These kitchen finds make Thanksgiving dinner a breeze. Anything that helps minimize our time in the kitchen to be able to spend more time with our family, makes Thanksgiving that much more enjoyable. So while you’re gathering what you need to make your meal, check out the tools you can use to help make Thanksgiving dinner one to remember…outside of the kitchen.

Check out the full list here and I’ve listed a few of my personal favorites below. And if you’re not planning on cooking, check out which restaurants will be open on Thanksgiving Day!

  • Silicone roast and turkey lifter

    This one is not mentioned in the article, but I love this. Takes the chore out of trying to lift a hot Turkey to a cutting board.

  • Electric knife and cutting board

    This makes carving so simple and efficient. Plus it’s dishwasher safe so it’s easy cleanup too.

  • Fat separator

    A must have for making sauces and gravy!

  • Salad spinner

    I use this on a daily basis. I love it! Rinse and spin dry your lettuce. Makes it so easy to make a fresh, healthy salad.

  • Take out containers

    So no one takes your Tupperware.
