Our set of 3 professional grade extra fine mesh chinois style stainless steel conical strainers come in 3", 4" and 5.5" diameter round sizes, but they all contain the same extra fine mesh size netting. This means that all sizes can be used for similar tasks and food products. Your choice of strainer size will depend on the size and the amount food or material being used in it. Our conical shaped strainers have a deeper and finer mesh than standard shaped strainers would have. This allows them to be more effective when they are used to steep, percolate teas and spcies or for super smooth straining of purees, soups, sauces and juices.
Popular uses for each strainer size are listed below:
- 3" & 4" Strainer Sizes: This small size is ideal for sifting small amounts of dried ingredients like teas, spices and sugars.
