I've used a bunch of chinois at work and own the Mafter and another cheaper non-name stainless one for home use. Comparing the cheaper one to the Matfer is like comparing a Yugo to a Rolls Royce. The Mafter feels so good in your hands you end up just looking for an excuse to use it.
I also found a mushroom-shaped pestle (at a local cookery store) that fits almost exactly into the bottom of the chinois (I've included a photo of it). If you can find one of these, buy it for it makes pressing the juice out of things super easy… and works better than the "normal" pestle in a lot of cases. The closest thing I can see on Amazon to my mushroom-shaped pestle is one called Rosle Wooden Conical Pestle which I don't own, so can't vouch for it.
This is a very fine strainer. Very little yogurt strains through with the whey. I turn one gallon of milk into yogurt. It takes filling this strainer up twice for the entire batch. I usually let it strain 1/4 of the way down which takes about 45-60 minutes if the yogurt is straight out of the warming oven. This produces approx 2.5-3 quarts of yogurt. Reducing it too much produces dry thick yogurt.
Straining bone broth is a breeze. It ensures all small bones are caught. Its large enough to strain the bones from a whole chicken.
-it's large, thus reducing your straining time
-handles high heat well
- the wires that protect the strainer work well
-It's large. It may be difficult to store depending on your kitchen.
- the size makes it really hard to strain by hanging in even a large stockpot. It does stand and lean while straining ok though.
It can be difficult to clean the fine mesh. I use a sink sprayer and then put it in the dishwasher.
-the price is a bit high
Overall this is a great purchase and I am extremely pleased with the product. I can't imagine making yogurt without it.
Two things to be aware of:
1. It's really tall. None of my 8 or 12qt stock pots can accommodate it, height-wise. (The bars around the tip of the cone touch the bottom of the pot long before the hooks around the strainer's rim could reach the rim of the pot.) Ditto with my largest mixing bowls. This means I'm pretty much hand-holding it (which can be tiring... and can be nearly impossible when I'm pouring from a large pot into it.)
2. There is a matching stand available from Matfer, but it's expensive (~$45 here on Amazon... for a simple piece of stainless steel), and the design is a little odd. (See my review of that product.)
