A Dough Scraper is a tool used primarily to clean surfaces of dough and flour.

Traditionally, they consist of a relatively wide blade, about 5 inches by 3 inches tall (13 x 8 cm), with a straight edge. The blade is usually stainless steel, but can be plastic. Attached to the blade lengthwise is a handle that may be the same material, or may be another material such as plastic or wood.

One piece plastic ones are now made, too. They have a straight edge at the bottom, and are rounded at the top. Some people with expensive countertops prefer using the plastic ones on their countertops. The plastic ones are also more flexible for scraping dough from bowls or basins that the dough has been risen in.

Dough Scrapers can also be used for cutting dough into pieces, scooping up pieces of dough or ingredients such as diced onion, and to clean rolling pins with.

Most are dishwasher safe.
