It’s time to get busy baking memorable holiday treats. Holiday baking often requires baking tools you don't use frequently throughout the year and some of your tools may need a refresh.
This is the time of year to take inventory of your kitchen tools as you prepare for your holiday baking. Having the right tools on hand makes baking easier and less frustrating when you have a lot to do.
Some of these would make nice gifts or stocking stuffers for the bakers on your list, too.
Prepare for Holiday Baking with the Right Tools
I’ve made it easier for you to think through what you might need by assembling a list of highly-rated kitchen tools essential for your holiday baking. Use these affiliate links and you’ll be baking holiday treats in a few short days.
#1 Batter Bowls
Batter bowls make baking a breeze with their deep bowls, essential handles, and easy clean-up. Having multiple bowls means you can have several cookie doughs in process at the same time.
#2 Marble Pastry Boards
Making pies and delicate pastry sweets can get frustrating when rolling out the dough. A marble pastry board will reduce your frustration by keeping your surface cool. As a bonus, use your marble board as the base for a dazzling holiday charcuterie board.
#3 Sheet Pans
Can you have too many sheet pans? Not if they are good ones. Sheet pans are essential for holiday baking and lots more.
#4 Cookie Cutters and Decorating Tips
Holiday baking screams out for cookie cutters and decorating tips. You’ll love these to start, or add to, your collection.
#5 Waffle Irons
Waffles are essential to holiday breakfasts at my house. We love them topped with strawberries and whipped cream.
#6 Kitchen Towels
I don’t know about you but I never have enough kitchen towels to support my holiday baking. It’s time to stock up.
#7 Measuring Cups and Spoons
Measuring cups and spoons always seem to disappear or end up misshapen in the drawer. Are yours looking sad?
I don’t often wear an apron when cooking but holiday baking tends to get messy at my house. This is the time of year to wear a holiday-themed apron to get you in the spirit.
#9 Spatulas and Stirrers
Spatulas and Silicone Stirrers also seem to be in short supply during holiday baking.
