Scoop well PDF Print E-mail
A very small, usually rectangular basin holding scoops and spades through which water constantly flows to clean them.  It is not an appeal to ice cream servers to do a good job.  Also known as a "dipwell."  The Dipwell Company, which makes thousands of scoop wells for companies large and small, including Baskin-Robbins and Dairy Queen, recently moved from Erie, Pennsylvania to Northampton, Massachusetts.  Officials of the company frequent Herrell's Ice Cream to make sure their equipment works properly.
