Kitchen Essentials for Thanksgiving Dinner

In my family, we take turns hosting Thanksgiving dinner. Luckily for me, I’d always lived in an apartment—clearly unsuitable for a family of seven—so I always easily managed to dodge the bullet. But now that I own a home, I know they’re going to come around asking when it is my turn to play holiday host. And whenever it is, I’d like to be prepared with kitchen utensils that will make Thanksgiving preparation a tad more organized and much less disastrous.

Aside from picking up dog poo, peeling garlic is one of my all-time biggest annoyances. And though I love the aroma of cooking garlic, the smell that cutting it leaves on your fingertips is not something I enjoy. So this Garlic Twist was the first item to come to mind as a kitchen essential, let alone a necessity for Thanksgiving preparation. Not only does it peel the skin off cloves but it minces garlic with a few twists of the handy kitchen utensil. Bonus: it’s easy to clean.

If you’re a control freak like me (though I will deny it from here on forward), a Creative Kitchen Ruler Knife might be just what the OCD in you needs. Of course, a kitchen knife is an essential for any dinner prep, but when it is also  an accurate measuring tool, I can get an inch or two closer to the perfection in the recipe’s picture. The included cover also keeps fingers in one piece, so I can safely move on to the next step in dinner prep.

Another absolute in the Thanksgiving kitchen: a Folding Cutting Board. Spilling my chopped efforts in between the counter and the stove releases a frustrated “nooooo!” So the folding capability of this board—simply squeeze the handle and in folds the board—means the chopped veggies will end up in the pot and not the black death under the oven.

I may not be able to avoid unexpected last-minute trips to the market, but at least I’ll know that, when I do have everything I need for the Thanksgiving dinner, my kitchen essentials will be right there waiting for me… and so will my family.
