Ideal for straining stocks, sauces, juices, and even dry ingredients, this 12” China cap fine mesh strainer separates solid food particles from liquids or dry ingredients to make more consistent products. The 12" strainer has a long, loop handle that stays cool when straining hot stocks or sauces, and the conical shape makes it easy to strain chicken stock, a delicious tomato sauce, or au jus directly into storage containers or sauce pans. Its fine mesh design will even let you blanch or rinse fruits and vegetables or dust cakes, cookies or doughnuts with baker's or powdered sugar. Constructed of 18/8 stainless steel, the strong, durable China cap strainer holds its shape when straining, and it resists corrosion from acidic products such as citrus juice and tomato sauce. An essential piece of equipment for restaurants, caterers, and prep kitchens in all types of foodservice facilities, the strainer has a 6-Qt. capacity, and measures 12" in diameter by 21-7/8" in length.
