@cliffordbeshers strainer? You know, for draining excess water from food or maybe tea leaves?
@cliffordbeshers You are all in the ballpark and there is really little more that is special. @odd is closest perhaps,with the french press. I drained some food, cactching th liquid in a glass container, and it ended upside down, somehow, so I was looking at the mesh through the bend in the round glass. Image to follow in the next post.
@cliffordbeshers Are we seeing the sieve through a transparent plastic or glass object that’s distorting the view a bit?
@fgtech I thought the lensing was pretty obvious, but most people don't seem to notice it.
@cliffordbeshers We have a couple of smaller strainers that have “stretches” in them from rough handling. That’s what I thought I was seeing until I caught your hints.
