With Canadian Thanksgiving right around the corner, now is a good time to start thinking about holiday entertaining. I love spending time at home with family and friends over great food and wine. But I also don’t want to spend the entire time cooking. Here are five of our favorite kitchen gadgets for holiday entertaining that can be used year around also!
The versatility of cast-iron cookware is unbeatable. That is why it is found in many households. I’ve wanted one since I’ve started cooking. There’s nothing this kitchen workhorse can’t do. From roasting turkey, braised beef brisket, curry and stews, there’s one colorful enameled exterior to match your kitchen!
Cooking for large parties can be stressful. With the Anova sous vide device you can achieve professional results with little effort! The clever design with Bluetooth and WiFi enabled technology allows the cooker to attach to any pot with the accompanying clamp, set the time and temperature with the touch of a button, and cook foods in a sealable bag for maximum tenderness and moisture retention.
All-Clad Turkey Roaster – CAD 276.58
This turkey roaster set is perfect for getting yourself Thanksgiving Day ready! As a Canadian, I like to celebrate both turkey days in October and again with our friends down South in November. This stainless steel pan comes fitted with a nonstick, V-shaped roasting rack that elevates foods to allow for even cooking and browning. Now, all you got to do is perfect that bacon weave on the bird! Easy peasy!
SONOS Compact Wireless Speaker – CAD $249
Having a great playlist is essential to holiday entertaining. You’ve spent hours curating the perfect songs, why would you sacrifice it with poor equipment? SONOS wireless speakers uses WiFi to deliver deep, crystal clear sound. Control all your music and streaming services from a single app (on your smartphone, tablet or computer)!
A sharp knife cuts clean and straight. This eight inch Chef’s Knife satisfies most cooking needs. It has a good weight and has been ice-hardened, hand-sharpened and laser-controlled. This professional razor-sharp blade makes everyday tasks, like slicing bread and chopping veggies, even simpler.
Happy Holiday Entertaining! Tag me in your photos @instanomss, I’d love to see the masterpieces you’ve cooked/baked!
