My powder of choice. From 20 years experience and two generations of bakers using this.

I use rumford baking powder ALLTHE TIME! I make scones, biscuits, pancakes, cakes, waffles, cornbread, muffins, and on and on and on using this brand's powder. I get really tall biscuits and scones especially, it's very satisfying. I can rely on the results. It doesn't really clump either like clabber girl or whatever that white can brand is that has aluminum in it. I choose rumford because they are aluminum free and always seems fresh and smooth, giving me great results. I like the helpful measuring part of the lid too. I am never without a spare can in my pantry.
I ordered these on Amazon for my sister in Santa Barbara, her Vons by her house only has that other brand I mentioned that I grew up using with my mother, I recalled my mom having to first smooth out all the lumps in her hand before adding it to the mix, and my sister's baking powder at her house of this brand was the same. I thought they put the aluminum and all the cruddy ingredients in there to inhibit this... anyway, I used it at her place and I got sad little scones. Could have been a combination of it being older powder or an oven that is out of whack...but I couldn't leave without ordering her the good stuff and an oven temp sensor. I threw out her gross baking powder and left her my recipe and heard back in a week that her scones came out fluffy and her oven runs 25degrees hotter according to the temp gauge I got.
Romford truly is the best on the market. I trust it in all my cooking which is also mostly organic. I don't skimp on quality when I am spending a lot of money on ingredients. You can likely find it at a higher end grocery store that caters to quality foods, not bulk or processed foods with low prices.
I buy mine for about $3 a can. Worth having a back up at all times. Many recipes call for 3tsp/1 tbsp of powder at a time.
Cans can be reused for draining off fat or making into rattle toys for toddlers. My boys love getting the cans when I am finished with the powder.
Hope this helps.
