Globule warming: The Deni Electric Ice Cream Scoop, introduced in 2005, is a one-piece stand-up unit that looks like a giant spoon in a hooded cape. The aluminum scooper is covered with nonstick coating; the ergonomic handle has santoprene grip strips. The cord is 76 inches long. Only the spoon portion can be washed (by hand). What’s the difference: Plug it in and the spoon gets warm in minutes. The plastic collar keep drips from traveling down your hands. What we thought: More of a novelty act than a practical tool. The warmed spoon melts the ice cream. That’s not only cheating, but it’s also messy. How much: About $15 at; $24 at Target.com and
