Did you know that May 17th is World Baking Day? That means we have an excuse to eat delicious baked goods (not that we ever really needed one). But when it comes to cake, biscuits, pastries and bread, nothing really compares to a homemade bake. It’s time to roll up your sleeves and create some delicious goodies – and here’s some tech you need to help you do it.



KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer

Whether you’re mixing batter or kneading dough, this stand mixer gives you the power and control you need to become a star baker. You’ll be whipping up batches of delicious bakes using the dough hook, whisk and beaters included.

It also includes a 4.8-litre stainless steel bowl so you can cook things on to scales large and small. Perfect if you’ve been asked to make 24 cupcakes for the summer bake sale. You can even add more attachments further down the line – so as your baking skills increase, so will your accessory collection.

Now we’ve gotten the prep out of the way, you need to make sure your bake comes out looking as balanced and beautiful as you intended. For that, you’ll need an oven with expert baking tech built-in.


Samsung Dual Cook Flex Electric Oven

Samsung Dual Cook Electric Built-In Oven

They say that baking is all about timing. In that case, you need the Samsung Dual Cook Electric Built-In Oven in your kitchen. You could have a chocolate lava cake baking on one shelf and an olive loaf browning on the other thanks to its separate cooking zones. That’s right, you can split your oven’s temperature and time settings with no transfer of taste or smell. Amazing, right?!

Cleaning the oven after a day of baking can be a real buzz kill. But believe it or not this one actually cleans itself too. Turn on the catalytic liner at the back and it’ll quickly burn up grease and oil splashes, turning them into ash. Then, all you need to do is wipe it clean – and grab yourself a slice of that delicious cake you’ve made, of course.
