Life's juggling act ensures that each day my sink will end up full or in disarray. The state of my sink often leaves me no room to accomplish simple tasks like draining noodles or rinsing fruits and vegetables. I needed a way to use my sink without being in the sink. So I designed the ReadyStrainer.

PREP The ReadyStrainer is ready to go from rinsing your garden produce to being a serving bowl on your table.

COOK Designed for everyday use. The ReadyStrainer works in and out of the sink keeping you ready and your food free from germs.

ENTERTAIN Serve ice or chill drinks. The ReadyStrainer can be used inside or out.

Starting at $19

Risks and challenges

I have gone through multiple designs and prototypes to balance form and function of the ReadyStrainer. One of the primary design goals was to ensure that the ReadyStrainer could be manufactured efficiently. I have secured quotes for mold manufacturing and unit costs.

The biggest foreseen risks involve producing the mold for the ReadyStrainer. To reduce those risks, I have partnered with a product designer that has over 25 years of experience. His expertise is in plastic part production and manufacturing. I am also working with an experienced small business to better understand shipping and distribution.

I have thoroughly considered and planned for the risks and challenges involved in completing this project, I am confident that I will be able to successfully deliver a ReadyStrainer to your doorstep.
