Chef Basket is a clever kitchen gadget that makes boiling, steaming, deep fat frying, blanching and draining so much easier. This flexible reversible basket starts off flat, but opens out into a hanging-style basket that fits perfectly into your sauce pans. You can boil pasta or deep fry chips in the Chef Basket, and then just lift it up to drain. The handles never get hot, so cooking is safer, as well as easier.You can invert the basket to use as a steamer. You can even flip down the handles and use it as a free standing colander. The handles make it easy to move your food from the sink to the pan, and from the pan to your plate. And when youre done, it folds down flat for easy cleaning and storage.
