I know most people have a dishwasher at home because it makes their lives easier, but lots of us still wash the dishes by hand. That is why we need one silly thing called sink strainer. I admit I did not know much about it until I got married and I had to learn a lot of things about home and home appliances and all the gadgets I had to use around the house. So this Tovolo Silicone Sink Strainer drew my attention as one useful tool to have around the house, especially in the kitchen. For those of you who have no clue what this thing is – it’s of silicone device that is placed on the bottom of the kitchen sink, just where the water drains out of it.
It allows water to go through it, but kind of filters it, keeping all the debris. The silicone material makes it stay fixed to the sink and can be easily removed when you want to throw away everything stored in it. Any way, there is a second mode to this strainer that completely blocks the way to both food and water, so you just have to choose the right mode for you.
