Basic Tools
DIGITAL KICHEN SCALE
I am using the predecessor of the Soehnle Page Profi Digital Kitchen Scale. It is very reliable, easy to clean and switches off automatically when it is not used.
DIGITAL MICRO SCALE
A micro scale is used to measure ingredients like salt, yeast, baking powder or gelatin that change the preparation already through very small quantities. A micro scale with a spoon attachment allows to measure ingredients without an additional container and makes it easier to transfer the measured ingredient into the preparation.
DIGITAL KITCHEN THERMOMETER
The GDEALER Digital Instant Thermometer has a foldable proble which makes it possible to place it into a container in a stable way. It is waterproof, has a clear display and switches off automatically once folded together.
SILICONE BAKING MAT
The Silpat Silicone Baking Mat is the standard mat used in most professional kitchens.
BAKING SHEET
Gobel Baking Sheets are nonstick and even for uniform baking.

Basic Ingredients
PECTIN NH
Pectin NH I mainly use in glazes and for binding fruit purees. It gives the preparation a smooth texture.
