This article is dedicated to the people who just started off in baking, still deciding if baking is for them or not or do not want to spend so much on baking tools. The first group of people who are new to baking may want to try out a certain type of baking tool first, like sort of a practice, before investing in a better one. The second group of people who are still deciding about doing baking, won’t feel the heart pain of spending an initial significant amount of money on baking tools should they feel that baking is not for them. The third group of people are probably not so particular about baking tools or are baking in small amount leisurely.
If you are reading this, you probably are 1 of the 3 types of people mentioned here in this article.
Over the years, Daiso has more and more variety of baking tools to suit customer’s baking needs. Here are the 10 baking tools you can get from Daiso and start baking right away.

3) Measuring Cups, Glass Beakers and Spoons
Measuring cups are a common sight at Daiso and only recently the glass measuring beakers started to surface on their shelves.
