Before you roll your eyes at a $45 spoon, you need to know this is a very special spoon, for ice cream. It uses your body heat to cut through your frozen favorite flavor, which makes your “scooping experience” effortless. The solid aluminum spoon has a thermal conductivity of 237 W/mK (watts per meter kelvin), so you’ll be slicing through your mint chocolate chip/vanilla/rocky road with ease, like an ice-cream-eating ninja. And, of course, if you are searching for a gift for someone that adores their ice cream, you now know what to get.
“Comes in 3 different styles: 01.vanilla has the archetypal egg-shaped tip, 02.chocolate features an angular tip that allows easy reach to the corner of the ice cream cup, and 03.strawberry is ideal for drilling into your sorbet with its fork-shaped tip.”
