Yes, and currently this best-selling invention is available for just $12 (was $30).


It drains the water and keeps your food in! It’s no wonder nearly 25,000 Amazon shoppers have given it the perfect five-star rating.

Why is it a good offer?

This is about the cheapest price we’ve seen for this screen all year, aside from Prime Day when it was a dollar less. Plus, you can use it in just about any pot or pan, so you never have to buy multiple versions. Green is currently a whopping 60% off, making it an ideal time to purchase.

Why do I need this?

This strainer is made entirely of silicone, so it fits in virtually any round bowl, pot, or pan – even those with a rim. All you have to do is attach it on two sides and pour out any excess water, fat, oil or sauce.

Storage is where this strainer really shines: it’s about a quarter the size of an average strainer and is completely flexible (unlike traditional metal or plastic strainers). They even fit in your cutlery drawer! It’s so compact that it leaves virtually no space in your kitchen: I keep it behind my sink and pull it out when I’m cooking pasta.

At only $12, this won’t put a “stress” on your budget. (Sorry. Just…sorry.)

What reviewers say

Shoppers absolutely love this wondrous gizmo: over 24,700 of them have given it the perfect five-star rating.

“This is a better invention than the Pet Rock!” exclaimed one 70s aficionado. “I used it for the first time to drain fat from beef from a 12-inch skillet and it was much easier than using the lid or losing burgers through the holes of a colander. …The natural curvature of the strainer easily conformed to the pan shape. Would buy again 100 times!”

Another shared: “It works over every pot and pan in our kitchen, and it works well. No more accidentally spilling your hard-earned meal because the lid slips when you try to drain the pan. Great kitchen appliance!”

Here is a quick summary: “Really unique concept! I often needed three hands to drain spaghetti or other foods in a large pot. With this strainer, I simply place it on top of the pot and use my remaining two hands to steer the pot. Best invention ever!”

“How could I live without this for so many years? Love it!” enthused last fan. “It makes draining pasta much easier. I had no problems with it not fitting in my pots. It’s also great for draining fat from cooked meat.” They also have some advice: “Since the colander isn’t very large, my only tip is to drain the food slowly so that the food doesn’t fall out of the pot. Other than that, I had no problems draining two pounds of cooked fettuccine.

With your choice of three bright colors or simple gray (prices vary) – why not snag something for the chefs in your life?

“We now have several GreenPans. “They are excellent,” enthuses a reviewer. “Thanks to its durability, the coating doesn’t flake off into the food. We take great care of our cookware and have used Calphalon, Cuisinart, and All-Clad. I will buy GreenPan from now on. This one is the perfect medium size when it comes to a sauté pan with a lid. It’s too short and the actual stock pot is too high.
