Be it for comedy, as an impromptu safety helmet, or to stop government spy satellites from monitoring your thoughts, we’ve all worn a strainer on our heads at one time or another. But a strainer can be a genuine fashion accessory when it’s designed to look exactly like a fancy bowler hat.

Made from dishwasher-safe and flexible polypropylene, the bowler hat colander is perfect for straining washed fruits and vegetables, or for straining pasta.

What the $12 kitchen accessory isn’t good at, however, is keeping your head dry if you happen to be walking in the rain. Or stopping those government spy satellites from reading your thoughts. Aluminum foil is still best for that.
