Re: What do you call a scraper?

andy, please come back, un-huffed!  I thought raclette is a kind of cook-it-yourself cheese dish and that the implements are like miniature fish slices.

Anyway, I've got it now, a raclette or a spatule or a maryse......

A spat-tool is more practical.

Re: What do you call a scraper?

To be really pernicketty - if you want to use this thing to scrape out , eg, the remains of cake batter from a mixing bowl, you need a blade that's flexible. So rubber is a good material. Also a soft plastic , or the type of silicone which is used now for some baking tins.

and yes a raclette is also a cheese dish, a cheese type, and the thing you use for scraping the suds off the window or shower door when you clean them

Re: What do you call a scraper?

So............here I am again!  Yes, never thought about one of my credit cards., JJ.  And I do really, really use one for cleaning the windscreen of snow and ice.

Anyway, many thanks, everyone.  I was in Netto this afternoon and I saw a spatule and a "brusher" in a pack for 4 euros so I have bought that.

Not that I need a pastry brush because I have a state-of-the-art silicone and brush chrome affair (well, why shouldn't I?) and so I have a spare brusher if anyone is desperate for one!
