That pastry scraper you don’t think you use nearly enough, can moonlight as an effective scoop and transport of your chopped food to a bowl, pot, or a pan. Just slide the scraper under the pile of the pieces, and shift them onto the blade. You’ll see just how much more effective this process is than scooping by hand, over the blade of your knife, or lifting your entire cutting board to transport what you’ve chopped (which can get messy). I’m a huge fan of this pastry scraper – but other ones should do just fine.
