#1 Kitchen Gizmo Snap ‘N Strain Strainer

Throw away that old over-sized colander.  This clip on silicone strainer fits all pots, pans and bowls and comes in a cool lime green color that will make it easy to find in your gadget drawer.

We like this gadget because it saves space in your kitchen and is a safer way to teach young cooks how to drain hot liquid from a pot.

  • UNIVERSAL FIT DESIGN– Fits nearly any sized pot, pan, saucepan and bowl
  • USES VERY LITTLE SPACE– Uses much less storage space than traditional strainers, colanders and sieves
  • FINE MESH– allows easy straining and pouring of water and juices from spaghetti pasta, ground beef grease, tuna fish, tomatoes and other foods.
