If this picture looks familiar to you, you're not alone. This is something that happens every season to millions of people around the country.
They think they can cook. Then they realize: they can't. Then they freak out, their families freak out, everyone is freaking out, the holidays are ruined, aliens from Mars come down and take us over, we become their servants and the entire human population as we know it dies out.
Stop the madness, and get yourself some help. Here's the help.
Straining can be very straining. It can also be draining if you don't strain correctly. You'll be straining again and again.
Okay, we'll stop and just let you know that this silicone strainer will actually make you want to sit around and strain things because of how easy it is. You can pour to your heart's content, because it's actually easy now instead of messy and terrible when you're trying to be precise.

People are saying that if you use this chopper, you'll never really need a knife again. Or you'll never need to use a knife to chop things. You might need it to spread some butter or make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. But chopping? That's a thing of the past. You can save all the time now.

Stop throwing stuff away. There's people starving in other countries and they would hate you if they saw you throwing things away. Make people not hate you and get these silicone food savers.
All you have to do is pop your leftover fruits or veggies into the bottom of these babies and you're in business.

When you are cooking things, you often have to slice things up. This can often prove more difficult than it actually looks in the cooking shows when they do that fancy knife motion, resulting in your extreme frustration or accidentally cutting off a limb. One or the other, really.
Hold on to your produce with this stainless steel holder that has a comfortable handle that makes slicing things much more simple. It holds everything from vegetables to fruit to meat to your homework that you want to somehow get rid of.
Cooking is fun, but cleaning up is not. Think about frying some juicy bacon on the stove in the morning. You can indulge in that delicious bacony goodness, but all the while in the back of your head you're thinking, dang it, I have to clean up to gosh darn stove from all my bacon grease.
Well, no you don't. Just throw these mess protectors around your burners, and they'll take on all the mess for you. Once you're done, you just throw them away.
