Product Description

The CIA Masters Collection 6.75" Fine Mesh Strainer handles larger portions of sauces, gravies, and vegetables. A stress-free grip comes from the long-curved handle that has a channel for extra comfort. The support handle hooks over the sides of bowls and pans to keep the strainer stable while straining. Also works well for puréeing soft foods, or sifting flour. The professional 18/10 stainless steel double mesh construction strains out the smallest particles. The Culinary Institute of America Masters Collection of cookware, cutlery, bakeware, and culinary tools was designed with hands-on involvement and testing by the school's faculty of Certified Master Chefs. Product sales benefit The Culinary Institute of America Scholarship Fund. Dishwasher safe.

I needed a fine strainer for rinsing quinoa and this one works great! It's fine enough that none of the quinoa falls through any holes, plus it's nice and sturdy.

Having learned long ago that I couldn't run with the big dogs, I am now learning it is difficult to keep up with puppies. Nevertheless, my interest in learning is undiminished.

After being introduced to Quinoa the other day, I found it necessary to learn about its rinsing, saponins, and about the inadequacy of normal strainers. Then came news - - thanks Jeannie - - that there are very-fine-mesh strainers available for rinsing Quinoa. For this old dog the Quinoa saga was like following a trail of enticing doggy treats.

Checking with amazon.com there was only one adequate-sized very-fine-mesh stainless-steel strainer. For rinsing Quinoa it got rave reviews. The only negatives were from buyers who believed it overpriced at $26.94

The overpriced criticism motivated me to check online. It would seem that researching fine-mesh strainers available for purchase would be relatively straightforward. Wrong!

The companies that make strainers are mostly mainland Chinese. Often their product descriptions do not include the type of metal. For fine-mesh strainers, chinois, and china caps descriptions, in which the type of metal is indicated, the metal is most often tin plated.

But wait a minute! I Googled fine-mesh strainers. What the hell are chinois and china caps? Well, it turns out that chinois and china caps, sometimes referred to as china cups, are all the same thing: cone-shaped fine-mesh screens for filtering bouillon. Chinois come in all sizes from a one-cup size to commercial sizes.

After an hour of online agitation, the best comparative price for a fine-mesh stainless steel strainer seemed to be $10 more than the Amazon price. I ended up purchasing: CIA Masters Collection 6-3/4-Inch Very Fine Mesh Strainer

I had been using a strainer I bought in a grocery store, probably 15 or 20 years ago, in an emergency situation. The strainer sucked then and it still sucked. Cooks magazine or maybe Cooks Country published an article about testing strainers and this one came out on top. I decided to treat myself to a new strainer! This one does not suck. It is well made and looks nice. It will probably last for the rest of my life and I am very happy with it.

I chose this strainer based on America's Test Kitchen ratings. I recently happened to see the TV segment showing how they tested the strainers, and was amused to see how they abused the contenders. I would never treat a piece of equipment that way! But this one held up well -- and I'm not surprised. It's very sturdy. When I make sorbets, I press the mixture HARD through this strainer. I do the same when I'm making soup with fibrous vegetables: after I use my hand blender, I press the soup through this to make sure to get out all the stringy fibers. I never feel that it's going to give out on me. The handle could be a little more comfortable, but it's not awful. I definitely recommend it.

Other reviews helped me purchase this product. I needed a larger fine mesh strainer to rinse quinoa. I wanted stainless steel without paying a big price. This product is great for the job and good quality. I'd buy it again.

This sieve is sturdy and of good quality. The mesh is very fine and suitable for straining stock and clear soups. Because it is stainless you can put it in the dishwasher too.

I was looking for a fine mesh strainer for awhile, using it primarily to rinse quinoa before cooking. This strainer looks great, and the mesh is fine enough to not let the granules get through. Its also sturdy enough to not 'dimple" with use. I wish I could afford all the CIA's kitchen tools and accessories because this is so impressive, it makes me want more!
