Customer Reviews


This strainer is top of the line! Super sturdy one-piece stainless steel construction leaves no room for breaking or splitting. Tons of strainer holes make it easy to use, and it has a hefty weight to it. Recommended.

You can't beat Vollrath quality. We replaced some other cheaper made skimmer with these after the others kept breaking where the skimmer connected to the handle

Joseph S. from The Orioles Club on 05/10/2017

This is the thickest metal I've ever seen on a strainer. There is no way this will ever break. Last strainer I will ever need to purchase for life.

Jason H. on 10/16/2016

Skimmer is the perfect size and is made of great quality! Excellent price and we saved BIG TIME from our regular supplier. As with all of our orders shipment was immediate. Thank you!

Have been using these on a daily basis since purchase and they remain durable. Very high quality and I would highly recommend to anyone interested in them

Jason B. on 03/19/2016

This is a beautiful, well made piece. Totally worth the money at the price point. I bought this to replace one that is a two-piece, which has seen a lot of use but the screws that attach the pieces become loose. This is more sanitary too, since there are no places that can accumulate buildup. There truly is a mirror finish which looks very nice, and hopefully remains over usage and cleaning. It is perfect for removing eggs from water for poached eggs.

Steven G. on 10/15/2015

I was looking for a large, heavy duty skimmer with a long handle for cooking with large pots and woks. I love it. It's very functional and well-built. The 6-inch skimmer blade is wide enough for my needs, and the handle is long enough for most tasks. The stainless steel mirror/sating finish combination is very visually attractive. Very nice product.

Victor S. from Ifoodblogger.Com on 06/18/2015

This is one of my favorite tools in our kitchen. I was more than happy to pay a few extra bucks to get one that was a solid piece. It's sturdy and works great. Best spider I've ever used.
