We’re gonna need a little help here. A Kickstarter for SVANKi, a wireless, heated ice cream scoop is either genius or ridiculous. It’s one or the other — no in between, and we need to take a vote.
Sure, on one hand, when it comes to unnecessary gadgets, the kitchen is full of them — looking at you Zoku ice pop maker and dedicated hot dog toaster. But when it comes down to it, hard ice cream is a drag.
Sure, you could put the container in the microwave for a few seconds, but it always gets way too melty with that method. A standard ice cream scoop soaked in some hot water would also do the trick.

The true value of the SVANKi heated ice cream scoop might be the tagline, which conjures the most delicious image: “SVANKi heats up electrically and easily scoops through the hardest ice cream like a hot knife through butter.”
Now we want butter and ice cream. So far more than 600 backers have pledged over $44,000 to make the SVANKi a reality.
