Not too long ago, I picked up a gadget that will probably make kids and cooks alike scream blasphemy: a bowl scraper.
Anyone that’s ever wandered into a kitchen just as a batch of cookies was being scooped out onto a cookie sheet knows what I’m talking about. The only thing that can keep the masses calm while waiting on the cookies is licking the bowl!
Am I crazy? Have I lost all connection to my childhood? Have I forgotten how to have fun in the kitchen? Or was I simply persuaded to pick up a bowl scraper because it sounded cool and cost a buck? Two outta four ain’t bad (I’ll let you pick!).
Not Much of a Gadget
The scraper by itself is not too much of anything. Its just a big piece of plastic with an edge. But put that edge to work and you’ve got the makings of another cookie in the oven!
Of course, I wanted to put my scraper to the test right away. Fortunately, I had just made my Sweet Potato Pudding which leaves a fair amount of food behind, even when the bowl is scraped with a spoon.
Sorry kiddies! There’ll be no bowl licking here!
