The scoop I use for regular size cupcakes is almost exactly 1/4 cup.

Sorry, I can't help with the other sizes.

For weeks I have been looking for the old timey type ice cream scoop with the lever to fill my cupcake liners. I have looked in many commericial supply catalogs, found one and it was $16 plus S&H, and decided I'll stick with my little individual (1/4 cup) measuring cup. Might be a little messy at times, but it works just fine!

Liniti -

Have you tried checking into restaurant supply stores near you? Many of them will sell to the general public. And you will pay a lot less for them in the showroom than you will online.

I go directly to the restaurant supply stores near me, and I have never paid more than $9.00 for any of the scoops I use.

Are you in Transylvania county, too? My friend, Billie, lives out there. She teaches at a vocational high school out there.

I just wanted to post that I just bought a 2 oz scoop (1/4 cup size) and found that it is probably just a little bit too much for my cupcake/muffin pan. I had to basically level the scoop and it was still a smidge overfilled. The cuppies had a very large dome. The rest. supply store had a 1 3/4 oz size scoop as well. I am thinking that one is going to be perfect. I think the 2oz one will be perfect for those paper nut cups/souffle cups. But this is just my experience. I don't like having to level. I would rather have the smaller size and just smear it against the side of the bowl to level it, which I think would then make it close to 2 oz. I am sure I will still get use out of it. It certainly makes scooping cupcake batter a little less messy.
