Bake your worries away with these excellent sustainable and nontoxic bakeware essentials.

Do you love the cooler seasons? Or are you longing for warmer weather already? Wherever you fall on the seasonal spectrum, the middle ground is always here: baking.

For the cold weather lover, baking brings the coziness of the season into our kitchens—scents of vanilla and spice all tickling our senses. For the warmer-weather-wisher, it’s, well, complicated. We can either eat our feelings through to March (yay!) or we can take comfort in the warmth coming from kitchens instead of the sun. Either way, we see baking in your future! So turn on the holiday music, crack open your favorite vegan cookbooks, and let’s get baking.

Jill’s Picks

1. Wolf Gourmet Stand-Up Mixer

Bring style, sustainability, and quality craftsmanship into your kitchen with the Wolf Gourmet mixer. This stellar tool is a must for the avid baker. No more hand mixers or cheap standups. The Wolf Gourmet will be the last—and best!—mixer you purchase. Whip up cake and cookie batter, bread dough, and so much more.

You’ll feel extra inspired by the purchase, too. Wolf Gourmet has strong sustainability commitments from manufacturing to shipping. More than 75 percent of the company’s stainless steel comes from recycled metal, and its manufacturing is low on wastewater and harmful solvents. The Energy Star-rated appliances come in recyclable or returnable packaging.

2. Roul ’Pat Silicone Pastry Mat

How did we ever bake without silicone mats? Made from sustainable, food-grade, non-stick silicone, the Roul ‘Pat Silicone Pastry Mat reduces the need for parchment or cooking sprays. And it also makes clean-up a breeze. You’ll want to bake just to use these!

Made in France, these durable, waterproof, nonstick mats are perfect to also roll out dough, make candy, or line your bakeware.

3. Emile Henry Rectangular Baking Dish

This French family-owned cookware brand uses clay as the base of its collections. This new baking dish is part of the brand’s first new designs in more than two decades. The company doesn’t use harmful solvents or chemicals in its heat-resistant bakeware—and everything is hand-finished.

The versatile nature means you can use it for everything from casseroles to cakes. Emile Henry offers unmatched heating and it’s safe for broilers and microwaves. You can even take it from the freezer to the oven without risk of thermal shock. This is a must for any home chef.

4. Made In Bakeware Set

Need it all? If you’re refreshing your bakeware collection, do it the nontoxic way. Conventional cookware and bakeware can be coated in Teflon and other chemicals that are harmful to you and the planet. Made In uses centuries of craftsmanship in its French Porcelain bakeware, made the old-fashioned way—as in, safer, stronger, and more effective.

Safe for temperatures up to 650°F, the thermal shock-resistant collection is versatile, sturdy, and non-porous. It cleans up easy and looks gorgeous on any holiday table, too.

Jackie’s Picks

5. Lodge Cast Iron Skillet

Even though I love to cook—I worked as a chef for years in college—I keep my kitchen gadgets pretty minimal. I am not a big fan of clutter and from moving around a lot, I found very early on how many boxes my kitchen required each move, and how heavy those boxes were.

Enter this cast iron skillet. From fruity galettes to roasted potatoes there are very few things you cannot cook, bake, roast in one of these bad boys. You can also bring it out onto the grill or open fire. I love Lodge because the products are built to last. This skillet is practically indestructible—and if you take care of it well, it will live on longer than you. All of the brand’s pans are made with the highest quality and are packaged and shipped in recycled and biodegradable materials. Additionally, the company tracks all its energy conservation and recycling programs to ensure they are doing them to the full extent.

6. Caraway Linens Set

Any other messy chefs amongst us? Or am I the only one? It’s hard to keep sugar, flour, and other baking powders from flying all over the kitchen—so good linens are a must.

Launched in 2019, Caraway is known for its non-toxic and nonstick cookware but the brand also has clean linens. From aprons and towels to the necessary oven mitts this set from Caraway has all you need to stay, somewhat, clean in the kitchen.

7. Great Jones Mixing Bowl Set

No kitchen is complete without a good set of mixing bowls. And why not make them cute and non-toxic while you are at it? Whether using every counter surface area for holiday prep or for everyday use, a set of mixing bowls is essential.

I love Great Jones as it was a brand, founded by best friends, who shared a passion for food and supporting female chefs. All of the products are made with non-toxic materials such as stainless steel. The brand also provides resources for customers who wish to recycle their old cookware.
