I go to staggering lengths to avoid pulling out a strainer—it takes up too much of the sink, and it’s just another thing to clean. This pour-off sieve is my new favorite shortcut. It’s perfect for draining pasta (the noodles don’t have to leave the pot, so they’re easy to toss with the sauce) or for quickly straining blanched vegetables. The 13-inch-wide stainless-steel crescent fits against the rim of most large pots, so you can hold it and the pot’s handles together as you tip it over the sink. About $12 from Amazon.
