Why You Need a Baster

A baster is another kitchen essential that everyone needs but no many have. Basting creates that golden-brown, picture-perfect turkey that’s the showcase of Thanksgiving dinner. Pampered Chef’s durable baster has good suction, handy measurement markings, and a flat area on the bulb so it won’t roll off the counter when you set it down.

Yes, it’s a holiday necessity, but a baster can work for you all year long. In addition to pork roast and chicken, you can use it to baste pan-seared scallops, pork chops, and fish. It’s also a great way to remove a layer of fat from simmering stock, and it makes quick work of draining excess fat from a skillet of ground meat. You’re also going to use it when making cute pancake shapes, filling a donut pan and cupcake pan, mess free! You can also use it to water delicate house plants.

After your delicious meal is done, just pop the baster in the dishwasher for easy cleaning. We’ve included a cleaning brush when you want a more thorough cleaning.

Now that you know why you need it and that you’ll definitely use it beyond the holiday season, hop over to my website and grab yours: Shop Basters here.
