The strainer size (2-1/2", etc.) is measured straight across the "bowl" of the strainer, and includes some of the metal frame. The total length of the 2-1/2" strainer is 7-1/4"; the wire handle alone is 4". The total length of the 3-3/4" strainer is 8-3/4"; the wire handle alone is 4-1/4".
It is a fine strainer & small. It can sit on top of your coffee cup, or across a measuring cup (fits the smallest 1 cup -- up to the quart size). I strain tea and lemon/lime juice through it. It catches the smallest seeds and pulp.
The best way to describe this contraption is that it is a min-strainer, that is on a hinge (there are connections along the rim at the two places it touches the rest of the contraption). This means the strainer can be leaned or "rocked". There is a tall handle (highest point of the item) and a pan at the bottom to collect excess liquid (lowest part of the item).
I use this to dry small membranes (from a breast pump) after washing. For that purpose, I would like for the strainer to be able to be lifted away, but otherwise I am quite happy with this product!
Basic and made well. Does exactly what it is made for.
It is just right for average mugs and cups (which are around 2-3/4 to 3 inches inside diameter).
Properly balanced, sits solidly on mug without tipping and without needing to hold it while using.
Fineness of the screen is appropriate for whole & chopped tea leaves. Not fine enough for ground teas, but I don't think any 'screen' would be fine enough for that - those preparations require filters (or a desire to drink the fines).
Unlike some others have posted, it did not rust - really is all stainless.
An application note for others - this is a strainer, not an infuser. It is used to pour tea thru that you have infused loose in the pot/kettle (the best way to produce the most satisfactory/flavorful brew).
It will not satisfactorily produce a tea infusion if used simply to pour hot water thru loose tea placed in it nor if trying to immerse said loose tea into a brim-filled mug of hot water. There are different devices made for these methods of infusion.
I wouldn't recommend putting tea directly into the strainer and pouring hot water through, like you would with a coffee filter. It might work if you poured VERY slowly and VERY carefully. However, it's not really designed to be used that way. There are better tools for brewing individual cups of tea.
I ordered two, and one had a metal "thread" already coming undone. This was due to the poor shipping container. The items arrive squished, but still usable after re-shaping. They will be going into my travel bar bag that I use for offsite events.
The straining works just fine, but I don't forsee this product holding up more than a couple month behind a bar.
Do yourself a favor and purchase the RSVP brand 3" conical strainer.
