Baggy Rack Better Than A Third Hand

Baggy Rack

Storage bags are extremely convenient in the kitchen despite being poorly designed. What’s that you say? How can a bag be poorly designed? Well okay, maybe it’s not the bag’s fault, it’s just that they would be a whole heck of a lot easier to use if we had three hands, the extra one being used to prop open the bag while we pour stuff in.

As humans, we’ve been using bags long enough, perhaps it’s time for evolution to step in and help us out here. I think a third hand would look quite stunning protruding from… well, somewhere. Or, we could wait for evolution to occur on it’s own timetable and use the Baggy Rack in the meantime. Either way.
