Ready for sugar and spice? From now until January, our ovens will be making cookies with holiday torches. As a baker, it’s my favorite time of year (if we don’t count summer). Now, I have a loaf of pumpkin bread that’s cooling and I’m dying to get my hands dirty with flour and sugar. My bread rack nearly tipped over and these tools help me make holiday cookies, cakes and loaves that are delicious, pretty, and efficient—all of which you can find on Amazon with Black Friday discounts ahead of the big day. I’ve sifted through the retail giant’s offerings and picked out the best deals on baking gadgets that will help make your holiday treats memorable.
You may need a digital thermometer to measure any meat you make for the holidays, but you can also use a digital thermometer to check the doneness of quick breads, cakes, and muffins instead of a cake tester or toothpick. It’s one of Amazon’s most popular products with 52,000 five-star reviews – and it’s 60% off for Black Friday.
Silicone baking mat
Silicone baking mats are a game-changer in the kitchen – it keeps your cookies from sticking to your baking sheet without the need for cooking spray like parchment paper, and only silicone mats are reusable (and keep cookie sheets clean!).
A good cooling rack can help dry out your cookies, cakes, scones, and anything else you’re trying to bake—it’ll also get you into eating time faster.
Pumpkin bread, cranberry bread, and (gasp!) fruitcake—you can’t eat these desserts without a loaf pan. Just make sure your recipe is the right size. This pan is textured to make it non-stick and is available in 8″ and 9″ versions.
Of course, you’ll need a cookie sheet for all of your snowflake decoupage candy cane silhouettes, but you may need more than one, as these baking sheets are used for so much more than just cookies.
When it comes to rolling pins, you have many options. This classic style is suitable for bakers of any experience level. It has two handles with nylon bearings that push out the dough without friction.
Even if you only plan to bake cookies for the holidays, a bench scraper is a tool you can use year-round. A bench scraper can help you scrape, lift, and cut dough, but it’s also amazing for clearing crumbs and crumbs from counters and tables—it’s kind of like the crumbs that waiters and white tablecloth restaurants use.
This set of cookie cutters has all the traditional shapes your family and guests will want during the holidays, and it’s just $8. You can’t get holiday cheer at this price.
Flouring your work area is more difficult than it looks if you want to evenly flour it. You can thank the folks at Oxo for this little tool – it can help you dust off the surface for your baking ambitions without using too much or too little flour. It can also be used to dust cookies with colored sugar and icing sugar.
Parchment paper allows you to bake cookies without sticking to the pan, but you can use it for quick breads and cakes so they can be easily removed from the pan.
For truly impressive cookies, a cookie scoop is a must. It works exactly like an ice cream scoop, except it produces smaller balls. The result is perfectly round cookies. The set comes in three sizes.
For pies, glass pie pans are an elegant way to showcase the dessert. This one is popular and affordable.
If you plan to make more than one pie, or if you want to make many pies throughout the year, this aluminum pan set is a great deal. The aluminum is lightweight, great for storage, and if you’re traveling with these guys, you won’t have to worry about dropping them and breaking them.
Silicone dominates the kitchen with its heat resistance, but its flexibility makes it perfect for removing all the last dough and batter from mixing bowls. This set is actually guaranteed to scrape out another cookie dough.
Pastry brushes made from hair or synthetic fibers are cumbersome. Usually, when you spread egg wash and melted butter on items, they come off. These silicone pastry brushes eliminate that problem, and they come at a great discount.
If you’ve been relying on kitchen towels to get hot pans off the stove and casseroles out of the oven, it’s time for an easy and safe upgrade. These oven mitts have a heat-resistant silicone outer shell to prevent you from burning your hands, and a soft terry cloth inside to keep your hands comfortable – 50% off, you don’t want to miss out on these.
