There are some tools in your “batterie de cuisine” (French for “collection of cooking tools”...who says this site is not educational :-)) that you just take for granted. A bowl scraper is one of those. It’s not sexy, it’s not particularly innovative, but it’s incredibly useful. There is no better way to get every last drop out of a mixing bowl than with a bowl scraper: it hugs the shape of the bowl and really scrapes it clean, it also helps mix the ingredients in the bowl really thoroughly...neither a spoon nor a spatula does the job as well.
So what makes a humble bowl scraper into a Cool Tool? At a minimum it has to have a good shape that mimics the shape of your bowl. Then it should be flexible enough to scrape out your bowl: feeling like you’re rubbing fingernails on a blackboard, but not so flexible that it can’t get the mixture out of your bowl. And finally, it should be comfortable to hold. But sometimes there’s even more…
The Joseph Joseph “Duo Bake” elevates the humble bowl scraper by magnetically pairing it with a stainless steel dough cutter, another humble tool I can‘t do without. I use this not only to portion dough for bread, or rolls, or cookies, or pies or …. But it also helps gather any cut or chopped ingredients and clean up your work surface by scraping up any excess ingredients. The dough cutter and bowl scraper fit together compactly and stay together magnetically to make for easy storage. Yes, Virginia, the combination of a humble bowl scraper and a dough cutter can be a Cool Tool, when well-thought out and designed like this one.
