I'm a holiday baker and these 15+ early Black Friday kitchen deals are in my cart

On your mark, get set...bake! (Photos: Amazon)

Ready for some sugar and spice? From now until January, our ovens will be cranking out cookies with holiday flare. As a baker, this is, hands down, my favorite time of year (if we're not counting summer). Right now, I have a loaf of pumpkin bread cooling and I'm eager to get my hands more dirty with flour and sugar. My baker's rack is practically tipping over with tools that help me make my holiday cookies, cakes and bread tasty, pretty and efficient — all of which you can find on Amazon with Black Friday discounts ahead of the big day. I sifted through the retail giant's offerings and picked out the best deals on baking gadgets that will help make your holiday treats memorable.

Meat thermometer

With over 52,000 five-star reviews, this tool is a hot item and at 60% off, it's a hot deal!
$13 at Amazon

You’ll probably need a digital thermometer for any meat you make for the holidays, but you can also use one to check the doneness of quick breads, cakes and muffins instead of using a cake tester or toothpick. This one is one of the most popular at Amazon with 52,000 five-star reviews — and it's 60% off for Black Friday.

Silicone baking mats

This pack of easy-to-clean silicone mats has three different sizes: 8.5 x 13 inches, 10 x 14.5 inches, and 16.5 x 11.5 inches. They're non-stick and oven-safe up to 480 °F.
$13 at Amazon

A silicone baking mat is a game changer in the kitchen — it keeps your cookies from sticking to your baking sheet without cooking spray like parchment paper only the silicone mat is reusable (and keeps cookie sheets clean!).

Cooling racks

Whether you need to replace a cooling rack or you're a first time baker, this is an incredible deal — and it has more than 20,000 five-star ratings.
$18 at Amazon

A good cooling rack will help your cookies, cakes, scones and anything else you want to bake from drying out — it also gets you to eating time a lot faster.

Loaf pan

This loaf pan comes in three different sizes and is made of heavy gauge steel with nonstick coating so your breads and cakes come out in one piece. At 39% off, this is a solid investment.
$11 at Amazon

Pumpkin bread, cranberry loaf and (gasp!) fruitcake — you can’t have any of those confections without a loaf pan. Just make sure you have the right size for your recipe. This pan is textured to make it non-stick and it comes in an 8-inch and 9-inch version.

Cookie sheet

These are about the best baking sheets you can get — and there are about 40,000 five-star fans who would agree. And on top of a great deal, they're stunning to look at.
$39 at Amazon

Of course you need a cookie sheet for all your snowflake cutouts candy cane silhouettes, but you’re probably going to need more than one because there is a multitude of uses beyond cookies for these baking sheets.

Rolling pin

This rolling pin is a classic for a reason. At less than $15 with over 14,000 five-star reviews, this one is a no-brainer.

$9 at Amazon

Even if you only plan to bake cookies for the holidays, a bench scraper is a tool you’ll use year-round. A bench scraper will help you scrape, lift and cut dough, but it’s also magical for cleaning crumbs and debris from counters and tables — it’s kind of like a crumber that waiters use and white tablecloth restaurants.

Cookie cutters

This set of stainless steel cookie cutters comes with five holiday shapes: snowman, Christmas tree, gingerbread man, candy cane and snowflake.
$7 at Amazon

This set of cookie cutters has all the traditional shapes your family and guests want around the holidays and it’s just eight bucks. You can’t beat that price for holiday joy.

Flour duster

Sprinkling flour over your work area is a lot harder than it seems if you want to distribute it evenly. You can thank the folks at Oxo for this gadget — it helps you dust your surfaces without using too much or too little flour for your baking ambitions. It can also be used to sprinkle colored sugar and powdered sugar over your cookies.

Parchment paper

Your need for parchment paper won't end with the holidays. Clip the on-page coupon for the full discount.
$13 at Amazon

Parchment paper allows you to bake cookies without sticking to the baking sheet, but you can use it for quick breads and cakes to make it easy to release them from their pans.

Cookie scoops

This set of stainless steel cookie scoops comes with three sizes of scoop diameters: 1.6 inches, 2 inches and 2.4 inches.
$10 at Amazon

For really impressive drop cookies, a cookie scoop is a must. It works exactly like an ice cream scoop only it yields a smaller ball. The results are perfectly round cookies. This set comes with three sizes.

Pie plates

This pie plate is made with tempered glass, making is microwave, oven, freezer, and dishwasher safe.
$17 at Amazon

For pies, a glass pie plate is a classy way to display your confection. This one is popular at a great price.

You can't beat the lightweight convenience of aluminum for your pies — and you can't beat the price.
$26 at Amazon

This deal will save you more than just money on your purchase — you might just scrape up a few extra cookies with this set.
$7 at Amazon

Silicone is taking over the kitchen with its heat-resistance, but its flexibility makes it ideal for getting all the last bits of dough and batter from your mixing bowls. This set is practically guaranteed to scrape out another cookie's worth of dough.

Whether you're slathering bread with butter or applying egg wash to your pies, silicone pastry brushes do the job without shedding fibers in your food.
$7 at Amazon

Pastry brushes made with hair or synthetic fibers are a nuisance. More often than not, they shed when you're applying egg washes and melted butter on items. These silicone pastry brushes eliminate that problem and they come at a hefty discount.

These heat-resistant silicone potholders are made with a non-slip grip and a terrycloth lining for comfort. Clip the on-page coupon for the full discount.
$6 at Amazon

If you've been relying on a kitchen towel to take hot pans off the stove and casseroles out of the oven, it's time for an easy and safe upgrade. These oven mitts have a silicone exterior that's heat resistant to prevent you from burning your hands and the inside is a soft terrycloth to keep your hands comfortable — and at 50% off, you don't want to pass these up.
