Turkey Lifters

Updated on October 6, 2010

What are Turkey Lifters?

Turkey Lifters are used to get your turkey from the roasting pan to the cutting board or serving platter.

There are a couple of different types of Turkey Lifters. One being a set of mini pitchforks and another being a mat, silicone or metal, that you cook the turkey on which has a handle on each side for easy lifting of your turkey or roast.

A Set Of Turkey Lifters

The majority of Turkey Lifters are made of stainless steel and come in a set of two. They should be strong enough to hold the weight of your turkey. Many are strong enough to hold up to a 20 pound turkey.

Turkey Lifters are not only useful for turkey but also for large roasts as well. You can also use them to hold your turkey or roast in place while slicing.

It is important that you examine your turkey lifters prior to purchasing to make sure they are comfortable and have not only a strong, solid handle but that they are solidly constructed.

A new version of the Turkey Lifter

Many roasting pans come with a metal or teflon rack that you can use to lift your turkey or roast from the pan to your serving platter.

You can also inexpensively purchase a metal or silicone Turkey Lifter which sits underneath your turkey and has handles that you can easily use to lift your turkey out of the pan.

There are many new silicone products that have come out on the market lately.  Silicone is oven safe up to 600 degrees and is flexible and easier to manipulate than steel.
