10 Must-Have Tools in Baking

Equipping your kitchen with the right baking supplies can improve the quality of your creations. For many, the term 'baking tools' brings to mind equipment such as cookie cutters or cake decorating supplies like piping tips, however, the most important tools that you actually need for baking success are a little less obvious. From accurate measuring to efficient mixing and precise temperature control, these 10 tools are the building blocks of successful baking:

  1. Measuring Cups and Spoons

    Accurate measurements are crucial in baking, and having a set of measuring cups and spoons is essential. Invest in a good-quality set to ensure precise measurements of dry and liquid ingredients, ensuring consistent results every time.

  2. Mixing Bowls

    Mixing bowls are the unsung workhorses of any baking endeavour. Opt for a set of various sizes to accommodate different recipes. Stainless steel or glass bowls are ideal as they are durable, easy to clean, and don't retain odours.

  3. Whisk

    A whisk is a versatile tool that helps combine ingredients thoroughly and incorporate air into batters and creams. It's perfect for whisking eggs, whipping cream, and creating light and fluffy textures.

  4. Rubber Spatula

    A rubber spatula is a handy tool for scraping down the sides of bowls, folding ingredients together, and ensuring no batter or dough goes to waste. Look for a heat-resistant spatula that won't melt or warp when exposed to high temperatures.

  5. Baking Pan

    A collection of baking trays is essential for various baked goods. Start with basic pans like a round cake pan, a loaf pan, a muffin tin, and a baking sheet. Opt for sturdy, non-stick pans to ensure easy release of baked goods.

  6. Rolling Pin

    If you enjoy making pies, tarts, or cookies, a rolling pin is a must-have tool. Choose a solid wooden or marble rolling pin for even pressure and smooth rolling. It allows you to achieve the desired thickness and shape for your dough.

  7. Pastry Brush & Mat

    A pastry brush is invaluable for glazing pastries, brushing on egg washes, or applying melted butter. Look for one with natural bristles that won't shed and a heat-resistant handle for safe use. A non-stick pastry mat (also known as a baking mat) is also an incredibly useful tool for rolling pastry dough.

  8. Cooling Rack

    A cooling rack is essential for allowing your baked goods to cool evenly and quickly. It prevents sogginess by allowing air to circulate beneath the baked goods, resulting in a crisp texture.

  9. Oven Thermometer

    An oven thermometer is a game-changer for ensuring accurate baking temperatures. Many ovens can have temperature variations, and an oven thermometer helps you calibrate the temperature precisely, giving you consistent results.

  10. Kitchen Scale

    For precise and professional baking, a kitchen scale is indispensable. It allows you to measure ingredients by weight, providing accuracy and consistency. A digital scale with a tare function is particularly useful as it allows you to weigh ingredients in the same bowl without needing to subtract the weight of the container.
