It's all in the prep...
When it comes to baking, measurements are exact for a reason - a few grams out can make all the difference. So, get your measurements spot on with an electric or retro style scale.
These are handy for smaller amounts or measuring liquid. Most are suitable for the fridge, freezer and dishwasher, meaning you can use them to store any of your ingredients.

Non-stick resistant coating is essential to reduce your bakes from sticking. Trays with wider edges or grab grips also make it easier to transfer things to and from the oven.
Designed for bread or loaf cakes, the high sides help mould and shape your bake. Non-stick options will make getting your bake out easier, or run a knife around the edge to loosen it.
Once you take your bake out of the oven, give it a few minutes within its tray or tin (this'll help it keep its structure whilst it cools) before allowing it to cool fully on a wire cooling rack.
With up to 5 speeds (including a turbo-speed), you can quickly make light work of mixing, folding or whisking your ingredients together. Their compact size means they’re ideal for reduced portions and for storing away in smaller kitchens too.
These free-standing sous chefs allow you to continue with your recipe whilst they do the hard work of mixing ingredients together. Their movable arm and attached bowl means less mess, whilst the different attachments cater for your every baking need:
- Balloon whisk – helps get air in as it whips ingredients into creams, sauces or lighter mixtures.
- Flat beater – mixes batters, icing etc. into a smooth and even consistency.
- Dough hook – kneads together dough and heavy pastries.
Forget squeezing lemons until your hands cramp – a juicer will do all the prep and hardwork for you. Use with hard or soft fruits and pop the fresh juice into your bakes.
Blitz through your recipe with a helpful hand blender. Its slim design means it’s easy to store, whilst its different functions and attachments help smoothly combine your ingredients.
