This review is from: OXO SteeL Cocktail Strainer (Kitchen)
I think what makes a 5-star strainer is one that's designed intelligently. Some strainers don't have tabs to keep it on top of the shaker, some have not enough holes, some have long handles (for some reason), some are flimsy, some have springs that stretch, some have cavities in the handle for water to sit... This strainer is the one to own and use. Ergonomic, thick metal, raised lip, smart design, dishwasher safe. Not snug in the metal half of my strainer, but doesn't need to be (it is snug in the glass half, if you prefer to pour from the glass). VERY hard to find in stores, I looked for a WHILE and could not fine ONE so I bought on Amazon and saved money off the retail price anyway. Oxo products are smart, cheap and stylish.

I wouldnt use the word cheap when describing OXO stuff, I would say affordable or inexpensive, since cheap makes them sound junky... they are far from that with the products. I know you werent saying they were a junky product.

You're right, I should have said "inexpensive" because I don't think OXO makes junk. Really durable stuff. It's been almost 6 years since I wrote this review, and I still use this same strainer. It's still just like new!
