Most people use the term "Spoodle" to refer to any portion control device that is based on the combination of a spoon and a ladle. However, the term "Spoodle" is a trademark of the Vollrath Corporation for its particular portion control devices. If someone's portion control device (or "food control device") is not called a Spoodle, it is a knockoff of the Vollrath product. I have researched portion control devices and one of the confusing things I discovered is that many manufacturers have color coded devices but the color coding system can vary from one company to the next. So, one shouldn't rely on color as an indication of the size of the bowl.
