This sieve was smaller than I anticipated – so make sure you measure 4 inches to ensure you are satisfied with the small size.
Husband said he did not feel we could use it for anything, but at least the quality is good.
Despite his review, I have been able to use it for sifting icing sugar over cookies (so much cleaner and easier than using my fingers!) and making pots of loose leaf David`s Tea.
It also makes a cute hat for the dogs!
It is pretty heavy for such a small sieve, and is made from stainless steel - so it should not lead to the same demise as our last sieve (rust).
The end of the handle has a hanging hoop for me to hang it inside the cupboard, and is comfortable to hold.
I did try to use a bit of strength to push the wire mush down to see how well it was attached to the base – and it did not break – a true sign of quality.
It is easy to clean with soap and water, and the handle does not get streaky when it has dried.
They are available in two sizes, I will definitely be looking into the larger size due to the overall quality of the 4 inch version.
*** I received this product at a reduced or no cost for my fair and fabulous review ***
Anyone who has used some less-than-amazing colanders in their time will know what a pain it can be to use a cheap colander that rusts, starts to fray, or is a nightmare to clean. So having used some of those in the past, I'm very happy to see that this colander from Orblue (the 4-inch one) is of great quality and is more than up to my expectations.
The first thing I really appreciated about this colander is the stainless steel. Because colanders can sometimes be difficult to wash or hard to dry, having one that will never rust is wonderful. On a related note, I found this colander to be very easy to clean compared to other sieves I've used. I can't say why this is, but I had no trouble with food getting caught in the mesh and being hard to wash out.
The mesh is very fine, which means there'll be no food slipping through, and it allows you to use this for sifting flour, which I used it for with ease. Because I'm using the smaller 4-inch colander, I find it most useful for smaller things like sifting flour or even straining rice.
The handle of this colander is easy to hold and stays cool when used near hot food. It also has a hook on the end, so anyone who hangs their kitchen utensils around the kitchen will be very happy about that.
- Great quality colander
- Stainless steel
- Very fine mesh
- Easy to clean
