Fine mesh for straining. Sturdy, stainless steel, double rod construction. Broad, soft handle. Dishwasher safe.
A required tool in the home of a seasoned cook, this strainer has a fine-grid mesh for draining the excess liquid from just about any food, including fruit, vegetables, and pasta. The wide stainless- steel brim and loop make it easy for the strainer to rest on almost any bowl or pot, and the double-rod construction makes it extra sturdy. And it comes with a hanging loop for convenient storage. The Good Grips line features durable, nonslip flexible handles on every product. Ergonomically designed to fit the palm comfortably and softly, the pressure-absorbing processed rubber handle puts less tension on the hands, while providing an outstanding grip. Made from the same material as dishwasher gaskets are constructed of, the handles are slip-proof, wet or dry, as well as dishwasher-safe. Good Grips products are moderately priced and have won the Tylenol/Arthritis Foundation Design Award. --Laurie Notaro

as it has a (natural?) toxic coating. But rinsing was a real mess--the tiny grains slipped through my pasta/rice strainer. And never mind trying a colander! The only thing that worked was my tiny (TINY!)
extra-fine tea strainer, so it would take several part-rinses to do a cup.
Quinoa is delicious in recipes and this ancient grain contains more protein than rice or other grains.
This new OXO strainer has extra fine mesh--and strong, won't dent. Good Oxo quality. A bit expensive for a strainer, but I know I'll use it for quinoa and anything else small--i.e., rinsing radish seeds before sprouting. One could rinse poppy seeds with this!
It's a generous size (I think it would hold 3-4 cups quinoa). Has a hook on one end so you csn hook it over a pot top edge and hold the rubber handle while you rinse. (Be sure to keep the pot empty of dirty water!)
Be sure to clean the strainer after rinsing, so any toxic coating or pesticites don't build up (need to read how--I think in hot soapy water?) so the toxic coating rinses off. (A tip: fill the pot with rinse water so it reaches the top of your strainer. You'll see something like suds gather on the top--the toxic stuff. (Maybe run the water slowly over the sieve and slide it off the top?).
Good product--just what I needed.
The handle is attached with two lengths of metal wire, one of which came detached. (They seem to be just glued on.) It still works with just one attached. We are very gentle with it now.
I was pleasantly surprised that the mesh never dented and there is no sign of oxidation.
In the long run, we will probably replace this with a plastic colander. We use a nut milk bag for our super fine straining needs.
I decided on the 6-inch size because I wanted to be able to scoop up spaetzle from boiling water, or skim the solids and foam that rise to the top of my broth. For these duties, the 6-inch size is perfect. It fits into my 3-quart saucepan with enough room to swirl it around to catch the goodies.
It's pretty deep, too, holding two cups of grain. In fact, if you need exactly two cups of grain, you could simply pour the grain straight into this strainer, up to the bottom of the steel rim. No need for a measuring cup!
After washing the strainer, I recommend hanging or standing it upright to dry. At first, I laid it flat on my drying rack, but the mesh didn't want to drain out very quickly. When I stood it up, the mesh drained out immediately. All stainless steel will rust if it's left wet for long enough, so make sure the mesh is dry before storing it.
As for storing this, know that it's a fairly large strainer, measuring 14 inches long and (of course) 6 inches across. I simply lay mine across my colander. Perfect solution for my small kitchen.
Cleaning this strainer could be a challenge if it becomes covered in batter or other thick, sticky ingredients (like cooked pasta.) Remember to soak items in COLD water before washing and that will help break the protein bonds. I used my potato scrubber to clean this strainer after a messy job. The mesh is so sturdy that it will stand up to real scrubbing!
One of my favorite things about this strainer is that it feels balanced when full. It doesn't have a tendency to tip over on its side in your hand like some other strainers do. Maybe that is because of the double rod construction, or perhaps it is the flatter handle grip (not round like the wooden ones.) Whatever the reason, it is a joy to use.
I like this strainer so much I may add the 8-inch version to my collection. Highly recommend!
It doesn't say in the description, but this is a double weave strainer. In other words, there are two layers of thin metal mesh to ensure even the smallest seeds and particles are caught in the net.
It has a traditional soft black rubber Oxo handle, too. This is important when using it over the sink as it keeps it from slipping around when the water hits it.
