Silicone scoop can lift veggies from the pot

Kuhn Rikon’s Colander Scoop ($18) will lift and drain pasta, potatoes, or veggies out of the pot in one swoop. The long handle keeps hands safe from scalding water while the 2-cup silicone scoop has a flat edge that helps place the food into a bowl or plate. Available in green, red, and black, it’s less cumbersome to store than a standard colander and easy to pull out for tasks like draining a can of beans. Bring one as host gift, even to a cook who has everything. That cook won’t have this. Available at KitchenWares by Blackstones, 215 Newbury St., Boston, 857-366-4237; Kitchen Outfitters,

342 Great Road, Acton,

978-263-1955; Pier I
