This one is heavy duty steel and comes with a U-rack that holds your bird upright, two turkey lifters, a baster and a meat thermometer. Plus, you get a fancy electric knife to dispatch your perfectly roasted bird in minutes. It’s great for turkey, but equally suitable for Easter hams and holiday roasts.
