Bench Scraper

A bench scraper is a valuable tool the may be used for many bread, pastry & cookie techniques. Comprised of metal with either a sturdy resin or wooden handle, they measure approximately 5 1/4 x 4 1/4-inches. Bench scrapers are used by bakers to portion bread loaves & roll dough as well as slice through discs of cookie & pastry crust dough. Once tasks are complete, they make cleaning work surfaces effortless as the scraper may be used to collect flour & minuscule pieces of dough by swiping it over the bench or wooden pastry board. A bakers bench is an essential preparation table often times made of a thick wooden surface with sturdy stainless steel legs found in patisserie shops & restaurants around the globe. Every kitchen should have a bench scraper in their tool collection.

How To Use Bench Scrapers

Bench scrapers are just the right tool to use when slicing chilled butter doughs & more. The blunt metal end is much safer for you & the surfaces over which it is used compared to a sharp knife. They may be found through a quick internet search from many retailers that specialize in bakeware.

Bench scrapers are particularly helpful in the bakeshop when working with sticky doughs. With a bit of extra flour, it can aide in kneading procedures as in the case of Buttermilk Bolillo dough. Sprinkle a little flour just under one side of the dough & over the metal portion of the tool, then place it between the work surface & the dough. Lift the dough towards the center then repeat the process around the entire circumference. Continue the task according to specific recipe instructions.
