If you do a lot of home cooking you surely know how indispensable a good colander/strainer can be.
You probably also know how difficult they can be to use!
You basically have two options:
1 – Let the colander sit on the bottom of the sink while you’re using it.
Unfortunately, this can be unsanitary because some of the things you were washing away in the first place can splash right back up onto the food items.
2 – You hold the colander in one hand while pouring the food items you’re going to wash into it with the other.
While this method is a lot safer in regards to the splashing problem mentioned above, it also requires a lot more physical dexterity and strength in the arms and hands.
Luckily, there’s a very easy solution to both of these problems…
It’s called an Over the Sink Collapsible Colander, and it works like a charm!
This nifty device does exactly what its name suggests – it expands to fit over your sink which keeps the food well above the bottom of the sink, and then it collapses for easy and efficient storage.
Here’s a side view of the colander:
And a “collapsed” view for easy storage:
I could go into detail here describing exactly how this thing works, but you can tell more about it by watching the short video showing it in action.
Note: As always, you can watch the video at full screen by clicking the “square” icon that will pop up in the lower-right corner of the video after it begins playing.
Pretty awesome, right?
These handy gadgets are quite inexpensive and they’re guaranteed to make your life in the kitchen a lot easier, and much less frustrating.
