The CIA Masters Collection 6-3/4-Inch Fine Mesh Strainer handles larger portions of sauces, gravies, and vegetables. A stress-free grip comes from the long-curved handle that has a channel for extra comfort. The support handle hooks over the sides of bowls and pans to keep the strainer stable while straining. Also works well for pureeing soft foods, or sifting flour. The professional 18/10 stainless steel double mesh construction strains out the smallest particles. The Culinary Institute of America Masters Collection of cookware, cutlery, bakeware, and culinary tools was designed with hands-on involvement and testing by the school's faculty of Certified Master Chefs.
