A better Hawthorne
The OXO Steel Strainer ($7) is the best Hawthorne cocktail strainer I’ve ever seen. It dispenses with the useless handle, and features a nice little rubber pad to put your index finger on as you strain. It’s a joy to use.
I’ll still use a julep strainer for any cocktail with tons of floating herbs or fruit stuff, but this is also excellent for straining canned food instead of the previously reviewed Can Colander.12/28/18
