How do you work a turkey baster? Using a turkey baster is easy. Simply squeeze the bulb and insert it into your cooking liquids, then release the bulb to draw them up. Once the bulb has fully re-inflated, the baster is full. Hover your baster at an angle over the area where you want to apply the liquid and gently squeeze.
How do you use a baster without spilling? Quickly tilt the turkey baster vertically right side up. A small amount of liquid will drip and it will begin to trickle. Gently squeeze the bulb to release the liquid in a controlled manner. Tilt the tip up again to prevent drips as you continue drawing liquid or carrying your baster to the sink.
What is a turkey baster used for in cooking? A turkey baster is an ideal tool to suck up and remove that liquid. It’s faster and easier than using a ladle, it decreases the likelihood of drips and spills, and it makes meals leaner and healthier too!
How do you put the bulb back on a baster? To get the bulb more malleable so you can slip it back into place on the baster tube, you need to warm it up. The bulb might be pliable enough right out of the dishwasher. If it isn’t, then fill a bowl with hot water and then let the bulb sit in the water for a few minutes.
