If you’re simply making rolled ice cream once in a while at home, it’s not nearly as important to get a commercial-grade scraper to roll your ice cream. Metal scrapers are ideal for commercial rolled ice cream machines. However, many rolled ice cream pans for home use come with plastic or rubber spatulas that won’t damage your pan. If you need a replacement, make sure the new spatula you get is rigid and tapers off at the tip. That makes easy to lift the solidified ice cream off of the pan. Here are some quality rolled ice cream scrapers and spatulas you should consider.
