Here’s the scoop: we know our Appetite for Health friends love their kitchen gadgets (as do we), so we’ve lined up a giveaway of Zeroll EZ Dishers (awesome, professional quality scoops)! Three lucky AFH fans will each win a set of 2 EZ Dishers (a $36 value). Find out how to enter, below.
Ok, if you want to feel like a pro in the kitchen, it helps to have good-quality gadgets. These are just such gadgets. Made by the Zeroll Company (established in 1935, so clearly they know what they’re doing), the EZ Disher is a hand-operated food portioner—in other words, a scoop. Only this isn’t one of those gets-rusty-fast and break-in-a-month scoops you find at the discount store. These “portioners” are commercial quality—sturdy, solid, highly functional and comfortable to use. These are the folks who designed the first modern ice cream scoop (the kind with no moving parts and liquid in the handle that heats up from the user’s hand and helps make the ice cream easier to scoop).
If you’ve ever worked in a professional kitchen, you know that scoops are distinguished by a number and not by the amount they hold. A #8 scoop holds a 1/2-cup portion of food, and a #16 scoop holds a 1/4-cup portion (just an FYI). Some scoops also have colored handles to help distinguish them more easily in the kitchen (Zeroll’s do). The company sent me a couple of their EZ Dishers to try out at home, and I loved how they felt in my hand—very comfortable to use and substantial. Using a scoop can be a good portion-control technique, and it also makes dividing things like potato- or egg-salad, mashed potatoes or sorbet, much easier to do uniformly. Plus, it’s just fun to make a professional-looking plate. (My tuna salad looked nicer when portioned out onto the greens using the EZ Disher.) Using the blue one (a #16) made me feel like Martha Stewart when portioning out bran muffin batter.
