Shopping Cart: Staybowlizer, ‘No-Potato Passover,’ WWID towels, vegetable


The Staybowlizer, like another set of hands. (Deb Lindsey/For The Washington Post)

KITCHEN HELPER: This sturdy, 83 / 4-inch silicone ring called the Staybowlizer was a hit at the recent International Housewares Show in Chicago, where it earned an Innovation Award. Use it to secure a makeshift double-boiler; under a bowl when whisking vinaigrettes and batters; as a trivet; and as a second pair of hands for anyone who’s less than steady in the kitchen. It is oven-, microwave- and dishwasher-safe. $24.99. Available on Amazon.com and TheGrommet.com. For more information, go to www.staybowlizer.com.
