Comments: A conical strainer is a definite luxury – until you get one. Then you wonder how you got along without it.

This China cap is wonderful for straining soups, stocks, and sauces. You can also use it as a food mill for puréeing fruits and vegetables. It is especially useful during canning season.

A handle on the strainer allows it to rest on pots and large bowls. It can be hung from a pot rack, but we will not pretend that it doesn't take up a lot of space.

Made in Sweden, this strainer has been designed for restaurant use, but is perfect for the home kitchen, as well. It has a 25-year warranty. Can you think of anything else you have that comes with a 25-year warranty?
