This Chinois Mesh Sieve easily processes cooked ingredients into smoother sauces and soups with velvety textures and even consistencies for tastier results. No more lumps! Its 7-inch diameter allows ample room to process large amounts of ingredients quickly. Crafted from 18/8 stainless steel with fine-mesh, the chinois allows liquids to pass through easily while retaining skins, seeds, and lumps. Use this fine mesh sieve to remove seeds, skins and other fibrous bulk from pastes and purees. Its sturdy handle and solid frame with helper hook steadies the Chinois on the edge of pots and bowls for single handed use with less hand fatigue.
