This "Food Cubby" Will Keep Your Sides From Touching Each Other At Meal Times

Picky eaters who can't handle when their beans graze their chicken cutlet, raise a glass. This latest kitchen accessory is especially for you. The "Food Cubby" is a genius kitchen gadget for those who need to keep the contents on their plate compartmentalized.

You might remember having plates as a child that neatly organized sides from the main attraction. Mashed potatoes would sit plush in a mountain top to the top right of your mom's lasagna, which created a lake of tomato sauce. For some reason, as a kid, this might have bothered you. And for some reason, as an adult, you might not be over it. But as our plates became more ~dinnerware~ and plastic became ceramic, the plates with departments left our kitchens.

Grown ups, it turns out, would like those plate borders back. Thanks to the Food Cubby, you can keep all entities on your plate completely separate without having to fill your dish cupboard with those plastic plates for kids. The Food Cubby — which "puts a smile on your plate" — comes with two orange silicone 'smiles', or half-moons. And these half-moons keeps food in its place. You'll never have to worry about tomato sauce staining your mashed potatoes again, if that's what you're worried about. Picky eaters can cheers to that.

The Food Cubby compartments won't slide around your plate as you try to fork your pasta.
