TSUBAME Ice Cream Scooper




◆ heat-conducting aluminum spoon◆

Ice cream just taken out from the freezer is frozen hard and not an easy task to try to scoop out and to eat. 

But, this Ice cream scooper may solve your frustration with a unique solution. You don’t need to wait till your ice cream becomes softer.


The ice cream scooper is crafted from solid aluminum, a metal of high thermal conductivity. That quality allows it to channel its scooper's body heat towards the leading edge of the utensil, helping to melt your ice cream and producing a perfect scoop every time.

Simple shape of the handle fits right into your palm. And the spoon has a standard curved edge to cut into hard ice cream cleanly and smoothly. It is designed to better dig up the last bits from the bottom of the container.  

The item is NOT dishwasher safe. It’s made of aluminum, which reacts to dishwashing detergent. As long as you wash it by hand, you can expect it to last decades.

The material of ordinary spoon is stainless steel, its thermal conductivity is 16 to 27 W/(m∙K). On the other hand, the thermal conductivity of aluminum is approximately 237 W/(m∙K), which is nine to fifteen times as high as that of stainless steel. We can see that aluminum conveys heat extremely well.
