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
These are the best tools to help create and maintain your sourdough starter.
The Beginning Baker
A must-have. Used to cut, lift & move your dough. I have both the 6″ and 8″ versions.
These scrapers easily remove sticky dough from containers, the bench, and off your fingers.
Increase Your Baking Consistency
I keep these in my flour canisters, they make transferring and measuring super easy.
Some recipes here call for “high extraction flour,” this helps sift out some bran/germ to get there.
A flavorful and strong flour perfect for bread-making
Pans & Storage
A workhorse mill that produces very fine flour. Built by hand in Austria.
An incredibly well-made, compact, and versatile deck oven. The current oven in my kitchen.
