HIC's Fine Mesh Strainer is a perfect cooking tool for sifting, draining, straining, and sieving foods and ingredients before baking and cooking. The soft silicone handle won't slip, even when hands are wet. Plus, the helper handle sits securely on pots and pans, mixing bowls and other food preparation containers to free up both hands for other tasks, like measuring and pouring. Use it like a fine mesh sieve to remove seeds, skins, fibrous bulk and smaller bits for smooth consistencies and creamy textures in soups and sauces, pastes and purees. No more lumps! This food strainer is a helpful addition to kitchen accessories for rinsing legumes, rice, and grains before cooking, catching seeds and pulp while juicing fresh citrus, or draining and straining infusions of herbs or mulling spices. It doubles nicely as a sifter, too. Powdered ingredients like flour, crushed spices and confectioners' sugar or ground nut, oat and grain flours tend to settle and compact during packaging and shipping. HIC's Fine Mesh Strainer removes clumps from these ingredients and aerates them for even lighter, fluffier baked goods. The non reactive material is perfect for use with more acidic foods, like tomato and citrus. Made from 18/8 stainless steel and silicone, HIC's Fine Mesh Food Strainer will not retain tastes or odors and impart flavors on foods. Top-rack dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. Hangs for convenient storage.
