Ice Cream Scoop Question

I have had several people ask if there is anything they can do to "fix" their ice cream scoop after they put it in the dishwasher. No, they didn't read the instructions first. I told them I had no idea, but I would check with you guys. One lady said she was even getting black stuff on her ice cream. Duh, throw it away and buy a new one, but I didn't say that. :)
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you!

I don't know if there is a way to "fix" it. The black stuff does not come off once you put it in the dishwasher. I have a friend that says hers still works but like you said...sometimes black gook comes off in your ice cream. I would say...have a show and you can get a new one free!

I think it might have voided the warranty when they "misused" it by not following directions...just a thought.

The black stuff is the metal oxidizing and coming off, or so I've been told. The dishwasher strips the clear, protective coating from the scoop. It isn't fixable. I've unwittingly left my scoop in water over night. It grew "barnacles" for lack of a better description. I'm extra careful now to wash and dry immediately after using.

I'm rather surprised that PC sells such a great product that turns out to be so pervious to water damage. I love its design and performance, but I do NOT like having to treat it so delicately. :(

Wal Mart has an ice cream scoop that looks very similar to ours, and has the same de-icing gel in it. It says on the package that it's dishwasher safe. I'm half-tempted to buy it for 4 bucks to see if it is as good as or better than ours.

On another note, on my customers' receipts, if they order the dipper, I write "HANDWASH ONLY" in red next to the item number.

Good idea:) I may start doing that; also with the cookware!

Hum, I put my in the DWr all the time and do not have any problems with it. It works just a well as the day I bought it.

Great idea!!
I'll try to remember to do that too!

I've had several people say theirs turned dark, etc too... Does it still work this way? I've heard both yes and no...

I would love for PC to improve it's quality... It is an AWESOME dipper... but something needs to change to make it so we are pampered and not the dipper!
