A bench scraper is a very useful tool to have. I got mine (turns out it's the ATK fave) and some of my baking pans and sheets (like my half and quarter sheets) at a local restaurant supply place.

I love my cake pan similar to a Bundt pan. That lovely hole in middle means a cake never slumps or humps in the middle due to oven temperature variation and the cake is so easy to decorate. Even slicing for serving is clean and neat every time. Best gift for a new cook.

I gave my stand mixer to my mother because I was perfectly happy using my old electric hand mixer but I could not live without a good quality food processor, silicone spatulas, digital scales and my c1880's bone handled steel dinner knifes. Finding pre-stainless steel knifes is like hunting unicorns these days but if you are a keen cook and you ever come across one, grab it and run! The blades are flexible and wafer thin, they sharpen to a razor edge and they're the best all-round utility knife you'll ever have. I absolutely treasure mine and I'd be lost without them.
