It’s not too early to start thinking about Thanksgiving because, well, it’s coming up in a matter of weeks. If you’re like us, Thanksgiving day can be a chaotic time in the kitchen and all you want is for everything to be perfect and that’s not asking too much. We’ve put together a list of a few gadgets that can and will help everything run a little more ~smooth~. Let’s get started!
Digital Meat Thermometer
The last thing any host wants is to give all of their guests food poisoning and yes, this is a deep-seated fear of ours, so to avoid that we recommend having a digital meat thermometer on hand so you can ensure that whether you’re serving ham, turkey, or even a turducken is ready for guests to dig into it.

To carve your turkey you simply need a carving board. The key to a scrumptious turkey is to let is rest before you carve it and not only does a carving board give you a place to set it, but it collects all of the juices as it rests. Buy one here!
On a typical Thanksgiving, we’ve set our phone time, our phone alarm, the oven alarm, and Alexa probably has a timer going too, but the problem is we quickly forget which time goes to what. That will never again be an issue with this whiteboard timer that allows you to set multiple timers and, wait for it, label them, then erase them and set and label more. Buy one here!
If you like creamy mashed potatoes with ZERO lumps, you have to get your hands on a potato ricer. Boil your potatoes whole with the peels on them for maximum flavor, then once they’re soft, let them cool, take the peels off (they will quite literally peel off) then put the potatoes in your ricer, squeeze the lever, and you’ve got perfectly creamy mashed potatoes every time.

Buffet Food Warmer
If you fancy buffet style at your Thanksgiving gathering, this buffet food warmer will make sure nothing goes cold while you wait on a dish or if you’re last in line. Buy one here!
Hanging Kitchen Trash Can
It’s important to keep your counter clean while you prepare and cook food, and you can do this easily by having a hanging trash can at your disposal. (See what we did there?) Buy one here!
