Collapsible Strainer (green)

I’m into collapsible things. Collapsible stuff saves storage space which helps makes cabinets and closets tidy, and who do you know that wouldn’t want that? This strainer is large enough to strain the stuff you want like pasta and potatoes, but collapses on down to save that precious space in a drawer or cabinet. Dishwasher safe.

Collapsible Funnel

It’s a collapsible funnel. Why all funnels aren’t collapsible is beyond me; it makes total sense and completely eliminates any storage challenges that one would have in the kitchen. You just fold it flat and stick it in a drawer. Boje Estermann, the man behind the magic, got the inspiration from his reflex camera (the accordion-like shape). It’s made of Santoprene, which is a durable/flexible material that can withstand those extreme temperatures that comes with cooking and such. Microwave and dishwasher safe.

6″ diam. Extends to 6.5″l
