Need baking tools, starting from scratch

The_Whistler | Jul 10, 2008 07:37 PM

Baking has sparked my interest. I‘m trying to compose a list of items I need to order. Items being made are muffins, cookies, pizza, breads, rolls, etc.

The only baking tools I own is a cookie sheet, silicon spatula and a Pyrex measuring cup. I just ordered a 6QT KitchenAid mixer and a ceramic deep dish pizza pan. I don’t have mixing bowls, a whisk, flour or even sugar on hand except for some small sugar packets for cappuccinos so I am really starting from scratch.

Stuff I think I will need:

Pastry Board (wood, marble, silicone?)
Mixing bowls. (glass, stainless, ceramic, copper?)
Cooling rack/Cookie sheets
Baking stone
Muffin pans
Loaf pans
Baguette pan
Baking mat
Rolling Pin
Flour Sifter
Pastry Scraper
Spatula set
Measuring cups/spoons

Do I go for silicon pans? Which item if any do I need to spend more on? Anything else I should add on the list. I haven't found any baking sets worth buying. I'm not looking for the cheapest items or the most expenisve
