This list of my favorite bread making tools results from countless tests to find the best tools to help you make sourdough bread at home. If you're new to baking, start with the tools listed below in Sourdough Starter Creation & Management and The Beginning Baker. Once you become more serious about baking, head down to the Increase Baking Consistency section to build your toolset.

Your Sourdough Starter
The Beginning Baker
These scrapers easily remove sticky dough from containers, the bench, and off your fingers.
Increase Your Baking Consistency
The best, and most cost-effective, bread knife I have yet to use. For more knives, see my bread knife guide.
The perfect rectangular tub (14″x15″x5″) for 4kg+ batches of dough. It even fits in the B&T Proofer.
Some recipes here call for “high extraction flour,” this helps sift out some bran/germ to get there.
Pans & Storage
I use these to store all my flour (they hold 5 pounds). They are airtight, light, and solid—just the best.
