If you know and love a bread baker, you’re likely treated to homemade loaves throughout the year. Help them up their bread baking game and continue sharing the wealth with these gifts for people who like to bake bread.
The following run the gamut from basic and inexpensive tools for the beginner baker to the more advanced and expensive gifts for special family members who are artisan bakers.
Le Creuset Stoneware Heritage Loaf Pan
Stoneware bread pans are heavy and bake incredibly evenly and will likely last a lifetime. While any bread pan will make loaves, these stoneware pans will create a more even heat and bake for crusty and soft breads alike.
A knife is fine for cutting dough but a bench scraper is handy for slicing dough, scraping up sticky dough from the counter and much more. Most bread bakers will find multiple uses for this tool in all their cooking and baking adventures.
Digital Food Kitchen Scale
Measure dough accurately for evenly sized bread loaves, rolls, and more. This comes in handy in the kitchen in numerous ways but is ideal for any bread recipe that makes more than 1 loaf so that the loaves are evenly sized for baking.
Premium Hand Crafted Bread Lame
Score bread dough easily and even intricately if so desired with a lame. While a plain razor blade works, this tool makes it easier especially for folks looking to create fancier designs in their dough.
Bread Proofing Baskets
Shape oval bread loaves easily with linen lined proofing baskets. Then transfer them to baking stones for baking.
Heavy Duty Ceramic Baking Stone
Bake round or free form loaves and pizza on a heavy duty baking stone for even heat and crusty loaves.
Pizza / Bread Peel
Slide pizza or other bread loaves directly onto the baking stone with ease by using a pizza peel.
Flour Sack Dish Towels
Cotton towels come in handy for lining baskets for rising dough, for covering bowls full of dough while it rises and much more. They also make for great wrapping 'paper' for other bread baker gift items.
Enameled Cast Iron Covered Dutch Oven
Make no-knead and other crusty loaves in a heavy, covered cast-iron pan. This too has uses beyond bread baking and will likely be appreciated by any foodie on your list.
Culinary Bread Knife, 10-Inch
Nothing ruins a loaf of homemade bread like a dull knife that tears rather than cuts. Get amazing slices every time with a good quality knife.
Wooden Spoon Set
Good wooden spoons are handy for mixing and folding ingredients gently. They're also super study making them ideal for stiffer things like bread dough.
Grain/Flour Mill Electric High Speed Grinder
Granted this is an expensive gift, but for the whole grain bread baker wanting to use the freshest ingredients, a grain mill is the way to go. Easily grind whole grains into flour with an electric mill.
