Quite possibly the perfect metal strainer. Designed and hand-crafted in Japan, these are the exact kind of stunning workhorse we love to reach for in the kitchen. Punch pressed holes are smaller and slicker than mesh (anyone who has let rice noodles sit for too long in a mesh strainer can appreciate this), perfectly balanced, with just the right slant to the sides, these are a dream for washing, straining, dusting, draining, processing, pickling, and anything else you can dream up. The corresponding sizes nest brilliantly together (of course). The wider 11" lip nests perfectly into the matching 10 3/4" stainless steel bowl..
About The Line: Alongside Eames and Saarinen, Japanese industrial designer Sori Yanagi has been counted among the most celebrated and influential design-minds of the past century. His iconic kitchen-ware series debuted in 1974 with a series of gorgeous, pared-down cutlery and has since expanded to include his beloved nesting bowls, strainers, pots, and pans. Easy to use and easy on the eyes, these pieces are the pinnacle of design-in-use.
