The best thing about pasta night is, well, the pasta you get to eat for dinner. The worst thing about pasta night is pulling the colander insert out of your pot and getting boiling water everywhere, or fumbling with multiple different sized strainers, trying to find one big enough to catch all the spaghetti, but with holes small enough that it won't slip out into the sink. And this doesn't even include the fun of hoping the strainer stays upright and doesn't flip over under the weight of all that water, spilling your angel hair down the drain.

Thankfully, nearly 11,400 five-star ratings on Amazon point to an inventive solution in the Kitchen Gizmo Snap N Strain Strainer. Unlike footed colanders or strainers that sit in the sink, this strainer is made with clips that attach to the side of any pot, pan or bowl. This way, both of your hands can lift whatever needs to be strained and poured out with confidence while the strainer holds back all the food inside. 

It comes in five different colors to suit the decor of your kitchen and its flat design means it can be stored wherever you need it—unlike it's tall, bulky cousins. Plus, the Snap N Strain Strainer is affordable at $16, but a couple of the colors are currently on sale, making them even more inexpensive.
