I was really excited to review the Fine Mesh Strainer because I had just been in the store looking to purchase one a few days before. So, when this product became available to review, I jumped on it.
What I received in the mail was a cheap, rusted, discolored mess.
I hadn’t even had a chance to use the strainer yet. One whole section looked like that: rusted, discolored, and pitted.
When I flipped it over, it was rusted as well.
In the actual strainer has flecks of what appear to be metal in it. Certainly not something that I would use with my food.
Look at the joint. I’m thinking that when water gets in there, it’s going to be damp and just continue to rust.
I can’t recommend this product at all. There’s no way that a flimsy, rusting strainer would touch my food. Had I seen this product in the store, I wouldn’t have purchased it.
I received an email from the seller today:

I was shocked to receive another strainer in the mail today after receiving a refund from the first strainer. Here are the pictures of what I found on this one. Rust, on the left picture, and dents and wires, on the right picture. I stand by my original post…Don’t buy this product!
