Kitchen Essentials for Thanksgiving Dinner

Updated on March 22, 2013

Prepare a Perfect Roast

Deep Fryers - Make the tastiest bird this Thanksgiving with your own deep fryer. Fryers give your bird added flavor and are a man's way to make a turkey feast. A personal favorite of myself.

Roaster Ovens - Season your turkey and let it cook. They can also bake, steam, slow cook, and keep your food warm for your events.

Roasting Pans - A flimsy disposable pan is a dangerous. Invest in something practical and durable to handle this years turkey.

Dutch Ovens - For those delicious holiday roasts, stews, and casseroles

Chop, Slice, and Dice

Blenders - The easiest way to get perfect Hollandaise is to use a blender. Also, handy for any seasonal drinks you wish to create.

Peelers- Must have to peel those fruits and veggies for your special holiday dishes.

Food processors - Grinding meats/veggies to put into your holiday casseroles.

Precision Matters

Carving Knives - Every kitchen wouldn't be complete without the perfect carving knives. Make sure your kitchen is fully stocked with knives for the perfect cut! Kuhn Rikon Nonstick Pumpkin Knife is favorite of mine for carving out a pumpkin. Kuhn makes some of the most inexpensive and durable knives around.

Cutting boards - Cutting boards are important to have in order to preserve your knives and prevent damage to your counter tops. They vary in shapes and sizes and are relatively inexpensive. Plastic boards are durable and cheap. While, wood is better for knives and has a lower risk of bacterial contamination than that of plastic.

Thermometers - Important for insuring a safe eating temperature. A turkey needs to be at 165 °F or higher for safety.

Timers - Don't be the fool that burns the roast!

Measuring cups & spoons - For those holiday deserts, make sure you measure properly.

Flavorful Turkey

Flavor injectors - Your guests will be thankful for this added mouthwatering flavor. Choose your flavoring and make sure you generously inject your bird.

Turkey Baster - Cook your turkey with your own juices or sauces in order to get that ultimate seasoning.
