Just saw Chowhound's picks for must have baking items - along with their recommended brands, of course. I made a list of what I have and don't have. Bear in mind I am mostly a bread baker and make very little sweets and deserts. Although when I visit my mother, I do get into baking pies again, which I have been making since childhood with her. Somehow I do not make them much now, except the occasional crumble.

Without further ado, here is their list and my Y and N next to them. Not going into the brands I have either.

Be curious to know how many enthusiastic bakers are on here.

Stand mixer No
Hand mixer Yes
Oven thermometer Y (and food thermometer too, which they should have listed as well)
Non stick silicone mats N (but been thinking about it)
Digi scale Y
Pastry bags and piping tips N
Wooden rolling pin N (but maybe I'll get back into pies again)
Bench scraper Y
Half sheet pans Y
Cooling racks Y
Balloon whisk Y (2 actually, S and L)
Liquid measuring cups Y
Cookie scoop N
Sifter N
Mixing bowls Y
Pastry blender N
Silicon spatula Y
Offset spatula N
Round cutters N
Grater / Zester Y
