I thought this seemed pretty flimsy when I picked it up in the store, but I needed a cookie scoop desperately and quickly. I should have trusted my gut because after scooping about a dozen it broke. The metal scrapper somehow became misaligned, and only scraped half the bowl. My husband was able to fix it, momentarily, but then it broke again after two cookies. And after fixing it yet again, the metal,scraper just fell out. I was able to use it to make somewhat uniform cookies by using it to scoop dough, but then using a second spoon to scoop the dough out of the first scoop. Better than absolutely nothing, but not by much.
