Barbecue Basting Straight From The Bottle

Jokari Silicone Bottletop Baster

When using barbecue sauce right out of the bottle there is little reason to pour it into a bowl before slopping it on the chicken and ribs. Why have an inbetweener? While emptying it out straight from the bottle might be fast, it’s not the best way to get maximum coverage, but slathering it on with a brush would do the trick. The Jokari Silicone Bottletop Baster lets grillmasters skip the mess and head straight to the good stuff. Just squeeze, baste and eat!

But there is a way for everyone to have the pasta they want without boiling pot after pot of water.

The Jokari 229476 Healthy Steps Pasta Portion Basket is part of a set that allows for up to four individual servings of pasta to be prepared in one cooking vessel. The cooking baskets rest on the edge of a pot, allowing pasta of any type to cook undisturbed. Spaghetti and macaroni at the same time? No problem—just lift out your pasta basket when done. As for the sauce… well, for that you’re on your own.

Portion Control For Squeeze Bottle Condiments

Jokari 229482 Dressing Lid

Not all squeeze bottles are made the same. Some, like ketchup, have lids with a hole in the center to constrict the flow while squeezing. And then some don’t. Salad dressings are often packaged in bottles that don’t have appropriate lids. So, you squeeze and always get more dressing than salad in the bowl.
