I can't believe I have cooked and baked all these decades without one! I can be a bit frugal (okay a lot frugal) so always tell myself I don't need all kinds of gadgets and helpers. Well this simple tool has become my daily must have!
I bought it because I've become quite addicted to baking artisan breads so it's perfect for scraping the dough from my counter. But it has far more uses than that. I also use it when making pie crusts since I don't like to over-flour my crusts. I love the markers on the end for measuring -- what a simple thing but so useful. I now use this same tool every single day after I've chopped / diced my vegetables. How simple to simply scrape the works off the board into the bowl, complete with the bits of vegetable juice that would otherwise be slurped up by the cutting board. This simple tool has so many uses and makes things such a breeze, I can't believe it took me this long to finally buy one. Love it and you'll love it too. In fact, it makes a perfect hostess gift when wrapped up in a pretty tea towel -- way more practical and long-lasting compared to a bottle of wine (though I love wine). Enjoy!
