It’s Turkey Time! What better way to serve up the gravy than by using the Presence Gravy Boat! Simple, clean design matches any table setting, and the shape of the piece makes it easy to hold and to pour up to 10 ounces of the good stuff!
This set of humongous forks have nice long handles, and super sharp forks for lifting that super hot turkey out of the roasting pan. No more worrying about burning yourself, or wondering how you are going to transfer the turkey to the platter. The only weight limit on these is how much you can lift. I have lifted a 35+ pound bird with them, and they haven’t even offered to bend under the weight. And since they are stainless steel, no worries about them rusting!
These are amazing silicone trivet mats/pot holders. I use mine for everything in my kitchen. One of the main concerns during cooking for Thanksgiving is not having enough hot pads for all of your pots and pans. These take the heat and keep your counters and table surfaces safe! I also use mine as a spoon rest when my real spoon rest is full, as cleanup on them is so easy, my 4 year old can do it! Plus they come in 7 different colors, so there’s bound to be a color that matches your kitchen decor! I’ve replaced most of my hot pads with these, as I love them so much!
Baster with Injector and Cleaning Brush
This is a great stainless steel turkey baster with an injector and cleaning brush. My problem with most turkey basters is that they are made out of plastic (which isn’t great anyway) and they tend to split and crack under high heat. This baster can take the super hot juices from your turkey just pulled from the oven, without ever flinching. What’s nice is that the bulb is made from silicon too (bpa free!), and it comes with an injector needle in the event you want to infuse your turkey with flavor! The cleaning brush is nice, but you can easily take this baster apart and put it through your dishwasher to get it clean. Norpro is known for their kitchen tools, and this is no exception.
Digital Cooking Food Meat Thermometer
Never question again whether or not your turkey is done! This digital thermometer is super easy to read, has a 6.5″ food grade STEP-DOWN tip design stainless steel probe that you can leave in the entire time your turkey is cooking in the oven! Plus it has a timer function, reads in both Fahrenheit and Celsius temperatures, and is programmed with preset temperatures for different meats at various cooking levels. An even bigger plus to this? You can use it in your smoker or barbecue on your back porch too!!
Cute little Fall or Thanksgiving tea light holders to decorate your table or kitchen with! This adorable set of 6 turkey tea light candle holders includes 3 standing turkeys and 3 sitting turkeys. Use real tea lights, or battery-operated ones if you’ll have little ones within reach of them.
Want to make your table pop under all that magnificent food?!? Make your table stand out in this beautiful Harvest Wheat table cloth. With rich fall colors, and beautiful imprinted designs, this table cloth, (or table runner) will dress up your table and bring a perfect ambiance to your Thanksgiving dinner. Made out of 100% cotton, this table cloth is machine washable and wrinkle resistant. It also has matching napkins and rings that you can get to go with it. This table cloth has adorned our Thanksgiving dinner table for the last 4 years, and is just as beautiful now as it was when I bought it!
