Must Have Kitchen Tools for a Perfect Thanksgiving Dinner
Hosting Thanksgiving can be super nerve-wracking. But having the right Kitchen Tools and Supplies can definitely make things easier and lead the way to a perfect Thanksgiving dinner, going off without a hitch.
Here are some Must Have Kitchen Tools that will help you out this Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving Dinner Must Have Supplies: The TurkeyRoasting Pan and Rack – sometimes these come in sets, but you can also purchase them separately. A roasting pan and rack is for your traditional, golden, oven-roasted turkey.
Turkey basters generally come in plastic or metal, both are pretty cheap and equally effective.
instant meat thermometer to instantly check whether your turkey is done.
Carving Board – A carving board can easily double as your everyday cutting board, but what’s special about a carving board is the groove around the edge that will catch all the excess juices, making a cleaner carving experience.
Carving Set – A sharp, handy carving set to perfectly carve and serve your turkey.
fat separator will separate fat and juices so that you can make perfect, delicious gravy.
Thanksgiving Dinner Must Have Supplies: Side Dishes, Desserts, and PrepSaucepans – With so many dishes being cooked up at once, you’ll want to make sure you have lots of working stockpots and saucepans.
Food Processor – Food processors are relatively cheap kitchen appliances, and they’re HUGE time savers. I LOVE mine, and if you don’t have one you NEED one. The one I have is pictured above: only $30 and it can chop, puree, shred, slice, and more!
microwave-safe dishes to quickly reheat your magnificent sides before serving!
Rimmed Baking Sheet – A rimmed baking sheet is the jack-of-all-trades in the kitchen. There’s so many things you can do with it, from cooking and roasting vegetables and side dishes to warming rolls and serving food.
Sharp Prep Knives – Make sure you have a nice set of sharp knives to prep all that food! And if you already have a nice set of knives, you can purchase a cheap knife sharpener to make sure your knives are all ready to go! (The sharpener I have is pictured above)
Potato Peeler – A potato peeler has an obvious use of (wait for it….) peeling potato. But they’re also great peeling and shredding other vegetables, like carrots for side dishes or apples for your Traditional Apple Pie.
Potato Masher – Well you have to have mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving! I’m almost sure it’s mandatory! Pick up a classic potato masher to whip up some classic, smooth and delicious mashed potatoes in no time!
Grater – Freshly grated cheese is seriously the best. I like to use a nice boxed grater to grate cheese and larger vegetables, but I also like to have a handheld grater to quickly grate seasonings or garnish onto a dish.
Wet Measuring Cups and Dry Measuring Cups and Spoons – Make sure all of your recipes turn out just perfect by adding just the right amount of ingredients with a wet measuring cup (used for liquids), dry measuring cups (used for pretty much everything except liquids), and measuring spoons.
Tongs – A great set of tongs is incredibly useful in the kitchen. Tongs can be used to transfer food off of hot baking sheets, flipping meats or vegetables while roasting or searing, or even for serving side dishes and salads.
Pie Making Tools – Pie is the dessert of choice at Thanksgiving! To see a full list of my favorite pie making tools head over to Must Have Pie Making Supplies.
