As you plan your holiday dinner menus and travel to the store to pick up all of those goodies, you may want to consider if your kitchen is ready for the big day as well. Here are five essentials that can save your dinner, impress your friends and spruce up your kitchen along the way.
A Bird Saving Thermometer
Don’t be intimated by a massive bird in your oven any longer! It is now easier than ever to know exactly when the turkey is ready for the table. iDevices has created a Bluetooth cooking thermometer that can alert on your mobile device when your food is fully cooked and ready for carving.
The iDevices Thermometer is about $65.
An Outfit Saving Lid
The Thanksgiving Day chef can always use a hand, but hanging out in the kitchen has some real fashion hazards. Gone forever are the food stains from bubbling sauces with the Spill Stopper pot cover. You can now simply cover the pot with the lid and prevent pasta, soups and other dishes from foaming or spilling out on you and your stove.
The Kuhn Rikon Spill Stopper is about $20.
A Cooler Kitchen Scales
Measuring ingredients is an essential part of every recipe and is now easier and cooler than ever. Not only can your smartphone provide great recipes, now it can even show precise measurements with the Drop kitchen scale. This app also allows you to show off your creations and share your recipes with other aspiring chefs.
The Drop scale costs about a $100.
A Smarter Crock-Pot
Don’t let the turkey steal the show again this year. A slow cooker can take the pressure off the chef by preparing a dish earlier in the day and letting the crock-pot do all the work. If you are looking for a high-tech Thanksgiving this year, the MeMo app allows you to stay connected with your dish while you on the coach watching the games. Using your Droid or Apple device, simply swipe to change cooking times, adjust temperature and receive notifications when your dinner is ready.
The Smart Crock-pot slow cooker sells for about $130.
Keeping it all Fresh
Now that all the cooking is done and the ingredients have done their job, keeping track of how long they will remain fresh is always a challenge. It is now as simple as checking your watch with the DaysAgo digital trackers. Connected easily with a suction cup, these helpull little devices will record how many days have passed since you first opened the item.
You can pick up 2 DaysAgo for about $16.
