Helen’s Asian Kitchen stainless steel strainer features a 5-inch diameter stainless steel bowl that won't rust and is dishwasher safe. The bamboo handle is non-conductive so it does not transfer heat. Discover what cooks in the orient have known for centuries. The web-like design of the bowl quickly wicks away oils, water and broth. This means, when frying, the strainer quickly dissipates the oil away from the food leaving a crisp, crunchy coating. When pulling food out of boiling water or broth, the open, web shape leaves the liquid behind.
