Chinois Bouillon Strainer

Chefs use conical strainers like this one to make ultrasmooth soups and sauces as well as clear stocks. Add the pestle to help push denser ingredients through the mesh and the stand to stabilize it over smaller bowls and pots. Fine stainless-steel mesh strainer prevents lumps, seeds and skins from passing through. Long handle lets you lift it easily from pot to sink. Side tab rests on the rim of the pot or bowl for stability. Made in France.

Rusted in 2 months
January 21, 2012
I bought this strainer as the result of an online recommendation from a Greek Yogurt maker. I had been making Greek and regular yogurt for a few months and decided to make my life easier with this strainer despite the cost of $70.
It worked beautifully. But the solid rim began to rust in just a few months. I bought it in Sept. 2011 and returned it in Jan. 2012. The mesh, guard, and handle seem to be stainless steel but not the rim. Why the cheap-out? The paperwork it comes with says stainless steel and dishwasher safe. But it isn't. I have a Matfer Exoglass on order to replace this.
Pros: Easy to Use, Time-saver, Design
Cons: Quality, Inaccurate
