I'm such a germ-a-phobe. When I cook, I hate to lay my utensils down on the counter. I know it's clean, because I cleaned it, but I still feel too aware of all the germs that have gathered every second since the counter was last wiped down. Furthermore, I don't want to constantly wipe the counter after messy sauces and grease.
Elevate utensils are perfect! A set is $40. If they would just come in better colors, I would be completely sold.
