Oxo Sink Strainer - Gift From The Kitchen Gods

We've landed here in Woodstock. The house we're in is lovely -- spacious and open. And the kitchen is big and beautiful. I will post some photos soon. In the meantime, I wanted to share my favorite new gift from the kitchen gods with you all. 

Although I love the sink in our new kitchen, I did not love the drain covers that came with it. They're your typical drain cover type deals but their little push-pull mechanisms never work for some reason so they make it nearly impossible to let the water drain out without removing them. But, of course, removing them lets too much food go down the drain (this is composting country, after all, not in-sink garbage disposal country.)

But then I happened upon these awesome Oxo drain strainer on one of my many recent trips to Bed, Bath & Beyond or somesuch place.

They're made of silicone, which is very flexible and allows you to just flip the thing inside out over the compost bucket or garbage can for super easy cleaning.

And they look nice, stay put, and won't scratch your sink, too. At $6 a pop, what's not to like?

I just came across your blog when googling "Pickled Beets". I plan on trying your 2007 recipe when I get home today, and I'm glad I found your blog! Good luck with your move. I used to live in the Bay Area and I miss it, but East Coast living is pretty amazing too :-)
