At four years old, Abby Dodge baked cake after cake in her light-bulb-powered Easy Bake oven.

She believes every baker should have one, so here's your chance to snag one free, along with some other must-haves on Abby's list.

To win Abby's must-have baking tools, simply leave a comment below. On Monday, December 17, I'll pick a comment at random, and the lucky winner will have his or her prize pack in time for this year's cookie swap. (Now closed)

Update: Congratulations to lobsterwoman. Her comment was picked at random and she's the lucky winner of this giveaway. Thanks to all who posted a comment!

sevparkmom writes: How fun it would be to have a kitchen full of these useful tools. Even more fun will be to share these with family forming their new kitchens! This was my first visit to Fine Cooking and will not be my last. . . Beef Wellington for Christmas dinner and I think I will try making rolls for the very first time also - will be interesting. The videos that were available for each of these recipes were most helpful in explaining steps that could be confusing.
Wishing all who read this a very A Happy and Joyous Holiday Season for 2012! Posted: 12:34 pm on December 16th

I am neither a cook nor a baker but I have some of the tools and who wouldn't love some more. Who knows, if I had more gadgets maybe it would inspire me to make some meals/goodies to impress everyone. Posted: 11:15 pm on December 15th

chefmickey writes: I love all of the Fine Cooking issues, but this issue in particular tugged at me. I've been trying to come up with the perfect kitchen for a baker. I've been baking for about six years and have been hoping to put aside the funds to redesign my kitchen. Boy was I surprised to look inside this issue and find exactly what I've been looking for! Especially the office with room for the 300 cookbooks that I've collected! Thank you Abby Dodge for allowing me to visit your wonderful space. Your ideas are invaluable!

daisy1218 writes: I have always been a fan of "Fine Cooking". I love all their recipes and I love to experiment in the kitchen. I too started at a young age baking and love to bake! But unfortunately, I don't own a nice Artisan Mixer, and would love to win all the baking tools to help make my baking more professional and successful.Without the right tools, it definitely makes the task more difficult and less enjoyable. Thank you for the opportunity to enter the contest! I look forward to the call that announces my name as the WINNER! Posted: 11:14 am on December 14th

RaheliOmSarah writes: Wow! What an AWESOME Blog you have here!! Love, love, love it!
Turns out it's a small world... although I've never even heard of Fine Cooking before today, I see the address is in Newtown, CT... the town I live in! :) I have had 2 "substitute" Kitchen Aid mixers, can't afford the real McCoy, after paying the taxes on the home my dad left me here in town, not much is left. Still, it is my greatest pleasure in life to cook gourmet meals and serve to any/everyone who will eat. Appetizers thru Desserts, all are made easier with a good mixer set, and you are offering not only, good, but THE BEST!
Amazing blog, I'll be back frequently now! Thanks:)

Curves writes: In 2004 I thought my life was over when my husband and I split up. We put our house on the market and I got to work clearing out my house of everything that wouldn’t fit in a small one-bedroom apartment, including my older model Kitchen Aid mixer with all the attachments. I replaced it with a smaller mixer that would fit in my cupboard and wasn’t too heavy to lift out when I needed it. Then an old friend and I “found” each other and before I knew it I was engaged to be married and my new life began. We ran away to San Francisco to get married – less fuss for all concerned, and no need for expensive wedding gifts. Now my life is full and I have a large kitchen where I can indulge my re-kindled love of everything kitcheny, including baking. My small mixer is ok but I yearn for my old Kitchen Aid. It would be wonderful to be able to re-stock my baking cupboard with new tools. Merry Christmas!! Posted: 9:45 pm on December 13th

LeAnnT writes: Thank you for sharing your lovely set up in your kitchen.
I too have arranged our kitchen when we did our remodel so that everything that is needed to bake is easily accessible when baking.
It is key to have everything at your finger tips.
I love to bake as feels good....smells good....and tastes delicious.
My favorite thing about baking is sharing at tasty treat with others.
Happy Holidays and Happy Baking :) Posted: 6:49 pm on December 13th

RESCOTT writes: We just moved into our new house on Halloween and it is a total fixer-upper. We took advantage of the black Friday sales to buy our kitchen suite of appliances and I can't wait to start the remodel. I've started baking and realized that my wanna-be chef fiancee does not bake much, he cooks. Needless to say we don't have a mixer so I've now broken two whisks attempting to make cookies for the holidays. It's laughable really. So this prize would be a dream come true for us!

