These are some of my favorite kitchen tools. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes. We own the 1 inch, 1.5 inch and 2 inch dishers.
-The smallest one I use for truffles, which gives me perfectly shaped truffles and cuts down on time and mess.
-The medium is usually used for cookies. We form them ahead of time and get the exact same cookie size every time.
-The large is used for cupcakes, muffins, biscuits, mashed potatoes, rice, and meatballs
