Crazy Turkey Timer has Legs That Pop Up

 |  |  November 18, 2010

I am weird; I will not eat anything off the bone. I am not a fan of chicken on the bone, and the only time I eat turkey that comes from the bone is at Thanksgiving. There are lots of people out there that like to toss that dead chicken carcass on the table and start ripping parts off though. If you are one of these sorts, a cool new timer to be sure your bird is just right has surfaced.

The timer comes from a company called Kikkerland in SoHo and is made in China. The timer’s official name is the Perfect Roast Timer and apparently, it’s set to pop when the turkey is nice and juicy. The pop up timer is on a pointy metal probe that you cram into the turkey.

When the turkey reaches 165-degrees, the legs will pop from the flat position up to the vertical. It’s neat, even if a bit gross. I bet it looks like your cooking Tweetie alongside your turkey. MXYPLYZYK sells them for $12.95(USD) each, but they’re currently sold out. So you may have to wait until next Thanksgiving if you want one.
