The main purpose of rice scoops is to provide a consistent, easy way to scoop fluffy rice either behind the scenes or at the tabletop. The art of serving food in Asian cultures has become as much a part of the presentation as the food itself and guests will appreciate the scoops that tie into your dinnerware theme. The spoons are created with a thin, wide bowl that is designed specifically for lifting large quantities of rice and preventing sticking to the spoon. These scoops are available in both ornamental and basic styles.
For a back of the house scoop, a sturdy stainless steel model is perfect. A long handle is ideal for dipping into large rice pots and rice warmers, and a measured bowl is essential in ensuring that the correct amount of rice is delivered with each serving. If too much rice is served with an entrée, the flavor of the dish could be washed away. If too little is served, guests may feel as though they do not have enough base substance. This spoon is the quick and efficient way of ensuring that your guests remain consistently satisfied.
For a more ornamental option, there are many rice scoops available that match different dinnerware collections. These scoops are made of lightweight, durable melamine that do not shatter or stain, so you can count on them for years of service. The subtle decorations on each one are small reminders of the artful addition to all Asian presentations; a tradition that takes its roots in intricate details.
