Hello all of you.  Baking, as any other form of cooking, requires certain tools and equipments. I have written this post to summarise about the most basic baking tools and equipments. 

1. Cake Tins : 

Of course,  cakes are the most common baking recipe which any beginner wishes to try. Therefore cake tins are the most essential equipment a baker should have. Cake tins come in different shapes and sizes -  The most common shapes are square,  circle and heart.  The cake tins come in different sizes as well -  6 inch,  8 inch and even bigger. 

You can either buy an aluminium cake tin or a nonstick cake tin. If you buy an aluminum cake tin,  you will have to grease the cake tin before putting the cake batter into it; or will have to put a butter paper. Whereas a nonstick cake tin doesn't require any such preparation. You can directly put the cake batter into it. 

You may also need a muffin try if you wish to make muffins or cupcakes.  Again you can either buy an aluminum muffin tray or a nonstick muffin tray.

2. Borosil bowls : 

Borosil bowls are needed for making tasty pasta or a baked veg. Remember NEVER BAKE A CAKE IN A BOROSIL BOWL.  Your cake would not bake in a Borosil bowl. Borosil bowls are suitable for recipies like baked veg.

Borosil bowls also come in different shapes and sizes. The most common shape are round,  square and rectangle. You can buy it according to the size of your oven and the shape you prefer.

3. Baking Tray :

Most probably you will get this baking tray along with the OTG you buy.  The tray can be used for making cookies,  pizzas,  biscuits,  buns etc.

Also while making stuff like paneer tikka and kababs you can place this tray under the wire rack on which you will place your paneer tikkas. This will ensure that your oven does not get dirty as the marinate will fall while grilling the tikkas.

4. Spatula and brush :

Frankly you can continue with your baking without the spatula and brush.  You can use your very own spoons for folding the cake batter. But having spatula and brush makes baking easier and more convenient.

5. Hand mixer :

This is the MOST IMPORTANT THING.  Simply because it will mix your cake batter or will wisk your eggs very nicely. It comes with two types of attachments.  One is used for mixing sugar, butter or eggs. Another one is used for kneading dough.

6. Digital weighing scale :
It helps you to measure the ingredients accurately. You can measure your ingredients in different units.

So this is it. This is a short list of the most essential baking equipments. You can buy these stuffs from the market or online.
