One 5-star verified reviewer said the strainer, which comes in multiple colors, is a "game changer". "Got this as a gift for my hubby, and it has been a game changer for us, especially for pasta! Next to crockpot liners this is the best invention. It makes for less dishes in the sink, easier drainage, simple cleaning, and so easy to use. It turned out to be an amazing gift I gave to both of us!"

Another shopper bought it as a joke - and ended up loving it. "It really works! I like that it is easy to use and does not come off when pouring. I bought it as a gag gift for the person that has everything. They liked it so much, I bought a second one for myself."

Many of those who've tried the clip-on strainer have used it on a whole variety of foods. As this shopper raved: "I've used this to strain pasta. Washed fruit in a bowl and strained without losing one piece. I've strained ground meat, boiled eggs, vegetables, etc. I love it!! Total game changer for me."
