Rolling Pins

Whether you craft your own, whether it’s made of wood or metal, ceramic or granite, you need some sort of rolling pin in your kitchen. Lets take a look at some of the best out there to help you decide.

Knives and Spatulas

When we think of baking and what sort of equipment we need, we often overlook the importance of knives. Everyone wants to recommend a Kitchen Aid mixer to you because they’re expensive. But, not entirely necessary. A good knife, and an offest spatula, however are indespensible.

Pie Plates and Cake Tins

Two items you simply cannot life without if you’re intersted in staying on top of your home baking game—tins and plates. It’s nice to have a few different ones on hand for the variety of crusts you may want to make, we’ll cover the gamut for you.

Mixing Bowls and Storage Containers

If you’re baking bread and not using the sort of easy to stir plastic bins they use in professional kitchens to world over, you’re truly missing out. They’re of course great for storing anything and everything in the pantry or the refrigerator. When you couple good food storage containers with easy to clean and use mixing bowls, you’ll be in baking heaven.

The Best Ingredients

Sometimes getting unique ingredients for your baking needs isn’t as simple as running to the local grocery store. After the bump we’ll explore some of the best purveyors of backing foodstuffs for you to splurge on every once and awhile. The right spice, or the right bit of dried fruit or chocolate can make a world of difference.

Muffin and Tin Liners

Silicone or Paper? Whichever your preference for baking, you’ll want to have some on hand.

Proofing Baskets

Baking Parchment and Oven Liners

Measuring Spoons and Cups

I actually don’t use measuring cups, or measuring spoons because I weigh everything. But (!) many recipes do call for this sort of measurement, and so if you like to bake from cookbooks, you’ll likely need a good set of each.
