    Terrible quality. Uneven construction. Sharp edges. Rusted after first exposure to liquids. Total piece of trash. Stay away from this product and save your $.

    We appreciate your review, Stephen! We recommend you dry this skimmer immediately after washing to prevent rusting.

    Great wire skimmer. The skimmer is well made and worth the money very pleased with the quality. we also have a 9 inch one as well. Great buy.

    Perfect skimmers for deeper fryers, nice size and long handle for reaching. It cleans well and skims off burnt crumbs from the oil in the pan.

    Nice size for skimming smaller items out.

    this skimmer is very well constructed and very sturdy. it's great for getting larger items out of fryers or pots and the long handle makes it easy for you to keep your hands away from the heat.

    The 6" Round Mesh Skimmer is a great tool for the home kitchen. I use it to retrieve items out of the fry pot, out of boiling water, or as a handheld strainer over the sink. Be sure to wash and immediately dry this product or it will rust.

    A very solid feeling skimmer. The handle could be a bit better as it's not very ergonomic. Good for fishing out deep-fried foods. Overall a very good product for the price.

    The skimmer is perfect for frying in small pots and stores well. One can turn foods over quickly and easily after placing these same objects into a pot of hot oil.

    This 6" Mesh Skimmer is very well made and sturdy. It works out very well for the deep fryer, making it easy to scoop out runaway food items.

    Great skimmer! This thing is very sturdy with a nice long handle to keep your hand a safe distance from hot oil or water. Great price.

    I use this skimmer to grab macaroni out of the boiling pot without having to go through all the hassle of using a strainer/ colander. For this purpose it has worked well for me. The lateral reinforcing wires on the handle were noticeably out of square, and one of the thin wires of the skimming grid itself was bent, leading to the about 4-5 of the holes being twice as large as they should be. However, neither of these impaired the functionality of the skimmer. The welds and plating seem to be of high quality, and the construction is strong enough to handle much more weight than should ever be expected of such a tool. Also, this skimmer was much larger than I anticipated it to be. It may be in your best interest to chop the handle a little shorter, if you want to fit it in your cabinet drawers.

    the 6'' round mesh skimmer is the right size to cook with for fried oreos and twinkies will be ordering more and they have fast shipping

    We keep this hanging next to our fryers. Its wonderful for keeping it clean of broken or lost fries and chicken fingers. The long handle is perfect for keeping hands away.

    from Russ' Sub Shack Posted on

    I was actually pretty surprised at how well constructed this 6" Round Mesh Skimmer is. The handle is a good 13 inches or so, so you don't have to worry about getting too close to the oil. (For those of us who aren't keen on oil burns). I would highly recommend this skimmer!

    When I ordered this I did not pay attention to the handle length. When it arrived , my immediate response was that it would be too big for me to use. To my surprise, the long handle was just what I needed to deep fry jalapeno poppers, corn tortilla chips in my home kitchen. The size is perfect for fry bead. I could safely place small batches into hot oil and easily remove. The handle stayed cool. Good quality and solid.

    OK, it is not an intended use, but I use this - carefully- to work the deep fat fryer. When the basket is already in use elsewhere it's a lifesaver

    Good quality at an unbeatable price. My foodservice company sent us the same exact thing and charged us FOUR TIMES the price for the product. You should almost NEVER order supplies like this from your foodservice company because their prices are usually outrageous and I come on to Webstaurantstore and see the same thing for a fraction of the price! Save yourself the money and get this from here!

    good quality well made these 6" Round Mesh Skimmer im using to skim my steam vegetable to boiling pot easy to use easy to store great item

    from ashlexdrei tradings /sweets by chef jhay Posted on

    Wow!!! What a sturdy Mesh Skimmer. Was a bit surprised by the size. The handle is pretty long but will be great to use in my stock pot...which is what I purchased it for in the first place.

    I love this skimmer. It is very large and very well made. I use it primarily in my chinese cooking but any time I need a skimmer (and the pan is large enough!) I use this one.

    A great size for the home chef. A long handle and big basket make getting deep-fried foods out of the oil a breeze. Great for transferring blanched foods to an ice bath. I also use it for removing the large bones or veggies from a pot of stock before straining through a fine-mesh strainer. I find the mesh a little large for some "skimming" but it does work great for removing larger bits.

    The 6" is the perfect size for a home cook. It is great for frying or for removing pasta from it's cooking water (doing it that way rather than a colander helps me remember to save some all important starchy cooking water).

    from B-Sting's Snacks & Things Posted on

    I use this at home, I am not a professional. To be honest when I bought this I did not have a specific use in mind. I thought maybe it could be used to skim the fat off chicken soup/chicken stock. But the mesh is not fine enough for that. However, I have found so many other uses for this skimmer! When I am making small portions of macaroni for one of my kids, I use this instead of a colander to drain the pasta as it's smaller and easier to wash. I've drained berries and other small items after washing too--there are nearly endless uses for this item and for the price, just get one!

    This 6" round mesh skimmer is a great tool in our restaurant. It is used to remove items from our fryers and keep it clean of particles. It is very well constructed.

    from Havana Nights Café & Bakery Inc. Posted on

    I had initially purchased this skimmer for removing foamy impurities in stocks and soups, which it does very well. Lately, though, I've used this skimmer to quickly remove greens, potatoes, and various fruits from boiling water when I am blanching them. I've also used it to remove items from my deep fryer, but the 6" model may be a bit too large for that exclusive purpose.

    My wife loves this and uses it for all sorts of things in our kitchen. She fries a ton of stuff now and uses this to strain whatever it might be, very easy to use. The 6 inch head is quite sizable for a home kitchen and works well!

    I should have bought this skimmer when we first opened our doors, it is wonderful for getting the particles out of our fryer, picking up chicken and fish because it is so wide and easy to clean and store. Buy several!

    from CUP-O-FRIEZS Posted on

    This skimmer is as practical as it is inexpensive. Great for any kitchen. Professional quality as used in many restaurants. As a chef, I use this great tool as a skimmer, strainer, spatula ext. Can't see myself without one!

    Posted on

    This is a very well made skimmer. The handle is a bit longer than I anticipated, but for shallow work I just "choke up" on it. I used it the first time for boiling bagels and it worked like a charm.
