    We use it to dust our cakes with confectioner sugar. It's VERY small though, was expecting bigger (but the size advertised is correct). Good quality.

    We got this mesh strainer for straining small amounts of wheatgrass juice and other fruit juices. We intended to have it fit in a mason jar, which is barely is too big for. Can easily be used in several other size glasses, which is no problem. We get good use out of it.

    This small mesh strainer is great to shake powered sugar or cocoa powder on cakes, funnel cakes, or wherever you may need to shake something over. And it's just the right size.

    Posted on

    A fine small strainer, good for bar or small applications. The mesh will filter out most small to medium particulates but some small may remain. The handle attachment point is of some concern as it is only electrically welded.

    Filtering tea with stainless wire mesh strainer

    I love this little strainer! It's the perfect size for squeezing lemon juice into a tea cup, which is exactly the thing for which I needed it.

    from Paradise shaved ice Posted on

    This strainer is strong quality material I am using this for sprinkled the powder sugar. It’s good deep holding enough sugar and price was affordable.

    great little strainer for skimming the fat off of broth or straining sauces. Well made with the edges of the mesh well hidden under the metal over lay. will buy more in a few more sizes

    from Kristin's kitchen Posted on

    Great size for skimming

    I use this strainer behind the bar when I need to make sure smaller ingredients such as mint or pulp from Citrus juice needs to be removed. Easily washed by hand and made of stainless steel.

    Fine mesh strainer

    I use this fine mesh strainer whenever I make Matcha Green Tea. I've tried other strainers in the past and this one does the best job at sifting the fine Matcha Green Tea powder. It works great and the fine sifting prevents the tea powder from forming clumps when adding water.

    Great for Sifting Matcha Green Tea Powder!

    This is a great tool to use to strain citrus juices. I use it for making cocktails so I can incorporate freshly squeezed juices without pits or pulp.

    Captures all the pulp!

    This fine Winware mesh strainer can rest across a cooking pot easily to allow for thorough vegetable drainage. This culinary tool's diameter is 3 inches, and it is made of stainless steel.

    Posted on

    This 3 inch strainer can drain from its support handle-

    This is a fine mesh, but not ultra fine. If you're straining out something really small look for something different. Great for straining teas or loose herbal/spice mixtures, brines, etc. where you don't want the particulates.

    from Natural Ways Homestead Posted on

    The strainer is perfect for straining both regular and herbal teas. It fits nicely over a mug and the fine mesh stops most leaves. It won't strain out very fine dusts, but it isn't intended to, since if it did that, it couldn't' also be used to sift powders. The quality seems solid, and the price is very inexpensive, so I can definitely recommend the strainer from a "great value" perspective, as well.

    Versatile fine mesh strainer. Perfect for flour, powdered sugar, or other baking tasks. Also good for soup, cocktails, coffee or tea. Easy to clean, stainless steel, and very affordable.

    from E Lou Coffee Posted on


    This is a good small strainer that is a good option to have in the kitchen for anything from making drinks, to preparing food. Sturdy enough and holds up to repeated use and washing.

    Posted on

    This is a nice addition to any home or restaurant bar. It doesn't quite hold a full cocktail, but with a bit of finesse it gets the job done-and for the price, you really can't beat it.

    Posted on

    3" Fine Single Mesh Strainer. This is a great little strainer. I use it mostly for dusting baked goods with powdered sugar or cocoa powder and it gets the job done.

    from Sweet Gourmet Cafe Posted on

    This strainer is by far one of the best out there. It is super fine and better than most strainers out there. I love using this to strain particles from oil.

    This strainer is the perfect size for what I needed. It is well made and works wonderfully. I really love the pricing at webrestaurantstore.com. Ordering is a breeze!

    Posted on

    I use this single mesh strainer to double strain my shaken cocktails - paired with the 4-prong bar strainer also sold on this site, Great Value. I use it everyday, and its a workhorse, still as good as new.

    Posted on

    Great little strainer. Just the right size for the pastry department or to strain a small amount of finished sauce for the hot line. Goes over top of a quart to pint container or a small bain marie too!

    Posted on

    This mesh strainer was a little more delicate than I expected. It will do the job fine but I am concerned about its shelf life.

    Posted on

    Perfect strainer for dusting flour.

    I purchased the 3" Fine Single Mesh Strainer for home use. It works great for fine powders and liquids. The quality is great as well as the price. Definitely recommend!

    Posted on

    Good for small jobs like dusting a dessert with a fine powder without making the rest of the plate dirty, good presentation. We only use it for loose teas. It's done a great job keeping out chunks but really fine bits get through, no big deal of course.

    Posted on

    I love this strainer. Its good for straining liquids especially when you are making natural teas in the morning. The material is also good and sturdy.

    Posted on

    I was very surprised by the high quality of this strainer considering how reasonable the price is. This makes it easy to avoid getting seeds in your food when squeezing lemons or limes.

