Helene Dujardin, of Tartellete, recommends some essential pastry tools:
The best tool when rolling out pastry dough without too much flour (“Mine is out all the time”): Flour Duster
It’s simple but so effective. Perfect for lightly dusting flour on cooking surfaces. Simply dip the end of the wand in the flour and squeeze handles to gently and evenly sprinkle across your desired surface. Spring action keeps flour from falling out all at once. It’s a timeless tool that any baker can appreciate.
Best tool for cookies: Silpat Nonstick Silicone Baking Mat
Baking has never been so easy. This mat turns any pan into a nonstick surface with no greasing necessary. Cleaning is just as easy, simply wipe it down using hot water and dish soap, shake off any excess water, and hang or lay it flat on an even surface to dry.
Best tool for novice at rolling dough: Rolling Pin Rings
It is easy to use and you get even thickness through out. No more guessing!
