4 Things Every Aspiring Home Baker Needs

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and the perfect opportunity to start splurging on tasty treats. The holidays scream baking, but if you’re someone who enjoys it year-round here are four items you need before you get to mixing.

Oven Thermometer

Sure, you can set your oven to a specific temperature, but all ovens are slightly different, and baking can be more sensitive to incorrect temperature or timing. An oven thermometer is a perfect solution. Plus, it can come in handy for any type of meal, not just baked goods.

Measuring Mat

The second hardest part of baking is the clean-up. A good way to keep your kitchen looking pristine is with a measuring mat. Not only will it keep your countertop clear of excess flour, drips, and spills but it allows you to accurately measure and shape your treats.

Also, if you’re baking with children, this is a great way to teach them how to properly portion and stay organized.

Tabletop Scale

Baking is more science than art. A tabletop scale is your best tool for portion control and keeping your measurements accurate, which is critical. This digital scale can provide measurements in pounds, grams, ounces, or millilitres. It only takes up a little space on your counter, and can even be easily stored away.

Check out online stores, including Uline for tabletop scales that come in a variety of styles, colours and sizes.

Drip Tray

You’re going to need a spot to place your treats after they have been dipped, sprinkled, and iced to perfection. A drip tray is an easy way to store all your treats and can also be used for serving. Kitchen Stuff Plus has everything you need plus other baking essentials, from thermometers, mixtures, and more.
