Baking Equipment and Tools
I’ve shared some great recipes to make when you’re in the kitchen. Here’s a list of baking equipment and tools that I use to turn out the best cookies, cakes and more! These are my personal favorites that I’ve used in the kitchen. There is a difference when you choose the right baking tools!
Baking Appliances and Accessories
|Kitchen Aid Mixer|
I have this exact Artisan kitchen and mixer and love it! When looking for a mixer like this one make sure to find one that is 325 watt. Walmart and Kohl’s may sell the Artisan, but double check how much power it will have.
Kitchen Aid Mixer Spatula
Small Baking Tools
|Medium Cookie Scoop|
This is the size I use the most often. I use this size for my peanut butter cookies and chocolate chip cookies.
|Small Cookie Scoop|
This is my second favorite. It makes smaller cookies when you have smaller mouths to feed.
|Large Cookie Scoop|
I probably use this one the least but it’s great for making cookies that have big chocolate chips in them!
|Liquid Measuring Cups|
When measuring liquids for baking, you need liquid measuring cups to insure accuracy. These are the best because you can look down into them as you pour!
|Magnetic Measuring Spoons|
You’ll never have to chain up your measuring spoons again! I love how these nest and stick together because they are magnetic. Genius!
|Heavy Duty Measuring Cups|
When it comes to measuring dry ingredients, I like my measuring cups to be sturdy. I also like how these are oval so they’re easier to get into my sugar container.
|Adjustable Measuring Cup|
If you’re going to bake using ingredients like shortening, peanut butter, honey you need this. It makes measuring sticky ingredients a breeze!
If you plan to make biscuits you’ll need a pastry blender. I don’t use mine too often, but when I do, I’m glad to have it on hand.
I use this when I’m making pies! You can also use it for Ravioli, although I haven’t tried that yet.
Solid Silicone Spatulas
These are the absolute BEST! They don’t have the top that comes off or fills with water or nastiness from cooking or washing. They are solid. These are my favorites!
Love this brush because it is so easy to clean. The bristles don’t stick together. I use this to add butter to the tops of bread and other goodies I bake.
Yes, you can use a knife, but it leaves a mark. These are great to have on hand. You can also use an antique hat pin, but they’re more expensive.
This is the rolling pin that I own. I love it. I also have an antique wooden one, but I find it’s harder to clean so this one is my go-to rolling pin.
|Silicone Pie Mat|
If you plan to make pies, this tool is amazing! It helps to keep the pie dough from sticking and I LOVE the measuring tool that’s built right in.
|Metal Cookie Cutters|
I prefer metal cookie cutters to get a crisp edge. You’ll often find me looking for them in antique stores because they are typically the most solid cookie cutters you’ll ever find!
Large Baking Tools
|Airbake Baking Sheet|
The very BEST cookie sheet. If you plan to make cookies often, plan to buy this pan. It keeps the edges from getting too dark while making sure the cookie is cooked.
|Airbake 9×13 Pan|
This pan is the best for cakes and brownies! Again, the airbake system is amazing when it comes to baking.
Frying doughnuts makes a mess. You can bake them in a pan like this and get the best cake doughnuts!
You need a good sturdy set of cooling racks. I like this size because I can get an entire pan of cookies on one and let them cool while I bake another.
Everyone loves cupcakes. This is my favorite pan. It’s heavy duty.
I love to make homemade bread and this is my favorite pan. It’s heavy duty. (are you catching a theme?)
I just think a pie pan should be pretty. I also think it should bake well, and this is my favorite one to use.
|Texas Sheet Cake Pan|
If you plan on making a big batch of brownies or a texas sheet cake, make sure you have a pan like this one. It cooks very evenly!
|Spring Form Pan|
I don’t use it often, but when I do – it’s amazing.
Baking Storage and Mixing Tools
|Glass Dry Goods Jar|
This is the best jar for storing flour! It has a wide lid which makes it easy to measure and the lid screws on to keep the flour fresh.
I love these mixing bowls! They are heavy duty and they have a gripped bottom which helps when mixing thick batter.
You need a good scoop for your flour. It makes it so much easier. I keep mine in my flour jar.
That wraps up my 30 must have baking tools! Which is your favorite?
