Chinois Strainer, Pestle & Stand
Sometimes the best tools are the no-fuss ones cooks have been using for years—like this beautiful strainer set. Each piece is designed in France and Italy to add richness and depth to your stews, sauces, and soups. The round beechwood pestle rotates smoothly inside the cone-shaped strainer (which is also large enough for a whisk or ladle) so you can get all the goodness out of veggies and herbs without a single particle sneaking in. That means so-smooth sauces and super-clear stocks. A long handle and hook make it a cinch to rest the strainer over your pot or mixing bowl.
