Deni 5111 electric ice cream scoop with internal heating system is an ergonomically designed kitchen utensil that operates as easily as plugging it in, heating it up and scooping the ice cream. The santoprene grip has an attached drip-guard, which also promotes curling perfect scoops with minimum efforts. The special coating (non-stick) facilitates an easy cleaning as well as retains the temperature extensively
A handy product, the 5111 ice cream scoop eliminates the waiting period for hard ice cream to soften enough. Built to last for years.
The Deni 5111 ice cream scoop definitely makes things easier than that with a mere spoon. This rules out the chances for serving the ice creams as soft as clouds and in bits and pieces instead of in single, dense scoops. Quite a brilliant invention, the only comparison that stands is knife through butter; the internal heating mechanism is fast enough to get the scoop prepared for use within minutes and keep it functional over several minutes after the power supply has been cut off.
The Deni 5111 scooping utensil is indeed a product that’s handy and saves the host’s image. Instead of putting in tons of muscle power through spoons or waiting to mellow it down, the Deni ice cream scoop softens the area through which it moves; the longer heat retaining capacity of the scoop also melts partially the surface of the scooped ice cream to create perfect globes. But the Deni scoop loses half its potency in case there is a power failure; in that case, the only option remains is going all manual.
And contrary to the few minutes as claimed; the scoop must stay plugged in at least for five to seven minutes to do a good job. The construction of the apparatus is quite futuristic but way apart from the flimsy types generally available; it is bound to stay functional over a longer period.
All in All:
The Deni 5111 is superb, especially when an August afternoon lures to the freezer. Those with a priority for a tool capable of digging flawlessly into ice creams harder than the usual home variety shall find the Deni scoop a boon to get things done without exercising the muscles. Comfortable, innovative and definitely several steps ahead from the treat with hot water varieties, Deni’s plug-in ice cream scoop is for the person with accurate sense of timing.
A minute less and the scoop won’t cut through and a minute more, the usual gooey results. It’s not burly but quite heavy-duty; there are no quirky features – in short, it’s the perfect equipment for the ice cream lovers who love to learn using a utensil properly to unleash its fullest prowess. Perhaps, Deni should think about adding a little more of the curve to the scooping spoon to make the 5111 ice cream scoop more acceptable to the mass.
