It has been said that cooking is an art while baking is a science. Whether or not that sentiment holds any water, all good bakers—from those who live by the recipe book to those who find joy in forgoing it—require quality, no-nonsense equipment to get their dishes right. Stainless steel, then, is the material of choice for those who value kitchens built on precision and durability, and perhaps see an added bonus in straightforward design. Whether you’re braving a temperamental soufflé or making your nth adjustment in an attempt to make apple pie just as your grandmother made it, these are the tools that will always see you from preparation through to presentation. – Arianna Lim
