Food scoops are some of my most-used and most-helpful kitchen tools.  There are so many different sizes, it can be tricky to find the perfect ones that will serve multiple purposes.  I’ve tested out a bunch and am excited to share my 3 essential scoop sizes and what I use each one for.

My favorite scoops are from Orson Gygi.  They are made of high-quality stainless steel, dishwasher-safe, and very affordable.

One of the best features of using food scoops is that they make perfectly even portion sizes.  I find that these 3 scoops are all I need for a variety of purposes.

Mini Scoop (#60)

The mini scoop is probably my most frequently used scoop.  It holds about 1 Tablespoon.  I use this mini scoop for:

Medium Scoop (#40)

This medium-sized scoop is great to have around and holds about 1.75 Tablespoons.  I use this medium scoop for:

  • Cookies
  • Pancakes
  • Meatballs

Large Scoop (#20)

You’ll be surprised at how much you use this large scoop!  It holds about 3.5 Tablespoons.  I use this large scoop for:

  • Regular-sized muffins
  • Ice cream
  • Food portions (ie mashed potatoes or rice)

I hope this sheds some light on food scoops and allows you to see what a beneficial kitchen tool they are!  If you’re going to get any 3 sizes, I would recommend the #60, #40 and #20.
