The Edge Strainer Holds Water when Throwing Out Garbage from the Sink

It's a mild but haunting thought; when draining food from the sink strainer, the water that drips during the trip from the sink to the garbage can is hardly salubrious, which is where The Edge strainer could prove useful.

When straining foods from the sink, the drips of water are often an accumulation of unconsumed foodstuffs. Designed by Tae-jin Kim, The Edge works simply by tilting the strainer so the water gathers in the corner of the strainer. The design comes in four components; a handle, the strainer rack -- which is larger than normal designs -- a net, and a gutter to catch the water.

After pulling out the strainer by the handle, users can drain the water off through the bottom as normal, then tilt the strainer at a 45 degree angle where the gutter catches the remaining water that sits together with the foodstuffs, which can then be transferred to the garbage can without any water falling out.
