A pastry scraper, which is also sometimes called a bench scraper, is a kitchen utensil designed to help scrape surfaces clear of debris, particularly in areas where you have been working with dough. It is a thin flat, often stainless steel, piece of metal which can be very useful for lifting dough or cutting it while you are making pastry or breads. Pastry scrapers may have either a sharp or a dull edge. Those with a curved top can double as a tool to help scrape the inside of a bowl. Scrapers may also have a small measure on the edge to aid in helping the baker measure portion or section size. Important features include the comfort of the grip and the tool’s potential to double as a food chopper.
