What a GREAT birthday gift! Incredibly thoughtful. Seriously, it's PERFECT!
I HATE the crap that gets caught in our sink, and I hate the way the stupid sink-stopper randomly plugs the drain. Who wants to wash dishes by hand when the sink is filling up with a pool of liquefied detritus and vegetable residue? It makes my hands stink of Teflon and rot, and if it weren't for the Palmolive they'd be dry and cracked as hell.
You know I love Good Grips, but I had no idea they made a sink stopper! The OXO Good Grips Sink
Strainer combines sleek stainless steel with flexible, stain-resistant
silicone. The easy-to-clean silicone basket traps food debris to
prevent clogs. When it’s time to empty the Strainer, I simply pick it up
by the center post and invert the silicone basket for easy debris
removal. And the silicone underside won’t scratch the sink basin!
Best. Birthday. Ever.
For the record, this is partially my wife's sense of humor, and partially the result of me buying the new iPhone and other long-term investments, all of which I justified as "my birthday presents." Frankly, an extra hour of sleep this morning would have been sufficient.
