Is your kitchen conducive to cooking a holiday meal? November through the New Year is typically when a storm of guests visit and dinners are enjoyed. The sheer volume of everything is what catches most kitchens off guard. Will the turkey fit in your oven? If you run two appliances at once, will your fuse short-circuit?
Cooking requires a surprising amount of prep space, especially if you’re cooking multiple courses at a time. Make sure you have enough kitchen resources to get your through the holidays. Here are a few Thanksgiving kitchen hacks to help get you there…
Get an over the sink cutting board
Save counter space by overlapping your cutting board and your sink!
Why sacrifice your cabinets when you can hang your pots from the ceiling like a chef?
Another Thanksgiving kitchen hack is adding temporary stainless steel shelf as extra storage space for the holiday.
Install a kitchen island
Install extra, easy-access outlets
A free flowing sink during food preparation is essential. A clogged sink can seriously inhibit your ability to defrost a turkey, clean dishes, or to keep a clean kitchen.
Make sure your garbage disposal is prepared for leftovers and heavy use.
Increase the size of your sink
A lot of company means a lot of dishes. Having a larger sink will help you get through cleanup quicker!
