The Yukka bin won top prize on the BBC’s Innovation Nation, a TV competition for inventors in the UK. In addition to locking at any desired height, the whole thing breaks down into pieces small enough to fit in a dishwasher.

So far we’ve only seen it for sale in Japan, but this online retailer ships overseas (provided you can make it through the form).
