Cooking Apps


One of the best ways to utilize technology in your Thanksgiving preparations is to use cooking apps. These provide recipes, alongside tips on how to create popular Thanksgiving dishes quickly.


You’ll also find many cooking apps provide shopping lists so you can see exactly what you need for each recipe. If you want to try something new this year, a cooking app can help.


Creating Shopping Lists and To-Do Lists


You’ll want to create shopping and to-do lists to save time. There are a lot of apps you can download to help with this. You’ll find apps specifically designed for meal prepping, shopping and to-do lists.


Not only are these apps convenient, but they are also really simple to use. You’ll be able to easily see what you still have left to do, alongside when it needs to be done by.


Using Timers


You can also use technology to help you stick to specific timings. Timers can be useful when you’re cooking the meal or trying to motivate yourself to complete Thanksgiving-related jobs. For example, you could set a timer for 15 minutes and use that time to focus on a specific Thanksgiving task.




If you prefer having everything you need to do in one place, you can use your computer to create spreadsheets. These can be used to clearly show what you still have to do and when you’ve completed it.


Video Calling Guests


Technology has made it easy to keep in touch with loved ones. When planning your Thanksgiving get-together, you can use video calling software to stay in touch. Quickly video call your parents to see when they will be arriving, or to ask guests about their dietary requirements.


You can also use video calling on Thanksgiving to communicate with those who couldn’t be there.


Handy Kitchen Gadgets


Technology has also introduced a number of cool kitchen gadgets. To speed up and make it easier to serve the turkey, you can invest in an electric carving knife. It may be quite a small tool, but it makes a huge difference to how quickly the turkey is served up.


You could also purchase a wireless thermometer. That way, you won’t have to keep popping into the kitchen to check on the food. It also reduces the chances you’ll end up with part of the turkey still raw in the middle.


Investing in up-to-date kitchen gadgets can make cooking and serving Thanksgiving dinner so much easier.


If you’re looking to take away some of the stress of Thanksgiving, technology can really help. The above are just some of the ways you can use technology to save time this Thanksgiving.
