The biggest day of the year for many is coming VERY soon and what a better way to enjoy the day than forking out hundresds of pounds on top tech because “The brand is better”?
Well that is not always the case, sometimes just spending a couple of pound will make you feel warm inside and work exactly the same way as spending hundreds on over priced items.
This guide is perfect if you have a £60 turkey or just a £10 crown this year (Crown’s are actually a really great way of making Christmas easier, but each to their own).
Each turkey for every different family have their own twist, some add cinimon, others cook in brine.
We will be checking off everything from knives through to Meecroooowaaavee’s!
Lets get started:
Cooking the food comes easy to many and some love cooking a Christmas dinner.

Let’s check out the pot’s, pans and pressure cookers to cook the lovelly veg
There are two type of people in the world, those who LOVE sprouts and those who loath them (We are partial to some sprouts). Either way these will help you cook all your 2020 Christmas veg this year.
Let’s dive in:
If you are only a small family then this Argos Home 3 Piece Non Stick Carbon Steel Pan Set wil be able to fulfill your needs. Coming in at just £8 for 3 pans that’s not a bad bargain especially as there are 3 pans to use.
Have a bigger family? Then this Vango 7 Piece Non Stick Cooking Pan Set is £15 at the moment and will help with other cooking challenges throughout the big festive day.
We also wanted to mention that if you have a junior chef in the house then this Chad Valley Role Play Pots and Pans Set is on offer at £10 OR is part of the 2 for £15 offer currently running at Argos.
Right now at Argos, the Tower Compact 4 Litre Pressure Cooker is cheaper than the Tower 3 Litre Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker by £4. So if you have the room then maybe worth getting the 4l cooker for £30.
