The Sizzling Scooper is the brainchild of Matty Benedetto of Unnecessary Inventions. It’s an ice cream spoon with an integrated lighter beneath for melting hard ice cream before scooping. Is it practical? Probably not. Is it necessary? Almost certainly not. Come on, Matty; you should have at least used a torch lighter for maximum melting capabilities.
I wish Matty would have provided some sort of warning before I decided to try making my own Sizzling Scooper with a metal spoon and burnt my lips after heating the ice cream too long. Can you even imagine how embarrassing it was to explain what happened to my doctor? Dammit, Matty, this is all your fault!
Alternatively, dip a metal spoon in a glass of hot water before scooping hard ice cream. That’s what I used to do before Matty put this idiotic idea in my head. Can I sue? The emotional distress this has caused has got to be worth something. At least a free Sizzling Scooper.
