The essential kitchen tools you need for holiday baking and cooking – SheKnows

You can have all the cookbooks in the world, but without the right tools, the holiday meals you imagine in your head will never come true. However, we’re not talking about super fancy Viking stoves or futuristic turbo ovens – 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 much easier to avoid overcooking your bird (or, worse, serving raw poultry on Thanksgiving). Making party cookies for your friends is easier when you have cookie cutters, and the parchment paper will protect your cookware from sticky messes during the busiest season of the year.
