This product far exceeded my expectation. It attaches to all my pots and pans with a strong enough grip to even allow you to drain a family sized pan of potatoes. Takes up so little room in the dishwasher and cupboard that it succeeds on every front. I liked it so much I took one back with me to my home in the UK
I bought this a few months ago and really didn't have high expectations. I thought it would just fall off under certain conditions, and I would be left with my meal in the sink. I was absolutely wrong.
I use this on small, medium and large pots. I even use it on cans to drain things like beans. It works perfectly on everything and it's a quick hand wash for me to clean up.
This strainer fits all of my pots and pans and can handle large volumes of food, including large, heavy pasta batches. I use this now instead of those over-sized colanders. It secures firmly and is wide enough that I can pour all of the water out without worry of anything tumbling out. I do use my tongs to unclip it from the pot as the water has poured over it and it can get a bit hot. I could wait 2 minutes and it would be cool enough to touch, but who's got time for that?
I needed something to add to the order to get free shipping and this is something that I saw in the previous catalogs that I wanted to buy the next time that I went in the store. When I went to the store the other day to buy the pans and this item, they were both out of stock.
Can you strain spaghetti? Does the spaghetti slide through the holes?

Best Answer:I just strained spaghetti the other day. No spaghetti slid through the holes. The clip holds tight to the pan or bowl and strains with the greatest of ease. And clean up is very easy. A great buy.
