Father's Day Custom Scoop

Description: Surprise the people you care about with something you know they’ll use (perhaps more than they should!): a custom-engraved ice cream scoop by Zeroll. Creators of the first modern ice cream scoop, Zeroll can engrave initials (or anything else!) into one of their famous scoops or spades for less than $20. About ZEROLL Established in 1935, the Zeroll Co. created the first modern ice cream scoop. Recognizing a need to improve the existing product, Zeroll engineered a revolutionary design for a non-mechanical ice cream scoop made of cast aluminum with fluid inside the handle. This unique application allowed heat to transfer from the user’s hand to the ice cream scoop, warming the liquid and defrosting the ice cream. In addition to having no breakable parts, this scoop enabled users to roll the ice cream into a ball, generating 10%-20% more servings per gallon – a main selling point, especially during the Great Depression. The Original Zeroll® Ice Cream Scoop has had no substantial design changes 1935 and is still manufactured in the USA. The beauty and utility of the Zeroll® Ice Cream Scoop is displayed in the Museum of Modern Art’s Permanent Design Collection in New York City. From its humble start in a garage 77 years ago, The Zeroll Co. is proud of its heritage and its growth, and will continue to pioneer within the world of smallwares for years to come. www.Zeroll.com
