Zaru strainers

Strainers come in various materials, but in our kitchen bamboo strainers are most often used. In addition to efficient draining, they are lightweight, do not conduct heat (no burning of hands or food), feel soft to the touch, and do not make a clattering noise when stacked.

They need to be dried between use and appreciate an occasional day in the sun and boiling water shower for hygiene reasons. Like other bamboo products, zaru take on a darker tint over the years.
