Ozeri Pronto Digital Multifunction Kitchen and Food Scale
This is my #1 recommended baking tool! Using a kitchen scale is the best way to measure dry ingredients to ensure consistent results in baking -- no more crumbly dough, dry cakes, or cookies that don't spread!
KitchenAid 4.5 qt. Stand Mixer
You don't need a stand mixer for most recipes, but it will definitely transform your baking process. If you really love to bake, I recommend thinking about getting one!
Wilton 3-Tier Cooling Rack
Cooling racks are a must when making cookies and cakes. But if you've got a shortage of counter space, this tiered rack is amazing!
KitchenAid Tilt-Head Flex Edge Beater
I love this paddle attachment for my KitchenAid stand mixer -- it scrapes the bowl itself so I don't have to!

Nordic Ware Pan Springform, 9 Inch
I've used this springform pan for cheesecakes, coffee cakes, and no-bake desserts, and never had a leak! It's so versatile!

Non-stick, so your pastry or pie dough won't stick to it. Non-slip, so it stays put on the counter. And it's got all the measurements you need for rolling out and measuring dough!

I love this mini muffin pan for mini muffins and cupcakes!

Using a cookie scoop is the best way to get uniform, even cookies. This set is amazing for scooping cookie dough for recipes like my Crumbl Sugar Cookies, cupcake batter, and ice cream!
KitchenAid Queen of Hearts Hand Blender
My KitchenAid immersion blender is so useful. I use it for soups, salad dressings, and to puree sweet potatoes for my Sweet Potato Pie!
Cuisinart 14-Cup Food Processor
This food processor has been a game changer for making my Flaky Butter Pie Crust Recipe, whipping up perfect shortbread thumbprint cookies, and grating cheese for my Southern Baked Mac and Cheese!
Wilton Aluminum 8-Inch Round Cake Pans
These Wilton Performance 8-inch pans are all I use for 8-inch cakes like my Lemon and Blackberry Cake! Even cake layers every time!

This is a must for consistent baking! Very often, our ovens are not quite accurate -- an oven thermometer is an easy way to adjust for any inaccuracies and make sure everything bakes evenly.
Nordic Ware Elegant Party Bundt Pan
My favorite Bundt pan! I used this 10-cup pan for my Rum Soaked Cake, my Apple Cider Donut Cake, and my Peach Cobbler Pound Cake!
Marble French Rolling Pin with Stand
I love using a marble rolling pin to roll out dough -- it's got the weight you need to really get the dough flat, plus the marble is naturally cool, which helps keep your dough flaky.
Pyrex Prepware 2-Cup Measuring Cup
This is a great quality measuring cup that I use every time I bake!
Fox Run 9-inch Tart Pan with Removable Bottom
This tart pan is amazing for recipes like my Passionfruit Tart or Cannoli Pie! The removable bottom makes them so easy to slice and serve beautifully!
