Tackle Thanksgiving Dinner with Help from These Staple Kitchen Appliances

Thanksgiving is about family, gratitude, togetherness, gathering and of course, food. It’s about the turkey.  And the fixings.  And don’t forget desserts! With Thanksgiving just days away and the holidays fast approaching, now is a great time to prepare your kitchen for a season full of cooking and baking needs. 

Cooking Thanksgiving dinner is a formidable task but hosting the biggest holiday meal of the year can be made a lot less stressful when you have the right tools.  Using make-ahead recipes and employing your small kitchen appliances can provide time-saving strategies that will help you pull together a complete Thanksgiving meal and give you some extra time to enjoy the day.

Below are a few staple small kitchen appliances that will ease and assist in your Thanksgiving meal prep:


Cooking with the Slow Cooker

Slow Cookers are perfect for keeping plenty of gravy, mashed potatoes, stewed vegetables or any side dish warm. If you’re cooking for crowds, the built-in presets and monitoring features on the slow cooker take the guesswork and constant monitoring out of the cooking process, giving you more time to interact with guests. Side dishes, like sausage corn-bread stuffing to pecan and brown sugar sweet potatoes are perfect to prep and cook in a slow cooker.

Your Handy Microwave Oven

Take advantage of this appliance to reheat food before serving when all the burners on the stovetop are occupied. You can also jump-start cooking by starting a dish in the microwave, then finishing it in the oven or on the stovetop.

Easy Prep with a Food Processor

If you plan on mincing mass quantities of onions, pureeing butternut squash, or quickly chopping pecans and walnuts for a sweet-potato casserole or pie, a food processor will do right by you. You can even make a serviceable pie crust from scratch in under 15 minutes with this gadget, big enough to tackle a Thanksgiving feast’s worth of ingredients.

Java Love

Thanksgiving dinner is a mammoth of a meal, so much so that it usually requires a period of rest and relaxation as soon as the final crumbs are cleaned off the plates. When you’ve cleared away the platters and silverware, get out the coffee maker and brew up a batch of delicious coffee.
