Promising review: "Best bakeware set I’ve ever had. These are truly nonstick and bake evenly. I made eight loaves of zucchini bread and it was perfectly browned each time. Wiped it out with paper towel and it was like brand new. Hand washes beautifully. I made lasagna and it served beautifully and nothing stuck to the pan. Meatloaf, same thing!" —B B

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.

the nanahome dough scraper and bowl scraper

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. I would definitely buy it again and recommend it." —Sparks

Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

10. 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.

Promising review: "This is the best parchment paper out there. I use a lot of parchment in the kitchen, and this is the only one that never fails me. Nothing sticks to it, and it can stand up to a 550°F oven long enough for my pizza dough to set on the stone or steel. Great stuff." —MM

Get it from Amazon for $5.49.

12. 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 your baking adventures!

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." —sleatmc

This set comes with a 12-inch piping bag and 12 stainless steel decorating tips.

Promising review: "I really like this set. It's inexpensive, easy to clean, reusable, easy to use, and it's made frosting cupcakes much faster as a novice for both buttercream and egg white–based frosting. The different decoration caps screw on, so don't have to worry about seepage, which I like." —Mo

Get it from Amazon for $18.39.

24. An adjustable 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!


Promising review: "I was so pleased when using this. I thought it would be really difficult to use at first. I'm a DIY mom and I finally decided to make my own cake for my daughter's birthday. This really helped me get the sizing of the cake just right and make it level enough to stack!" —Angela G

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

25. 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 if bread baking is as new to you as 2022 is.

Promising review: "This mixing bowl invention is genius. Bread making always makes such a mess, but now 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." —Keek, an Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

26. A set of four mini tart tins with removable bottoms from employee-owned company King Arthur Baking. It'll be easy to make amazing individually-sized tarts and quiches!

Get it from King Arthur Baking for $8.95.

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!

series of reviewer images of stew made inside the blue dutch oven

Promising reviews: "I have been experimenting with beef and pork roast meals with this Dutch oven. I LOVE it. There are no scorch marks on the bottom after cooking. The cast iron spreads the heat out so evenly that your entire contents are at nearly the same temperature with no hot spots. For this to be true requires mass. Indeed, this device is very heavy. That is what makes it work so well." —quiet bells

"The quality is superb; it is heavy but practical. I've used it to bake artisan style bread a couple times and the results were just as if I had put my bread in a brick oven. The enamel non-stick surface is so easy to clean, I don't know why I didn't buy this before." —JL

Get it from Amazon for $54.90+ (available in six sizes and 26 colors).

28. 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." —Jen Pants

Get it from Amazon for $17.98.

29. A pack of three offset spatulas to 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." —Sandy A.

Get it from Amazon for $18.80 (also available individually).

30. 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 shapes.

Get it from Amazon for $9.69.

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." —C. Black

Get it from Amazon for $25.05.

32. An adorable fruit-covered linen apron so you don't cover yourself in flour, food dyes, and molasses.

Creativelife Jenny is a small Etsy shop that makes products with variety of cute prints.

Promising review: "Quarantine really got me into baking and cooking from scratch, so when I decided it was finally time to get an apron, I was SO excited to see this cute avocado print one! 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 Creativelife Jenny on Etsy for $7.99+ (available in a variety of prints).

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

the proofer

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." —PCNiles

Get it from Amazon for $194.95.

34. A revolving decorating stand if your goal is to 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." —Nancy Inch

Get it from Amazon for $40.99.

35. 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.

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. 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." —Cassie

Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

36. A stainless-steel zester and grater for when 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!

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 this and I always found the box grater to be awkward to work with. This 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." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $11.98.

37. Rose's Baking Basics to take your brownies, pies, and homemade breads to the next level! 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.
