Food Storage Tips to Be Thankful For
Thanksgiving is one of the most family oriented-holidays of the year and with that comes a lot of hard work and preparation. Did you know that last year, Americans consumed an estimated 46 million turkeys on Thanksgiving Day? Considering that the average turkey weighs about 16 – 17 pounds, this means that we, as a nation, ate nearly 800 million pounds of turkey! This statistic may be shocking, but we have come up with a system of five simple steps to make this holiday as stress free as possible.
Depending on the size of your guest list, the preparation time for a Thanksgiving feast could be significantly longer than the time it takes for everyone to eat. This requires an increased emphasis on organization in the kitchen. Our 8 Piece Covered Bowl Set
comes with four bowls ranging from 1.5 Quarts to 5.5 Quarts allowing you to prep your appetizers, entrée and desserts on schedule. So, whether you are putting the finishing touches on the stuffing or mixing up the ingredients for your carrot cake, your kitchen will be running at ultimate efficiency.
No Turkey Day meal is complete without a host of delectable treats to taste after the main course. The best way to make sure that your cakes are picture perfect when they hit the table is to use the Cake Server
. This product is ideal for family gatherings as it is designed to store and serve cakes and desserts up to 12" in diameter. The Cake Server features a comfortable handle built directly into the lid to make transporting your dessert hassle-free and durable latches ensure that the lid stays securely connected to the base at all times.
When the table is set and all of the hard work in the kitchen is complete, it is time to eat! The best way to make sure that your table setting stays spotless is with Sterilite's convenient products for your beverages and desserts. There won't be a drop spilled if you choose to serve your drinks out of the Ultra•Seal™ 2.2 Quart Pitcher
. This product features a gasket and four latches built directly into the lid creating an airtight and watertight seal. Also, the slim design of this pitcher means that there is more room on the table for all of your Thanksgiving Day staples.
