No kitchenware collection is complete without at least one good strainer. Whether you use the skimmer for lifting fried food out of oil or for draining a pot of pasta, having several different kinds of these handy tools at your disposal will make cooking a much more pleasant task.
The Oxo strainer is a convenient tool for many different tasks. With a long handle, this fine-meshed stainless steel colander serves as both a draining device and as a scooper. Simply dip it into the pot and scoop up vegetables or noodles, then let them drain. It can also act as a long handled spoon which can be used to stir noodles or anything else, as it cooks.
A set of sieves, like those found in the Martha Stewart Collection, is the perfect gift for those who love to cook. Available in three different sizes, this set of sieves is designed to be nesting for easy storage, and they can be used for everything from dusting powdered sugar on cakes to catching the pips from a lemon; every kitchen needs a sieve set like this.
Having a variety of different sized pots on hand is essential for every day cooking. Choosing a porcelain enameled stockpot will not only look great when sitting on the top of the stove but with clever features like a lock-in-place strainer and glass lid for easy viewing, making pot after pot of deliciousness is easy. When finished cooking, simply tip the pot over a sink letting the water drain keeping the contents safely inside the pot.
A spider skimmer is another draining device that is essential in any kitchen, especially when deep-fat frying. With long bamboo handles and a cleverly woven stainless steel basket ideal for draining and skimming, this device can safely retrieve fried foods from hot oil without damaging the simmer itself.
