The Surprisingly Simple Find That’ll Make Holiday Baking so Much Easier
When you think of must-have baking essentials, you probably see flashes of cooling racks, cookie sheets, cake pans, and mixing bowls. With the holiday season upon us, there’s never been a better time to upgrade your baking setup. While you can check out some of our editors’ top picks from the best stand mixers to our favorite spatula, there’s one suggestion we think is going to make your baking as seamless as possible: buying pre-cut parchment sheets. In particular, we love The Baker’s Bundle from Kana Lifestyle: It’ll make cleanup from your seasonal cakes and cookies so speedy.
Anyone who bakes frequently knows how essential parchment paper is for making sure nothing sticks (or burns!) to your bakeware. In the past, we’ve professed our love for the King Arthur Pre-Cut Parchment Paper which comes in half sheets, perfect for batches of cookies. However, we love the variety and bargain of this bundle, which includes a whopping 140 half sheets, 140 quarter sheets, and 100 cake pan rounds. Parchment rolls from the grocery store can cost upwards of $7, only for it to run out shortly after, so getting almost 400 sheets for this price is a steal. It’s safe to say that you’ll be set for holiday baking and beyond!
These sheets are coated with a food-grade natural silicone, resulting in a high-performing nonstick and grease-proof surface. We’re talking cookies with even, golden brown bottoms and cakes that lift easily from the pan, free from pools of butter or oil. As an added bonus, the packaging is sustainable and can be put in your recycling bin as it’s made from recycled paper and wood pulp. The parchment paper is even fully compostable!
While you can certainly buy rolls of parchment paper from the store (especially the dollar store!), there’s no doubt that these pre-cut sheets will make life easier. Parchment paper can be incredibly fussy, especially when it keeps rolling in on itself when you lay it on a baking sheet. And who else wastes a ton of paper trying to cut it to fit a round cake pan? The idea of just pulling a sheet from the box and laying it perfectly flat on the pan makes me want to get in the kitchen and start baking right now!
Not only will this bundle of parchment paper sheets save you time and hassle in the kitchen, but it will also make for a thoughtful gift your favorite baker will love. There’s an entire collection of pre-cut parchment paper at Kana to suit your needs in the kitchen, including a cake baking bundle and air fryer sheets. Once you try these sheets, you’ll wonder how you went so long without them!
