Any holiday host worth their salt knows that gracious entertaining comes down to two things: preparation and performance. In other words, first you put in all those hours of invisible toiling, then you present a bountiful, beautiful spread and a relaxed, happy face—making it all look easy.

That’s where this cordless carving knife from the folks at Cooks Essentials comes in. It’s the antithesis of that ancient holiday knife with the wiggly handle (you know the one), or the bulky corded carver you curse each year then forget to replace.

This should be the easy part: Standing at the head of the Thanksgiving table, beneficently surveying your creations—including a gleaming mahogany turkey—while collecting compliments and answering inquiries. (“Yes, that IS grandma’s chestnut stuffing!”)—not worrying whether your tools are up to the job.

This Cooks Essentials Cordless Rechargeable Knife, on sale at QVC for just $42 (or three interest-free installments of 14 bucks) is the item to make that moment all it should be—and help you, or the Designated Slicer in your house, dole out effortless, Instagram-purty servings.

The Cooks Essentials’ Cordless Rechargeable Knife is far superior to the old-school electric knife. Sleek, ergonomic, and nimble (look Ma, no cord!), this beauty charges in an hour and a half, then is good to go through seconds and thirds. You get 50 active-slicing minutes—more than enough to get you through a long, leisurely meal.

Yes, this rechargeable knife will transform your holidays, but it’s also likely to become a steady favorite in your kitchen. It stores compactly (in its own tidy case), so you can keep it handy and bust it out to slice anything: baked ham, a rib roast, a rack of lamb, even a slab of smoked salmon (picture those paper-thin deli slices). Come summer, it’s great for a grilled feast.

It’s a breeze to use—simply press the power button and allow the blade to glide through meat. No need to apply pressure; the knife does the work for you. Behold the magic in this QVC video.

The Cooks Essentials’ Cordless Rechargeable Knife comes with a special designated bread blade that will open up a whole new world: Conquer a big round crusty bakery loaf, for next-level sandwiches. Thin-slice a baguette for crostini. You’ll get pro results that inspire creativity in the kitchen.

Once you incorporate this knife into your life, you can crank out gorgeous charcuterie plates (can’t you just see that lovely fan of cured meats?); make quick work of dense root vegetables (getting homemade soup on the stove in minutes flat); and whip up that gratin you’ve been craving (with wafer-thing potato slices). And we haven’t even talked about slicing tomatoes (I mean...). The Cooks Essential’s Cordless Rechargeable Knife covers so many bases.

Available in classic black, sophisticated gray, and vibrant red, the Cooks Essential Cordless Rechargeable Knife makes a great gift for anyone who loves to cook or grill. It will give a much-needed lift to this upcoming holiday, and help inspire you in the kitchen for years to come.
