How many times have you pumped the family up for pasta night, only to lose precious noodles over the sink while draining the pot of hot water? Granted, traditional colanders can also save that from happening, but they're an added extra step. The Kitchen Gizmo Snap N Strain Strainer ($12, originally $30) is not only smaller than a colander and, therefore, space-saving, but the silicone colander attachment is heat-resistant, making it practical to use in all cooking situations. It also works on frying pans, so if you've whipped up hamburgers and need to drain the oil and fat, you can clip this onto the frying pan. It's a gadget you'll get tons of use out of and it will help prep family dinner in no time.
