I ordered this basket/strainer because I really wanted to use it to catch crawdads. I figured I could tie off to the lifting handles and lower it into the creek with some bait in the basket.The collapsible mesh should provide a flat surface to display the bait, but also become a wall to prevent escape when pulling the basket up and out.I ordered ONE of these, and this morning when it arrived there were TWO in the package, and ALSO a serated blade stainless steel kitchen knife. (See pic) A cheap knife, but will be great for our camp kitchen.There was no letter of explanation for either the extra basket or the knife, all of which is appreciated.This product was the best price I found for a Prime listing, being exactly as described, and the bonus stuff earns it 5 stars.
I make a lot of hard boiled eggs, and this product delivers. With this basket, I can gently lower eggs or pasta into a pot of boiling water without fear of cracking the eggs or splashing hot water on me. Highly recommended!
I love it
Handy for flash fry and blanching/boiling
I was skeptical, but it works perfect! Now one of my favorite kitchen tools!
