The Chef Basket is a brand new product that addresses some of the more common kitchen problems. This “12-in-1 kitchen tool” suggests it can help a person avoid burns, reduce accidental spills and even help make space in your kitchen cabinets.
According to the official Chef Basket website the handles of the basket are specially designed so that they always stay cool to the touch. This feature of the Chef Basket would appear to eliminate any chance of nasty burns. To use the basket you simply place it inside a pot. You can use it for a variety of cooking methods including; boiling, steaming, blanching, deep frying and poaching. What looks great about the Chef Basket is the ability to safely pick it up at anytime to see how your food is doing. When you’re satisfied with the results of your food you just pull the Chef Basket up and allow the water to drain right in the pot. You will no longer have to pour hot water out of the pot while trying to make sure everything made it into a colander. This should eliminate those moments of hot steam rushing into your face over the sink, while also allowing you to reuse the water. It should also mean that you won’t have to worry about accidentally spilling anything. You can take your food right from the pot to your plate in one simple motion.
Finally, the Chef Basket appears to fold up quite nicely and it wouldn’t take up much storage room. Now you could get rid of those bulky colanders and strainers and just use this one compact product.
