If you’re like me, you need a little help in the kitchen. It’s not just about making me a better cook its about making sure our food is flavorful and safe. I thought I’d make sure you had a list of some of my favorite kitchen tools for a perfect Thanksgiving Dinner.
- Cuisipro 3-in-1 Baster: Made of durable and heat-resistant transparent Tritan® material, this BPA-free baster set includes a silicone brush and nylon showerhead attachment. The 3-head-in-1-baster provides three functions: use the silicone brush to coat food evenly, then use the showerhead to quickly baste your food, and finally use the nozzle without attachment for a heavy stream. A clear window on the baster shows measurements in oz. and ml. BPA-free. 25-year warranty. Dishwasher safe, do not microwave.
- OXO Good Grips Flavor Injector: Create tender, flavorful meat and poultry—no time-consuming brining or marinating required. This innovative tool from the smart minds at OXO injects your favorite marinades right into the meat, basting it from the inside out. A large, comfortable handle makes it easy to inject flavoring at any angle. Two stainless steel needles—designed for thick or thin marinades—store safely inside injector when not in use.
- Prepara Flexible Roasting Laurel Rack: We love this tool that lets you raise your roasts for faster and healthier cooking, better heat circulation and uniform browning. This roasting laurel keeps food up and out of fatty, burnt drippings and works with baking dishes and roasting pans of any size, material and shape. The silicone is oven safe to 500°F and nonstick. BPA-free. Not for broiler, microwave or stovetop use. Dishwasher safe.
- OXO Good Grips Good Gravy Fat Separator: This fat separator from OXO makes it easier than ever to create healthier gravies, soups and sauces. A simple squeeze of the innovative trigger handle releases liquid from the bottom and leaves all the fat behind. A built-in strainer catches any solids for ultra-smooth sauces and an external drain ensures quick and easy cleanup.
- Polder Accu-Touch In-Oven Thermometer & Timer with Ultra Probe: Designed for accuracy and perfect results in the oven or on the grill, this probe thermometer features an easy-to-use touchscreen display. Program in your desired temperature or select from eight preset options. The 100-minute timer can be programmed to count up or down, and will alert you with a loud, 30-second alarm—so even if you’ve strayed away to set the table or entertain, you’ll know your food is ready.
- OXO Good Grips Adjustable Handheld Mandoline Slicer: Whether preparing au gratin potatoes or slicing ingredients for a salad, this easy-to-use handheld mandoline makes kitchen prep a breeze. Ultra-sharp, angled blades slice even soft-fleshed fruits with ease, and the nonslip feet prevent sliding during use.
