The Delicious Details
Stock your baking nook or kitchen with some of our favorite baking tools!
Wooden Spoons ... $8.25
Wooden spoons are great for mixing a dough, stirring soup, serving salad, and more. These are made from teak and age beautifully with care. We recommend oiling them with wood oil regularly so they smooth over time and develop patina.
- Big spoon
- Corner spoon
The pin chooses the baker... we've stocked an assortment of rolling pins to suit your style and frame, all made by J.K.Adams. Which to choose?
First, what feels right in your hands? Do you like the rolling action of the old school roller pin? or prefer the precision control of a French tapered dowel?
Second, consider your shoulder width. If using an old school roller, you don't want to be scrunched up using a pin that's too narrow or splayed out using one too wide. The most comfortable width is usually about the same as your shoulders!
- Youth Old School Roller, perfectly sized for young bakers ... $16
- Petite Old School Roller, 18" wide... $18
- Gourmet Old School Roller, 21" wide... $24
- French taper dowel, a favorite of many pastry chefs... $18
- "Lovely" dowel, rolls perfect 1/4" thickness every time! ... $22
Cookie Scoops ... $13.50 ea
Make your consistent cookie dreams come true! Cookie scoops are a helpful tool for the home baker to ensure that cookies turn out evenly sized and consistently baked.
- #60 (.54 oz) : perfect for when a recipe says "tablespoon sized"-- smallish cookies like thumbprints or drop cookies for sandwiching.
- #30 (1 oz) : wonderful all-around size! An excellent middle ground for cookies small enough to snack on, but large enough for a treat.
- #24 (1.33 oz): looking for palm-sized chocolate chip cookies like you get at Muddy's? Look no further! This size also works great for muffins & cupcakes.
Bench Scraper ... $14.25 ea
The ultimate kitchen work horse! A bench scraper can be used to tidy workspace, chop ingredients, portion dough, and more. We love these for their rosewood handles that are ever so slightly beveled to fit comfortably in the palm.
Small Offset Spatula ... $5 ea
The offset blade allows for more control and this ones is the perfect size for detail work in cake icing but also spreading icing on cookies... or even just slathering peanut butter on toast!
Oven Thermometer ... $5 ea
Did you know that your oven is probably as much as 50 degrees off? Yup, most ovens are liars. Ensure that you're baking at the correct temperature by using a simple oven thermometer.
