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.

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.

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

Do you have sizes chat of Vollrath stainless steel disher scoops?
David Buchanan said on Oct 12:
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.
Dr. T [220.127.116.11] said on Jul 26:
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"
