Useful and beautiful, a proving basket is used to give particularly soft or wet bread dough support while it rises. It will also leave an attractive spiral imprint which bakes into your loaf to give it a rustic, artisan touch.

3-Tier Cooling Rack, £21.99

A simple piece of kit but absolutely essential for allowing your bakes to cool correctly. This 3-tier cooling rack allows you to easily cool a batch of biscuits or cupcakes without using up all your counter space. The racks stack neatly on top of each other but can be used on their own for smaller batches.

MasterClass Electronic Touchless Tare Duo Kitchen Scales, £17.95

Accurately weigh a variety of liquid and dry ingredients with this high precision electronic kitchen scales. A touchless motion sensor allows the scales to be zeroed out at the wave of a hand, and the hands-free design prevents cross contamination and removes the need for multiple hand washes when weighing different ingredients in the same bowl for clean and efficient weighing.

Colourworks Classics Blue Silicone Spatula with Soft Touch Handle, £6.99

For keen bakers, a good silicone spatula is a kitchen essential, and this one from KitchenCraft is particularly trusty. The head has been cunningly shaped to include a bowl rest, so messy worktops will become a thing of the past. As it’s silicone it’s really flexible too, so it’ll bend with the contour of your mixing bowl when you scrape, simultaneously reducing food waste and washing up. It’s also odour and flavour resistant, you won’t risk passing unwanted tastes and smells between recipes

Lakeland Dough Scraper, £5.99

A must for cleanly dividing and portioning bread dough, and scraping up leftovers before re-rolling, our this stainless steel dough scraper will ensure you get the most out of every last bit of dough mixture. For ease of use, the scraper has a non-slip plastic handle and a tough stainless steel blade with measurements printed onto it. Not just great for bread, pizza and pasta dough, it is also ideal for dividing cookie dough and pastry too.

OXO Non-Stick Pro Oven Tray, £22

This is one of the finest baking trays we’ve tried - you can use it for roasting or baking absolutely anything. The ceramic-reinforced, two layer, commercial-grade coating provides the ultimate non-stick food release and is scratch, stain, corrosion and abrasion-resistant. The micro-textured pattern ensures even baking by minimizing surface contact and promoting airflow. It works particularly well for baking cookies and biscuits.
