    I’m looking forward to doing this technique. Tired of looking like the turkey and I are wrestling and .ending up with turkey salad.

    Thank you for the easy and manageable way to carve a turkey. I appreciated learning the turkey will remain warm and can be done behind the scenes. I love Pampered Chef ‘s tips and techniques!

    Looks really easy his way. But his turkey is much smaller than the bird I cook. Hopefully using his method I can get it to cut just as well!

    I always am the person to carve the turkey. I was familiar with this technique, but was happy to see the correct professional way to carve the turkey!

    This worked great for us yesterday! My husband loves using a regular knife instead of the electric knife! And the adult kids raved about how juicy the turkey meat was for the first time!! Thank you!!

    Awesome! I was taught don’t put garnish on the plate you’re not going to eat. My chef instructors dinged me all the time for that!
