Customer Reviews


This China cap is durable! It’s design allows it to hold quite a lot of food and it even has a nifty tab on the end that hooks up to most sinks for easy use.

Tracy L. from New Cassel Retirement on 09/04/2021

This strainer is durable and sturdy. I will definitely have it for a long time, doesn't seem like it's gonna fall apart on me. The lip on the side makes it perfect

Ayden M. on 02/18/2021

This is the perfect strainer for large quantities of food. It's incredibly durable and great for use with a wooden chinois pestle to strain pastes.

Dean C. from Breadfish Taiyaki on 01/18/2021

Choice 12" Fine China Cap Strainer fits nicely in a 5G food grade pail / ale pale - in this video I used it to strain hot tea - making total of 5G for kombucha and saved me time from fishing out tea bags b4 pouring. nice long handle - and I can also place a finer strainer inside this funnel and use it that way. - happy with purchase so far.

Lori M. from Garrity Gardens on 07/03/2020

Nice strainer. I have the coarse as well and both really help make out BBQ sauces and salad dressings smoother. Have to be gentle to avoid denting them.

Matthew S. from The Village Butcher on 07/02/2019

The 12" Fine China Cap is great for straining stocks, especially in combination with a Chinois. It is best for removing large items, but the holes are a bit large for fine straining stocks or purees.

Adam S. on 03/25/2019

Easy to store. Easy to use. Easy to clean. Good price. Shiny. Pretty. Does its job. What more do you want?

Christopher E. on 11/10/2018

The 12" Fine China Cap Strainer is sturdy and versatile. It is great for cleaning fruits and vegetables. It is durable and easy to clean.

Sara H. on 10/13/2017

I use this china cap strainer every day and it works perfectly every time. It does not rust and holds alot of fruits and vegetables. It drains perfectly.

Susanne K. from NY PIZZA PIE LLC. on 06/28/2017

While I know it's not unique to this one, it always annoys me that the very bottom of the china cap doesn't have any perferation to get the last bit through. Other then that, I wish the handle was just a touch longer to make it more stable on top of our largest cambros.

Meryl H. from CSSC on 01/16/2017

we use this to pre strain the fryer oil when draining and cleaning the fryers. Works wekk for this and being all metal is very durable.

Christopher A. from Mesa Grande Taqueria on 12/15/2016

This is an ever useful kitchen tool that allows you to be hands free when straining by using the hook and handle to support the china cap over a bucket or in a sink.

Ronald S. from Homegrown Eats on 12/09/2016

Very durable, holds up over time. We use often, mainly for staining stocks and brines, and it has proved to be an effective tool. Recommended.

Rachelle B. on 12/06/2016

Excellent price for this very durable strainer. We use this for stock soup straining as well as fry oil cleaning. Sprays off nicely and fits inside standard dish machines.

Mike L. from Ana's Cafe LLC on 08/18/2016

This strainer is great because it is so fine that it can also be used as a sifter. I love products that serve more than one purpose.

Connie F. on 07/17/2016

Not just used for straining, but we also use it to filter the oil from our fryer. The long stem is perfect for not getting a hand burnt.

Aaron C. from Plan 9 Alehouse on 03/11/2016

Got this for straining spices after I'm done brewing large batches and it's great! It catches all of the tiny particles and is very heavy duty.

Luciana T. from 3 Leaf Tea on 01/15/2016

I use this all day and every day and it looks like its still brand new. Great Value price that should last for years to come

Tasty G. on 11/05/2015

We've been using this china cap strainer on almost a daily basis for about a year now. No signs of wear and tear so far and it was a great price.

Karen D. on 09/27/2015

Love this thing. Straining broth with a nice large conical strainer is the way to go. Mesh is perfect size for keeping meat bits and things out of the broth.

Michael P. from Mike's Mindful Plate on 04/06/2015

Very well made and very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who owns a restaurant. Your employees will thank you, they are very handy.

Andrea H. on 10/10/2014

This strainer is awesome! Perfect for straining our homemade chicken stock, and large capacity. Was much larger than expected. I would agree with another reviewer that this might not be considered a 'fine' strainer, but maybe a medium? Works perfect for our needs, but would definitely not be suitable for very fine straining.

Amber A. from That Kitchen Witch on 08/25/2014

This is the perfect size china cap for draining number 10 cans. it easily fit on our cambros or over the sink. Sturdy and well made

Jennifer W. from Bar Symon on 04/09/2014

Nice, sturdy product and it's holding up well to our regular use as part of our fryer cleaning process. Washes easy, does not corrode or rust.

Lee C. from October Catering on 03/20/2014

This strainer is a great buy and every kitchen needs one. We use our for a more fine straining in which we don't want alot of the pulp to go through.

Chris D. from Ckd Restaurants, Llc. Kitchen on 05/07/2013

I bought this thinking it was the buillion fine chinois strainer but this is good for straining solids out of stocks. Not for extra fine particles.

Daphne C. from Verite Catering on 04/10/2013

This strainer is labeled "Fine" but I would have labeled it "Course." I'm disappointed, as it's just not fine enough for the job I needed to filter.

Todd S. on 02/18/2013

This is an every day use for us because we are always making stock. This helps the straning process because we can attach it right to another pot.

Brandon M. on 01/27/2013

In any bakery or restaurant, a fine china cap strainer is an absolute necessity. It can be used to strain anything from ice cream bases to sauces.

Dorothy T. on 11/23/2012

This strainer works very well for straining broths or soups. Very pleased with the quality and makes a great addition to any kitchen that needs to have a good strainer.

Jeff B. on 12/07/2010
