Seiher counselor

Among the many utensils that may be missing in any kitchen, the belongs colander which is also offered as a punch in the trade. With it, the cooking water can be poured off noodles, rice or potatoes. Also for washing vegetables can be colander use.

On colander is not a sieve

On colander consists of a grass catcher, which has the shape of a bowl. The basket is provided with numerous holes through which liquids can flow. At the bottom of the basket feet are usually attached, with which the colander can be conveniently parked in the sink. As a result, chefs or cooks have both hands free and can pour even larger amounts of pasta or vegetables. At the edges there are two handles, with which the punch can be raised. Although the functions of the Seihers are similar to those of a normal household sieve, there are some differences. Sieves have no feet. They must be held with one hand or hung in a pot when in use. Therefore, a sieve has only one handle. The biggest difference to the colander is the size of the holes. A sieve is much finer mesh. As a result, even the smallest particles are held and only liquids can pass. The holes of the herder are much larger. As a result, it is also possible to discharge clouding of the cooking water and microparticles such as spices. A strainer is therefore more suitable for washing vegetables from the garden, as dirt particles or small insects are flushed through the holes.

Colanders made of different materials

Simple straps are made of plastic and are available in different colors. They are not as high quality as comparable stainless steel products. Also, the processing is not always perfect. For example, the holes are not always punched completely clean. If the breakdown is often used to pour off boiling liquids, the material suffers noticeably. Plastic strainer have only a limited lifetime. The nobler version of the Seihers is made of stainless steel. Noble punches are extremely dimensionally stable and, with proper care, look like new even after decades. A pretty modern variant are straps made of silicone. They have the advantage that they fold up. This allows them to be stowed in any drawer, which is an undeniable advantage in small kitchens.

In addition to the material size and number of holes play a role. The fewer holes there are, the longer it takes to pour out food. Some straighteners have holes only in the bottom, in other versions, slots are also incorporated in the side walls. Ultimately, this plays only a minor role for the function of the Seihers. It is also a matter of taste, whether the openings are round or incorporated as elongated slots. Some models are equipped with wooden handles, which are also not hot when pouring boiling water and can be handled well. Straps with stainless steel handles should be handled with gloves when straining hot liquids.

What to look for when buying

For normal kitchen use plastic strainer is usually sufficient, especially if it is used primarily for rinsing vegetables and fruit. If spaghetti, rice or vegetable dishes are often served on the table, it is worth purchasing a stainless steel strainer. Here are the products recommended by WMF, which are very durable and well-made. The WMF Seiher Gourmet with a diameter of 24 centimeters stands out in every kitchen due to its oval shape and elegant feet. Who has little space in the kitchen, is well served with the Colourworks foldable colander, which not only holds 2.8 liters, but is also available in green and other colors.
