A pot strainer with handle is a handy kitchen gadget that removes big chunks from food, such as potatoes and carrots, while allowing smaller pieces to pass through. Pot strainers with handles are especially useful when you have excess produce to can or freeze.

While pot strainers with handles are easy to use, they often come with a few drawbacks, such as requiring some assembly, or not having much of a strainer. That's why we've tested dozens of pot strainers with handles over the years, evaluating them for their ease of use, cleanup, and overall performance.

We evaluate pot strainers with handles for ease of use, including how easily they are to put together, how well they fit under the pot, and how strong the strainer is. We also evaluate pot strainers with handles for cleanup, including how easy it is to remove the strainer from the pot, and how easy the strainer is to clean.

Three size Asian strainer spoon ideal for small food, make it easy to find any food you want in a hot pot or soup. Good for Chinese restaurant, Beverage shop, buffet, home kitchen, and so on.

The Hot Pot Strainer was great for my home-cooked Chinese food. After using the Hot Pot Strainer, the broth of my soup was clear, and the shrimp and meat in the soup were cooked through. The strainer was easy to use, and the metal strainer had good strength. (I accidentally dropped the soup strainer in the soup, and it survived the fall without breaking.) The strainer was light and easy to store, and the handle was large enough that I didn't have to remove my hand from the pot to use it. The strainer had no problem with cleaning, and I was able to easily rinse the strainer with warm water and dish soap. The strainer also came with a pair of tongs, which wasn't included with my prior purchase of a mesh strainer. The tongs were handy, and I was glad to have them.

2 Pieces Pot Strainer Stainless Steel Moon Pot Strainer Colander Pasta Drainer with Handle Pasta Strainer Pan Pot Strainer with Recessed Hand Grips Suitable for Different Sizes up to 10 Inches

Boao 2 Pieces Pot Strainer Stainless Steel Moon Pot Strainer Colander Pasta Drainer with Handle Pasta Pan Strainer Pot Strainer with Recessed Hand Grips Suitable for Different Sizes up to 10 Inches

Double handle pot strainer: it measures approx. 13 inches/ 33 cm in length, 3.35 inches/ 8.5 cm in width, fits different pots and pans up to 10 inches diameter, nice designed with two large handles for safe and easy straining without a colander

The colander and moon pot strainer are made of plastic, which is not quite as sturdy as stainless steel, but it's much lighter than stainless steel and easier to hold. The colander has an oblique shape, which fits more pots and is easier to use than a straight colander, but the angled shape also means the colander isn't as tall, so some pots might still fall through. The pot strainer is tall enough to fit most pots, but it's a little too short to be practical for boiling stock, and it's also a bit too narrow. However, the colander is more versatile, and it's worth considering whether you'll mostly use the pot strainer or colander, or whether you need both. The colander is dishwasher safe, but the pot strainer isn't. It's easy to clean either one, though, as long as you don't soak either one. The colander is wide, so it's convenient for draining pasta, and the grips are recessed, so they don't stick up when you pour. The colander and pot strainer are sturdy enough that you can toss them in your dishwasher, and both pieces fully drained mine of water after washing.

However, this pan strainer does what it promises to do, so it's a good choice if you like it.
