For Valentines day I bought myself my husband a new strainer. AND since I bought it early….. I’ve already showed him. I just can’t keep a secret.
We had a plastic blue one, which I have never totally liked. Mostly because when you put it in the sink and pour your pan of boiling hot water and pasta in it, the water touches the bottom of the sink then rushes back up into your cooked pasta. YUCK.
Also because it’s plastic.. and your putting hot food into it, we know this is dangerous.
The little princess and I were at Target shopping for craft supplies for MOPS when I ran across this beautiful strainer. oh, I just loved it! It’s stainless steel, AND it’s footed, so no more nasty-bottom-of-the-sink-water touching our cooked food. It was $8. An inexpensive upgrade, and one I’m very glad we’ve made.
Bonus: It’s cute enough that I’m not embarrassed if it’s in the sink when company comes over.
Whenever you can switch away from plastic you’re making a good choice!