Hurrah---i can now purchase my favorite things in purple, red and orange---so, that said, I will give away kitchen tools as long as I've got already them in my favorite colors aforementioned.

I frequently stop by my local kitchen store and try and narrow down what I would make first if I ever was able to buy this beauty which is highly unlikely, but a girl can dream right?!?! I have never been able to afford a stand mixer, I have a little hand-held that was my grandmothers and for small things it does the job but oh how great it would be to have a really great mixer. Thanks for chance to try and win one for my own kitchen!

quallslvon writes: Thanks for offering these kitchen tools. I have had my eye on this larger mixer ever since it hit the market. I was given a 4 quart Kitchenaid mixer by my in-laws when my husband and I got married in 1980. We lived in England for 10 years and I insisted on taking it and running it off of a power converter. I've always said I wish I had an odometer on my mixer. I have used it nearly everyday through the years. I recently started my own small catering company and will probably need to upgrade to this larger model eventually. How exciting it would be to win one! Thanks again. Posted: 7:09 pm on November 2nd

Gosh, love the john boos cart.
(with all the lovely baking equipment on it would even be better =) lol). Wishful thinking =)

Another thing that might make a wonderful addition to your kitchen is a pegboard. I have one in my condo and most of my baking utensils are on hung on it. Maximizes the space if you love to bake and don't have much room in the kitchen.

When is the draw date for the contest? (nevermind found it)

Happy Baking

She inspires me and challenges me to be a better baker and of course my husband and family love all the goodies that come out of my kitchen. I would love to join her for an afternoon of baking at her house and I would even do the dishes (the worst part :) So excited to try out the cookie recipe from the latest magazine.

NancyG99 writes: My first "major" gift from my boyfriend(now husband of 16 yrs) was not jewelry but a . . .Kitchen-Aid Mixer! Yes, I knew then that he was a keeper. No, two Kitchen-Aid mixers is not overkill, haven't you watched Abby's kitchen tour? ;) Posted: 8:07 am on October 23rd

And, what's not to love about this giveaway?
I fantasize about that mixer. Yes, I said fantasize.

BreadPuddn writes: I've been a pastry chef in the past, yet never owned a mixer larger than a 4 1/2 quart. When baking at home, I've been limited to recipes that aren't too big for my mixer. It'd be fabulous to have the freedom of a 7 qt! Fun baking tools too! Posted: 1:33 pm on October 22nd

oasismom writes: I love how cozy and warm your baker's kitchen is. The organization is fantastic. My 12 year old daughter is an aspiring Pasty Chef and I love discovering new and challenging techniques and being proud of her when she accomplishes a hard recipe. We love acquiring baking supplies and trying anything new. Posted: 1:11 pm on October 22nd

Drbabs writes: Abby is my hero! About a year ago, I joined her home baking group #baketogether, and I have learned so much from her about baking, cooking and creating ccommunity. She gently nags us to start cooking blogs. I'm not much of a writer and I don't have a lot of free time, so I've resisted, but she did feature one of my variations to her recipe on her website, and that made me feel so honored and appreciated. Every month I learn new tips and tricks that make my baking better and my life sweeter. Thank you, Abby! XO Posted: 5:33 am on October 10th

DeniseWaghorn writes: Wow, would this be a great way to herald the holidays! I can see why these are Abby's must-have baking tools. Of course the mixer is amazing, but the rolling pin with rings sure would help with rolling out consistent sugar cookies, and that scale would allow for measuring by weight, not volume. Hope your holidays are happy, and that you pick me! Thanks for the opportunity. Posted: 3:02 pm on October 9th

ArisGifts writes: Most of my life I have dreamed of cooking/ baking with state of the art cooking tools.

Thanktou so much for this opportunity to win such wonderful kitchen items Even if some other worthy chef wins the prize the exicitement and anticipation will bring many much joy and fun. Again I thank you.
