10 Wacky and Wild Thanksgiving Inventions You Won’t Believe!

Who doesn’t love an excuse to get together with friends and family and eat until you burst?

That’s why Thanksgiving has to be one of the best holidays around! Not to mention the excellent shopping the day after!

In honor of this wonderful holiday full of turkey, football, and family we thought we’d share with you a few wacky Thanksgiving inventions. These creations are things you never imagined or thought could exist. Some are great, and some are…Well, we’ll let you decide.

Creamed Corn Extractor

Forget about eating your corn on the cob. With the creamed corn extractor all the work is done for you.

The device is basically a drill that has a special drill bit for holding an ear of corn by its end. The corn is then rotated and pushed into a tubular cutting cylinder to sheer off the kernels.

Definitely not a necessary Thanksgiving invention, but it could be fun! Patent. 

Pumpkin Powder 

This time of year pumpkin everything is awesome, so why not pumpkin powder?

Well, it’s not what you think. Created in 1897, this Thanksgiving invention is actually a powder that when combined with water, transforms into a pumpkin pie-like consistency.

That’s right!

We’re not talking pumpkin flavoring but dried pumpkin powder.

Automatic Mashed Potatoes

If you’ve ever made mashed potatoes, you know the most labor-intensive part is the mashing. And if the potatoes aren’t cooked enough, forget about it! You could be in the kitchen mashing for the next few hours.

With the Automatic Mashed Potato System you get efficiently and automatically mashed potatoes every time. Developed in 2007, the device is fairly simple. All you have to do is feed potatoes into the upper cavity, where they then pass through a seasoning unit and drop into a collection tray where they’re mashed and ready to go.

Pie Filler

Who has time to fill a pie?

Not you?

Well, don’t worry.

There’s a pie filling device to help you out. This strange and unnecessary Thanksgiving invention is a pumping apparatus that fills pie shells while they’re in the oven. This invention isn’t really made for the home user, but instead for the restaurant or pie shop that would need to fill multiple pie shells at once in less time.

Edible Spray Paint

Admit it. 

You’ve always dreamed of eating a solid gold turkey for Thanksgiving!

Wait, that’s not your dream?

Well, maybe it should be.

Thankfully, there exists an edible food spray that lets you transform your food into a work of art all with a can of spray paint. Yummy?

Cubed Eggs

In many families, deviled eggs are a huge Thanksgiving tradition, and now you can make the holiday a little more interesting with eggs in the shape of cubes.

This strange Thanksgiving invention lets you make boiled eggs into cube shapes.


Not at all.


Of course!

Beer Holster 

Thanksgiving isn’t complete without a few beers, but how do you carry your beer around?

You can’t just hold it in your hand, and thankfully now you don’t have to!

The beer holster can repurpose your gun holster into a beer can and bottle holder for the holidays. Be the cool guy at the party this year with this wacky and wonderful Thanksgiving invention that can be used anytime.

Chestnut Roaster

Chestnuts roasting over and open fire scream Thanksgiving, but let’s be honest, not many of us have an open fire in our house. And now, you don’t need one!

The Roaster for Chestnuts improves upon traditional chestnut roasting by making the process more efficient.

After all, who has time to hold a chestnut over their fireplace?

Frozen Turkey Stuffer

Wouldn’t it be convenient if you could purchase a pre-stuffed turkey?

That’s the idea behind the frozen fowl stuffer patented in 1960. This Thanksgiving invention lets you stuff frozen turkey so you can take it directly from the freezer into the oven, which eliminates the need for thawing, stuffing, sewing, and trussing. 

Fowl Preparation

Do you hate dealing with bones in your Thanksgiving turkey?

Good news!

With this Thanksgiving invention you don’t have to worry about pesky bird bones ever again. This fowl preparation device lets you completely remove the bones from a fowl without removing the skin. You do this before cooking for a delicious turkey that’s completely de-boned.

Butter Stick 

If you hate spreading butter with a knife, don’t worry!

Someone invented a butter stick that works just like a glue stick except with butter. Now, you can easily spread butter on your corn on the cob, toast, and everything else without a knife.
