Okay Garbage Bowl fans, happy times are coming. According to HFN, Rachael Ray has teamed up with to tabletop and giftware manufacturer Precidio Inc. to create a line of melamine and acrylic tableware. The line will creatively be called the Rachael Ray Collection and it will be launched at the International Home & Housewares Show on March 12.
The idea of the garbage bowl is that if you stick a big bowl next to you on the counter and throw all the trash in it, then you will save time by avoiding trips to the trash. Precidio says that "[a]ll of the products created for the collection were inspired by Ray’s time-saving philosophy and no-nonsense practicality."
They will even have a special product called a "Garbage Bowl, or GB, a countertop receptacle for food prep debris, developed by Ray as a result of her ongoing quest to reduce time and streamline effort in meal preparation." Other items in the line are called the Hipster and Paisley, which are "colorful melamine serveware add a unique twist to dining and entertaining."
I personally don't use a garbage bowl because of the way my kitchen is set up. Instead, I just pull the garbage can out from underneath the sink, which is right next to where I chop. So, I just throw stuff directly into the garbage as I go. But, I do think the garbage bowl is a kick ass idea and now you can get an official Rachael Ray garbage bowl.
Heck, I might have to get one even though I don't need it!
