The turkey is done, now all that’s left to do is carve it. It can be an intimidating job, but it’s made easier by the proper tools.
First of all, you need a carving board that is large enough to hold your turkey. You want a juice groove so that any flowing juices will be captured and not make a mess of your countertop, and you want it to have some texture so that your turkey won’t slide around while you’re trying to cut it. Epicurean’s reversible Oval Carver fits the bill!
A grid of deep grooves cut on the carving surface grabs your turkey and keeps it from moving, while a nice big juice groove goes around the circumference of the board to ensure you make a clean job of it. If you’re just going to be chopping some vegetables, flip the board over and you have a nice smooth groove-less cutting surface. Cutout handles make it easy to move. ($79.99)
Another great tool for the timid turkey-carver is an electric knife. With Cuisinart’s Electric Knife, you’ll be able to carve like a pro. A trigger control allows you to cut everything from thin slices of ham to thick slices of turkey breast. This knife comes with two blades- one for meat, and one for slicing bread. A wooden stand lets you keep it out on the counter where it’s handy. ($49.99)

•Has been refurbished and fully tested by Jura.
•Comes complete with all equipment like new machines.
•Features a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty that guarantees that the factory will cover any warranty repair and shipping costs associated with that repair for the first year.
What does “Refurbished” mean?
All Jura Certified Refurbished espresso machines are units that have been serviced directly at the Jura service facility. Each unit has a factory-serviced sticker on the bottom of it indicating that it was returned to Jura for any one of a variety of reasons ranging from buyer’s remorse to an actual defect. In addition to any repairs, if even necessary, every factory reconditioned Jura machine receives a complete rebuild of the brew unit as well as having numerous seals and o-rings replaced throughout the hydraulic
circuit, regardless of need.
All machines that leave the service facility are considered by Jura to perform “like new”, though some very minor blemishes may be present, such as superficial scuffs or scratches which do not affect the overall appearance of the machine.
This is a limited offer and an AMAZING DEAL!
