Pastry Blender

Cutting butter into pie pastry is essential for flaky pie crust. Once you’ve got a good mixing bowl, use the pastry blender to press the blades into the butter until it is integrated into the dough. When you’re done making pie, you can use it to cut butter into your biscuit dough. Show off your skills by making our recipe for classic butter pie pastry.

A plain, ol’ school ruler is a must in the kitchen. You’ll find yourself reaching for this basic ruler over and over to measure the diameter of your crust, the thickness of cookie dough or double-check the dimensions of a pie pan. Just like a food scale, it’s an invaluable tool and easy to stash right in the drawer with your other gadgets.

Food Processor

Our test kitchen tested for the best food processors out there and landed on this food processor. With so many pie crusts involving cutting butter into the dough, a food processor can speed the process up and even guarantee a better crust consistency.

Decorative Pie Crust Cutter

No matter what pies and tarts you’re whipping up, you’re going to need a few different mixing bowls. You’ll need to mix up your filling, you’ll need to cut butter into the dry ingredients or you might need to whip egg whites for meringue. So invest in the best mixing bowls for your needs—you won’t regret it!

Kitchen Scissors

Once you’ve rolled out your pie dough and gently draped it over your pie pan, you can take a pair of kitchen scissors and trim the edge of your pan so that you have a perfectly-proportioned pie.

Measuring Cups and Measuring Spoons

Precision is everything when it comes to baking pies and tarts. That’s why measuring out your ingredients is super important—we suggest investing in good measuring cups and measuring spoons so that when you’re making pretty tarts you can have consistent baking success.

Marble Pastry Board

When you’re making pie crust, or any kind of pastry, keeping your pastry cool is critical. Cold butter means flaky layers; melted butter means a mess. Using a marble pastry board, especially one that’s been chilled, will ensure that your pie crust stays cool to form those irresistible flaky layers.

For some recipes where you just can’t get enough filling, you’ll want a deeper pie dish. This Emile Henry pie pan is just a bit deeper than its classic counterpart and is perfect for accommodating all kinds of fillings, especially fruit fillings. It’s a lovely gift for pie bakers, too.

Pastry Brush

To get a shiny glaze on top of your pies and tarts, you’ll need a pastry brush. For the delicate crust and fragile fruits, we recommend a natural fiber brush. It helps give all your bakes a pretty finishing touch.

Pie Bird

When you make double-crust pies, over-filling is always an issue. You don’t want the insides to bubble over and mar the gorgeous crust. A pie bird is an old-fashioned device that can remedy this problem. Set this birdie into the top of your pie for a vent that will help release steam and prevent filling from seeping out of your pie. Learn exactly how to use a pie bird.

Pie Weights

Many pies and tarts require you to blind bake the crust prior to filling. But you can’t just pop an empty shell into the oven—you need to put some weight inside to keep the bottom nice and flat. That’s where these reusable ceramic pie weights come in handy. You can use dried beans in a pinch, but the extra heft of these specially designed weights keeps everything in order.

Pie Shield

Sometimes the crust of your favorite pie starts to brown faster than the filling can bake. Don’t fret! Prevent your crust from browning (or burning) with a pie shield. This adjustable silicone one fits any round pie pan and is much simpler to use than strips of aluminum foil.

Cast-Iron Skillet

Nope, that cast-iron skillet isn’t just for dinner. This piece of cookware is also a must for rustic cast-iron pies. These deep-dish pies are homey and packed full of delicious flavor.
