In any project, half the battle is having the right tools. If you enjoy baking, that means not only have the right bakeware and utensils, but also knowing the proper care and storage of these items so that they last longer and provide better results. Nonstick bake ware, for instance, must be cleaned carefully to preserve the nonstick surface. Likewise, wooden utensils are more prone to bacterial contamination and must be maintained properly to thwart food-borne illness. Knowing how best to care for your baking equipment is one aspect of being a better baker.
