Are you ready to prepare a feast for the Thanksgiving holiday? Thanksgiving ranks at the top of my list of favorite days of the year, so it's important to me that we get it right at my house. To prepare for this challenge, I like to turn to technology for some assistance to push the experience over the top. Let's look at some tech gadgets that will help make this holiday cooking, eating, and sharing season the best it can be.
Thanksgiving Feast Preparation
While deep frying a turkey is delicious, it's not worth burning the house down, which is a risk we all witness each year on the evening news. With this indoor, electric turkey fryer by Masterbuilt, you can have the best of both worlds. The extra-large basket accommodates up to 20 pounds of bird, so all of you're family and friends can be pleased with your decision.
Mash those potatoes, yams, or squash with maximum efficiency this holiday season with this electric masher by Breville. The masher offers adjustable speed control with 15 speed settings for precise blending and processing. It's also has dishwasher safe parts for easy clean-up.
Make sure you're cooking your meats to the right temperature (and not overcooking them which is often the case) by sticking them with this digital read thermometer. It comes with a handy meat temperature chart on it so you can quickly check the ideal temperature for your beef, lamb, pork, steak, chicken, turkey or fish.
Carve your Thanksgiving turkey bird like a champ with the help of this cordless knife by Cuisinart. This knife features a powerful motor and two dishwasher-safe stainless steel blades to make short work of any slicing task.
There are never enough mashed potatoes! Maybe its because no one wants to peel them. Now you can buy extra this year, and simply place a potato on the device and peel it in just ten seconds. The robotized arm adjusts to every thickness, shape and and texture from potatoes to tomatoes to rutabaga and even avocados – so it's useful long after Thanksgiving is over.
Many gravies and side dishes can be set up the night before, or morning of, in a slow cooker, making Thanksgiving dinner prep even easier and saving stove burners for everything else. The Crock-Pot Smart Slow Cooker with WeMo enables you to easily increase or decrease cooking time, turn the temperature up or down, switch the slow cooker to keep-warm mode or turn it completely off from the app on your smart device, so you can do it from your living room couch and not squeeze into the crowded kitchen.
Even while using a slow cooker, you may still run out of open cooking space, or just want something to keep certain dishes warm. This single burner patio stove will help add another cooking station to your house. Just make sure to keep a watchful eye on this added fire element.
Make your water fizzi with ease with the help of the SodaStream sparkling water maker. Turn plain water into sparkling water in an instant and adjust the fizziness level to your personal taste. You're so fancy. I've had one for years – so anyone will tell you, I'm definitely fancy.
If you're going to be serving lots of wine, save your arm and get this bottle opener. This cordless wine opener uncorks up to 80 bottles on one charge. And the best part – it allows you to vacuum seal and preserve the freshness and flavor of unfinished wine bottles. As a bonus it comes with a wine foil cutter… and it's sleek.
Fridge space is usually an issue around the holidays so make sure your wine stays cool in its own countertop cooling fridge. This compact fridge has a glass door and holds up to 12 bottles of vino.
This semi-automatic 3-in-1 espresso machine, cappuccino maker, and latte machine will help make tasty coffee drinks for an after dinner drink to pair nicely with some tasty pies and other desserts. Start practicing your latte art now!
Don't forget about dessert this Thanksgiving. This personal pie maker will allow you to create pies for everyone.
If you're having pie, you'll need the essential pie companion, whip cream, to make each bite complete. Rather than buy a can of whip cream, this device helps you create freshly whipped cream at home without preservatives or additives. Mmmmm, whip cream.
Be prepared for all the waste that will be coming to your kitchen as you prepare for the big turkey day feast. This trash bin and recycle bin combo takes the same amount of space as a regular kitchen trash can. It also offers an odor filter to keep your home spelling fresh. Add the Genican to make it a real genius.
Clean up the little messes that come along with hosting Thanksgiving with this lightweight, trigger controlled, cordless Dyson vacuum. It's the dust-buster on steroids, I've had one for years and love it. It's worth the price-tag.
No one wants to think about vacuuming or sweeping when there's so much else to do. That's where a robot vacuum will come in handy. Just press clean or schedule Roomba on the go with the iRobot Home App and it does the rest as it cleans your carpet and hardwood floors. As one of the first useful, consumer robots ever introduced, it's an oldie but still a goodie.
After a Thanksgiving feast you might watch football or a movie, but if you're looking to work off some of your extra calories, that's where this interactive Wilson football comes it. The sensor packed football pairs with an app on your phone to share some stats about your throwing performance. It also has a 2 minute drill mode where you can put yourself to the test.
Hopefully these Thanksgiving tech gadgets will help making your turkey day the best one yet. Let me be the first to wish you a happy season of gratitude. Happy Thanksgiving!
