I suspect the Cuisipori Ice Cream Scoop and Stack will primarily be wielded by sullen ice cream parlor gang bosses who begrudge you every frozen fat strand in that heaping kugel of chocolate chip mint served on a skin-blistering summer day, but for private use, it’s genius. Simply plunge the scooper into a bucket of ice cream, twist and lift out a perfectly ovular 3.75 ounce scoop… precisely the width of an ice cream cone. Since the top is flat, this will facilitate structurally sound ice cream towers.
Here in Berlin, we tend to prefer gelato, which can be easily scooped up with a spatula, but I still nurse my American fondness for hard ice cream… and a mounting frustration, even in abstract, of scraping a spoon across the surface of a frozen block of Neapolitan recovered from my freezer’s paleolithic ice core. $14.99 seems a small price to pay to forego all of that.
