When you live in a house with a small kitchen, cooking any meal means things will get messy fast, with lids, ladles, spatulas, and ingredient bowls littered all over the countertop. You put up with it because you have to. But what if there was a way to keep most of that mess away from the kitchen counter? That’s exactly what the Lidsitter offers.
A storage frame that mounts on pot edges, it’s designed to serve as a handy place to set down lids and cooking utensils. It actually acts as a hinge of sorts for the lid, allowing you cover and uncover a pot without having to remove the lid from the frame.
The Lidsitter looks entirely simple, consisting of nothing but an oddly-shaped stainless steel frame and a nylon handle. That’s it. Once mounted on the side of the pot, though, that dead-simple design can lead to many conveniences. Not only does it keep the lid and cooking utensils out of the countertop (or worse, a stovetop), for instance, any condensation from the lid is drained back into the pot, making for even less mess. Plus, since both your lid and cooking utensils are right by the pot, you get easy access to them every single time. Heck, you don’t even need to touch the lid, since you can lift it off by tugging at the Lidsitter’s handle, reducing annoying contact with hot objects.
A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for the Lidsitter. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at $10.
