Bellemain Stainless Steel Mesh Strainers Review #strainer12
I cook a lot. Even though it's just me and Mike now, there is a lot to be done in the kitchen. We like to make things like spaghetti, tacos, chili, etc. That's means straining and draining quite a bit. I had a flat-screen strainer and HATED it. Stuff would miss the container I use to catch the run-off. Several times, I've had grease go down the drain. Recently, I was given the opportunity to try a set of three (3) Bellemain Stainless Steel Mesh Strainers.
I am very impressed. These strainers are bowl shaped and come in three sizes: small, medium, and large. I have used them all for various purposes. They've met my every expectation. These strainers are sturdy (lightweight but strong), easy-to-clean, and fit together to take up less cabinet space.
Whether you're straining the leaves from a single cup of tea or sifting a cake's worth of flour, this versatile trio will handle just about any type or size of sieving job in the kitchen. Fine Mesh Works with Most Liquid and Dry Ingredients.
When it comes to large pieces, such as vegetables used in making stock, any old strainer will do. But what if you're rinsing tiny grains of quinoa ... straining raspberry seeds from your marmalade ... dusting confectioner's sugar onto a cake?
You need a finer mesh like the Bellemain's. Graduated Sizes Fit a Variety of Containers.
Get maximum straining efficiency by choosing the size that's right for the task at hand. The smallest (3-1/8") fits a large mug, perfect for pouring loose leaf teas through. The medium strainer (5-1/2") is great for washing grains, straining sauces and other small batch jobs. The large one (7-7/8") sifts flour, washes fruit and drains pasta.
The three sizes nest together for space-saving storage. Hanging/Support Loops Enjoy convenient, hands-free straining, thanks to the sturdy loop opposite the handle. It allows the strainer to rest on a bowl or pot while you juice lemons or break eggs into it.
his is especially helpful if the food you're straining is heavy or you don't have much hand strength.
When not in use, the loop can be used as a hanging hook. Built to Last a Lifetime, Guaranteed Bellemain Strainers are made of strong, dishwasher-safe stainless steel.
A solid rim band anchors the mesh as well as the handle and loop, so there are no worries about the pieces coming apart under pressure. You'll find endless uses for them, and they'll be there for you every time.
With a limited lifetime warranty, it's guaranteed.
If you, like me, love to cook -- these stainless steel mesh strainers will be the perfect fit for your kitchen.
