Kitchen warriors, it's your time to shine. Every year, those who are well suited for the task of hosting Thanksgiving dinner get the opportunity to show off their skills. With an overflow of staple side dishes like mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, yams, and more in tow, the aftermath of the big day usually leaves a kitchen filled with dishes that everyone — including the cook — dreads to tackle.
But, what if I told you that this year could be different? That all of the cooking didn't have to come paired with the same amount of cleaning? Sounds like a dream, right? Well, lucky for you, it absolutely is not.
This year, holiday cooks can impress their guests well past the meal that makes it to the table with social media's newest obsession: disposable pots with lids. Yep, you read that right. Disposable pots!

While the duo has been making it's rounds on TikTok, content creator Karla Tobie brought the fun to Instagram recently with a video of the invention that has garnered more than 4 million views since hitting the app earlier this week. "Yall getting these !? 😂 I'm not washing s--t for thanksgiving!! KNOW THAT 💅🏾" she captioned the video.
The "good to use on stove" disposable pots come in a singe pot purchase or in packs of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 15, 24 or 30 — you know, just in case you're throwing the feast of a lifetime. The pots, which also come in 3.5-, 4-, 5.5-, and 6.5-quart sizing, are described a way to keep meals warm while out camping or on vacation and can be ideal for those cooking in small kitchens. And while they are disposable, they can also be washed and reused with 5-7 uses being possible out of each pot.
Commenters on the video also mentioned a good idea for using the pots as well — especially if you're nervous about their durability. Instead of making them the main pot, use them as liners for your trusted cookware both on stove and in the oven.
So, if you're looking to wow your guests this holiday season beyond gifts, these pots are definitely the way to go. The best part? You can pick one up for as low as $20, which — if you're doing the math — breaks down to be anywhere between $2.85 and $4 per use. Sounds like a win-win if you ask me.
