You can turn out delicious treats with ease when you own these utensils, tools and pans
Whether you’re a beginning baker setting up your kitchen for the first time or an avid baker attempting to downsize — or you just hope to tame those overstuffed cupboards and drawers — this guide is a good place to start. If you own only the 15 items on this list (we’ll assume you’re starting with oven mitts and a wooden spoon), you’ll be in good shape to tackle most baking recipes with ease. What you won’t find here: piping bags, doughnut pans, individual-size ramekins or any other highly specialized items. If and when you want to bake with those, you’ll know.
