The Best Kitchen Gadgets for Hosting Thanksgiving 2021

© Amazon, Williams Sonoma

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. And whether you’re planning your first-ever holiday celebration at home or are gearing up for another year as the designated host of family dinners, one thing is for certain — coordinating and cooking a Thanksgiving spread is a really tricky affair. 

From roasting the turkey just right and perfecting your homemade mashed potato recipe, to prepping the pie crust and ensuring there’s plenty of space in the oven for that beloved casserole dish (which there never seems to be), the entire process can be pretty overwhelming — especially when you throw a household of friends, family and guests in the mix.

Fortunately, there are a plethora of nifty kitchen gadgets and tools that can help to simplify your food-prepping process for Thanksgiving Day and beyond — like an air fryer, meat thermometer, carving knife, cutting board, baking sheet, food processor and sauce pan, among so many other things.

Plus, with all of these essentials available at top brands like Amazon, Wayfair and Williams Sonoma, you’ll have everything you need and more to perfect this year’s Thanksgiving dinner — and all at budget-friendly prices.

To help you determine which tools and appliances are truly must-haves (and potentially your next favorite cooking tool), the ET Style team has handpicked the best gadgets for kitchen use on Thanksgiving Day and beyond. Some of our favorite finds include the KitchenAid Stand Mixer, Le Creuset’s Round Dutch Oven, a pro swivel peeler, informational pastry mat, a classic rolling pin and the Mauviel Copper Tri-Ply Roasting Pan, among others.

Ahead, find the best Thanksgiving kitchen gadgets for hosting the perfect dinner and serving up the family-favorite dish this year. Plus, shop the most viral kitchen essentials on TikTok, along with Paris Hilton’s adorable kitchen tools.
