    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm new to baking, but I'm a long-time experienced cook. My daughter told me a scraper was a must-have, and I totally agree. The bowl scraper is a thermoplastic so it is flexible enough to lift dough out of a bowl. The metal bench scrape is wonderful, too. The two slide into each other for ease of storage. I do love it.

    Promising review: "These are very nice quality, sturdy, nonstick baking sheets. I needed a great baking sheet because my daughter loves baking cookies. So I bought these, and they are AMAZING.

    Promising review: "I thought all rolling pins were the same. I was wrong. This thing is amazing! It doesn't get stuck to what you're rolling. It's easy to clean, is the perfect size, and is so much easier to use. I'm never going back to a traditional one!" β€”Teresa Wismer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.98 (available in two other sizes and one other color).

    Promising review: "I bought this to weigh fruit and vegetables and was pleasantly surprised to find how easy it was to set up, how easy it is to work, and how consistent it is in its measurements. One of the nice features of the scale is the auto turn-off, which is helpful because I often forget to turn kitchen appliances off." β€”Fitz

    Macy's

    Promising review: "I purchased my Artisan KitchenAid Stand Mixer about a month ago and I love it. I've whipped up loaves of bread, scones, cakes and all have turned out amazing. I love the ease of using the bread hook, it certainly does the hard work for me. The hooks are so easy to attach, and the 5qt stainless steel mixing bowl is the perfect size. My mixer came with a splash guard so I can add flour to eggs and butter without it flying everywhere. So happy I finally made the decision to treat myself by buying this mixer." β€”sleatmc

    Get it from Macy's for $399.99 (available in three colors).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "A great product! It held up well to baking, broiling, and being scrubbed clean with a basic kitchen scrubby. It fit perfectly in my standard cookie sheet and kept my food out of the grease! No warping or bending with heat or cold water." β€”emilyashley315

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in three sizes).

    16. A box of unbleached and compostable parchment paper that's as eco-friendly as it is microwave and oven safe. You don't have to choose between becoming a better baker and saving the planet!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I almost didn't buy this because there was no cutter on the box. I'm so glad I picked it up anyway. It's awesome parchment paper! We had previously bought the white stuff, so I wasn't sure how this would be different. It seems a little thinner, which I actually like. It's easier to lay flat compared to my old stuff. It makes clean-up a breeze! I think I've found my new go-to parchment paper. The lack of a cutter ended up being a non-issue. Pull the paper out, press down on the lid to clamp it to the place where there is normally a cutter and pull. It tears so easily and very cleanly! No scary, metal cutter needed!" β€”Nicole D.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.49.

    17. A set of silicone baking cups for a greener baking experience. Your treats will pop out easily from these non-stick cups, and you can toss them in the dishwasher when the cupcake is done!

    Promising review: "They not only bake perfectly, they are also time-savers. You can bake them without a muffin tin, so they take up less space which means more can be baked at once. They also cool down fast." β€”AllTheGoodThings

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in three sizes).

    18. Rose's Baking Basics β€” Award-winning author Rose Levy Beranbaum guides you through must-know recipes for new and experienced bakers with extreme precision and enthusiasm for the craft. Take your brownies, pies, and homemade breads to the next level this spring!

    Get it from Amazon $19.54+ or from Target for $19.59.

    19. An easy-to-use cake leveler because lumpy, uneven layers of cake are a thing of the past. If you see a leveled, tiered cake in your future, this is for you!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    You'll also get a cake turntable, icing scraper, and offset spatula!

    Promising review: "For the price tag, I wasn't expecting much from this. I just needed a cake leveler and a turntable. But when I opened the box, I was pleasantly surprised! The turntable was just perfect, exactly what I needed. It spins very smoothly. It also has a stop mechanism that makes it stay still. While the turntable was great, it was all the additional things in the package that really sent this above and beyond. I made my niece a birthday cake for the first time, and it was my first time really decorating a cake. This kit filled out my tool cabinet so nicely! Piping tips aside, it had everything I needed to efficiently decorate a cake *well*. I anticipate getting a lot of mileage out of this nice kit." β€”Lydia

    Get it from Amazon for $28.92.

    20. A set of four mini tart tins with removable bottoms, so it'll be easy to make amazing individually-sized tarts and quiches!

    Get it from King Arthur Baking for $8.95.

    21. A set of three cookie scoops so you always get the perfect amount of dough to make your world-famous chocolate chip cookies.

    Promising review: "These are fantastic! They're sturdy and don't feel like they're going to break when you use them. They have worked so well over and over and over again since I purchased them. We use them for cookies, for filling muffin pans, and scooping ice cream. Highly recommend." β€”Jen Pants

    Get it from Amazon for $16.78.

    22. A gourmet utility whisk for hand whipping creams and mixing batters. This stainless steel tool is designed to be long-lasting, so you can continue to rely on it throughout all your baking adventures to come!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It's the best whisk I've owned so far. I bake a lot of cakes, and I like to mix them mostly by hand. So I need a sturdy whisk to handle thick batters. This does an amazing job." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.85+ (available in four colors).

    23. A silicone bread maker that'll take the guesswork out of making perfectly shaped and textured bread. Its design allows for steam to circulate, so your dough never loses moisture. It even comes with recipes!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This mixing bowl invention is genius. Bread making always makes such a mess, but with the Lekue Silicone Bread Maker, I can mix, proof and bake all in one bowl. It was a big advantage for proofing wetter dough like crusty artisan or sourdough because transferring that wetter dough out of the proofing container without degassing it was always a challenge. Being able to do everything in one container is extremely helpful." β€”Keek, an Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $27.78.