    Posted on

    Im making tea every morning from loose tea, this is very useful product that im using every morning when im poring my tea to my glass without tea leaves. Its good price

    Pastry staff loves this, great for straining their glazes or sauces. Presentation is a lot more vibrant with out specs of fruit on the plate.

    Fine mesh strainer with wire handle. Seems well made and holds up fine in the dishwasher. The mesh is very fine and should filter out most items.

    Posted on

    This is actually a very high quality product. We use it for dusting with confectioner's sugar, and well as for straining smaller amounts of liquids. It has been holding up very well, including many repeated trips through a dishwasher.

    from Saveur Creations Posted on

    This fine mesh strainer is awesome! I'm using this for powdered sugar! You can also use it to sprinkle flour on pan before baking cake or brownies!

    Best way to steep tea without worrying about the residual tea leaves in your cup. Very economical and practical. Must have if your making tea with fresh tea leaves and not from the bag.

    from Hanaro sushi Posted on

    This is a great small strainer. It's easy to use and perfect for dusting cookies and cakes with powdered sugar. It also works well for straining drinks.

    Posted on

    This has so many functions I had trouble trying to figure out what to use it for. Kitchen tools are like any other kind of tool. Without it your like yeah I don't need it but when you have it you find yourself using them more and more. You realize at some point the kitchen items you are now getting, well, it would be difficult to make the dishes your making now without them.

    Posted on

    Very cute and useful strainer. Can be used to sift a small amount of flour, powdered sugar, or even straining used grease. Construction is pretty good considering the price.

    Posted on

    this is a good strainer for straining tea or to skim your soup stocks or broth. it seems that it would last if washed properly

    Posted on

    This 3 inch strainer isn't too bad for the price it does the job it's good for sprinkling powdered sugar coco powder over desserts and also good for straining your teeth if you like to drink loose teas

    from Place to be Bistro Posted on

    I actually received this item broken. Webstaurantstore gave me credit for the broken item, so this is a review of the product and not Webstaurantstore. When I received it, the handle had broken from the strainer and I hadn't even removed it from the packaging. It looks like the handle was attached by two very weak welds. Needless to say, I opted for store credit and will be purchasing something different instead of taking another chance on this one.

    Posted on

    Thank you for your review, Kenneth! We are sorry this item arrived broken, we are glad you were able to receive store credit for this damaged item!

    So far, we've used this little strainer to powder sugar over muffins and it worked out great. The little hook makes for very easy storage alongside our other hanging kitchen tools.

    from Milam Street Coffeehouse & Bakery LLC Posted on

    A few special tools that I love. Standard small mesh strainer! I love having these in the kitchen so I can strain lemon juice or lime juice!

    Posted on

    Does the job intended. It strains small amounts of liquid. We use it to scoop out floaters in fryer. Not very durable and I think it will get crushed very soon in sink. Inexpensive so I guess it will be like a disposable product.

    from Creativa Posted on

    Great item great deal , I always use it for cocoa powder or confection sugar to decorate the cakes thank you so much for the fast shipping

    from Sedgwick deli and grocery store Posted on

    LOVE this mesh strainer. I've been wanting one for a while so that I could dust powdered sugar over my tarts and brownies and that price of this one was just right for me, an did works really great

    Posted on

    I love this mesh strainer. I bought different types and sizes of strainers, but I often find myself reach out to this tool most often. If you often make broth, this is a must tool for keeping the broth clear.

    Posted on

    This strainer does a great job capturing most small particles. 3" is the overall size of the straining cup so the mesh surface was a bit smaller than I expected. Great value, though!

    Posted on

    I like to use this fine mesh strainer behind our bar for cocktails. Lime and lemon juice pulp are too big to pass through the fine strainer.

    from Jack & Alice LLC. Posted on

    Love this for sifting and straining small amounts; gives you great control! It's got a heavy duty construction; I don't worry about wires breaking free with this one!

    from Petaljammies Cake & Pastry Posted on

    I use this strainer for sifting dry ingredients such as flour and baking soda. I have also used it for scooping things out of boiling water and hot grease. It is great for skimming jams and jellies. I would highly recommend to anyone that needs it for these purposes on a small scale.

    Inexpensive small stainless steel strainer that does what it's supposed to. I did take off two stars because the one I received came to me scuffed but I doubt that that would be a recurring issue with this product.

    Love this little strainer! It's small but strong, and the lip at the end combined with the flat handle allow it to rest over a pan or cup. Fantastic product for a great price!

    Posted on

    This fine mesh strainer is the perfect size when you are trying to dust your food with powdered sugar. It's small diameter makes it very precise to dust/sift over the exact area you want with less waste. Use a large strainer and you would get sugar and/or flour all over the place. Happy with this purchase.

    Posted on

    Great product, very well made and holds up just as long as any of its competitors product, can be used for a number of different items in a restaurant!!!
