Over the years, I have curated a collection of tried and true kitchen tools. As we prepare for the holidays, I thought it would be helpful to share what’s in my kitchen. Whether you are preparing to host a large gathering or an intimate group, there is not a more stressful feeling than getting halfway through a recipe and realizing you don’t have everything you need. I want you to go into this holiday season prepped and ready to cook, bake, and host! Below are some of my must-have Thanksgiving kitchen tools! If you’re looking for more recommendations, head to the Williams Sonoma Thanksgiving Headquarters page HERE or scroll to the bottom of this post to shop more must haves!
This Williams Sonoma set is the perfect set for turkey prep. It includes a digital thermometer, cotton cooking twine, 2 turkey forks, 3 brining bags, a glass bulb baster, fat separator, and a basting brush. This set has the tools to help you prep, baste, cook, and serve the perfect thanksgiving turkey! If you’re looking for an even more elevated set, they have another bundle option as well!
When it comes time to carve your Thanksgiving turkey, this cutting and carving board is essential! The unique grid of ridges in the center of the board holds meat in place for easy and seamless carving.
Roast meats, poultry, and vegetables in this stainless-steel All-Clad roasting pan. The design of this pan minimizes mess, and is easy for positioning in and out of the oven!
This is an absolute MUST have for Thanksgiving. Slicing your beautifully roasted turkey can be a rather daunting task, however an electric knife brings incredible ease to this task!
I absolutely love this Williams Sonoma Brining Kit. It includes a flavorful brining blend, turkey rub, and brining bag. The perfect kit for a fabulous turkey.
One of my daughters favorite Thanksgiving dishes is homemade mashed potatoes. This All-Clad potato masher is designed to break up your cooked potatoes with ease to create fluffy mashed potatoes!
If you’re tasked with roasting the turkey, make sure you have food-safe cooking twine!
This is my absolute FAVORITE pumpkin bread mix. If you’re looking to save the time it takes to cook from scratch, this mix is a fabulous alternative. Bake in this Botanical Pumpkin Loaf Pan to bring the beauty of fall into your thanksgiving dessert!
It’s absolutely critical to have a meat thermometer to ensure a perfectly cooked turkey with the recommended internal temperature. I love this digital, instant-read thermometer. I use this thermometer for my turkey, roasts, and steaks. This is also a wonderful gift idea for anyone that cooks.
I hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving!
