Cooking in a RV kitchen can be a challenge if it requires a significant amount of counter space. Countertop space is one commodity that is highly coveted when it is time for dinner. We have always enjoyed cutting up fresh fruit, veggies, sausages, breads and all kinds of tasty items that make a mess during preparation. Nearly everything edible leaves crumbs or scraps behind these days. So whether you are the cook or the kitchen cleanup crew you may find the Kitchen Art Scrap Trap a great addition to your RV kitchen gadget collection. This seems to be a “I should have thought of that” concept for sure.
RV Kitchen Gadget: Kitchen Art Scrap Trap
The Kitchen Art Scrap Trap is a simple yet effective idea. It is for catching your scraps, crumbs, and throw-aways during meal preparation. It is essentially a plastic bin that hooks overtop of your kitchen drawer or the cupboard door. With the door or drawer closed it becomes a convenient hovering container which to brush all your scraps into. If you have ever tried to wipe or corral the scraps or crumbs off your counter only to find half of it later on the floor then you already know how helpful this gadget could be around your home or RV kitchen.
This handy contraption is very simple to install and use. Aside from the scrap bowl that fits under the counter over a drawer, the Kitchen Art Scrap Trap comes with a scraper that fits in the front pocket of the bowl. This scraper makes it simple to usher crumbs and scraps into the bowl. It even has one end with brush bristles for getting those small crumbs.
We have found this RV kitchen gadget very useful for meals in our RV. Whether you are making campfire meals, grilling, or using the oven the scrap trap proves to be a valuable RV kitchen gadget accessory that may use more than you think. The Kitchen Art Scrap Trap saves counterpace, is lightweight, and easy to store. It can hold 2 quarts of crumbs and scraps if needed. We have been putting a plastic grocery bag inside it so to allow for easier clean up. It can be a chore to clean depending on what you have in it. After our initial test we have been purchasing these as gifts. At only $11 they make an inexpensive yet useful gift for friends and family.
