RSVP Endurance® Crescent Pot Strainer
I love this stainless steel pot strainer, but I love it for reasons unrelated to its advertised utility.
It’s perfect for making spaetzle. It makes a platform on which to put dough that you can then press through the holes — which are just the right size for spaetzle — and it can rest on the rim of the pot if your hand gets tired. It makes an excellent spoon rest on the edge of a pot; any drips go back into the pot.
Of course it can also be used as a strainer to drain water from a pot, and, because it has a short lip along the outside curve on both the top and bottom sides, it’s handy for either a right- or left-handed cook.
