If you’re planning on cooking a turkey for your next family holiay dinneryou’re going to need a turkey baster for that delicious turkey you’re going to make for your family.
That’s assuming you’re not vegetarian, that is.
So, we went out and got a whole bunch of turkey basters and put them to the test so that you don’t have to.
A turkey baster is basically a tube made of glass, plastic or metal with a squeezy bulb head that allows you to grab the juices from the bird and then coat it back in them.
It’s an essential if you want a nice moist turkey for your family feast.
Best Turkey Basters
Cuisipro 3-in-1 Baster
If you want to get the most value for your money then this excellent baster comes with a showerhead attachment to spray liquid over things and also a brush attachment so that you can coat things in liquids.
It’s very easy to use, completely dishwasher safe and will handle even the hottest liquids. It’s great.
You can find the Cuisipro 3-in-1 Baster online.
Norpro Plastic Nylon Baster
If you don’t need a baster that you need to last forever but just want something cheap and easy to use –then this little plastic baster is probably best.
It ought to last for a few years but it will eventually fall to pieces but until then it can take heat of up to 450 degrees and it will get the job done.

Norpro Deluxe Stainless Steel Baster
The joy of stainless steel basters is that they are practically indestructible.
If you buy this in 2020, you won’t need another one (unless you lose it) in your time on the planet.
Sure, it’s every so slightly more expensive than the others (but it is a turkey baster –nobody ever ended up in the poor house for buying a turkey baster) but that’s a small price to pay for immortality.

Norpro Dishwasher Safe Glass Baster
A lot of people in today’s world just don’t want to allow more plastic items into their home and certainly not into their kitchens.
This glass baster might be the perfect choice if you’re worried about plastics and as it holds liquids at up to 450 degrees it should be fine to work with.
Though we’d recommend you stick to hand washing it.

Tovolo Easy-to-Use Turkey Baster
This baster is designed to prevent it from dripping all over the place and it’s because of this that it’s our favorite baster in our tests.
We like the see-through version because it allows us to keep an eye on the liquid inside, but you can find a stainless version too.
It can handle temperatures of up to 600 degrees –so boiling liquids of all types are fine.
