Martha Stewart's original idea used a funnel out in the garden shed (because we all have one of those, right?), but we think it works just as well in the kitchen.
The funnel works great on two levels: it not only offers protection for the twine from splatters, but it also keeps it tangle free and ready to use. It also doesn't taking up valuable cabinet or drawer space. Just hook it over a rack or add a nail under a shelf to give it something to hang from. Perfect!
