A product that you might be tempted by is the Cuisipro Ice Cream Scoop & Stack. This little device is supposed to punch down into hard ice cream and pull up a perfect cylinder of ice cream, about the diameter of an ice cream cone. Then you push a button to dispense the ice cream.
It sounds kind of cool, but it just does not work. If the ice cream is very hard, you kill yourself trying to push it in; if it’s at all soft, it goes in and won’t come out. Even if you get it to come out, it never has that perfect shape you see on the box, looking fancy on top of a dessert. For $15, don’t waste your money.
Does presentation matter to you when it comes to serving ice cream?
