If you’re in the market for safer, healthier kitchenware, you’ll love this list of my favorite nontoxic bakeware…
Nontoxic bakeware is an important part of reducing toxins in the home. When I first learned about the dangers of cooking and baking with plastics, certain metals such as aluminum, and nonstick coatings, it became a high priority to replace our unhealthy kitchenware with nontoxic solutions.
I jumped into research mode, searching for nontoxic bakeware and kitchen tools that were both safe and high performing. Lucky you: my research will save you the time of hunting down the perfect nontoxic bakeware for your kitchen!

Make Over Your Kitchen with Nontoxic Bakeware
These are the best measuring cups ever! I’ve rarely been so pleased with a purchase. Seriously. Every time I use these cups (which is pretty darn often) it’s a joy. They are the perfect measuring cups and you should buy a set for everyone you love.
I wish I had a second set of these spoons, they’re that awesome. Read the Amazon reviews for all the juicy details, but here are a few highlights: the narrow shape allows easy access to all sorts of containers including spice jars; the unique handle keeps these spoons steady when resting on a flat surface; the measurements are permanently stamped onto spoon handles.
PS–Maybe this is obvious, but pleases take the spoons off the ring. Who uses a measuring spoon attached to four other spoons?
I have two of these loaf pans and could easily use two more. They get regular use in my gluten free kitchen: Paleo Almond Butter Bread, Chocolate Zucchini Bread, and Banana Chocolate Chip Bread are probably the top three uses for my trusty stainless steel loaf pans.
These baking sheets receive almost daily use in my kitchen. Once again, I’ve got two and could use at least two more. We’re constantly using them to roast veggies, cook bacon, crisp nuts, and bake crackers, cookies, and biscuits, etc.
Pyrex is an American classic, and for good reason. Efficiency tip: buy only Pyrex dishes that come with lids. And by the way, I do not recommend the newer Easy Grab Pyrex dishes–the oversized handles are not practical for fridge storage.

This parchment paper arrives at my doorstep in my Amazon Subscribe & Save order. I use it all the time! Cracker dough is a cinch to roll out between two sheets of parchment paper. It’s also fantastic for baking bread, or more specifically, for removing baked bread from the pan. We use it to bake bacon (yes, really) and to line a nonstick baking sheet that is still waiting to be replaced with a stainless steel version.
