The best Thanksgiving cooking tools you can buy

Why you’ll love it: The Cuisinart Electric Knife glides through turkey and other roasted meats, making carving a cinch.

Yes, it’s true that Norman Rockwell Thanksgivings don’t generally feature an electric knife, and you yourself might be thinking a carving knife and fork is the only way to go. But I’m here to tell you — an electric knife makes carving a turkey so much easier, neater, and faster, you’ll wonder why you waited so long to make the switch.

I myself inherited an early-1980s-era electric knife from my mother when I took over the family Thanksgiving duties 15 years ago, and it’s still running strong. The beauty of an electric knife is that it glides through skin and meat without tugging or catching, so you are much less likely to end up with torn, jagged edges. Instead, you’ll quickly carve beautiful, even slices of delectable turkey, roast beef, bread, or whatever else you might be cutting.


While my sturdy model is no longer on the market, the Cuisinart Electric Knife has taken its place, and is just as effective. Double stainless steel serrated blades stay super sharp — no need to ever sharpen them.

The handle is comfortable and makes wielding the knife easy, and there’s just one handy button for powering the knife on and off. When you’re done carving, just hit the eject button and wash the blades in the dishwasher.

Pros: Blades are very sharp and cut neatly through all types of meat, bread, or other foods, dishwasher safe, powerful motor

Cons: A few customers complained that their electric knives failed after a few uses
