Great Kitchen Tools: Pastry Scraper

A pastry scraper is one of the kitchen tools I use quite often.  I find that my pastry scraper is perfect for collecting cut up vegetables and herbs from my cutting board for soups, pastas, and casseroles and transferring them to my cooking pan, pot, or dish.

A pastry scraper is primarily used for moving and scraping dough from the surface of the counter in baking.  So, if you enjoy baking at all, a pastry scraper is a good tool to have on hand.

Scrapers can come in plastic, plastic and metal, and stainless steel models.  Since they are rather cheap, [most scrapers retail for under $10] it can also be an affordable addition to your kitchen gadget collection.