    24. A set of 12 stainless-steel measuring cups and spoons because the difference between a cup of flour and one cup of flour is bigger (and stodgier) than you might think.

    the set of 12 Kitchen Measuring Cups and Spoons on a kitchen counter
    Amazon

    Promising review: "These measuring cups/spoons are sturdy; they're much better than my collection of plastic cups and spoons. Best of all, I love that I can hang them from a shelf. They are close at hand and don't take up any room." β€”Alice

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in three colors).

    25. A nonstick cupcake and muffin pan for making all your eggy, blueberry, or chocolatey treats!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am one happy baker! I have been baking for over 50 years, and this is the best pan I have ever used. What makes it different? First, the pan is heavier, stronger and better made than some of my other pans. Second, I didn't grease the pans, and the muffins popped right out onto the counter after I let them cool for a couple of minutes. Finally, I didn't have any inconsistent results when I compared the muffins with each other. While this pan won't automatically make you a great baker, it WILL assure that you have consistent results from batch to batch." β€”C. Black

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in five other sizes).

    26. A revolving decorating stand so you can frost your cake with expert precision!

    Promising review: "Spins like a dream! It is scored so that you can center your cake perfectly. It is even pretty enough for presentation. Love everything about it." β€”Nancy Inch

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    27. A cast-iron Dutch oven for some no-knead crusty or artisan bread. And of course you can use it for some amazing one-pot meals, too!

    Target

    Promising reviews: "Perfect for baking sourdough breads." β€”Jrh

    "To put it simply, I love this piece! I never knew how much I needed a dutch oven until I bought this one. I use it all the time for soups and chili. My husband loves when I make sausage gravy for breakfast, and I can easily do it all in just this pot." β€”stormy

    Get it from Target for $69.90 (available in two colors).

    28. A yolk separator because when a recipe calls for egg whites only, they mean egg whites only. And trying to separate the yolk with your hands? No bueno.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "As a pastry chef, I have spent plenty of time and money trying out tools to make me more efficient at my job. I have plenty of different knives, spatulas, and piping tips that help me achieve that, but I had never found an egg separator as effective and easy to use as this Soleader egg yolk separator. Most other tools take a moment or so to get a clean separation, but with this tool, it was seamless. A must-have for any kitchen." β€”Cassie

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    29. A pack of three offset spatulas that'll make decorating a breeze!

    Promising review: "Frosting cakes is so much easier now. I honestly don’t know why I didn’t buy this sooner. Not getting frosting all over my knuckles is worth it." β€”Sandy A.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (also available individually).

    30. A stainless-steel zester and grater because your recipe calls for a hint of lemon, and that rind is exactly where you need to get it from. Its ergonomic and nonslip handle means you can zest, grate, and shave all the livelong day!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was amazed and impressed by what a great tool this grater is! I didn't expect it to be this good. I'd been using a box grater for lemon zest and grated cheese before I got the Deiss PRO grater and I always found the box grater to be awkward to work with. The Deiss grater is easy to work with and very easy to clean. The curved surface makes it easy to concentrate the grated material into a bowl beneath it." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.98.

    31. A 14-piece pastry bag set for pristine piping and delightful decorations! Everyone will think your baked goods came straight from a high-end bakery ;)

    Sur La Table

    Promising review: "I have to say that this is a wonderful set and it has just a great variety of different tips for you to choose from. The quality of the bag is really sturdy, so it can really hold whatever you have in there whether it be just cream cheese frosting or your homemade custard. It definitely enticed me to try cake decorating more. Definitely recommend this!" β€”bakingaddict

    Get it from Sur La Table for $20.

    32. A folding proofer that doubles as a slow cooker so you can proof bread dough, toss that in the oven, and then a one-pot dinner in the same device!

    the Brod & Taylor Folding Proofer & Slow Cooker
    Amazon

    Promising review: "For so many years I looked at this product and thought it would be a nice addition for my cooking needs. I bake a lot bread and while my oven has a proof setting, when I'm making up a sourdough (either the culture or the sponge) it often has to be left proofing for up to 12 hours. I don't like the idea of leaving a gas stove on, even on low, for that long of a time or overnight. For that reason, I finally decided to buy this.

    I am so glad I did. I've used it at least once a week since getting it. I was surprised to see this serves as a slow cooker too (yeah, I know, it says so right on the title). And a yogurt maker. Had I known all that years ago, I could have saved some money on purchasing separate slow cookers and a yogurt maker simply by buying this." β€”PCNiles

    Get it from Amazon for $194.95.

    33. A set of 50 animal cookie cutters because everyone knows cookies shaped like your favorite creatures just taste better. Take your baking to a whole other cutesy level with fun plastic shapes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are amazing! I use these cookie cutters for so many things! I use them for my daughter's sandwiches, for play dough, sensory bins, and we use them for cookies, too. There are so many animals to chose from; they have snakes, flamingos, sharks, turtles, sheep, and so much more. I love the variety and the price. Cookie cutters are normally expensive but this is very affordable for the amount you get. We’ve had these for months and they have held up so well!" β€”Rachael

    Get it from Amazon for $7.19.
