A passionate home cook that has been honing her cooking skills for the last 25 years, concentrating on Italian food for the last 10 years, writes this review. My favorite cookbooks are 'The Professional Chef' by the Culinary Institute and 'Culinary Artistry. Cooking is my form of therapy. I purchased this product when I began using citrus juice in many of my meals. This product is very useful and has many more applications than just straining juice.Pros:1. Excellent for straining citrus juice to keep the seeds out of your foods2. Fits well over the top of a blender jar3. Hooks easily to the side of pans to keep if from slipping4. Great for straining spent vegetables from sauces5. Excellent for removing small pasta from boiling water6. Handle stays cool so that you don't need a potholder7. Nice flour sifter8.

This is an absolutely perfect size. It is not so big that you won't find a place to store it, but large enough to hold a bunch of angel hair pasta that would slip right out of the little holes in a traditional colander. It also fits over the sink so that I can pour the pasta (or whatever I'm draining) right into it, water and all, and have the water drain into the sink.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.Nice!

I am a foodie and as such, I own quite a few strainers. This is the first Good Grips strainer I've purchased and although I love almost everything Oxo makes, I was still surprised at the size, quality and fineness of the mesh on this one.Do your math, this is a HUGE strainer compared to most hand-held strainers, but the mesh is quite fine and yet sturdy at the same time.It's without a doubt the best strainer I've purchased anywhere. I hung it on a hook because it's too big for my various utensil crocks, but I find myself reaching for it even for pasta, for which I'd normally use a colander.Considering the 4 for 3 deal going on right now, it was a superb value, as well.I intend to buy the smaller versions, as well, to replace my older strainers.Oxo seems to make their products better and better all the time. I have yet to get a 'dud' from the Good Grips collection.
