The Silicon Strainer
We have all been frustrated at some time or another with the traditional strainer. You have to dump your pot into the strainer or lift a hot, metal strainer out of said pot. The silicon strainer sits inside your pot whether you are trying to boil or steam but because it is made out of silicone it will remain relatively cool. You can pull it right out of the pot without worrying about draining the container. Norpro Red Knockdown 8 Inch Steamer Strainer
