Gadget Tree: Roasting a Turkey? You Need This!
By mamashighstrung on November 18, 2013
Watching me baste the turkey used to be great for a laugh.
I’d carefully squeeze the bulb, place it in the turkey drippings and gently, and oh so carefully, release the squeeze on top of the bird. Perfect. But then I’d try to baste the wings or underside and SPLAT! I’d hit the floor, or the oven door or the dog (yes, it really happened, but he loved it). Done with that.
Tovolo has come up with the Easy Reach Bulb Baster… an angled, dripless silicone baster that lets you easily maneuver around the turkey (or chicken or roast), directing juices exactly where you want them to go.
Because the baster maximizes suction, drips are minimized… no more rogue squirting! A pair of feet holds the tip off the counter and the shape of the bulb allows it to sit upright and not roll around. It’s temperature resistant to 450°F.
It comes with 3 dripless tips: a wide one for suctioning shallow pan juices, a basting brush tip and a regular basting tip. A cleaning brush is also included.
The kids are disappointed that I got this nifty new tool just in time for Thanksgiving and spoiled their fun. But you know who’s really upset?
