can one user an ice cream scoop on Shabbat?


Somebody told me it’s assur because of boneh. And is the hahaha different for Sephardim?


As far as  I know it is permitted to use an ice cream scoop on shabbos. The reason is, that although we don’t make special shapes out of food on shabbos, because of binyan b’ochlim, however simple shapes such as a square circle or triangle are permitted. They are not considerd as if a specific form was made. The poskim say that an ice cream scoop is also considered a simple shape and permitted.
