9 Smart Kitchen Products That'll Do Half the Work for You This Holiday Season

Look, I don’t exactly mind running point in the kitchen during the holiday season. In fact, if it gives me an excuse to make an extra batch of gingersnap cookies that nobody exactly asked for, or the creative license to spatchcock our bird, I’m all for it. (What are you still doing in the kitchen, dad? I told you, I’ve got this.)

With that said, there are definitely a few jobs I wouldn’t mind delegating. I don’t mean garlic mincing—I’m of the odd-duck camp who loves when her hands smell like garlic. (What?! It’s cozy.) But all of the memory work around which batch of mashed potatoes are leftover from which meal? Or whether that basil was purchased last week, or last month? I’m happy to hand off the baton there.
