Williams Sonoma Goldtouch Pro Nonstick 6-Piece Ultimate Set  

These are the pans that I always reach for.  Reliable, nonstick, and I know they’ll never buckle in the oven on me.  The quarter sheet pan is comes in so handy for small batch baking and ingredient mis-en-place.  I love that the 9-inch square baking pan and loaf pan are pretty enough to serve from.  For a baker, these pans reach best friend status!

Williams Sonoma Essential Stoneware Bread Pot

Buckle up for your new bread obsession because this Bread Pot will having you pull bakery-style boules out of your home oven! The secret is the steam created inside the pot as the bread bakes.  Remove the lid towards the end of baking to coax a golden loaf out of the oven and I guarantee you’ll feel like a wizard.

Breville Smart Oven with Convection

We’re great bakers but this oven is the real genius in the kitchen.  This countertop oven works overtime in my kitchen during the holiday season and I love it for baking all the cookie tins I gift.  I’ve also made the most gloriously crisp and chewy bagels in this oven – the convection setting browns to perfection!

Breville Handy Mix Scraper 9-Speed Hand Mixer

In everyday baking, I find myself reaching for this handy mixer even more than my sturdy stand mixer.   From cake batters to frostings, there’s nothing this little mixer can’t handle.  Beaters that are part whisk and part spatula work overtime so I don’t have to!

Joy the Baker Baking Mixes

We turned some of the most popular recipes on JtB into no-fail, supremely delicious cake mixes.  Most of the legwork is done, just grab a bowl and a whisk and take all the credit for your perfect creation. The mixes are also fun to play with – I highly recommend you add a banana.  However you bake it, the fact that you used a cake mix is a secret that’s safe with us!

Swiss Dot Ceramic Mixing Bowl

I love this simple and sturdy bowl for making cookie dough and cake batters.  The pour spout comes in very handy for better batter from bowl to pan and the sweet vintage vibes of the bowl are just a bonus.  A kitchen classic!

Nordic Ware Party Bundt Cake Pan

Every cake that comes out of this pan calls for an instant celebration!  A dusting of powdered sugar and colorful candles is the perfect finish though I’m obsessed with confetti inside the cake.  This Funfetti Bundt Cake is the

Le Creuset Stoneware Mini Round Cocotte

I love these little pots for individual dinner party desserts (think molten chocolate cake or apple crisp), though I store my Jacobsen Salt Co. finish salt in a mini cocottes on my stovetop and it’s the cutest.

I hope you find some sweet things to buy for your favorite baker and be sure to enter for a chance to win the entire Better Baker Collection HERE!
