Things We Love: The Joseph Joseph Scoop Colander

Every once in a while, The Mouthy Housewives will delight you with a product that we love. These are the products that one or more of us use in our home, kitchen, and in Wendi’s case, bedroom. The posts will be about products that we love and use and stand behind. If we are ever provided a product free of charge to review, we will disclose it. In this case, however, we were not compensated in any way for writing about this product. Which is an outrage.

The days of a Mouthy Housewife are long and lonely. Why, there is advice to dispense, nails to file, laundry to ignore. It takes a lot out of a girl. And when it comes to the culinary arts, let’s face it, we need all the help we can get. Because unlike Julia Child, we can’t count on those South Beach unfriendly sips of sherry. We need to get through the preparations on our own steam.

That’s why anything that makes the cooking experience more pleasant, interesting or attractive is a huge plus. Like this Joseph Joseph Scoop Colander

Pretty and useful, just like The Mouthy Housewives!

We love it. Because when we’re cooking something in boiling water, like pasta, or lima beans, or a magical potion, and we are too drained to er.. drain the pot (or maybe there are little kids underfoot, who the hell knows) we can just put in the Scoop Colander and retrieve our masterpiece. It’s heat resistant to 480 F, so you could probably use it on Mars during those interplanetary visits to the in-laws’. And you can use it to take stuff out of the oven, too.

And, duh, it’s dishwasher safe. Because the day we recommend something that isn’t dishwasher safe is the day that you get to yank our curlers out.

And the Scoop Colander comes in pretty colors. Some will even match your glass of Merlot.

P.S. And anticipating a question that is surely to pop up: No, you can’t get more bang for your buck and use the Scoop Colander for the litter box.

Damn you for the disclaimer! I thought I’d get one for my mom. Her place is small and double-duty was exactly what I had in mind. Two? She’d have no place to put the other one.

Well, guess what? I already have one, and its color exactly matches my glass of Merlot!!!! 😀

I have a knack for cooking and I enthusiastically bought it (and find it damn useful) despite my having 2 skimmers, 2 colanders and God knows how many spatulas, slotted or whole! 😉
