Essential baking tools
Whether you’re a professional baker or a novice, having the right tools to bake can make all the difference in your outcomes. We got companies such as Vituzote.com that stocks over 1000 kitchen and baking items such as the following:
1. Oven thermometer
Knowledge is power and knowing the temperature of your oven will allow you to recognize warm and cool spots in your oven. Moreover most ovens will have their temperature off by a couple of degrees and this tool gives you an accurate reading. Some features to look for are a good dial size, a hanger and a wide temperature range.
2. Measuring Tools
Proper measuring is a crucial part of successful baking. Add too much flour to cake batter and the cake may come out tough and dry. Not enough flour and you risk ending up with a badly structured cake that will collapse in the oven. Get yourself measuring spoons, cups and a good scale.
2. Piping or icing bags
Don’t be confused when you come across a recipe calling for using a piping or icing bag. It’s nothing more than a cone- or triangular-shaped, hand-held bag made from cloth, paper, or plastic that is used to pipe semi-solid foods by pressing them through a narrow opening at one end, for many purposes including cake decoration. It is filled through a wider opening at the opposite end, rolled or twisted closed, and then squeezed to extrude its contents. Piping bags really put ‘icing on the cake. There are disposable and re-usable ones too in a variety of sizes.
Parchment paper is perfect for non-stick baking and cooking and ensures easy cleanup. It is used to line cookie sheets and cake pans to prevent sticking (wet the paper to easily mould it to the shape of the baking pan). Once done baking you can quickly slide the parchment paper onto a cooling rack for cooling. Not only can you use it in traditional ovens but also microwave ovens and for preparing foods "en papillote" (baked in parchment) Quick tip - Parchment paper can also be used to form piping bags and to create a tall collar when preparing a souffle.
After you’re done baking, your baked treats will need a place to hang out. A cooling rack allows air to circulate freely to cool your baked goods, and to prevent them getting soggy from condensation. A tight grid is typically the best format for a cooling rack, to prevent thin baked goods like cookies from breaking or falling through. Leaving your baked treats to cool on the baking sheet causes them to continue to bake and may become overdone. A rack on the other hand allows air to circulate under the baked goods allowing them to cook quickly and evenly.
Use it to keep in complete control when icing or decorating. The most important thing to look for is a model that spins easily and smoothly. If the turntable is stiff and doesn’t rotate well, it might actually make it more difficult to decorate the cake. As you want the cake to stay put, a non-stick base is essential.
6. Icing colors
Icing literally takes the cake. Using just the right shades of color will often make your cake dazzle. Icing colors come in liquids and gels and help you achieve the exact shade you want without watering down your icing or frosted treats. You mix and blend them to your icing.
