As the holidays approach, I’m sharing a few gift ideas. These are either products we own and love, or products we would love to acquire 🙂
Oxo Good Grips Cookie Scoop
A Great Gift For: Bakers, especially with kids who like to help
Price: ~$13 at Amazon
I’m not a huge kitchen gadget person and for a long time I thought cookie scoops were unnecessary extravagances, but once I got one, I was so glad to have it and have never looked back. It makes scooping cookies soo much faster than the old “two spoon” method. I use mine all the time when I make our favorite Banana Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins. Also, when the kids want to help, they can manipulate the tool pretty easily (I have to assist my 3 year old a bit) and it helps move that process along.
If someone you know likes to bake drop cookies, I’m sure they’d love a scoop as well. I own the medium (linked above), which is just right for most applications. I wouldn’t mind having a small sized scoop as well, although it’s more of a “nice to have” for me.
I highly recommend the Oxo brand. After a few years of use, mine did fall apart, but Oxo has a great warranty — I contacted them, sent back my old one and received a brand new one in the mail. You can find these scoops at numerous houseware stores as well as online at Amazon.
