Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Definitely an upgrade from my old strainer! I have a Joyce Chen Strainer which I thought was very nice...until I got this one! This is similar in design, but the Chen one has the basket made from twisted wire, it is almost like miniature chicken wire. If you ever have run your hand over chicken wire, you know it is scratchy. The trouble I had with the scratchy surface was that things seemed to get stuck on it (such as having fragile noodles tear) and it was hard to clean (either you tore up your sponge, got your dish brush bristles stuck in it, or scratched your hand!)This one is made one long spiral of wire arranged concentrically so there are no sharp edges of wire and it is very smooth. Further, the wire on the other model is not as strong as the rings on this one, and it may get bent in your cupboard...not so with this design. Also, the handle on this one is smoother and is attached in a more professional way (the other model is just sort of staples.) The best part is that this one is cheaper than the other model, too!

These are wonderful tools for straining things right out of the pot (without having to dump your liquid into a colander, especially if you are doing things in batches.) If you are debating between the two, do yourself a favor and pick this one!
