  • Every kitchen tool and gadget you'll need for the perfect Thanksgiving dinner.

It's almost game time. And by game time, we mean the Super Bowl of cooking: Thanksgiving.

Any turkey pro knows that you'll need the right set of cookware to prepare all of your main dishes, fixings and assortments of desserts. This means deep roasting pans that were made to handle your massive turkey centerpiece, a set of bakeware that can perfectly cook and present your sides, grease separators for simplified gravy making, and of course, pie dishes that make sure your signature pumpkin pie ends the dinner on a high note.

Once you have the right tools in your kitchen arsenal, you'll be surprised just how streamlined and efficient your Thanksgiving cooking process will be.

We've rounded up the staple cookware pieces you'll need for your spread — think a trusty cookbook, stoneware pie dish and carving set. We've also thrown in bonus items, like a gravy grease separator and compostable (but still chic) dinnerware to make your Thanksgiving prep and clean up that much easier.

Best of all? Every item has at least 4.5 stars on their respective retailers. With these tried and tested products, you'll be fully equipped to create a meal that will impress all of your dinner guests.

You've got this.
