This Hands-Free Bag Holder Is the Kitchen Gadget You Never Knew You Needed
The winter months are right around the corner, and if part of your hibernation routine involves making big batches of sauces and soups to freeze for later, you’re probably well-acquainted with the struggle of trying to get whatever you just made into wayward, floppy freezer bags. Even if you’re a seasoned pro, you’re bound to have some spillage.
Allow us to introduce the kitchen gadget you never knew you needed: this Jokari Hands-Free Baggy Rack.
Jokari Hands-Free Baggy Rack, $17 for four
Made to force plastic bags to stand upright for easy filling, these racks have a rubber base to ensure a tight seal on your counter while in use, and clips to hold the bag in place.
Line up multiple racks on your counter the next time you have a big pot of deliciousness that needs preserving (a pack of four is available on Amazon right now for just $17), and get everything taken care of in minutes, with no mess. Bonus: The holders fold flat for easy storage.
Still not convinced? We’ll leave you with a gushy user review: “I’d seen these things on Pinterest plenty of times and always thought I didn’t need to spend a few extra bucks on something so simple. I can hold my own bags open. But let’s face it; we only have two hands, and trying to hold a bag while scraping food into [it] ends up with your food on the counter instead. This little gadget is SO incredibly handy. It takes mere seconds to set it up with a bag and if you’re careful, it keeps the zipper/seam clean, so you don’t have to wipe it down before sealing.”
