Some years ago, we redesigned our kitchen. Here is a picture of part of the kitchen. As you can see, we have lots of drawers and cabinet space. We love it! It works really well and we have cooked ever since. Though there is one issue, the drawer openings are a little narrow from what we are used to. Because of this, it is difficult for us to store kitchen tools that are a little tall in them.
Recently, I went to my favorite kitchen store and came across these kitchen tools to save space. I was so excited to find these items. Finally, I don't have to destroy my drawers just to store a kitchen tool. Below I am going to share with you the items I replaced to save space in the drawers.
Splatter Guard that Folds in Half with No Handle
First, I found this large splatter guard. It fits standard pans nicely and can be stored in a drawer easily. The traditional guards would never fit in my drawer. It would have to be stored somewhere else. Here is one from Amazon, if you want to buy it. Kuhn Rikon Foldable Splatter Guard, 12-Inch, Green
Whisk that Flattens
Then, I found this whisk that flattens. The one I purchased was coated, which works well with non-stick saucepans too. Here is one from Amazon but it is metal and not coated. Kuhn Rikon Easy-Store 10-Inch Whisk It saves so much room in my baking drawer.
Potato Masher that Flattens
And lastly, I found this collapsible potato masher. My concern was it wouldn't be sturdy enough for mashing potatoes, but it works great. To tilt the masher, all I needed to do is press the two sides together. It then locks into place. Really cool. Here is the brand I purchased: Prepara Flip Potato Masher, Brown I found it on Amazon too.

Hey Sabrina! I love my flat whisk! I will be on the lookout for that collapsible masher. Thanks for the share!
Those are great especially for people with small spaces like most of us. I will keep those in mind.
LOVE these new collapsible gadgets! I've seen the collapsible salad spinner but these utensils are the very ones that get stuck in the drawers! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I just might switch my old ones out for these new space -saving ones.
Great products Sabrina, I have some collapsible sieves I found at Target.
Great finds! I've never seen these either.
I didn't even know some of these collapsible utensils existed. They would be great for people with tiny kitchens and RVers too. Thanks for sharing.
