Favorite Must Have Baking Tools
While there are a billion amazing and maybe not so amazing baking tools out there, I have rounded up a few of my favorite must haves. These are tools that I use all of the time and have for years.
1 Stainless Steel Scoops Set, 2 KitchenAid Stand Mixer, 3 Rubber Spatula/Scrapers, 4 Bamboo Tool Set, 5 Pyrex Measuring Cups, 6 Stainless Steel Measuring Cups, 7 Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons, 8 Pyrex Mixing Bowls, 9 Push Up Measuring Cup
I love my stainless steel scoop set. Whenever I make cookies or cupcakes I use these scoops. They allow for everything to be even in size and bake in the same amount of time. I do recommend a set of different sizes, because you will find a need for each one.
The KitchenAid stand mixer, while this tool is a big chunk of change it is so worth the money. I have had mine for over 20 years and use it at least 3 times a week. From baking cakes and cookies to shredding cooked chicken, the KitchenAid is my most favorite must have. I wish I had one in each color!!
I have several spatula/scrapers in different shapes and sizes and use them daily. Great for folding in, stirring and scraping ingredients. Plus, they are great for making scrambled eggs, as the egg doesn't stick to it, which makes clean up easy!
Bamboo Tools, another item I use daily. They are perfect for using in non stick pans as they won't damage the surface. They are durable and won't splinter easily. I love using them to make caramels as it won't conduct heat and will keep your hands from getting burnt.
I can't say enough about my Pyrex measuring cups. I have a full set of different sized cups and use these daily as well. I had my first set for over 20 years as well and the only reason I lost them was my kitchen cabinet tore off the wall and everything in it broke. These cups were one of the first things I replaced, because I simply can't live without them.
Stainless steel measuring cups and spoons, again I use these daily. Love that I can wash them in the dishwasher. A must have for baking and cooking period!
Mixing bowls, I have a ton of bowls, but my favorite are the Pyrex brand bowls. They are heavy, durable and some of them are just so darn pretty and fun looking.
Last but certainly not least, a push up measuring cup. While this gadget isn't totally necessary, however it really does make measuring things like sour cream, corn syrup and peanut butter so much easier. Instead of having to scoop the ingredient in a measuring cup and then trying to scrape it out, (and get all of it) you simple push the tube and the ingredients is automatically scraped out and dumped into your mixing bowl with ease. Love love love this tool!
