    1. A pun-ny oven mitt to make baking fun and full of attitude. As it should be.

    the red mitt with an illustrated cat and scratch marks on it that says "made from scratch"

    Promising review: "Love this so much I kept it for myself!" —J. Robinson

    Get it from Amazon for $14.98.

    2. A six-piece bakeware set because good bakers always need the basics to get started! You'll have everything you need.

    The bakeware set with pans for cookies, pie, cupcakes, and loaf cake

    The set includes one 9x5-inch loaf pan, two round 9-inch cake pans, a 12-cup muffin pan, a 13x9-inch roasting pan, and a 13x9-inch baking sheet.

    Promising review: "After doing research, I realized this set was the best price for each bakeware item. I just started baking in earnest and I don't want to spend wildly on baking tools when I'm a mediocre baker. These are actually standard sizes and trays across most of the recipes I've encountered. Used most of them already and am loving them!" —V. Rogers

    Get a six-piece set from Amazon for $25.99.

    3. An animal-shaped egg separator that's so cute and useful it'll make you excited for the unexciting act of separating egg yolks from egg whites.

    hand using the pig shaped separator

    Promising review: "I thought this was a gimmick when my wife got this and put it on the table. I mean this thing can't work right? Well I was wrong, this thing picks up yolks like the pig that it is. And it does it great each and every time. You have to keep it clean and free of residue to have it work at its best. But this is far better to use than those separators and doing it with the egg shells. I just pop eight eggs in the pan, and suck the yolks right up. Easy!" —GchanMako

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three styles).

    4. A kitchen scale that'll really come of use when it's time to measure and weigh your ingredients since we all know baking demands super precise measurements! An accidental extra gram of flour can throw off your whole dessert and we don't want that.


    Promising review: "This scale does what it is designed to do. 😊 It's pretty easy and basic to use. It has several measurements to choose from and you can put a container on it and then zero it out so you can put food in the container and only read the food." —Marissa

    Get it from Amazon for $11.88+ (available in six colors).

    5. And a Pyrex measuring cup for making sure you've got the recipe down to an exact science and are pouring exactly 3/4 of cup of oil or water so that your batter comes out perfect.

    the cup

    Promising review: "My daughter dropped my measuring cup similar to this and it shattered on the floor. I found several to choose from on Amazon, but this was the best deal for the best quality. Pyrex is a brand I trust so I didn't hesitate to jump on this deal. It arrived in perfect condition. It's easy to see the measurement numbers and lines. It's a nice thick glass." —Chris C.

    Get a 1-cup measuring cup from Amazon for $9.90.

    6. A delightful cookbook of recipes from your favorite books plus the passages they're featured in. If you've ever wanted to try a literary dessert, now's your chance! With recipes ranging from carrot pudding (A Christmas Carol) to Turkish delight (The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe), you'll be inspired to spend your summer afternoons in the kitchen whippin' these up!

    the book cover

    Promising review: "This is a really awesome gift for any literary nerd who also loves to cook. The book has TONS of literary references dispersed throughout the book. I gave it to a friend as part of a moving/new home/kitchen gift. I think it brought tears to her eyes." —Margot C.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.15.

    7. An oven thermometer because it's a must-have for every baker. You'll get an accurate reading on your oven temperature so your oven won't mess with your hard-made desserts and undercook or overcook them even when you've followed the recipe exactly.

    The thermometer on an oven rack

    It reads between 60 and 580 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Promising review: "I bought this after persistent frustration with my oven. I live in a rental apartment and my oven is pretty crappy. I was suspicious that it wasn't as hot as it claimed to be when I preheated it. This isn't such a big deal if you're just throwing a frozen pizza in the oven for 20 minutes, but I like to cook. I feel like my oven has been cheating on me. I needed to catch it in the act. Am I a crummy baker, or is my oven the culprit? So, I bought this thermometer. The result: My oven really does suck! When it beeps for 350 degrees, the thermometer reads 300 degrees. Goodbye, delicious chicken parmigiana; hello salmonella! Goodbye, carefully scheduled 7:30 p.m. dinner; hello, 8:15 p.m. apologies and wine on an empty stomach! This thermometer is like a private investigator who reassures you that you're not paranoid." —Jordan Taylor

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

    8. A set of lovable ceramic cat measuring spoons to elevate your baking experience from "eh" to "aw!"

    the set of four tied together

    They come tied with a ribbon for hanging!

    Promising review: "Functional and beautiful! I bought these as a gift for a cat lover. She just adores them. They are so beautiful and unique that she displays them prominently in her kitchen." —David C

    Get the four-piece set from Amazon for $12.95.

