15-degree strainer / Strainer

15-degree strainer

When you’re pouring boiling water into your cup with a strainer, air flow is obstructed. The water usually cannot flow downward and even overflow, which may well lead to scald. We adjust filter surface of the strainer to 15 degree, and the mesh is replaced to structure of regular hexagon. In our design, the changes will create a better air passage.
