Baking stone

Pizzeria-quality pizza can now be made at home just like it is in Italy with the help of this pizza stone. This stone distributes heat evenly and provides a nice crispy-coloured crust. This also can resist up to 1400 F, which means it can handle the most intense oven temperatures!

Not only for pizza, but it’s a must-have for all types of bread baking!

You can use cups and spoons to measure your ingredients, but you should invest in a decent set of scales for accuracy. This set from Myweigh weighs up to 6 kilos in 1 gram increments.

For more accuracy, a larger set of scales can be supplemented with precision scales. These provide accuracy down to 0.01 grams, perfect for weighing small amounts of yeast and salt.

Pizza and bread bakers peel

The Zulay Kitchen Bamboo Pizza Peel is the answer to getting bread in and out of the oven without any burns! Some flimsy pizza peels splinter, warp, and end up breaking in half, but this one is made of top-grade bamboo!

This peel is not just for pizzas. It’s great for bread too! It’s the perfect combination for bakers who bake with a baking stone.

Every detail of this was designed by bakers, for bakers to help bake better bread every time. It’s a thick black cast iron pan for baking bread inside the oven.

Collection Of Sourdough Starters

dried sourdough starter

A San Francisco Sourdough Style Starter Culture is the perfect gift for any sourdough lover! This is a no-fail sourdough starter that can help beginners make delicious, perfect bread every time. You also get a whole wheat and rye starter too!

This comes with instructions to guide you through the process of making sourdough bread, and it even has some recipes for starters and other fun ways to use it!

You can view the latest price of this on Amazon.



A dough thermometer is used to monitor dough temperature. This is important for bread as yeast is very temperature reliant. If the dough is too cold, it will take a long time to rise. Too warm, and it will turn out gassy and sticky.

A temperature probe is not essential for making bread, but they sure make it easier! Use one to improve consistency, timing and eradicate errors. I suggest adding it to your Christmas list!

Bread Sling

Sourdough bread bakers would love this nonstick bread sling by 5 Star Moon bakery! It’s perfect for baking sourdough bread, and it makes the process so much easier. This nonstick silicone baking sheet helps to take baked goods out of the oven safely. With this, there are no more burns or accidents in the kitchen. Plus, these mats can be used over and over again. They come in an eye-catching design that will look great on any countertop too!