    9. An uber-popular oven cleaner so strong it'll fight the most stubborn stains and get 'em off overnight but that is also gentle enough that you don't need protective gloves to use it. It'll make cleaning up your messes easy when you're trying to make something new this summer.

    Promising review: "Oh man, this stuff is awesome! I sprayed and left it on overnight. I had no idea what to expect. I took a paper towel and started wiping out the oven. The grime just melted away. It was awesome!" —KsGrl444

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $22.99.

    10. A set of Mario cookie cutters when you feel like doing something fun and different with your cookies!

    11. A bread proofing bowl that'll keep moisture away from your dough and ensure your crust comes out just the way you want it. This comes with a scraper and a washable linen cloth too!,

    Promising review: "Just made my first bread in my new proofing basket and it came out great! Basket is nice and sturdy. I like that it comes with the instructions on how to make sure your bread comes out of the basket and a scraper. I like the attention to details. It is my second item from the Bread Bosses and I have to say the little things make a big difference. You can see and feel quality in their products." —Marzena G.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.40+ (available in two sizes and two scraper colors).

    12. A KitchenAid mixer because thousands of reviewers just rave about it. Like, we're talking OVER 50,000 5-star reviews, so you know, we're not kidding around. You can bake, mix, knead, and whip all kinds of dough and batter. It also has 10 speeds. It's really every baker's dream.


    Promising review: "I have wanted a KitchenAid stand mixer for years. So many recipes call for using one and all of the cooking shows on television use them. I finally ordered mine in red, which is my favorite color. I absolutely love it. Yes, it is pricey but so worth it. The quality is the best and it is so much easier to bake when you have both hands free to add ingredients. I've only had it for a few days but I have used it to make cookies and to mix up meatloaf. I absolutely love it." —Carole

    Get it from Wayfair for $399.99+ (available in 12 colors)

    13. A dough scraper you can use to cut your dough (and fruits and veggies too btw), and help get every bit of pastry and dough off the cutting board! It even has a ruler so you can ensure you're cutting equal-size slabs. A useful tool, indeed.

    Promising review: "I like this scraper. It cuts bread easily in half when making the recipe as directed. It works better than my plastic scraper for making sourdough loaves. It's also sturdy." —Gagirl76

The apron is a nice, sturdy linen material and the pattern is even cuter in person. Shipping was very prompt and the seller was very communicative regard order status. Will definitely be purchasing from this shop again in the future." —Caeitlin

    Get it from CreativelifeJenny on Etsy for $11.39+ (available in four fruit prints).

    15. A silicone baking mat so your cookies aren't ruined by an un-greased baking sheet. This will make for a much better baking experience than using cooking spray or parchment paper you'll just have to throw out.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these mats. Excellent quality and price. There are many brands more expensive and these do the same thing. I live a low-fat, plant-based lifestyle so these mats eliminate the need and use of oil to roast vegetables, bake cookies, and other baked goods. They are so easy to clean and nonstick, so hot water and a soft rub and the mats clean them up well. I don't know how I did without them! I will never buy foil or parchment paper again. Potatoes are crispy without the use of oil too!" —Crystal Audas

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $12.89+ (available in three styles and packs of two, three, and four).

    A person pouring batter into the colorful silicone baking cups

    Promising review: "These little thingies are perfect! I made some muffins with them and they came out incredibly easily with no residue on the cups at all. I didn't have to use grease or anything. The colors are bright and fun, and they you plenty of each color. These are slightly smaller than a regular cupcake pan/liner, which is actually perfect for my purposes. As others have mentioned, the cups are a bit on the flimsy side, so make sure they're on a baking sheet before you fill them because they can be difficult to transport once full." —kapplejack

    Promising review: "It is strong and works wonders! For the oven cleaning, I let it sit a while before scrubbing everything off and it worked SUPER well. I tried it out on several things it lists on the bottle and was very happily surprised with the results! We had a berry spill on the rug in the kitchen that I couldn't get out and I SWEAR that I sprayed this on and watched the purple/pink/blue disappear!!! I just used a regular sponge to give it some extra scrubbing and it was GONE!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    The edible gold stars on top of a cupcake

    Promising review: "These were fantastic! The tube is tiny, so honestly I didn’t think they’d go far, but I only used about one-third of a tube for 30 cupcakes. They were much easier to ‘sprinkle’ on than I thought they would be. They were really great for my daughter's Beauty and the Beast princess party." —Misty W Brown
