So when Ivy and Christy recommended the over-the-sink-board idea to Maya to help her extend her kitchen counter space, I was flooded with nostalgia for the summer meals I helped my mother cook in that small kitchen. I went in search of the C&B model Christy mentioned, to see what they look like these days.
C&B's update (pictured) is definitely an improvement on looks, and we like the built-in colander. And at $29 it's less expensive than this similar model from Williams-Sonoma and this one from Kitchen Emporium. But we actually prefer this $17.95 polyprolylene one because it's dishwasher-safe and easier to keep sanitary.
Maybe we'll try to dig up the original.
