With Thanksgiving just around the corner, you may be fretting about all the details leading up to the big day.
But preparing your turkey day feast doesn’t have to be a hassle.
Thankfully, cooking technology has come a long way.
Maybe it’s time to streamline your Thanksgiving preparations and upgrade your kitchen with these smart, high-tech cooking gadgets:
Thanks to this digital turkey fryer, preparing a fried turkey no longer means standing in the cold, fiddling with dangerously hot oil.
This handy rotisserie deep fryer is safe enough to use indoors and can handle a turkey up to 18 pounds!
The rotisserie function alternates the direction of your bird to promote even cooking and allows you to use 1/3 less oil than a traditional fryer.
This means your main course can be juicy and delicious without all the excess grease and fat.
For an even healthier meal, this digital rotisserie turkey fryer also doubles as a large capacity steamer! Simply fill the reservoir with water — instead of oil — to steam your favorite vegetables to holiday perfection.
Save yourself the embarrassment of serving an undercooked turkey this Thanksgiving with the help of this Bluetooth-enabled kitchen thermometer.
This dual probe indoor thermometer allows you to monitor up to 2 different dishes at once.
The digital thermometer easily mounts onto your oven or stove, and its backlit display gives you a clear and accurate temperature reading.
The iDevices app allows you to set pre-programmed cooking alarms and monitor your meals directly from your Apple or Android phone.
The app even supports a social sharing feature — so you can keep your entire family up to date on your poultry’s progress!
Turkey isn’t the only dish you’ll be making this Thanksgiving and a slow cooker is the perfect tool for preparing one-pot dishes — such as soups and sides.
This wifi-enabled crockpot slow cooker is a step above the traditional slow cooker by incorporating mobile technology.
When you download the slow cooker’s free WeMo app, you can check up on the progress of your dish, adjust the cooking time, and change the temperature settings remotely with your Apple or Android device.
The Smart Slow Cooker also has all of the traditional Crock Pot features that you’ve come to know and love, including:
- an LED display
- 3 temperature settings
- handles that stay cool to the touch
- a removable, dishwasher safe, stoneware dish
- a glass lid
When your holiday meals start to outgrow your stove’s capacity, call in the reinforcements with one of these induction cooktops.
Available as either a single or a double burner, you have the convenience of a speedy, energy-efficient induction cooktop without having to upgrade your entire stove!
The smart, smooth, glass burner allows for even cooking and will automatically cut off the heat if the pot or pan is removed for more than 30 seconds.
This induction cooktop also has 8 different heat settings, touch controls, and a 150-minute timer on an LED display.
With the right tools and a little determination, you’ll be producing mouthwatering dishes faster and easier than ever before.
So, is this the year you decide to upgrade your Thanksgiving by trading in your analog cookware for digital cookware?
I love my kitchen… and I like to cook. But my #1 requirement is that recipes have fewer than 7 ingredients (or arrive on my doorstep via a food delivery service). My absolute favorite thing about being in the kitchen is trying out new gadgets, cookware, and storage containers! I'm SUPER organized in the kitchen (and everywhere else) and I have every gadget I could possibly need neatly and compactly tucked away until I need it. I share only the simplest recipes (which is great for people who don't like to cook), along with time-saving food tips and cooking tricks (that will save you time and money). When I'm not cooking, cleaning, or organizing my kitchen… you can find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
