Homemade ice creams are treats well worth making, since you can customize the flavors and mix-ins to suit your tastes and create the perfect ice cream flavor every time. One of the biggest problems with homemade ice cream is storage. Most homemade ice cream ends up being chilled or stored in bowls covered with plastic wrap, tupperware containers or other makeshift ice cream tubs. The problem with these containers is that they’re not always freezer-safe, which means that your ice cream can end up with some unwanted ice crystals in it, and they’re usually a bulky shape that makes it difficult to fit them in the freezer without displacing a lot of other stuff.
The Glide-a-Scoop Ice Cream Tub from Tovolo just might be the perfect ice cream storage container. The long, slim design holds a surprising amount of ice cream and its 1.5-qt capacity is large enough to hold a big batch from a standard ice cream maker. The container is low profile and is easy to tuck into the freezer and the containers can also be stacked, if you are making or storing multiple batches of ice cream. The design of this tub also makes it exceptionally easy to create smooth scoops of ice cream by running your scoop (warmed in a little warm water for easier scooping) straight down the center of the tub. The container is double walled for insulation and has an airtight lid that snaps into place to protect your ice cream between scoops.
