If you're short on kitchen space, you become really good at finding the smallest possible versions of everything. For example, my dish rack goes over my sink, my oven doubles as storage for my pots and pans, and my colander clips onto my skillet. Wait, what?
That's right: This bestselling strainer is not your mother's strainer. For starters, it's made entirely of silicone (unlike traditional metal or plastic) and can fit virtually any round bowl, pot or pan — even the lipped kind. All you have to do is clip it onto two sides and pour out the extra water, grease, oil or sauce.
Storage is where this strainer really shines, though: It's approximately a quarter of the size of your average colander, and it's totally flexible. You can even fit it in your cutlery drawer! It's so compact, it leaves practically zero footprint in your kitchen: I keep mine behind my sink and pull it out whenever I'm boiling pasta.
It's on sale (in the green shade) for just $14 if you use promo code 10BVRZJ7 (just paste it in when you're checking out). And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
Shoppers are absolutely loving this nifty kitchen gizmo: Over 12,700 of them gave it a perfect five-star rating.
"This is a better invention than the pet rock!" one shopper exclaimed. "My first use of it was draining fat from beef from a 12-inch pan, and it was so much easier than using the lid or losing burger through the holes of a strainer...The natural curve of the strainer adjusted easily to the pan shape...Would repurchase 100 times!"
Another shared: "It works over every pot and pan in our kitchen, and it works well. No more accidentally dumping out your hard-earned meal because your lid slips as you try to drain the pan. Great kitchen device!"
In short: "Really unique concept! Many times I needed three hands to drain spaghetti or other foods in a large pot. With this strainer, I just snap it on the pot and use my remaining two hands to direct the pot. Best invention ever!"
With this low price and a choice of five fun colors, why not nab some for the other cooks in your life?
