Independence Day Series American Flag Print Family Matching Sets Review
KateNC "in NC": I got this for my chef in training daughter. She loves it and uses it all of the time. Well worth the money.
KewlDadiJ: I love this bad boy, good handle, good size drainage, and it sits across bowls or pots really well. Glad I purchased it and would recommend it again, in a minute.
Kim H.: If you are using this to rinse berries, or strain pasta, it works just fine. However, if you have to shake it for any length of time (for instance, when sifting flour and cornstarch together repeatedly), the handle is really uncomfortable to hold. It's the first disappointing OXO product I've bought.
Kimmy: I have been strainerless for a few years. I have somehow muddled through, but now that I have this awesome strainer, I don't see how I made it. Like most OXO products, this has a great grippy handle. The mesh is tight enough to catch even small chunks, and the strainer is large enough so I can balance it across my sink. Love it.
Kindle Customer: Frustrated with trying to wash small grains using my colander lined with cheesecloth, I ordered this mesh strainer. To my delight, this strainer exceeds my expectations!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!
