I LOVE learning new shaping techniques, and although I'm not as good as the big boys here's Paul the bakers way at The Baker Boys in Hook
The most useful bread making tool, hands down.
I use these for literally everything but by far, they are most useful when kneading. The most common mistake I find when people are making bread is dusting the dough with additional flour when kneading it to stop it sticking to the table. This then tightens up the dough making for a dense and heavy loaf. Use your scraper to release the dough from the table every once in a while completely cutting out the need to add extra flour and you’ll be well on your way to bread success!
The Bake with Jack dough scraper has two straight edges for cutting and scraping, and a long curved edge for unsticking dough from your bowl. Perfect flexibility.
