Cuisipro Ice Cream Scoop & Stack

How's this for a nifty kitchen gadget? This ice cream scoop creates little cylinder blocks of ice cream that you can stack just for fun in ice cream cones, or you can use to make more elegant desserts. The brand is Cuisipro; their website indicates that in my area, their products can be found in Sur La Table, Crate & Barrel, and The Container Store. Or, of course, there's always good old Amazon.

In any case, at $14.99, this could be the one centerpiece stocking stuffer -- especially the red or green ones -- among some less expensive items, without actually breaking the bank completely (although I note an in-store price might be higher than Amazon's). The pink scoop, or the red one I saw at the Sur La Table website, would also be romantic for Valentine's Day. The product description says that it works well on hard ice cream, but I do note that a customer review suggests dipping it in hot water between scoops to prevent sticking.

What: Cuisipro Scoop and Stack Ice Cream Scoop
Where: Amazon, Sur La Table, Crate & Barrel, The Container Store
How much (as of today's post): $14.99 (plus shipping)
