11 Essential Kitchen Tools You Need to Make Your Thanksgiving a Success

We're gonna go a little bird-heavy in this list of tools because that poor turkey has got it coming. There's no way around it. You can fit a bird as heavy as 25 pounds in this 16-inch-by-12-inch Mauviel M’collection de Cuisine Roasting Pan, which comes with a free towel and roasting rack. The rack is nice because it lets the hot air circulate below the bird so it can get crispy and evenly cooked down there too. This pan is sturdy and has good handles. Three layers of aluminum are sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel creating a material that's 1½ millimeters thick for great heat transfer and thermal efficiency. It's suitable for all cooking surfaces — even induction — and oven safe, so you can use it for a quick sear on the stovetop, followed by an oven finish. Toss it in the dishwasher too.
