Kitchen Gadgets: Over the Sink Strainer

Over the sink cutting board

I am always looking at ways to simplify tasks. I like this idea due to it simplifying the cleanup. I don’t have water or other liquids running off the cutting board onto the counter. I just sweep the waste into the garbage disposal. The colander is right there to sweep items that are washed right into the strainer to drain. If I chop things that need to go into bowls or containers, I can put the container below the board and push the items right in it. I don’t have to lift up the cutting board or pick up the chopped items with my hands.
There are several types of cutting boards out there. There are the polypropylene types. There is a large model which is approx 22″x12″ and a smaller version of approx 11″x20″.

•Silicone strainer snaps in and expands accordion-style for draining and straining; also removes for stand-alone use.
•Cutting board is made of nonporous polypropylene, which provides a tough cutting surface that will not dull knives.
•Nonslip gripper ends keep board securely in place.
•Board fits easily into dishwasher for easy cleaning; strainer is also dishwasher safe.

There is also wood varieties, which some people prefer. They come with both a stainless steel wire strainer and a collapsible silicone strainer.

I have provided some helpful links to Amazon for the items mentioned above.
