It's the time of the year where making lists and prepping food for big get-togethers just seems like part of the new daily routine. But if you are planning a big Thanksgiving dinner, you will want to grab these 5 essential tools. We promise your life this holiday will be 10 times less stressful, and you'll actually reuse these tools every year after. (You might even want to buy a couple of these to give as gifts too!)
You’re in charge of the meat. Whether it is a turkey, a prime rib, a chicken, or a leg of lamb, you must have a roasting pan. Sure, you can use the disposable aluminum tray instead, but it’s much harder to swirl and save all the delicious juices from the meat. The foil pans are not quite sturdy enough to move in and out of the oven as you baste or dress the meat. There is a high potential risk for spillage which is very hazardous in the oven or on the floor. Investing in a good roasting pan will serve you well in your kitchen for more than just 1 day a year. You can enjoy perfect lasagna, roasted potatoes, enchiladas, and even cobbler!
The kitchen string will come in handy for a variety of tasks on Thanksgiving and beyond. From tying up your turkey or roast to tying down the sharpie used to putting names on cups, this is a gem you’ll wish you had in your kitchen a long time ago. Some other uses: making herb sachets, tying off cheesecloth, stuffing a beef tenderloin, or using it decoratively at your place setting.
Poultry should reach an internal temperature of at least 165º in order to be safe to eat. Beef can be cooked to lower temperatures depending on the cut. Use our steak cooking guide for our recommended temperatures. The only way to truly know you hit that temp: a digital meat thermometer. We recommend a Thermapen. The digital ones are more expensive, but you do not need to calibrate it. Other thermometers will need to be calibrated at a minimum every six months. If you do not, they can be off from 5-20 degrees.
Zest, grate and mince away with this hand-held grater. This is essential in any kitchen, but especially around Thanksgiving when we want all of our food to have the extra special zing. Zest fresh lemon peel on your herbaceous roast. Grate pecorino on your ground beef and rosemary apple bites. And, most importantly, mince garlic straight into mashed potatoes, and watch as it disappears into the starchy folds. Your taste buds will thank you.
While you’re using that microplane, make sure to wear these. A few swift swipes, and you might be spending Thanksgiving at the doctor instead of the dinner table. It’s also great to use while you’re carving your roast or bird. The meat will be hot, and you need to protect yourself from the hot steam.
That's it! Those 5 tools will save you in a pinch. While you're at it, you might want to pick up a few of our favorite gifts for anyone on your list -- the chef, the new cook, the entertainer, and more!

"Real talk...since my cancer was environmental and not hereditary I am super conscious of what goes into my body, especially protein. Post chemo left my body super low in iron so steak remains in my diet. I found Pre a few months ago and it’s the only meat I buy. Grass-fed, no added hormones and most importantly affordable. Eat better for your body people!"jaqueline
"Your steaks, especially the sirloin, ribeye, and filet mignon are absolutely delicious. Wasn’t sure how these cuts would taste grilled but they taste just as good if not better than cuts I’ve had a top notch steakhouses."Mario
"When our son was diagnosed with a rare medical disorder, it meant that we would have to change our diet as a family. Because his metabolism doesn’t function like a typical person’s, we have to be very careful about what we feed him. One of the changes we made was to use more grass-fed and finished beef in our cooking. We decided to give Pre a try, and we are so happy with the quality and taste of the meat. Buying from Pre gives us peace of mind and we feel confident knowing that we are using a product in the top of its class."Lindsay
"This beef is AMAZING! I'm from Wisconsin so a huge steak lover. This is some of the best beef, I've experienced and I've had beef around the world. It's a must try, and you'll understand what I mean."Tracy
"My husband and I loved having these filets once a week. I sear both sides and "in-between" in a very hot small Lodge cast iron skillet. I use a spatter guard. Then I place the skillet in a 400 degree oven for between 2min. 10-20 seconds. Perfect medium minus filets. My mouth is watering as I write this!!"Mary M.
"These steaks and other Pre products have been a staple in our home for over a year now and we continue to be fully satisfied with their consistently good quality and flavor. They are the perfect size, are delicious and easy to cook. Add Pre’s amazing customer service to it and you end up with an exceptional overall product!"K.G.
"Best steak I've had in a long time. I love being able to order grass fed beef that is way better than I can find in grocery stores. Really tastes great on the grill . I'm addicted to it now."Jeff S.
"First time trying the 10 Pack New York Strips. Oh My! had an unexpectedly warm day and whipped out the grill. Enough said. Delish !!!! Steaks are equally cut making cooking much easier for the desired temp."Lu H.
