Thanksgiving dinner, while delicious, can take a lot of time and energy to prepare. That’s why we did a little prep of our own and put together a few tips that can help simplify Thanksgiving dinner so you can spend less time cooking and cleaning, and more time enjoying the company of those you are most thankful for.

Prep for Success

For many people, cooking is a relaxing, peaceful pastime…so why should Thanksgiving dinner be any different? To keep things simple in your cook room, make sure all of your ingredients, spices, and measuring utensils are organized in a thoughtful and easy-to-use manner with things like mini mason jars, handy spice racks and cabinet drawer organizers. Then, place an array of mixing bowls and cutting boards around your kitchen and give each station its own recipe so your family members can join in on the fun! Because when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner prep, there’s no such thing as too many cooks.

Pro-Tip: Cut your cooking time in half this year with dual convection ovens that can roast much more than just your turkey!

Dress to De-Stress

While your turkey’s preoccupied in the oven, turn your attention to the table. Except, rather than spend an inordinate amount of time creating elaborate table settings, we suggest dressing up the dishes instead – after all, you eat with your eyes first! Put your pumpkin pie on its best behavior with a beautiful dish that matches the rest of your decor, and make your side dishes even more irresistible with decorative serving platters and bowls!

Pro-Tip: Set those dishes atop a stunning fall tablecloth and your meal will surely look as good as it tastes.

Clean House

After every last plate is licked clean, it’s time to undo the damage that has been done to your dishes (and kitchen). To make clean-up a cinch, emulate an efficient restaurant by setting up a dirty dish station! Place a plastic dish pan and garbage can near the sink so plates can be scraped clean of debris and left somewhat organized. Not only will this expedite the table-clearing process and reduce rinsing time, it’ll save yourself from the additional mess that dirty dish sprawl can create!

Pro-Tip: Revolutionize your post-meal ritual with a dishwasher that’ll leave every last plate sparkling clean. So long, elbow grease!

Savor For Later

And finally, one of the best parts of Thanksgiving dinner: the leftovers! To simplify your delicious food storage, stash your prized pie slices, side dishes, and turkey in glass container sets that’ll stack well in the fridge, and re-heat well in the microwave! And when the last of the leftovers are gone, keep those containers organized inside your cabinets with a few smart shelves and drawers.

Pro-Tip: Optimize your leftover storage with a modernized fridge that has adjustable shelving, customizable temperature controls, and enough room for more than a week’s worth of turkey sandwiches.
