Ladles/Spoodles


We had a great spoodle at our pizzeria that had a nice curved bottom that was perfect for saucing pizzas. The spoodle recently broke and I've only been able to find replacements with flat bottoms that only push the sauce to the outside. What types of spoodles/ladles do you use?

These are the ones I have. My favorite is the one on the left. The two left-most ones are pretty similar.

I use 6 & 8oz ladles. Works great and no need to weigh/measure the sauce amount.

I have a preference for the flat ones, the two on the left, even though they don't hold as much sauce. They do a better job of spreading the sauce. I took a close look at the ones they used at Totonno's and Grimaldis when I was there and they used something similar.

The ladel, while it holds a lot of sauce, has a very rounded bottom. Because of this, it doesn't spread the sauce as easily because the part of the spoon touching the dough is much smaller.
