Another useful tool for home cooks and professional bakers is the dough scraper. Usually a dough scraper consists of a rectangular metal piece that is topped with a wooden or plastic handle, and has numerous applications in baking. The dough scraper can be used while you are kneading dough on an open surface to combine bits of flour that falls to the sides. If there is any dough that has dried up while kneading, you can use the scraper to move it to the side so it doesn't combine with the rest of your dough. Of course, another practical application of the dough scraper is to evenly divide dough quickly and easily. You can use a knife, but the dough scraper is a much quicker tool that keeps your baking efficient.
Chefs all over the country love using the dough scraper because of it's functions with dough, but also because it's a great cleanup tool. After your dough is kneaded, just pass the scraper on the prep surface to remove flour or dry bits left behind.
