Finally an ice cream scoop that's taller than the carton. The handle could be a little fatter, but otherwise it's great.

This container keeps my brown sugar fresher and softer than any other type of container I've tried. I've always used a disc, but the one included in this product does a much better job than ones I had previously used.

I recently made spaghetti sauce and used this item to Chop & Mash the ground beef as it browned. The meat was only partially thawed and I couldn't believe how easy this made the job. I would recommend this item to anyone that ever cooks!

This product is wonderful when you have a small quantity of pasta or other food and don't want to use a regular size colander. It's also easier to store.

These are great, but I think I would like them to be just a little longer. Definitely beats using a big fork and a spoon!
