Add a multi-purpose dough scraper to your kitchenware
Dough scrapers are useful for baking cakes and achieving consistent baking results. Below you’ll find an overview of why your kitchen shouldn’t be without this utensil and what you should be aware of when purchasing a scraper.
What is a dough scraper?
A dough scraper is a gadget with a rectangular-shaped end, often used for baking. It can be put to different uses, scraping the remaining mixture out of the bowl or spreading out cream across the base of a cake, for example. Most high-quality dough scrapers are made from silicone so that they can adapt to the shape of the bowl. No kitchen should be without this handy cooking tool.
How to use a dough scraper and the benefits it can offer you: an overview
A dough scraper helps you perform different actions when baking cakes, pies and the like.
Scraping the dough out of the baking tray
Dough scrapers have a rectangular-shaped end so you can get into every corner of your dish and scrape every last bit of dough out into the cake pan. This means that no food is wasted and every last drop of dough mixture is used for your cake.
Smoothing out cream and frosting
Do you want to make a cake with a cream filling or coated in chocolate icing? Then a dough scraper is just the right gadget for creating smooth, even layers. Without this tool, you’d have to use a knife, which is often not a wide enough implement to achieve an even result.
A dough scraper can even come in handy for making the dough itself. It’s perfect for mixing up the milk, eggs, flour and salt until the dough is smooth in consistency.
What you should look for when buying a dough scraper?
These practical baking aids come in all different designs. Read on to find out what to look for when purchasing a dough scraper.
Dough scrapers are used directly in the pot or bowl and so should be made from non-scratch material to avoid damaging any surface coatings.
Dough scrapers should preferably be long and thin so that they can also reach into deep mixing bowls.
Flexibility to adapt to different bowl shapes
Dough scrapers used to be made from rigid materials, but modern scrapers are flexible so that they can adapt to the shape of the bowl when mixing and scraping out any remaining dough. Not only does this make everything less effort for you, but you’ll also be able to get at every last bit of dough.

Your cooking tools should always go with the design of your kitchen, and the dough scrapers available on the ZWILLING online store are timeless in design.

Hanging dough scrapers
Perhaps you’d like to hang your dough scraper up so it’s ready to grab when you need it? If so, make sure you opt for one with the right handle.
