A dough cutter is a kitchen utensil often found in professional and home kitchens, which is primarily used in baking. Though there are several different possible designs for this utensil, it typically consists of a handle and a wide “blade” that comes from the handle and can be used to scrape and cut dough. The blade itself is not necessarily sharp, usually the same sharpness as a butter knife, but is thin enough to effectively get under dough and separate it quite effectively. Also called a bench knife or board scraper, a dough cutter is a valuable tool, since it can be used for a number of different purposes. The basic design of a dough cutter consists of a handle that is designed to be held by one hand and a blade that extends from the handle. This blade usually comes from the side of the handle, not the top like most other knives, and is fairly thin. The thinness is intended to allow the edge of the blade to get under dough and separate it more precisely. A dough cutter has an edge that is not necessarily sharpened, but due to the thinness of it, the edge can usually cut through dough quite well. This is important since the cutter can be used to separate larger loaves into smaller pieces. The thin edge of a dough cutter also allows it to more easily get under dough that is on a work surface, such as a wooden cutting board or marble countertop.
