We know Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks, but it’s also THE holiday for food lovers. Some of us spend weeks, even months, planning the perfect meal for our family to enjoy. With all that pressure of baking a moist turkey, lump-free gravy, and perfect pumpkin pies, you want to make sure nothing goes wrong. We have some of the essential cooking tools and gadgets so you won’t have to worry about a thing!
When it comes to baking the star of the show, a traditional roasting pan isn’t always the best option. They’re bulky, expensive, and their tall thick sides prevent the bird from crisping properly. Instead, try roasting it on a wire rack set in a rimmed baking sheet like the one in this cookware combo set.
Don’t leave the fate of your turkey in a plastic pop-up timer, the Taylor Digital Thermometer from Buydig.com is the most accurate way to ensure that your bird is cooked to the proper temperature.
Whether you are preparing the traditional mashed potatoes with your KitchenAid 5-Speed Ultra Power Hand Mixer from Buydig.com, or your signature cranberry salad you created with help from the Cuisinart 14-Cup Large Food Processor, you’ll need a few essential tools for the prep work. This 10-Piece Anchor Hocking Mixing Bowl Set has the perfect sized bowl for any side dish you are making.
Maybe you aren’t the one hosting the big feast this year, but you are preparing a few dishes to contribute to dinner at another family member’s home. The Anchor Hocking 3qt Essentials BakeNTake Tote will help you avoid any unforeseen spills while traveling with your hot or cold foods.
On Thanksgiving day, the turkey may be the star of the show, but some would rather skip the main event and start with the finale. Dessert prep requires a few essential tools to make preparation flawless. The key to creating the perfect pumpkin pies, pecan tarts or salted-caramel cheesecake is measuring the ingredients accurately. The easiest way to do that is to measure both the volume and weight using the American Weigh Scales Digital Spoon Scale.
Once you have correctly measured your ingredients, you’ll need a way to flawlessly mix them. From the pie crust to the cake mix, the KitchenAid professional 600 Series Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer will help you mix, knead and whip ingredients into the tastiest desserts to complete your Thanksgiving feast.
It’s all about presentation. After you have completed your delicious desserts, you’ll want to display them. The Anchor Hocking 3-Tier Platter Set will showcase your smaller dessert pieces.
