Can Alexa cook a turkey?

Answer: No, but she can give you advice from the experts.

by / November 21, 2018

This year, Butterball has added an Amazon Alexa skill to its repertoire of ways to provide turkey-cooking assistance. Over the past year, the company famous for its turkey-cooking hotline has been compiling answers to the questions it receives most frequently. (Insert poultry pun here.)

All of Alexa’s answers were recorded by real expert call-takers from Butterball’s Turkey Talk-Line, giving the skill a more personal and less automated feel. And since the size of the turkey has a significant impact on the cooking of it, the suggestions given will be based on whatever size bird you have. There are also some suggested recipes, as well as a pep talk if you’re really nervous about getting it just right.
