  The Chefs Important Baking Tools  
As a chef, you are only as good as your ingredients, skill and the tools that you use to make the food come out perfectly. For those doing a little baking, there are several pieces of equipment considered vitally important to have and to use on a regular basis. If you are going to spend money to get your kitchen set up, be sure that you have a few of these items at your beck and call.

First, know the difference between dry measures and wet measures and have both on hand. There are slight differences that can really impact the recipe if used improperly. For liquids, you will want something that has a handle and spout to it. Always set it down on the countertop to see what's actually inside. For dry ingredients, use an aluminium (if possible) measuring cup.

Next, look at your other ingredients in terms of tools. Baking sheets are commonly needed. Look for non-stick sheets including hard anodized products for easy cleaning and standardized heating. Also, parchment paper can be a very helpful tool to have to keep items from sticking to your sheets. Keep a role on hand.

For hand tools, you will need a few. Rubber spatulas are a must have in most baker's kitchens. Look for quality here. If you will be doing a lot of cookie making, invest in several sized ice cream scoops. These help you to keep your cookie portion sizes even throughout each one. Also, for removing items off your baking sheets, look for quality metal spatulas. The blade should be as thin as possible, but sturdy to pick up something with a bit of weight to it. You will also need cooling racks to set each baked good on so that you can remove them from the hot metal pan that will continue to cook them.

For exact measurements, have on hand a baker's scale. It is often best to use a scale instead of a measuring cup when the portion sizes have to be just right. Next, consider cake pans and models. Look for those that have a removable or false bottom for the very best results. Plus, have a thermometer on hand to make sure that your foods are properly temped.

These are just some of the many items you'll need to have in your kitchen as a baker. The good news is that most items are inexpensive and readily available, too.
