After a lot of searching I finally found an inexpensive fine mesh strainer I like. The mesh is rolled into the rim and held firmly in place. The handle is one piece that runs through the strainer and isn't spot welded on. It won't pop off and because it's stainless steel it won't discolor.
Did I mention that this is a fine mesh strainer? It's not so tightly woven that it's hard to clean but unlike other so called fine mesh coco strainers it will actually catch all your mint and basically all of your ice shards.
Also, I think it looks fantastic! More importantly though, I suppose, is that it's light and the basket is just the right size. I like that it's handle is properly proportioned and isn't so gigantic that it gets in my way!
The Mr. Slim Jigger by Sano Works in Japan is a poplular design and with good reason. The durable mirror finished exterior and gold band make this both classy and functional. On the interior of this 1oz / 2oz jigger there is a marking for 1.5 oz. It’s light, flips easily, and is comfortable to hold.
With its strong lines and sharp angles it reminds me of a smartly dressed gentleman but even though it’s a bit masculine I use it often!
The best thing about this Julep strainer from Yukiwa is that it's one piece. It's embarrassing when you're behind the bar and the inexpensive spot welded julep strainer you picked up falls apart, right? Don't let that happen to you! It fits very nicely on the mixing glasses we sell and like all things Yukiwa looks fantastic. It's made of Japanese 18/8 stainless steel and is manufactured in Niigata, Japan.
This version isn't plated like the gold version. It's 18/8 stainless steel so it’s fine in your standard high temperature dishwasher. Given the choice I still hand wash my tools but this one will stand the test of time.
These traditional Hawthorn strainers look gorgeous and are just as classy as everything else made by Yukiwa. The strainer is one piece Japanese 18/8 stainless steel except for the coil which comes off easily for cleaning. The two prongs fit nicely on both shaker tins and mixing glasses. The + shape hole pattern is simple and classy. Yukiwa is etched into the handle but I like that there isn’t a brand logo cut out of the metal.
I’ve personally had the silver and gold Yukiwa Hawthorne strainers for over two years now and they both still look like new after nightly use. That being said, I don’t run them through the dishwasher because they’re easy enough to clean by hand.
