Creating the perfect roast turkey is not only done by having an accurate recipe, but also the possession of all necessary kitchenware for the process.
Some of the significant kitchenware for making a perfect roast turkey includes the roast-lifting fork, poultry lifter, roasting pan, and carving knifes.
Roast Lifting Fork
Cooking a roast dinner is made a lot easier with roast lifting fork. The forks have a solid handle and four prongs attached to it. The prongs are dug into the meat being roasted and the handle is used to lift the meat with ease and the desired speed, thus minimizing the chances of burning the meat or the person roasting it. The product is perfect for ensuring safety, minimizing risks of accidents, and ensuring the meat gets the desired taste, as it is rarely overheated due to delays in lifting.
A Poultry lifter is used in lifting a whole bird from hot roasting pan onto serving platter or carving block. After the completion of the roasting process, the birds are often too hot to be lifted from the roasting pan using bare hands. The poultry lifter ensures the risks of being burnt by the roasted poultry or dropping the poultry are adequately controlled.
This is a pan used for roasting foods in electric or conventional gas ovens. A perfect roasting pan should be large enough to enable the placement of a metal roasting rack within the bottom. It should also be heavy enough to allow perfect usage on the top of a stove burner, and should be manufactured using thick metals with strong handles that provide cooks with good grip and the ability to turn food within the pan.
These are knives whose blades are 8 to 15 inches long, and are used in carving poultry, large roasts or filleting large fish. The edges of the blades of these knives are either beveled or smoothed. The blades of the knives are large enough to ensure that a single sweep is sufficient for cutting across the poultry, fish, or meat.
A baster is all important for the preparation of the perfect roast turkey. Many of us may be used to using a desert spoon to drizzle basting juices over a roast during the cooking process. Although achievable, a proper baster ensures that you minimize the possibility of you accidentally touching the host roasting dish along with being able to collect and dispense more juices in one easy squeeze.
A spiked carving dish is best as your roast will not slip and slide during the carving process. The raised centre means that excess juices along with discarded fat and grease can be easy put to one side and, if you wish used later in the preparation of a lovely soup.
