blue whale shaped pot strainer

It has always seemed amazing that the blue whale, the largest mammal on the planet, subsists entirely on teeny-tiny ocean krill. Long strands of baleen in the whale’s mouth constantly strain the tiny creatures from the sea water to feed the enormous animal.

The blue whale’s unusual way of feeding inspired a rather adorable kitchen accessory: the Big Blue pot strainer. Shaped like a blue whale and made of food-safe HIPS plastic, the Big Blue fits along the edge of a pot so you can brace the pot against the strainer as you tip the water out.

The $10 kitchen accessory from Fred & Friends is a far more adorable way to strain your pasta than pouring it into a colander in the sink – and probably the easiest way to fit a blue whale into your kitchen.
