Bakeware, Baking Utensils & Mixing Bowls

Nothing tastes as good as homemade baked goodies. The baking tools you use to make them are just as important as the recipe you choose. Here you'll find useful baking accessories, helpful silicone pot holders and baking mats, and pie making tools that will help you unleash your pie making prowess.


Make your life easier and your home baked treats tastier with baking tools created with your success in mind. One of our favorites is Tovolo's silicone baking mats. They create a non-stick surface that insulates your pan so your goodies won't burn, are cling resistant so you don't need to grease your pan, and they clean up with a simple wipe of your wet rag. Their silicone pastry mat is just as amazing with a large work space that has measurements and a ruler printed right on the mat. The non-stick silicone surface is the real genius behind the pastry mat that makes rolling out your dough and lifting off your pie crust or sugar cookies an easier job than it's been before, plus super easy to clean up when you're done.

Let us show you how you can simplify your baking with our helpful pie making tools, baking accessories, and more from Smith and Edwards. Don't forget to check out our great supply of spoons, spatulas, and tongs that will further help you whip up and serve your favorite treats.
