Which type of strainer should I buy?
- If you’re looking to drain water from boiled vegetables or pasta, a large colander is preferable as it gives you the space to toss your veggies and allow the steam to evaporate.
- For baking, a fine mesh strainer or drum sieve is best as it allows you to properly aerate and sift lumps from flour or sugar.
- When rinsing salad, a salad spinner is most efficient at drying your leaves whilst avoiding bruising them. However, a fine mesh sieve is more versatile.
- For rinsing berries, a small colander is ideal
