Customer questions about this product

What's the difference between a riveted and a welded handle?
A riveted handle is connected by small metal pieces (called rivets) that are crushed between the handle and the pan body to attach them together. This type of handle is more common on copper and aluminum cookware.

For a handle to be welded, the metal must first be melted and then adhered to the pan body. This creates a strong bond that leaves little to no space in between, so bacteria and other food crumbs can’t collect and cause sanitation issues. Both are long lasting solutions for fry and sauce pan handles because they are durable and can withstand heat.

    pasta mesh pot strainer strainers days durable great handle high

    Smaller than anticipated, which is my fault as I hadn't read the specs very clearly. We don't like to use mesh when breading items, as we are a very high volume restaurant and the mesh breaks apart and can get into food. This is a good replacement because there are a lot of holes spaced throughout the strainer. Vollrath is a great company with high quality products so I imagine this will last awhile.

    I really like this strainer it works better then the other brand it has more holes and is able to drain faster then the other ones

    This guy is a companion to the other tapered pot. They go together. We use them for cooking pasta on the line. it seems durable and not a mesh on the will fall apart.

    The Vollrath pasta strainer is a great, durable, product. We use about 8 at our restaurant to quickly reboil al-dente pasta for most of our dishes in a large stock pot. It's much easier to use with the pan type handle rather than a vertical handle found in other pasta strainers. They're used consistently throughout 10 hour days, 363 days a year, and have not failed us yet in three years. 5 stars.

    I love this guy. It works so well. We use it for blanching vegetables and as a pasta basket. It performs well and fits into the 5.5 qt sauce pot perfectly.
