Rockler Ice Cream Paddle Turning Kit

Paddle style for added leverage and cutting power—shallow contour lets you empty it by scraping against the edge of a bowl.

Our exclusive Ice Cream Paddle has the leverage and broad cutting edge to cut through the coldest cream. Sometimes called an ice cream spade, ice cream paddles have a shallower contour that allows you to empty the ice cream by scraping it against the edge of your bowl or dish. While ball-type scoops are great for filling cones, spades are perfect for filling bowls or for serving ice cream over a hot slice of pie without it rolling off onto the plate or floor. You can also use the back of the paddle for smoothing ice cream cakes and other delectable deserts. Made from stainless steel for maximum corrosion-resistance. Boasts a fine polish. Turn your own handle on the lathe for a customized gift, or keep it for your own kitchen. Turning blank not included.


Features:

  • Includes a 5/16-18 threaded insert—simply drill a hole in your blank, thread in the insert, and thread the scoop onto the turned handle
  • Easily disassembled for cleaning or to swap the handle
  • Made from stainless steel for the ultimate in corrosion resistance
  • For the handle, we recommend a strong hardwood such as maple, cherry, walnut, oak, or yellow birch. Of the imported hardwoods bubinga, purpleheart, gongola alves and cocobolo make wonderful handles

This is a bit pricey but it is a scoop of all scoops. Takes a big serving out every time.

Ice Cream Paddle
Turned my first handle for an ice cream paddle, and I was pleasantly surprised when I used it for the first time how much better it actually is for scooping out ice cream from a carton than a standard scoop. I ordered a couple more paddles to turn for friends/family.

The appearance of the paddle was looked shinier than other ones I have gotten from other sources which made it look cheaper. Also the size of the drill bit recommended for drilling the hole (1/2") is to big to get a good fit for the anchor in the handle for the paddle to screw into. Also there was price break for increased number of kits purchased. And there was consideration for getting a break in shipping. I will search for another supplier when I need to reorder.

Just ok
I purchased this with the intentions of turning a handle out of resin. My first attempt, my hole I drilled was too big. I went by the instructions provided. Second attempt was a smaller hole and when I attempted to screw the sleeve in the hole it broke. My third attempt will be to drill and tap the resin with the hopes that it will accept the threaded ice cream paddle. Good luck. By the way, it did seem to go in to wood alright.

Purchased 2, two weeks ago - turned both handles up in the last week today I showed them to at least one customer and she bought the sample on the spot! Decided I needed more to make.

TERESA C on Nov 25, 2019
What handle material is recommended for the ice cream paddle?
Larry R on Dec 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There really is no recommended material. You can use anything you can turn. The paddle head unscrews from the handle for washing so there’s no danger of it getting destroyed in a dishwasher.
