This bench scraper, also known as a pastry or dough scraper, is a professional-quality pastry tool. It's great for portioning dough into right-sized pieces for rolling and forming dough and scraping down work surfaces to reduce waste. The beveled front edge easily cuts firmer dough into smaller pieces for easier handling and works just as easily for gooier dough. Portion dough for bread, biscuits, rolls, cookies, pastries, pizza, and more. This bench scraper with an easy-hold handle is simple to use. Prepare dough and form into a ball or tube shape, then slice as needed. For cleaning dough from work surfaces, run the blade edge across the surface to scrape up stuck-on dough. Also great for lifting and maneuvering cookies from a cookie sheet onto a cooling rack, cutting brownies into evenly sized pieces, chopping firm vegetables, like celery, and more. Made from 100-percent natural bamboo, Mrs. Anderson's Bench Scraper is lightweight, strong, and less absorbent than wood. Will not scratch surfaces. Bamboo is a fast-growing, fully sustainable alternative to traditional materials for more sustainable living practices. Hand wash only.
