Meat-tenderising hammer

Used in the preparation of the German favourite Weiner schnitzel, a tenderizing hammer is crucial to ensure that the veal does not end up chewy or tough. It also helps to make sure the schnitzel is thin and cooks evenly.

Spaetzle press

Or a board and knife for making homemade noodles (spätzle), which are similar to Italian pasta.

Bundt cake tin

Used for making German "Guglhupf", a big marble or bundt cake with a distinctive ring-shape and hole in the middle.

Cookie cutters (stars, angels, hearts, moons, trees)

Cookies are very popular in Germany, particularly at Christmas time, and are often cut into shapes.
