Stock Up! A Convenient Bread Baking Equipment Checklist

Just so you know: This page contains affiliate links; if you click on a link and make a purchase I might make a small commission, but it does not affect the price you pay!

Most kitchens are stocked with the basic bread baking equipment – from measuring utensils to a muffin tin and a loaf pan.

But if you are planning on a long-term relationship, there is some additional bread baking equipment you will want to have on hand.

To keep from having to get a loan to have a well-stocked kitchen, my advice is to purchase one or two quality items at a time. It may seem expensive to begin with, but by buying the best quality is really cheaper in the long run. And don’t forget – you can always add items to your birthday and Christmas list! This is a great way to get what you need faster!

This is a list to help you quickly shop for what you need, and each one is an affiliate link. If you would like an actual, printable checklist, there is one available in my new eBook – Baking Bread as a Relationship.

Not only does it have the checklist, but it also has an overview of each ‘date’ as well as recipes and a touch of Lagniappe!

A Note or Two on Bread Baking Equipment

Keep in mind, a few of these items aren’t necessarily manditory (like the Instant Read Thermometer), but do come in handy. As for my favorite items, you can take a closer look at any of the stoneware, the dough blade, Danish whisk and the kitchen scale. I never start baking bread without pulling these out first!
