Kitchen scrapers are not really necessary when it comes to cooking; however, if you want to move a little faster in the kitchen you’ll get yourself one. Most kitchen scrapers have multiple purposes; some double up as bowl scrapers, others are dough cutters, and they aid in icing cakes.
The overall concept of a kitchen scraper is to get more of your product off of something and put it in another. Here’s mine:
I use my scraper to core apples and other hard fruit with cores, crush garlic, scoop all the ingredients off my board, chop lettuce, and spread icing on the side of cakes. If you don’t have one, buy one or get someone to get it for you. It’s a great tool in the kitchen and it serves multiple purposes.
