It was while working in Pittsburgh as a porter that Cralle noticed that ice cream was difficult to dispense. It tended to stick to spoons and ladles, usually requiring use of two hands and at least two implements to serve. Classic lever-action models to distinctive and valuable shape-molding scoops were design and the the US Patent and Trademark Office issued 241 patents for ice cream dippers or scoops between 1878 and 1940.
