    Wonder Cup

    This measuring gadget is great for sticky substances (honey, molasses, corn syrup) or semi-solids (pumpkin puree, peanut butter) that are tough or sloppy to measure with a conventional measuring cup. You adjust the gradation to the amount you need, then pour or pack in the ingredient. You then slide down the clear plastic portion of the measure and it scrapes everything cleanly into the bowl.

    Rolling Pin Rings

    Have trouble rolling your pie dough to an even thickness? These simple silicone bands are an easy, low-tech aid. Just slip them on either end of your rolling pin (they stretch, so they work with either French-style dowel pins or American-style ball-bearing pins with handles), and they’ll prevent you from rolling the dough too thin in any spots. Even if you don’t struggle with rolling dough evenly, the bands make it a snap to measure the thickness of your dough without fussing with a ruler.The color-coded set includes bands for 3/8-inch, 1/4-inch, 1/8-inch and 1/6-inch thicknesses.

    T-Fal Ingenio Rolling Pin

    Getting pie crust right can be challenging for any baker, but T-Fal’s Ingenio rolling pin makes it that much easier. The nonstick surface prevents dough from sticking, meaning less flour for your work surface (and hence, less mess). Built-in legs keep the pin from rolling away when you’re done with it.

    Oxo Silicone Baking Cups

    There are no lots of reusable silicone baking cups out there, but these ones from OXO boast some really smart features: tabs to easily remove them from the pan, plus a fill line to ensure that your cakes turn out an even height. You can use them in muffin tins, but they’re sturdy enough that you can line them up on a baking sheet if you need an extra muffin tin in a pinch.
