I have several bent utensils in the ice cream graveyard - I agree, I am not a fan of letting the ice cream thaw just to scoop it out! Looking forward to purchasing this scoop 😀

  3. My favorite dessert is ice cream, but unless there's someone with better arm and wrist strength, and better muscles than I have to do it, it would take me forever to get enough chipped out to eat. This sounds like the perfect solution. Thanks for sharing this excellent review!

  4. I had to laugh at the 'bent spoons" comment. Me too! I thought I was the only one who ruined spoons in ice cream. I don't eat ice cream much anymore. But if I resume that habit, I will keep this scoop in mind.

  5. I'll have to be sure to get this, like you, we've bent a lot of spoons. Sure seems like a good product - but Kitchenaid makes excellent products imo, so no surprise I guess. Added to my list of gadgets.
