# Scoop-Disher Sizes

## Restaurant Disher Scoop Sizes (Ice Cream Scoop)

**Disher Scoop Sizes** (also called Ice Cream Scoops) are based upon the number of level scoops it takes to fill a 32 oz container. Below you'll find a chart for common restaurant disher scoops, what the number sizes mean, how many fluid ounces are in each, and how many scoops it takes to fill one cup. It should be noted that the yields do vary by manufacuter so if you are looking for an absolute true yield for food costing purposes your best bet is to actually measure the scoop which you use. Vollrath disher scoops are one of the most consistently accurate in regards to the chart below.

I have an iPad and cannot download the PDF file of the chart. Also, can you provide the bowl diameters of the smaller dishes?

Thanks

Chef Chris!Great info Chef!

DEE - we would multiple because we are trying to convert .914 Tbl into Tsp. If there are 3 Tsp in a Tbl then .914 Tbl = 2.74 Tsp. If we divide .914 by 3 the answer is .30 Tsp in a Tbl

To the April 25 comment: wouldn't you divide since the larger number was for the Tbl and there are 3 tsp in one Tbl?Great chart though!

Is it possible a size 8 scoop of purée chicken could be smaller than a size 10 or 12 scoop of potatoes?

Frustrated - There are 2.74 Tsp in a #70 scoop (2 3/4 Tsp if you round it slightly).

The calculation to figure this out is as follows:

this chart is worthless.

how many full tablespoons/teaspoons does each one hold.

I have a #70 and .057 doesn't help AT ALL

Love this chart! Printing it out and taping it inside my cabinet door! Recently purchased 3 scoops for doing cupcakes, cake balls, etc..wish I had had this chart! Purchasing the dishers would have been so much simpler knowing how much each size held! This chart helps me know the amount in TBSPs each disher holds! Awesome resource! Thank you!

Thanks for the feedback Susan!

This is a great list of disher sizes, with a broader range of scoop sizes than I've seen before. Thanks. I've printed it out for reference.

Jennie - The #5 and #4 must be hard to find, or no longer available. I've tried searching for them but with no luck.

Jennie,

Did you ever find the #5 scoop? I need 8 of them.

Thanks

Do you have sizes chat of Vollrath stainless steel disher scoops?

Thanks!

Jennie - all these food service vendors should carry them: Sysco, FSA, US Foods, Bargreen Ellingson. Also, Amazon.com may carry them, or if there is a Cash & Carry or other restaurant supply store in your area.

where do I buy #5 and #4 dishers?

Thanks Dr. T for the catch! The data has been corrected.

The capacity in cups for the #5 scoop appears to be wrong. I'm guessing it should be 0.8 cups, which would be more in line with the fl. oz, Tbsp, mL, and the number of scoops per cup.

Very helpful info about the bowl diameters! Thank-you. I'll work it into the table.

Would be very helpful to know the bowl diameter of each size. The following is what I've been able to dig up thus far.

#6 = 3"

#8 = 2 3/4"

#10 = 2 5/8"

#12 = 2 1/2"

#16 = 2 5/16"

#20 = 2 1/8"

#24 = 2"

#30 = 1 7/8"

#40 = 1 5/8"
