This holiday season, Eat Smarter! will be highlighting our favorite holiday gifts for every kind of epicurean in your life. Today, we're highlighting our favorite gifts for home bakers, from beginners to experts.
A Smarter Rolling Pin
This adorable rolling pin from Food 52 couldn’t be more smart or foolproof. It’s adjustable for 5 size options, making it easy to get the perfect amount of thickness for whatever you’re baking. It also has a built-in ruler right on the side, so you can measure the exact length and width of your dough without reaching for another utensil.
The Perfect Eco-Friendly Stocking Stuffer
These reusable muffin tins are super-cute and good for the planet as well, cutting down on unnecessary waste. They’re also super well-priced-- a pack of 12 in three pretty vibrant colors comes in at just $7.99.
The Classic Splurge
The KitchenAid stand mixer doesn’t come cheap, at just under $400, but if you’re looking to splurge on your favorite baker, this is a great way to go. It’s the ultimate in bakeware accessories, sleek and functional and sure to last for decades to come. It also comes in an array of attach-ons for kneading bread, specialty mixing, and more. Not to mention, it looks great in a kitchen.
For The Great British Bake Off Fans
If you’re a fan of the BBC show The Great British Bake Off, you’ll know there are few greater achievements for home bakers than perfecting the classic shortbread cookie. This super cute Nordic shortbread mold will give your home baker a major leg up in that department. Made out of extra-deep nonstick cast aluminum, this mold will help keep your shortbread at the optimum temperature in the oven, and will leave them with a beautiful classic shortbread design on top.
For The Beginner
This egg white and yolk separator is perfect for people just getting into the kitchen, and especially for children. It’s also super cute on any countertop.
A Sifter You Didn’t Know You Needed
This simple little gadget is incredibly smart-- instead of dealing with the messy process of sifting powdered sugar through a sieve, this compact little ball allows you to top off your favorite baked goods with a sprinkling of powdered sugar in a much less messy and more controlled way.
A Super Extra Measuring Set
These gorgeous gold measuring cups and spoons and a touch of glamour to any kitchen.
A Kitchen Scale for Design Buffs
A good scale is integral for any home baker, and this one from Escali is one of our favorites. It has an 11 pound capacity but is super sleek and elegant, especially compared to the majority of scales we see which look straight out of an office break room.
