Best Baking Essentials in India
Baking can be therapeutic and, deliciously so! Invest in these recommended baking essentials that will improve your baking experience by leaps and bounds, and you won't regret a dime. With these kitchen tools in place, your cakes and cookies will emerge from the oven no less than perfect (we call this an all-round recipe for happiness). From moulds and mixing bowls to cookie cutters and hand/stand blenders, here are the best baking essentials to get.
1. Hand/Stand Blenders
A list of baking essentials is incomplete without blenders for whisking, mixing and whipping. In this segment, you have two options – hand and stand mixers. Hand mixers are alright for light baking assignments that require little manual work – we recommend the white Orpat HHB-100E WOB 250 Watt Blender that has a comfortable grip, or the black Bajaj HM 250 Watt Mixer that comes with three speed controls. But for heavier baking, we recommend a time-and-effort-saving stand mixer like the Panasonic MK GB1 3 Litre 200 Watt Stand Mixer. If you detach the top, this model converts to a hand mixer.

2. Baking Moulds
Whether you're baking cakes or cupcakes, here are some aluminum baking essentials that will come handy. These moulds are safe to go into the oven after you're done filling them with your ingredient mixes. Bake delicious round cakes in three sizes with the 3-Set CuratedCart Cake Mould and 6 cupcakes per batch with the Grizzly Aluminium Steel 6 Slot Cupcake Tray.

3. Mixing Bowls
Mixing bowls are the basics of baking essentials. Get these borosilicate mixing bowls by Signoraware, one of the most trusted brands in the kitchen essentials, (for mixing dry ingredients at room temperature. You can also try plastic bowls if you aren't mixing thick, heated substances.

4. Cookie Cutters
Cookie cutters are mid-stage baking essentials that will cut your cookie dough cleanly for an assortment that looks as good as it tastes. We recommend metal over plastic simply because it cuts better. Get the Generic Cookie Cutter Set Of 12 if you want to amp up the holiday vibe, or the Amazon Basics Cookie Cutter Set for year-round baking. Similarly, you can't go wrong with the Clomana 12 Pieces Cookie Cutter Set, which will give you 4 shapes in 3 sizes each.

5. Decorating Tools
Decorative tools are prime baking essentials if you want your cakes and muffins to impress all and sundry before the feast begins. We recommend this Syga Silicone Decorating Pen Set that you can fill with melted chocolate or icing. Then proceed to make your hard work look twice as scrumptious.

6. Weighing Scales
Weighing scales are stage-1 baking essentials, so you must invest in the best. We recommend this electric Health Sense Chef-Mate Digital Kitchen Scale-KS33 (Black). The device is easy-to-use, boasts a weighing range of 1-5000g, and allows for shuffling between various units of measurement – whether that's grams, milliliters or ounces. A precision tare button calculates the net weight of ingredients by subtracting the weight of any bowl or container, ensuring accurate readings – these appear on a large, blue LCD illuminated by 2AAA batteries. Comes with a BPA-free plastic bowl for easy portioning and mixing.

7. Measuring Spoons and Cups
For good measure, here are our recommendations for measuring spoons and cups. The Okayji Plastic Measuring Cup Set has 6 multicolored pieces that measure 1/2 tbsp. (7.5ml), 1 tbsp. (15ml), 1/4cup (60ml), 1/3cup (85ml), 1/2cup (125ml) and 1cup (250ml). These are easily stored since they securely stack together. Or you could get the Darkpyro Plastic 8-Piece Cup and Spoon Set (black) that has 4 cups and 4 spoons made of non-toxic plastic – it measures one cup; ½, ⅓, ¼ , 1 tablespoon; and ¼, ⅓, ½ teaspoon. Secure the pieces with a plastic ring to store them safely.

8. Parchment Paper
This 260mm X 20 Meters parchment paper makes it to our baking essentials list since it lets you cook without greasing/oiling your cookie sheets, cake pans, baking pans and other moulds before use. That translates to saved cleaning time, which is always a plus. The product is microwave, freezer and oven safe upto 220 deg. C or 428 deg. F
9. Baking Cup Set
If you're making muffins, then don't miss these baking essentials. Depending on the volume of baking, you can choose between these two recommendations: the 12-piece AmazonBasics Silicon Multicolour Cup Set that looks like a rainbow when stacked (and is reusable), or the 100-piece Colourful Baking Muffin Liner Paper Cake Cups (disposable, one colour). They're both grease-proof and oven-friendly, so bake away with abandon.

10. Chocolate Mould
Now that we've covered most baking tools, here's a bonus recommendation you may like. Pour melted chocolate into this Hua You Silicone Chocolate/Ice mould, then put it in the freezer for the mix to harden. Make up to 30 small pieces in 6 shapes – round, heart-shaped, textured round, textured square, rectangle and a pyramid shape that reminds us of Toblerone. The mould material's non-stick so the hardened chocolate pops out with ease.
