Product Description

Product Description

For draining or rinsing small fruits and vegetables, nothing can take the place of a strainer. The fine mesh allows liquids to pass through while solids remain behind.

Amazon.com

In homemade fruit sauces, jellies, and syrups, a stray seed or two can add a disappointing crunch. With an extra-fine mesh strainer, your hard work pays off beautifully, resulting in smooth, seed-free purées. This 6-inch strainer fits snugly over small bowls or pans and has a curved ring to stabilize it. Combining the comfortable Good Grips handle with dishwasher-safe stainless steel was a brilliant idea--this strainer will last a lifetime, and the handle has a hole for display on hanging racks. --Jill Lightner

Strainers are kitchen utensils that one needs at inopportune times. At the last minute, when I am hurrying to get all my dishes finished at the same time, I might put forget to add hot liquid to flour or cornstarch, for thickening, and instead add the dry ingredient directly to the gravy or sauce. Then I end up with a lumpy mess unless I have a strainer (or cheesecloth) on hand. This OXO strainer is 6 inches across, so it is large enough to strain a pan of gravy without overflowing. The mesh is a fine gauge, so the gravy will end up smooth. This strainer also works well for removing seeds and lumps from fruit sauces, even after pureeing them in a food mill, or electric mini-prep or blender.

Works as expected. Lools great too, but handle gently. The welds on mine broke, separating the strainer from the handle.

I love this strainer and have to say that it does a much better job of rinsing out water than my cuter tiny colander, which tended to collect water (sort of beside the point, right?). This is a sturdy feeling little guy and I expect it to last for quite some time. I find myself using it several times a day to drain berries, and it's also handy for straining home-made ice-cream (the initial custard step), sifting flour, dusting desserts with powdered sugar, rinsing rice, and for any small draining or straining needs. Highly recommended!

I bought this mainly to use for a pumpkin pie recipe. The recipe said to strain a mixture of pumpkin and yams through the mesh strainer. I will not lie, it was a pain. But the mesh strainer was durable and easy to grip. I laid it over a bowl, and it stayed steady while I strained the thick pumpkin mixture. I think I pushed it's abilities to the max, but the important thing is, it held up. Great purchase, I bought another one just to have on hand.

This is a great strainer for quinoa and is the perfect size. The only problem I have is that pieces of quinoa get stuck in the frame of the strainer, but they are fairly easy to get out with a little bit more water pressure.

I had the 8-inch which unfortunately I gave away after they stop making them anymore. The 8-in has lasted something close to 10 years and is in great condition, this one looks to be the same sturdy except smaller. Its perfect for me as I only cook for two so if you feed more than two at home, I suggest maybe the 6-inch Good Grips.

If you dont care about the extra small hassle from the size, this Steel Oxo strainer is the better option.

Yes, it is a strainer. As strainers go...it is very nice. Made very well. Comfortable to handle. Stores easily. The 6" diameter is a very nice size. Has many uses. Would certainly buy another one and do recommend it. How much can you say...it is a strainer.
