A Tip for Finding the Volume of Your Bundt Pan (and Why It Will Help You)
When you buy pans at the store, their size is clearly labeled, but when you inherit them from family or find them at a garage sale, it’s a little harder to decide.

How To Clean a Bundt Pan
I’ve gotta say, I love a Bundt pan. My mom has a star-shaped one that she’s had for at least 30 years — a holdover from a few years we spent overseas when my dad was in the Air Force — and she almost exclusively uses it to make flan for dinner parties. If you’re someone who’s into baking shaped desserts, Bundt pans are an awesome solution for whipping out that statement-making cake for a party.

Our Favorite Spatulas: 5 Spatulas Are Better than 1
We use our spatulas every single day. We couldn’t imagine cooking without at least one, although let’s be honest — even the minimalists among us have multiple spatulas in their kitchen tool jar (or drawer). And can you ever really have too many spatulas? There are so many different shapes, sizes, and materials, and each one has its own purpose. Here are five types of spatula we can’t live without.

How I Organize My Baking Pans: Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen
We’ve already seen how Smitten Kitchen’s Deb Perelman organizes her food cabinets. The other interesting thing about her kitchen setup, though, is how she stores her baking pans. We thought it was such a smart solution for a small kitchen! Here’s how she does it. Deb uses racks on top of her kitchen cabinets to organize and store all her bakeware, a habit she started in her old (much smaller) apartment. She says it’s one of her “favorite kitchen organizing tricks.

Tip: Dry Metal Cookie Cutters in the Oven
After a long cookie baking session, you might be tempted to throw the cutters in the sink and deal with them later. But trust us, you and your cookie cutters will be happier if you wash them promptly (or at least keep them dry until you do) and then … pop them in the oven!Metal cookie cutters should be gently hand washed and then quickly dried to prevent rust.

The Baking Steel
Item: The Baking SteelPrice: $72Overall Impression: Fantastic and durable pizza accessory, one that will help your pizza cook much faster and give it a deliciously chewy, blistered crust. Do you use a pizza stone? Putting a heavy stone in your oven helps stabilize its temperature, retain its heat, and transfer it more efficiently and directly to your pizza. I had a pizza stone a long time ago, but broke it rather promptly, and ever since then I’ve baked my pizzas directly on an oven rack.

I love pastry bags. No, I don’t decorate cakes — in fact, if you’ve paid attention to the cakes I’ve shared here, you’ve probably noticed their decidedly rustic appearance.

Good Product: Regency Professional Parchment

This reusable parchment is thinner and more flexible than Silpat, making it useful for tasks like lining brownie pans or casserole dishes.

Sheri is looking for a good flour canister. Can you help? I am completely hooked on Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day (which I originally spotted on your site). I haven’t bought bread at a store in two months now, which is amazing considering I have an 8-month-old and work full time. My newfound love has required that I acquire some new kitchen tools. I’ve found most things I need, but I can’t for the life of me find a flour canister that will work.

Essential Baking Tools: Silpat

There are just so many things to love about this design!First of all, the glass fronts on the drawers are genius. Not only can we see what’s inside for easy identification, but we can determine at a glance how much flour or sugar is left.

Cool Tools: Spritz Cookie Press
While a cookie press is not an essential baking tool by any stretch of the imagination, they certainly are a lot of fun! We love pulling ours out around the holidays to make a few batches of delicate and buttery spritz cookies, especially when there are kids around who are eager to help out with cookie baking. Do you own one?Cookie presses work by pushing a small amount of dough through perforated plates directly onto the baking sheet, somewhat like a caulking gun.

Chefs Catalog
Have you heard of CHEFS catalog? I’d venture that you almost certainly have, since the company has been selling upscale, high-quality cookware, bakeware, and all manner of kitchen utensils and tools since 1979 — first by mail-order only via their catalog, and now through their extensive online site and brick-and-mortar store in Colorado Springs.

3 of My New Favorite Tools for Packaging Freezer Meals
Yesterday I shared the freezer meal party I hosted with my mom and sisters (50 meals, $300!).

You probably know the basics of freezer packaging (see Jessica Fisher’s rundown of the essentials here), but I wanted to share three of my current favorites for getting meals packaged up neat and tight.

The 5 Most Important Tips for Actually Cleaning Your Silicone Bakeware
Silicone baking pans — muffin tins, nonstick sheet pan liners, loaf pans — can be great if you are short on storage space, hate using cooking spray, or can’t ever seem to get a Bundt cake out of the pan to save your life.

Why 4 Whisks Are Better than 1
In a world of “less is more,” I’d argue that when it comes to whisks, this rule doesn’t apply. I’m sure you’re frowning at this. I mean, who has room for more kitchen utensils in that crock that sits on the counter? Frankly, not most people. But take some of those crummy-looking wooden spoons out and make space for a few extra whisks. Why? Because not all whisks are created equal — each has a specific, important role.

5 Things to Know About Cleaning Cookie Sheets

This Is Why You Should Be Baking with a Cast Iron Skillet
While a cast iron skillet is an incredible tool to help you get dinner on the table, I’d argue it’s equally useful when it comes to desserts; these days I find myself using it more for baking brownies and apple crisp then searing steaks. In fact, a cast iron skillet really can be a key tool in helping beginners become better bakers. Why is that? Here are four reasons.
