This list of Holiday Kitchen Essentials will help you make sure that you have the special kitchen equipment that you may need this holiday season.
Last week I shared with you my list of Holiday Pantry Essentials. Going into the holidays with a stocked pantry is very important but it’s also important to know that you have all the kitchen equipment you need to get through the holidays.
These are items that you may not use year-round so you haven’t had occasion to buy them or you don’t see them enough to remember the condition they were in the previous year. Or you could be like me and forget that you threw your old roasting pan out the previous year and have to call your mom before she leaves South Florida and ask her to bring her
Yep, I totally did that! I guess you could say lesson learned and why I’ve tried to be more prepared every year since then! So here is my list of Holiday Kitchen Essentials.
Yeah, I thought I would start with the obvious one. I don’t use a roasting pan that often outside of the holidays. In fact, my current one sits in my guest room closet. However, if you want to roast a turkey or a nice sized prime rib, it’s a good idea to go ahead and buy one.
Turkeys are pretty big birds and are often too big for your normal platter. I actually have only ever used my big platter for a turkey. I have smaller platters for other types of roasts that I cook. It’s a good idea to make sure you have a platter big enough for that bird.
It’s always a good idea to have a pie plate or two especially this time of year. I still use the same Pyrex pie plates that I received as a wedding gift over fifteen years ago. They’re a lot sturdier than those foil pans, easy to clean up, and better for your budget in the long run.
I actually received my cookie press from my mom at my bridal shower. This is a holiday essential for me. Every year I use it to make my family’s Spritz cookie recipe. Next month I’ll be sharing that recipe with you. There is a method you can use that doesn’t require a cookie press but I find the little pressed cookie shapes so much fun!
When Derek and I were first married I wanted to make some Christmas cookies and I grabbed a set of plastic cookie cutters while I was at Publix grocery shopping. I never really cared for them and a
Piping Tips and Bags
Although I’m not a big cake maker, I do like to make use of my set of piping tips and bags during the holidays. I like to pipe frosting on my freshly baked Christmas cookies that I’ve cut from my family’s butter cookie recipe.
I just recently started using these instead of parchment when baking cookies. I absolutely love them. They make clean up a breeze plus they’re better for my budget and the environment.
This is actually one of my most recent additions to my kitchen collection. I can’t believe I went so long without one! I used to just store my holiday punch in pitchers but I love having a punch bowl now. By the way, keep your eyes peeled for a holiday punch recipe next month!
Last month I shared with you my list of Everyday Kitchen Essentials. I’m going to list a few of them below that you’ll most likely need for holiday cooking and baking so you may want to check the condition of them before the holidays arrive.
Whisks and Spatulas
Hand or Stand Mixer
Measuring Cups and Spoons
I hope that you find this list of Holiday Kitchen Essentials helpful as the holiday season begins!
