Restaurant Supply

I was in the local restaurant supply house today (looking for good containers for all of the soup and broth from the turkey), and noticed some good looking fry baskets that would probably make good 3/8" sifters....

They are really heavy duty and a great shape, too, so they would probably work. In fact, I may go back and get one myself.....after I finish with this turkey :-)))))

RE: Restaurant Supply

Hi Susan, Did you go to the restaurant supply stores in Colton? There are 4 or 5 of them over there. We went over there and looked at the used stuff in the back room of one of them. They had lots of those baskets, but we didn't know if the holes were a bit too large. The guy at the checkout counter suggested that he'd give us a great deal on them since we didn't care what they looked like. Linda

RE: Restaurant Supply

Nope, not Colton; but the grid on the ones I saw looked good. I made sieves with 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 and insect screening, and the 1/2 is definitely too big and bigger than the fry baskets I saw today. If I have time tomorrow or Wednesday I'll try to stop by with a measuring tape in hand. To my eye they looked just right for the 3/8, but I'm notoriously bad about spatial relations....
