The Spoon Hack To Keep Strainers Stable Over Bowls
A fine mesh strainer is a kitchen must-have as it helps complete many tasks like straining, draining, sifting, and dusting with ease. Unfortunately, when you're placing one over a bowl or pot to do its job, it can easily fall into your chosen container and make a mess in the process, but a special spoon hack just might solve that problem.
In a video posted to the Rachael Ray show website, Grant Melton, a former culinary producer for the show, shared a tip to keep strainers in place. With the handle of the strainer dangling on one side of the bowl, and the hook on the other, Melton slips the handle of a spoon through the hook opening so the handle is outside the bowl.
This trick helps distribute the weight of the strainer to keep it in place. Of course, if you are in the market for a new mesh strainer, you may want to consider one that has two hooks that are designed to fit right over the bowl's rim to keep it in place, but this spoon hack is worth keeping in your back pocket.
