Roasting a turkey is pretty simple, except for the part where you have to transfer it from the roasting pan to the carving board. Before I discovered the Oxo turkey lifter, I used wads of paper towels to protect my hands while moving the heavy, unwieldy bird, but even with someone helping me, one of us always got burned by the roasting rack. Fortunately, the turkey lifter has-put an end to the struggle. It’s a clever U-shaped metal contraption with a forked tip on one end and a comfortable rubber bulb handle on the other. You insert the tip into the turkey cavity and lift. The shape gives the lifter strength and leverage, so it’s not only easy to move the turkey with just one hand, but it’s also easy to-tilt it to drain juices from the cavity into the roasting pan for gravy. The Oxo turkey lifter is widely avaliable in cookware stores.  Or try A Cook’s Wares www.cookswares.com, where the turkey lifter is $11.
