Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, which means you’ve likely already begun thinking about all the delicious dishes that will soon be crowding your kitchen table. But the real question is: Have you thought about all the items you’ll need to bring those dishes to life? This year, thanks to shipping delays and supply chain issues, last-minute planning is one mistake you won’t want to make.

Thankfully, shopping for said essentials now doesn’t have to be some big stressful event. All you have to do is head over to QVC to find everything from small kitchen appliances and protective kitchen gear to beautiful table goods to set the stage for your spread. Ahead, uncover 15 Thanksgiving essentials from QVC, which are bound to make you that much more grateful come Thanksgiving prep day.

1. A spacious roasting pan

It comes with a rack and carving set.

We ranked this Viking 3-Ply Roasting Pan as our #1 pick for Turkey prep. The reason? It’s sturdy, has comfortable handles, and distributes heat evenly, so it will help you roast your best turkey yet. It’s even great post-use! While it’s recommended for hand-wash, it is dishwasher-safe in the event you want to give it a heavier-duty rinse. With all rave reviews come some downsides though, so we’d be remiss not to mention that this pan is a bit bulkier. But what can you expect from a pan fit for a 25-pound bird? (P.S. As if the pan itself weren’t enough to make you want to click “Add to Cart” perhaps the fact that it comes with a carving set will push you over the edge.)

2. An easy-to-use electric knife

You’ll never have to stress over cutting the turkey again.

Sometimes a manual knife simply won’t cut it for carving the turkey. Thankfully this electric knife (which we also named our favorite electric knife) exists. In addition to being able to expertly slice through the turkey, our reviewers found that this knife is surprisingly quiet and incredibly comfortable to maneuver, making it that much more appealing for Thanksgiving Day prep. v

3. A durable potato ricer

It makes creating mashed potatoes easier than ever.

While you might be accustomed to blending your potatoes with a handheld mixer or even smashing them with a fork or potato masher, our reviewers found that using a ricer is the key to creating fluffy, airy mashed taters. We chose a similar model as our best value pick for potato ricers, but this one is made with stainless steel and is dishwasher safe, so it’s a bit more durable and bound to last longer.

It comes with a lid for easy transport, too.

A cookie pan will always come in handy during the holidays. Whether you use it to make roasted potatoes, biscuits, cookies, or any number of dishes in between, this non-stick pan will be a godsend. So much so that we named it the best option on the market (sans lid). The reason being is that it’s versatile, distributes heat evenly, and is large enough to accommodate Thanksgiving-size portions. Best of all, this particular Nordic Ware half-sheet comes with a lid, so it’s great for bringing over to the in-laws or storing in your fridge (so long as you have a large fridge, that is).

5. A stainless steel breadmaker

It bakes loaves up to two pounds.

Why buy bread when you can make your own? If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that. If you were one of the few folks to not buy a bread maker during the pandemic, now’s the perfect time to do so. This Cuisinart one is a fan favorite for its 12 programmable options, 13-hour delay start timer, and ability to make loaves up to two pounds. Just think of all the things you’ll be able to make!

You can use it to make so many different Thanksgiving dishes!

If you have limited kitchen storage space but want to be able to whip up a bunch of different Thanksgiving dishes, you can’t go wrong with this versatile kitchen gadget. Complete with nine pieces, the Braun MultiQuick acts as a chopper, hand blender, food processor, and more. With a simple change of accessories (all of which are included), you can use it to mash potatoes, whip cream, julienne veggies, and knead dough, among other things. In other words, it’s a no-brainer of a buy for hopeful chefs—Thanksgiving or otherwise.

7. A speedy, 14-cup food processor

It even comes with a recipe book to inspire you with ideas of what to cook.

If you prefer the idea of a standalone food processor, however, we’re big fans of the Cuisinart 14-cup food processor. It's our top pick for being quiet, fitting under standard cabinets, and excelling at every task—whether that’s chopping onions, celery, and garlic for stuffing or using the included attachment to slice potatoes or shred cheese. And since it’s a bit larger, you won’t have to make as many batches.

8. A festive pumpkin loaf pan

Why make a boring loaf of bread when you can whip up a gorgeous harvest loaf instead? This 6-cup pan works wonderfully for creating pumpkin bread, pound cake, banana bread, and more. In addition to the non-stick cast aluminum pan, this purchase will deliver you with a loaf keeper, too, so you’ll have somewhere to keep your pretty baked good fresh.

It’s dishwasher- and oven-safe to boot!

Have you ever made a casserole for Thanksgiving only to wish you had a better way of keeping it warm and fresh than a flimsy piece of aluminum? This covered casserole dish might just be the answer to your prayers. The 7-quart cast iron dish is made with a porcelain exterior and is designed to keep food warm post-cook. And since it’s compatible with induction stovetops and is dishwasher-safe, it’s a versatile and easy-to-care-for piece that will most definitely go to good use in your kitchen for Thanksgiving and beyond.

Don’t break your wrists trying to whip together potatoes, doughs, and other Thanksgiving delights.

Love the texture of whipped potatoes? Or maybe you plan to make a batch of your famous chocolate chip cookies? Whatever the case may be, it’s never a bad idea to have a high-quality hand mixer on hand (no pun intended). This one, which is sold in four colors, is beloved for its 5-speed, turbo-powered design, which makes blending ingredients of all densities and kinds a piece of cake.

You can use it to make so many different things—not just muffins!

If cornbread is on the menu or you’re simply in the market for a pan that can be used to portion out appetizers (like meatballs), this non-stick 12-cup muffin pan is a must. In addition to taking the stress out of potential sticking, this pan comes with grippy silicone handles, so it’s easy to take out of the oven, too.

(Fun Fact: If you want to make the easiest and most delicious Thanksgiving rolls, take a page out of my mama’s book and fill this pan with not one but two frozen Rhodes dinner rolls per cup. The result is big, easy-to-split rolls that are perfect for cradling butter and other spreads.)

Simply slip your hands into the spacious mitts and remove whatever you need from the oven. When not in use, you can throw it over your shoulder for easy access.
