Good sources of baking supplies?

Hi All,

I recently have gotten into artisan bread. I never knew it could be done so well at home!! I have a pizza stone which I like quite well... but my peel is horrible. I am also looking to get some other less common tools like a couche and a bread lame. I also want some good storage containers for flour (so I can scoop in easily), and a larger one for dough.

Amazon has a lot of stuff but I find it clunky to navigate unless I know exactly what I am looking for. Do you have any good recommendations for places to get tools and supplies for the artisan baker?

Also... what do you recommend for a no-knead cookbook? I have "Artisan bread in 5 minutes a day" but the lack of baker's percentages is a HUGE oversight in my opinion.

Thanks for the advice!
Sam

KAF would be a good place to start. I'm sure with some effort you could find similar items at better prices but I like to peruse their site.

Not every place has it, but some do. We have a restaurant and special baking supply stores here. They have anything and everything you can imagine.
