    Oven

    Probably the most important of 'em all on this list, an oven is pivotal cause no baker ever "really baked" without one.

OTGs are multipurpose and bake most things perfectly well. But if you've been baking for a while and are looking for an upgrade, the Morphy Richards Convection Microwave Oven will cost you under INR 15,000 for 25 litre capacity and you will be able to cook other dishes and bake too.

    Measuring is center in the world of baking and no, you can never wing it when it comes to this.

This AmazonBasics Stainless Steel Digital Scale has an led display and can weigh up to 5 kgs and displays results in ounces, grams or pounds. 

    Whisk And Hand Or Stand Mixer

    Buy Inalsa Hand Mixer Easy Mix | Powerful 250 Watt Motor | Variable 7 Speed Control | 1 Year Warranty | (White/Red) Online at Low Prices in India - Amazon.in

    A whisk is almost always used in every baking recipe and while a manual mix will be all you need for simple recipes, it's always nice to have a hand mix or a stand mixer to do the more heavy duty jobs. If you're on a budget and tight on space too, a hand mixer is what you should pick; it works as well as a stand mixer does. Stand mixers are more luxurious, also functional and take up considerable space. For the more simple jobs invest in these Stainless Steel Whisks or this high-end Stand Mixer in champagne to grace your kitchen top.

    Although an oven will set off and make you think you won't need a timer when baking, think again. You still need to keep track of dough resting or and if a recipe takes longer to bake, more often than not people tend to forget or don't really hear the oven ring. This is where a kitchen timer comes handy. You could use it to time other dishes too. This Kitchen Timer is stainless steel and looks super cute. Check it out.
