Spare your floor the turkey grease this Thanksgiving. An essential kitchen tool, this turkey baster is extra clever because there is a flat side to the bulb to keep it from rolling off your counter.

8. Electric Turkey Fryer

Frying your turkey has become a viable and popular option now that there are fryers especially designed for this purpose. Turkeys cook quickly and juicy when you use this method. And with an electric versus a propane fryer, you can fry this turkey in the comfort of your home, rather than hanging out in the back of your chilly yard.

10. A Hostess Set

As you set your Thanksgiving table, you'll want to remember the serving pieces so you don't have to scramble at the last minute when everything is ready to serve at the proper temperature. Be sure to have a spoon or fork handy for each of your main and side dishes.
