Today we will introduce the commonly used baking utensils.


Toaster Oven 4 Slice

The capacity of a household oven is generally between 30 and 40 liters to meet daily needs. When purchasing, try to choose the model with separately controlled upper and lower tubes to facilitate the mastering of the coloring.

Kitchen Scale:

Kitchen Scale
There are electronic scales and pointer scales. It is recommended to choose an electronic scale with an accuracy of 0.1 gram. It is better if it allows unit conversion (grams, milliliters) of different materials!


Digital Laser Infrared Thermometer
There are two types: oven-going thermometers and Instant-Read Thermometer. The thermometer that can be used in the oven is to test the actual temperature of the oven. The oven’s indicated temperature is usually different from the actual furnace temperature, and sometimes this gap can even reach 30 °C.

With a thermometer that can be placed in the oven, you can more accurately grasp the actual furnace temperature and avoid making unfinished or baked products. Most instant-read thermometers are probe-type and can be inserted directly into the liquid or meat for measurement. In addition, the infrared thermometer for baking is also available. Just aim at the target and you can measure the temperature accurate to 0.1 °C. You can choose according to your own needs.

Electric Eggbeater
There are two types: manual and electric. Unlike thermometers and timers, both types are baking essentials. The manual egg beater is suitable for gently stirring some ingredients, especially the cake paste added into the flour, which can effectively stop the flour from smashing; and the electric egg beater can quickly finish the whipping of eggs, cream and other ingredients.

Oil Paper / Tarpaulin:

Oil-paper made of silicone oil and linoleum made of fiberglass are essential for the oven, which prevent the ingredients from sticking to the baking tray and make cleaning easier. It should be noted that the oil paper is a disposable product, and the tarpaulin can be repeatedly used.

Silicone Oven Mitts with Quilted Cotton Lining
