While your turkey may take pride of place on the dinner table at Christmas, it’s often the side dishes that are the real star of the show; think sticky parsnips and carrots drizzled with honey or crispy roast potatoes cooked in flavourful goose fat. Or perhaps you’re going for a veggie centrepiece instead of a meat one this year? Whatever your plans, it’s no secret vegetable-based recipes can take ages to prep – but not with the OXO Y Peeler. Named after its shape, it has a sharp, stainless-steel blade that glides through even the toughest fruit and vegetable skins. Better still, the soft, comfortable handle cushions your hand as you peel and is non-slip even when your hands are wet. Available from John Lewis, Lakeland and Amazon (£9).
Angled Measuring Jug
What’s a festive feast without those all-important sauces? Be it a rich gravy or an indulgent bread sauce, you can measure liquids easily and accurately with the OXO Angled Measuring Jug. This iconic jug has a patented angled surface that allows you to see measurement markings from above as you’re pouring – so there’s no need to fill, check and adjust – and it’s available in 250ml, 500ml and 1l sizes. Available from John Lewis, Lakeland and Amazon (£11).
Chef’s Precision Digital Instant Red Thermometer
You probably put a lot of love and thought into your meat of choice at Christmas, so to ensure you don’t under or overcook it, it’s worth investing in a thermometer. With the OXO Digital Instant Red Thermometer, you can take all the guesswork away and be safe in the knowledge your meat is perfectly cooked. Fast and precise with an ultra-thin tip, it gives you an accurate internal cooking temperature and comes with recommended food temperatures on the storage sleeve. The large display is also easy to read, and the thermometer head pivots 90°, allowing you to read the display from numerous angles. Available from Amazon, battery included (£22.50).
Good Gravy Fat Separator
Pull off your most luscious gravy yet with this genius contraption, which separates and strains at the squeeze of a handle. The built-in strainer catches any herbs or vegetables you’ve added to your creation for flavour, while the silicone shut-off valve seals to prevent any leaks. It also comes with convenient measurement markings and it’s dishwasher safe, so you can spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying yourself. Happy days! Available from John Lewis, Lakeland and Amazon (£27.50)
Give your kitchen essentials a stylish update with the OXO Steel collection. From slotted spoons for sprout-draining to turners for your spuds, this elegant range is crafted from durable stainless steel to help you take your food from the worktop to the table with ease. Plus, the sleek, brushed steel handles feature soft grip accents for maximum comfort, and everything in the range is dishwasher safe. Available from John Lewis (£17).
Angled Baster with Cleaning Brush
Basting your turkey at regular intervals is key to keeping it moist and flavoursome – and with the OXO Angled Baster you can make the process safer and simpler. Its angled tip easily gathers basting juices from tins and pans, so you don’t need to put your hands too close to the heat surface. The round silicone bulb is also comfortable to squeeze and the measurement markers are easy to read. And when it comes to cleaning up, the handy brush makes the job a cinch, while the integrated stand keeps it from rolling around the worktop. OXO really has thought of everything! Available from John Lewis and Amazon (£15).
