The Chef Basket is the latest product introduced to help you in your kitchen. It is a flexible container with three settings. First it can be used a number of ways on your stovetop: cooking, deep frying, poaching, boiling, blanching, par-boiling and steaming. When you flip the handles of the Chef Basket it becomes a colander and it can be used for rising, draining, washing and straining. Do one more flip on the Chef Basket and it becomes flat for easy storage.
I think the best features, however, are discovered when you are actually doing some cooking in the kitchen. First, the handles actually stay cool even when the Chef Basket is in boiling water. That means those painful cooking moments are gone for good. Second, you can lift the Chef Basket directly up from the pot allowing you to see actually what you are cooking whenever you want. Finally, the ability to lift the Chef Basket up also allows you to drain the water right into you pot. You can then place your food right on a plate and you’re ready to eat.
The Chef Basket is only $10.00 (plus $6.99 S & H) and it comes with a great Chef Guide and the Everlast Chef Knife. This knife is also a great kitchen product. It’s made of hardened steel, it never needs sharpening and it can cut right through bone. If you order online they’ll even give you a second Chef Basket for free! It’s a great deal!
