Product Description

Size: 8-Inch

Amazon.com

A required tool in the home of a seasoned cook, this strainer has a fine-grid mesh for draining the excess liquid from just about any food, including fruit, vegetables, and pasta. The wide stainless- steel brim and loop make it easy for the strainer to rest on almost any bowl or pot, and the double-rod construction makes it extra sturdy. And it comes with a hanging loop for convenient storage. The Good Grips line features durable, nonslip flexible handles on every product. Ergonomically designed to fit the palm comfortably and softly, the pressure-absorbing processed rubber handle puts less tension on the hands, while providing an outstanding grip. Made from the same material as dishwasher gaskets are constructed of, the handles are slip-proof, wet or dry, as well as dishwasher-safe. Good Grips products are moderately priced and have won the Tylenol/Arthritis Foundation Design Award. --Laurie Notaro

This is an absolutely perfect size. It is not so big that you won't find a place to store it, but large enough to hold a bunch of angel hair pasta that would slip right out of the little holes in a traditional colander. It also fits over the sink so that I can pour the pasta (or whatever I'm draining) right into it, water and all, and have the water drain into the sink.

It doesn't say in the description, but this is a double weave strainer. In other words, there are two layers of thin metal mesh to ensure even the smallest seeds and particles are caught in the net.

It has a traditional soft black rubber Oxo handle, too. This is important when using it over the sink as it keeps it from slipping around when the water hits it.

Nice!

A passionate home cook that has been honing her cooking skills for the last 25 years, concentrating on Italian food for the last 10 years, writes this review. My favorite cookbooks are "The Professional Chef" by the Culinary Institute and "Culinary Artistry. Cooking is my form of therapy. I purchased this product when I began using citrus juice in many of my meals. This product is very useful and has many more applications than just straining juice.

Pros:
1. Excellent for straining citrus juice to keep the seeds out of your foods
2. Fits well over the top of a blender jar
3. Hooks easily to the side of pans to keep if from slipping
4. Great for straining spent vegetables from sauces
5. Excellent for removing small pasta from boiling water
6. Handle stays cool so that you don't need a potholder
7. Nice flour sifter
8. Makes a nice yogurt strainer for making a healthy non-fat yogurt cheese (line the inside with a paper towel or a couple of layers of cheese cloth)

Cons:
1. Cleaning is a little tedious (I find it works best if you soak it in another vessel that is filled with hot soapy water and use a brush to remove the residual "gunk")

Overall, the concept is good and the product is useful and well made. I recommend this product to anyone that loves to cook.

I am a foodie and as such, I own quite a few strainers. This is the first Good Grips strainer I've purchased and although I love almost everything Oxo makes, I was still surprised at the size, quality and fineness of the mesh on this one.

Do your math, this is a HUGE strainer compared to most hand-held strainers, but the mesh is quite fine and yet sturdy at the same time.

It's without a doubt the best strainer I've purchased anywhere. I hung it on a hook because it's too big for my various utensil crocks, but I find myself reaching for it even for pasta, for which I'd normally use a colander.

Considering the 4 for 3 deal going on right now, it was a superb value, as well.

I intend to buy the smaller versions, as well, to replace my older strainers.

Oxo seems to make their products better and better all the time. I have yet to get a 'dud' from the Good Grips collection.

Size Name: 8-Inch
This strainer has a very fine mesh, as was noted by another reviewer, so I decided to try it. I was SO pleased to fine a utensil with a fine enough mesh to be able to wash and rinse quinoa, since it's a very tiny granular grain that slips through most other strainer screens. Previous to buying the Oxo strainer, I had resorted to lining my other mesh strainer with coffee filters, which worked, but was a real pain to get the grain off the filter. The mesh on this one also seems to be stiffer than some other models of strainers. I have had to discard several other strainers of a similar type, that have had the screen crumple and pull away from the framework, over the years. I am very happy with this item.

I originally bought this strainer to make baby food for my son, but I use it all the time for things that are smaller and don't necessitate a large colander. It is very sturdy and fits across one side of my double sink, leaving my hands free. It cleans in the dishwasher. Good product at a reasonable price.

I went to a big chain store that sold several varieties of look-alike strainers. I tested them all by pushing down firmly on the mesh, approximating the amount of pressure I would use if I was trying to get the last juices out of meats and veggies from a homemade stock. The OXO was the only one that held together. On every other strainer, the screen came off the rim.

I've been using this strainer regularly for a year. I am quite impressed by it. It is still in perfect shape. There is no rust nor discoloration. The wire mesh is still perfectly intact, smooth and round (unlike other strainers I've owned that are riddled with dimples). The handle has not bent one bit. The mesh has also been fine enough for all of my needs, without having to also use a cheesecloth as I did with other strainers.

The mesh is double which makes it very strong and the handle is comfortable and strong... It is great for small items that might go through the holes of another strainer. This is the best mesh strainer I have. It is small in size. I love it for tiny pasta, crushed pineapple, etc.
