You can have all of the cookbooks in the world, but without the right tools, the holiday meals you dream up in your head will never come to fruition. We’re not talking super fancy Viking range stoves or futuristic turbo ovens, though – you just need to make sure you have the basics. Yes, you can make a turkey without a meat thermometer, but having one on hand makes it so much easier to avoid overcooking your bird (or, worse, serving raw poultry at Thanksgiving). Making festive cookies for your friends is easier when you have cookie cutters, and parchment paper will save your cookware from sticky messes during the busiest season of the year.
Take a look at this list of essential kitchen tools you’ll need for all of your holiday baking and cooking, and make sure you have everything you need for the next few months of celebration.
