For me, this party platter is the best thing since sliced bread! We host cookouts several times a  year, and I usually put vegetables onto a baking sheet to set out. The problem with that is, there is no place to put dip, and the bugs get into the veggies. With this platter, there is a place right in the middle for dip, and there is a lid to keep bugs out. The lid is very nice, and I love that it’s see-through, so that I don’t have to take the lid off for people to see what’s inside. The silicone is very easy to clean, and I adore how it collapses to store easily. This makes it nice because it doesn’t take up a ton of room!

Good Cooking Collapsible Handheld Strainer

This strainer ($29.99) maintains shape while in use with 6″ diameter and long handle, then collapses to fit in cabinets and drawerscooking

  • Collapses so it is easy to store- fits in cabinets and drawers
  • Maintains shape while in use
  • Long handle keeps hands away from steam
  • Stainless steel base and rim make this colander sturdy and durable
  • 6″ diameter

This handheld strainer is actually fun to use! Yes, I said fun. I suppose if you don’t enjoy cooking, it wouldn’t be fun. It’s definitely more convenient and easier to use than those other handheld strainers. The previous ones that I had were more of a flat strainer that was pressed against the side of the pan. Water then drained through the holes. The problem with that, was that it would slip, and all of the pasta (or whatever you were draining) went into the sink. It was very wasteful. This spiffy strainer isn’t like that at all! The long handle makes it easy to hold onto without getting burnt. It holds a decent amount of food, as well. I’ve used it for many things, but mostly pasta. What can I say, we are pasta eaters! It is easy to clean up as well, using just soap and water. Because it flattens out when not in use, it will fit nicely into your utensil drawer. This is a huge plus for me! I’m really enjoying this strainer, and it has definitely made cooking easier!
