8 Thanksgiving cooking tools that we can not do without



Cooking a Thanksgiving meal requires roasting boilers, knives, cutting boards, pie plates and lots of other common kitchen utensils.

But how about the little-known tools that can be a great help to make the Thanksgiving dinner perfect? I have reviewed CNET Editor's favorite unique (and some incredible) cooking tools that can help you make a great holiday destination.

A must for spackcocking

Kitchen saxage (aka kitchen sheep)

Oxo

I use my kitchen sax almost every day, but they are extra important on Thanksgiving when they help me to cook the perfect turkey.

Instead of roasting a turkey in the usual way (dressed, tressed and in the oven for hours), I butterfly, or spackcock my turkey. With my kitchen bag, I gently remove the spine and lay the turkey flat. The result is a quick grilling (about two hours), perfectly cooked breasts and the sharpest skin.

For impressive cookies

An offshoot patch

Oxo

My signature Thanksgiving contribution is a layered spiced pumpkin cake decorated with minichokladie chips, the whole was raised and surrounded with nice sweet cream cheese.

After years of frustration trying to frost the cake with a regular old table knife, I finally bought an offset spatula. Why did I wait so long ?! The cake looks more impressive, I wear less frost and it only costs me $ 10.

Make a better sauce

A fat separator

Oxo

So the turkey is ready and rests out of the oven and it's time to make sauce. The best thing I have found to distinguish the droplets from the fat is this separator from OXO.

Pour the contents of the frying pan through the silo cube, which captures most of the onions and celery you have put in pan for roasting. Wait for a couple of minutes to get the fat to the top, while the good stuff is beneath it.

Then pour the goodness into your saucepan and remove yourself, keep the fat in the separator. Bang zoom, and you're done!

Unconventional Thanksgiving

A Nutcracker

Winco

My favorite thanksgivings are those I use my favorite cooking tool and go to town on any new crab purchased from Fisherman's Wharf earlier that day. Take some lemons and fresh sourdough, and dinner is served.

Yes, the only kitchen utensil I can not live without is a nutcracker, which I usually crack my own crab, because I thank Netflix, Dungeness crab and a deep dark stout. Happy thanksgiving!

Time-saving stack

A garlic press

iHomeInnovations

Garlic press. Why? Garlic mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving, along with green beans sauteed with tomatoes and garlic and roasted artichoke-eggplant dip as an appetizer.

It's a cheap tool that saves a lot of time.

Old school workhorse

A vintage Pyrex bowl

Corning

My family's thanksgiving magazine is my grandmother's cornpudding. We can not eat dinner without it.

The handwritten recipe goes back for at least 60 years and she is always baked in a Pyrex mixing bowl with Old Orchard. I took over making a spice of Thanksgiving a few years ago, and still use a vintage Pyrex dish for it.

These colorful bowls have been tested, handled the oven as a master and screamed nostalgia to me. If you do not have someone inherited from your family, you can find them on eBay or keep track of your local stores to get them cheap.

Precision, Every Time

A Kitchen Scale

Salter

One of my favorite tools, especially during the holidays, is my Salter Electronic Kitchen Scale.

Every baker needs one to measure just. Need 10 oz dark chocolate for the little melting chocolate cakes and do not want to guess? Staple it on the scale. Do you have a child who likes to bake? They will be addicted to using it while inadvertently making math at the same time.

Note: I've had mine for over a decade, but the presented scale is similar to my basic model.
