This scale is an essential tool in my kitchen not only for bread making but also for other stuff. I weigh ingredients and the loaves.
- It can measure up to 8kg.
- Modes: g, kg, lb:oz, oz, lb.
- It has the famous Baker’s Percentage function.
- Programmable auto-off feature.
- It is very powerful.
- You can add a lot of attachments to it like food grinder, pasta maker, food processor
- It includes a dough hook (very useful for bread makers), flat beater and wire whip.
In my opinion, the thermometer doesn’t have to be expensive. You can also buy a cheap one like this.
It is very important to score the bread before placing it in the oven. It will look nice and it will allow the gases to escape and you will not end up with an ugly bread. You can use a normal knife but it will not cut the dough very well.

I have two of these in my oven. I like to bake my loaves and pizza on the stone (with a parchment paper over the stone – easier to clean).
A must-have in any kitchen.
Put this over the counter and form your loaves on it. Easy to clean.

SOURDOUGH STARTER CONTAINER
If you bake sourdough bread then it is a must to have a nice jar with lid for your starter. My starter has a name so it has to have her own little house.
I don’t use this as much but from time to time is very useful.
