OK, but not as fine as Matfer Bouillon Strainer
on March 1, 2012
I purchased this strainer through the Webstaurant store after seeing it on Amazon. The strainer is finer than a china cap but not as fine as the Matfer bouillon strainers that sells for $70+. When you hold this strainer up to the light, you can actually see tiny squares where the wires overlap each other. It's good for straining liquids with larger bits, but I wouldn't count on it to capture coffee grains or vanilla bean scrapings. And of course, you wouldn't be able to tell this from looking at the pictures. Overall, it's OK, but if you're looking for a strainer that will catch the tiniest grain from your sauces, stocks, etc, I think the Matfer Bourgeat bouillon strainer is the way to go.
