Plastic Bowl Scrapers: Good For More Than Scraping Bowls!

We also like that we can use this tool to portion, scoop, and scrape food from pans and dishes without fear of scratching nonstick coating. The scraper makes a quick job of pushing purees through a tamis or strainer when we want a smoother consistency and the plastic won’t tear the fine mesh.

These kinds of scrapers can also be found made of nylon or silicone and are readily available at most kitchen supply stores. Here are a few online sources:

• Plastic Bowl Scraper for $.80 at
• Ateco Bowl Scraper for $.99 at Cakes by Sam
• Chef Craft Plastic Dough Scraper for $.99 at Hardware and Tools
• Nylon Dough Scraper for $6.20 at
• Silicone Dough Scraper for $7.95 at King Arthur Flour

How do you use your plastic scraper?
