Best type of cooking and baking equipment for celiacs?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! So I'm finally ready to buy some new food prep equipment (after covering things with aluminum foil and parchment paper for nearly a year), and was wondering what material would be best for:

- cutting boards
- baking pans, sheets
- strainer and colander
- spatulas/ ladles/ etc

I assume stainless steel is good for baking stuff and colanders. I'm not sure about cutting boards though... I want to say plastic? What about silicone for ladles and such? I want to be strategic before making purchases. Any tips are appreciated.

I have a mix of things in my house, bakery, kitchen. I can cover a few of mine and why,
Colander, I have a big stainless steel one for most uses as it can hold weight. I have a grain colander by OXO out of plastic for smaller things like konjac noodles or anything else.
Cutting boards, while I do have wooden ones installed on my prep tables, I always cut stuff on the cheap thin plastic ones. They can put folded for funneling stuff (bit of effort to do this), picked up and moved easy, get 4-5 of them in different colors, one for veggies, one for fish, one for meats, etc. I can clean and sanitize easy enough and throw them away when they get too beat up.
Baking Pans, I use thick stainless ones for baking sheets for good even cooking I put down a grill mat on them for dry foods, and parchment on top for cookies, Cupcake, Muffin, Cake pans always use liners in them but I use really heavy commercial ones.
Bread pans, I use heavy commercial aluminum ones and line with parchment paper for easy removal and clean
Spatulas, bit of a mix, I have some heavy duty commercial ones that work well, but my personal favorites are the OXO Good Grips Flip and fold Omelette Spatula that is super wide and thin, and Trovolo Jar Scrapers for working with doughs.batters
Ladles and cooking spoons...again commercial stainless ones and a few high heat plastic ones
Food Storage is off topic but I love Cambro, opaque ones I get 1/3 size with seal lids and store stuff in them, 1/6pans are also great (chef thing but even use in my house) They have tall tubs for sauces/Soups but if your going to freeze soups I suggest Trovolo Icecream tubs. Large amounts I have stainless food pans in 1/2 size and full size from 2 1/"-6" deep. BIG bonus get poly liners for the size food pan so you do not need to clean much, just toss the dirty liners.
Travel Cook Ware, Nordicware is not only for commercial bake ware, they have a whole microwave cookware set so you can take with you and cook while traveling or at someone else place, just lay town paper towels and make sure you get the splatter covers.
With Measuring Cups, and Ingredient bowls I like Anchor or Pyrex, same for some at home baking dishes
Might go over more when I can recall.

Wow, thanks again for the useful advice Ennis. The thin plastic cutting boards is a great idea, especially for travel. I like the idea of installing wooden ones on the surface beneath and layering thin ones on top. I'll save this post when I go shopping.
