When you're making savory gravies and sauces, you'll love the ease and convenience of this ingenious fat separator. The key to its efficiency is a design that filters roasting-pan drippings, separating out the fat and then allowing you to dispense healthy, flavorful meat juices with a single press of a lever.
Crafted of premium 18/10 stainless steel, the carving knife and fork feature a minimalist silhouette that complements both contemporary and traditional table settings. A thoughtful holiday gift, the set arrives beautifully packaged in an acacia storage chest.
A paring knife is the second most important knife to have in the kitchen. This paring knife is designed for all close-hand tasks. The clip point allows the blade to easily carve and peel fruits and vegetables.
"The intentionally simple designs of our signature Crate & Barrel cutting boards keep all the attention on the beauty of wood. Crafted of maple, this face-grain board showcases the wood's creamy tones and subtle grain. A recessed meat rest on one side accommodates poultry, roasts and larger vegetables for showstopping carving and serving."
Riveted stainless steel handles make placing the roasters into the oven, and lifting them out, safe and hassle free. Solid stainless steel racks allow heat to circulate and let meat or poultry drain as it cooks.
"For a succulent turkey with moist meat and crispy skin, use our organic turkey rub and Tovolo's bulb baster. The rub combines garlic, onions and thyme with fragrant lemon peel and rosemary for bright, savory flavor. Made of silicone and Tritan® plastic, the baster is designed to withstand high temperatures."
