What is it?
When 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? Yep, and right now this top-selling invention is on sale for as low as $11 this Prime Day.
Why is it a good deal?
This is the best price we’ve spotted on this strainer all year — even better than July’s Prime Day! Plus, you can use it on just about any pot or pan, so you’ll never need to buy multiple versions.
Why do I need this?
This strainer is made entirely of silicone, which means it 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 the average colander, and it’s totally flexible (unlike traditional metal or plastic ones). You can even fit it in your cutlery drawer! It’s so compact, it leaves practically no footprint in your kitchen: I keep mine behind my sink and pull it out whenever I’m boiling pasta.
What reviewers say:
Shoppers are absolutely loving this wondrous gizmo: Over 24,000 of them have given it a perfect five-star rating.
“This is a better invention than the Pet Rock!” one ’70s aficionado 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!”
Here’s a succinct take: “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 four vibrant colors or basic gray, why not nab some for the cooks in your life?
