Basting turkeys is a waste of time. Put the turkey baster to better use as a degreasing tool.
The Kitchn shows us that you use the turkey baster to suction up the liquid right below the fat line of a sauce or gravy. It's quicker and easier than skimming the fat off or waiting for everything to cool.
TruthDIY.in shares another similar usage: After browning meat in a pan, you can remove the excess grease at the bottom with a turkey baster.
So you don't have to get rid of that seldom used kitchen tool. Use it for sucking up grease and making perfectly shaped pancakes.
