There's one tool you will see used in every class at The Chopping Block, from sweet to savory. This tool has as many names as it does uses: bench scraper, bench knife, dough scraper, or dough cutter. A dough scraper is helpful for cutting and dividing bread and pizza doughs. It's also handy for scraping off excess flour and sticky bits of pie dough from your countertop. A bench scraper helps you safely transport ingredients you have chopped on your cutting board to pans rather than using the blade of your knife, which can be dangerous.
