The most important issue for baking in the kitchen will be a convenient area for kneading and rolling the dough. This is not for you to cut the salad, here you have to work with a rolling pin in a big way, and the flour will fly in different directions. Western culinary experts believe that it is most convenient to roll the dough on a quartz or marble countertop. For example, on marble, butter and margarine heats up faster when mixed and rolled out, resulting in an elastic dough..
Well, stone countertops really have many advantages, but our grandmothers somehow managed to bake pies by rolling out the dough on an ordinary wooden, cleanly cleaned and scraped table made of boards. So don’t pay too much attention to this point. The main thing is to provide a large enough working area in the kitchen for working with dough..
The next thing to think about is a comfortable, modern oven with numerous functions. Or just an oven. The main thing is that the baked goods do not burn. Such an oven will require its own place, because, as you know, modern trends imply the separation of the hob and oven. With a conventional electric or gas stove, choosing a place was easier.
Experts argue about which oven is the best for creating culinary masterpieces, gas or electric. Most people believe that baked goods rise more evenly in an electric oven, and there is less risk of burning. In any case, only you can choose here.
Another baking tool is a bread maker. A convenient and relatively compact unit that can knead dough and bake bread. You can find a place for a bread maker on a special shelf, in a kitchen cabinet, or directly on a countertop if you use it daily.
For baking, you will also need such important attributes as a flour sieve, a food processor for mixing dough, a rolling pin (and more), tins for baking muffins and other confectionery products, baking trays. All this needs to be stored somewhere, even in unusual, unconventional places. And you also have to keep a supply of flour and sugar in a dry and dark place – the most important confectionery ingredients..
It is noteworthy that the baking surface is specially made lower than the rest of the countertop. It will be really more convenient to work with the dough. It turns out a separate area intended specifically for baking, literally a mini-bakery, where the main work takes place. For baking, you can also select a separate corner, for example, a table that serves as an island, with a comfortable and spacious table top. In general, the main thing is that you are comfortable working on culinary masterpieces, and everything you need is at hand.
