4 Ways Tech Can Improve Your Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and for many it can be stressful.  Here are a few technology tips to help take the stress out of Turkey Day.

  1. Smart Thermometer – Cooking the turkey can be tricky.  If you overcook it, it can come out like shoe leather.  Undercook it, and you run the risk of ruining everyone’s holiday weekend. You can take the guesswork out of it by using a wireless cooking thermometer like this one https://meater.com/.  Once the turkey reaches the appropriate temperature, it will send an alert straight to your phone. Easy.
  2. Air Fryer – Air Fryers are a cool piece of tech that has been around for about 10 years. This device was invented to save time and provide a healthier way to cook foods. To give you an idea of the time savings, the Big Boss Air Fryer can cook a 14-pound turkey in about 2.5 hours as opposed to 4.3 hours in a conventional oven!  https://www.amazon.com/Big-Boss-Oil-less-Limited-Copper/dp/B00BIFCHSO. Here is a link on how to cook a whole turkey in an air fryer for those doing it a first time, https://bestrecipebox.com/air-fryer-whole-turkey/
  3. Virtual Assistant – using a virtual assistant in the kitchen can be a lifesaver.  Set multiple timers, get recipes on the fly, instantly convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, and even send an announcement to everyone letting them know it is time to eat.
  4. Digital Measuring Cup – Sometimes you need a measuring cup, other times a cooking scale. You can get the best of both worlds in a digital measuring cup like this one, https://www.amazon.com/iMeshbean-Digital-Kitchen-Measuring-Scale-Green/dp/B083Q9DRTM.  It will save you time, reduce dishes, and help recipes come out consistently delicious.
