Ozeri ZK14-S Pronto Digital Kitchen & Food Scale

Weighing ingredients in recipes has been a game-changer for me! I use this every time I bake and it makes my life so much easier.

Fox Run Tart Pan with Removable Bottom

Similar to the pie pan below, this tart pan makes elegant tarts and quiches and is even easier to use than a traditional pie pan!

Wilton 8-inch Cake Pans

I make most of my full-size cakes with these pans. The aluminum is so high quality and they still look as good as when I first got them!

Nordic Ware Natural Aluminum Commercial Baker’s Big Sheet

A great quality 3/4 sheet baking pan — big enough to fit all your cookies and rimmed to accommodate roasting vegetables, nuts, etc.

Silpat Baking Mat

Works with the Nordicware Sheet Pan — replaces parchment paper for perfectly even, nonstick cooking. Wipes clean easily, and turns out fantastic cookies!

Tosnail 9-inch Nonstick Pie Pan with Removable Bottom

I got this pie pan after seeing the Alton Brown Apple Pie Recipe. I love the idea of a pie pan that lets you remove the whole pie easily, to make slicing and serving easier!

KitchenAid Stand Mixer

I got this as a Christmas gift from my brother a couple of years ago, and it transformed my baking life!

Gvode Flex Edge Beater for Kitchen-Aid 4.5-5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer

This paddle attachment solves the issue of ingredients to the sides of the stand mixer bowl. Makes everything easier!

Rubbermaid Instant Read Oven Thermometer

Do yourself a favor and check your oven temperature! My oven was about 5 degrees too cold, and this inexpensive thermometer helps me keep it accurate for baking.

LETOOR Adjustable Pie Crust Shield

Essential for my sweet potato pie recipe, this pie shield keeps the edges of your pie pan from browning and is so much easier to use than foil!

JOFUYU Lemon Zester & Cheese Grater

Makes the task of zesting citrus so much easier than any zesters I’ve used in the past. Works GRATE with parmesan cheese too!

Wilton 3-Tier Collapsible Cooling Rack

Along with the bigger sheet pan and Silpat baking mat, this cooling rack has streamlined my cookie baking so much!

Sur La Table Marble Rolling Pin

The cool, heavy marble makes pie crusts and cut out cookies roll out perfectly! And I never knew how useful a rolling pan stand would be. It’s a great addition to my kitchen.

KitchenAid Hand Blender

I use this to purée potatoes, cauliflower, and to thicken soups. It’s so useful and versatile!

Misto Olive Oil Sprayer

I love this sprayer! I use it to coat veggies for roasting and air frying, or for light sautés. Much better than canned cooking spray!

Magnetic Spice Jar & Labels Set

If you have limited space in your kitchen like me, these are a must! It’s so great having spices clearly visible on the side of the fridge, without having to dig in cupboards or take up counter space. PLUS they come with labels for any herb or spice you might need them for.
