Tools of the Turkey Trade


Here at SHAPE we test a lot of kitchen gadgets but more times than not you can make do with something you already have on hand. But if there’s one meal you don’t want to flub, it’s Thanksgiving dinner and of course, turkey is the star.  That’s why we are loving the Zyliss Squeezy baster ($8; Its squeeze-and-release valve lets you redistribute roasting-pan juices with more control so you don’t waste a drop and you can reach all the nooks and crannies of your bird.

Need a little more guidance this Thanksgiving? Give the Butterball hotline a call at 800-BUTTERBALL or shoot them an e-mail at You can also tweet your questions, or see what other people are tweeting about at @Butterball this holiday season. The hotline is open during the months of November and December. And don’t be embarrassed, 28,442 people called or e-mailed the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line last Thanksgiving!

Have any turkey tips? Feel free to share them here or tweet them to @Shape_Magazine.

As an editor at SHAPE I have the chance to learn about the healthiest ways to cook, eat, and live from all sorts of experts but I’m also a single girl living in NYC with a busy schedule, active social life, and chocolate cravings. I’m here to share what works for me—and where I need a little help from you.
