These were purchased as a result of a new deep fryer purchase. Unfortunately, they are just a little too small to accommodate the oil capacity of the fryer. Purchasing three 1 1/2 quart containers gives me four 1/2 quarts storage to strain and store my 5 quart deep fryer oil. Could have bought an additional one but... Strainers work ok and are better than just wire mesh that I've seen on other products. Lids fit very snugly. The container has a pouring lip which is nice too. Overall construction and appearance is definitely a 5 star.
I needed a bacon strainer, and the last one I had was ceramic and slipped out of my hands. Imagine the clean up opportunity that this presented! I like the fact that stainless steel doesn't crumble just because I may have dropped it on the hard cement floor. And it actually looks good on my kitchen counter. It has a nice strainer for all the solid debris that needs to be removed. Overall, perfect as a bacon strainer.
We used old tin cans to catch oil & grease from frying, when I was little. My mom found this type of "grease-catcher" , when I was 9 - 10 years old. I didn't think I'd ever find one so pretty and functional. I'm pan-frying more and this surely is a much needed item. Definitely recommend
