Pike’s Original Maine Garden Hod, new to Sur La Table, is the perfect accessory for collecting nearby produce. I can easily imagine keeping this basket  on my kitchen counter for nightly ventures to collect Sweet 100 tomatoes, basil and lots and lots of chard. The basket is made of food-grade PVC-coated wire mesh that allows you to wash and drain your veggies right in the hod -- either over your kitchen sink or outside with a garden hose.

The ends are made of pine wood and a steam-bent solid-oak handle provides for easy transportation. The adaptable basket also can be used as a picnic or knitting basket.
