Anyone Own a Stuffing Cage?

Do any of you own a stuffing cage?

Sounds strange, but there actually is such a thing. I bought one from Chefscatalog.com last year, but I haven't used it yet because I haven't roasted a turkey in quite a while.

You open the gadget, which automatically is devided into two halves when you do. You put the uncooked stuffing in both halves, close it and put it in the breast cavity when you are ready to roast the bird. It makes removing the suffing easier and less messy.

It's supposed to accommodate a 14-pounder.

But, nope, I don't have one. However, I saw some at the same warehouse store where I saw the Chop Wizard on Wednesday. The price tag was $3.

I gave up stuffing turkeys years ago. I still make dressings & enjoy trying new recipes, but have given up stuffing them inside the bird. Too much trouble. And since I like using the turkey carcass for stock, all those stuffing bits still attached are unpleasant.

But for those of you who enjoy it - I say GO FOR IT!!!

I can't figure out why you would want to do that. BUT if you DO want to do that, put your stuffing in some cheesecloth and put it in the turkey cavity.

Alton Brown used a cotton cooking bag. He put the stuffing into the bag and microwaved it to heat it up then put then bag full of hot stuffing into the turkey just before putting it into the oven.

BINGO! Yes, Cando, simple idea. Easy and everything can be removed easily. Plus, if you want to use the carcass for stock, no stuffing to flavor the broth.

I just thought that it's a nice thing to have.

It IS solid and constructed very well, and there's a handle on it that allows you to pull the cage out of the bird when it's done.

Put simply, it helps eliminate the hassles of digging out the stuffing with a spoon! I'm going to try it soon with a 14-pounder.
