Our old pot strainer is over 40 years old and the plastic handle has been long gone, making it a challenge to pour out boiling liquids with burning yourself. I recently won a $10 Gift Card to ChefwareKits.com, so I ordered one of their Pot Strainer kits. Actually the kit is nothing more than the strainer, but the quality is really nice – a lot sturdier than the old strainer. I had a piece of Padauk lying around dying to become something – so it became a Pot Strainer Handle. This should make it a lot safer to pour boiling liquids from the pot :).

That’s pretty fancy and a heck of a lot better than any of the plastic handle jobs you get today. Also, a bonus for pleasing the little lady.

Great job on making that beautiful handle. It has very nice shape and way better than plastic ones.
