Kitchen Things for the Home..

1. Drained of Ideas

Sink Strainer

Looking to add one last touch to your nautically themed home? Check out this sink strainer ($15.95) which features imagery from the sea. The topper design is hand cast from pewter, and the basket is stainless steel. Find this item at The Plum Porch, 181 Route 149 in Marstons Mills. For more information, visit, or call (508) 420-7118.

2. Service with a Sound

Gurgle Pot

What’s fun, colorful, and capable of serving up a cool drink? A gurgle pot, that’s what. This unique item ($45) has been very popular at M. Brann & Co in Mashpee Commons lately. The pot features a fluid fish design, comes in several creative colors including cobalt, sunflower, and kiwi, and—the kicker—it ‘gurgles’ when you pour it. Great for a gift, the gurgle pot can be used for drink service, or to serve as a vase. For more information, call (508) 477-0299.

3. Hot item keeps serving areas cool


When you are serving lasagna or a casserole, keep the heat off your finished table with Stretch™ ($18), a collapsible heat-resistant pot stand by Joseph Joseph. Though capable of holding large pans and trays, the pot stand—available in black, pink, and green—makes storage easy as it collapses to 7 inches by 2-1/2 inches. Available at Sea Salt & Pepper at 466 Main Street in Chatham. For more information, visit, or call (508) 348-1864.
