My small round cookie cutters often fell down the drain into the garbage disposal at cleaning time, until I came up with an easy solution. Since I already have my sieve out to sift flour for the recipe, I put the sieve in the sink, then put the cutters in the sieve as I am done with them. This also eases cleaning. After I have scrubbed each cutter, I put them all back into the sieve and rinse them.
