10 Tips to Avoid Turkey Day Disasters

Knives

Bloody Bird


Carving, slicing, and dicing -- sounds dangerous! Practice knife safety this year so that you don't add your own flavor to the meal.

  • When you're carving the turkey or doing any slicing and dicing, use a sharp knife -- a dull blade may slip and cut you.
  • Cut with the blade facing away from you.
  • You can put a damp towel under the cutting board so it won't slide.
  • It's best to let a dropped knife fall, picking it up only after it comes to rest.
  • Only one person should be near the cutting surface at a time.
