    I bought 2 of them for my fod truck. They are solid enough for blanching veggie. Easy to wash with brush but not with steel wool.
    This is a nice small basket. We use it when there needs to be small items fried and don't want to use the bigger fryer. My only negative comment is that it does have a hook to sit on the edge of the pot with the hot oil
    This basket is very sturdy. When I saw it, I was surprised to note that the handle was a thick set of two pieces of metal. It makes it very sturdy, and this is also reflected in the quality of the wire mesh of the basket itself.
    I just use this as a fryer basket. And for that it works really well. Difficult to clean properly but most baskets like this are.
    i'm surprised how inexpensive this basket it. what a deal! it's very well constructed and works for lots of different things in the kitchen, from blanching to deep frying. such a good find
    I purchased the 8" Round Fine Mesh Culinary Basket for home use but its definitely restaurant quality. The price is very reasonable which makes this basket a great value. Definitely recommend!
    We've waited to write this review because we wanted to use this a lot to see how it has held up. We were initially a little skeptical given the price, and were worried that it might rust. We use this basket a lot for frying things in pots, as well as making small batches of pasta. It has held up very well, and we have not seen any evidence of any rusting. We hand wash and dry it, and it looks as good as the day we bought it.
    Perfect fry basket for frying items in a pot. We were using a skimmer but this is much easier. The quality is excellent so we will be buying more in larger sizes.
    I was worried that this was going to be a mediocre quality basket, boy was I wrong. Everything from the mesh on the basket to the handle is not only solid feeling but uses thick material for them. The handle remain relatively cool during frying sessions which is a nice surprise as well Due to the angle of the basket handle, you may need a pot size greater than or equal to 9" if it is a deep pot (5 and 1/2 inches tall). There are some dislikes about the basket which I was able to tell prior before purchase. The handle does get some grime in the corners due to the way the handle is constructed. The bottom portion of the basket has some sharp corners which I sanded down (I didn't want to scratch my pot/pan) Use a brush to properly the basket and the handle. For the price I paid, this gets 5 stars even with the dislikes. Truly blown away with the quality and materials used for this basket.
    I love using this whenever I'm cooking noodles. Especially ramen. Noodles go in the basket, the basket goes in water, then I can easily lift everything out when they're ready.
    8" Round Fine Mesh Culinary Basket if deep frying or boiling and you need to remove smaller things including items like rice or pasta this works perfect for such applications
    This is a pretty good basket. Sturdy. Much cheaper on webstaurant than at any of my local suppliers. Will fit any pot 10 inches and larger.
    Dedicated deepfryers take up too much space in a residential kitchen, so this basket serves as a great alternative -- just use in a 10 inch or larger dutch oven and the fine mesh helps keep your oil clean and reuseable.
