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.
