While looking at this product, I came across other models that were larger. Based on some of the other reviews I decided to go with this model, and I was glad that I did.

It really is the perfect size for its intended purpose - to remove items that have been frying in oil, OR to remove pasta from boiling water. It does a great job for both.

The construction seems sturdy and well built, and I like the wooden handle because it stays cool to the touch.

This has been the best scoop for deep frying that I have ever owned. You wouldnt know it until you actually use it but it allows you to remove both large and small objects from the boiling oil before they burn and with minimul effort. It has held up well through use also.

Spider skimmers are larger than you think, but this one is the perfect size, fits into our smallest saucepan. A necessity for anyone who does a lot of boiling . . .

The spider strainer is wonderful for stir frying and deep frying. Provides excellent control for cooking and scooping items.

This tool is very well constructed. Bamboo is perfect material for the handle - it's durable, doesn't heat up, and is easy to clean.

Works great. Still going strong. A little pain to clean by hand cause the sponge will start to break on it. I don't recommend that you soak it (or anything wooden) as it will make it crack easier. But I recommend it and I'm glad I purchased it.

This is actually the second strainer I have owned from this brand. I only had to replace it because I lost the old one during a recent move. This is the perfect size for any deep fryer or if you fry on the stove. The wooden handle does not get hot once places in the oil unlike metal spider strainers. I would highly recommend this brand and model in particular.

This is my first spider. I compared different products in a brick and morter store and did not find a bamboo spider that looked like it would last. I wanted a bamboo handle because it wont transfer heat like a stainless handle. The handle is very nicely finished with no splintering. The basket is nicely woven and is securely fastened to the handle. I love it. The 5 in is just the right size to use in one of those popular small, round, deep fryers that doesn't come with a basket.
