Oven proof strainer

Will this come in handy? If I purchase one, am I being suckered into buying something simply because it's on sale? It looks heavy and doesn't seem that practical for using on an every day basis.

  1. I can't think of one use for an oven proof strainer.

    1. What, exactly, is an oven-proof strainer used for?

      1. Ditto - the only reason, frankly, that I looked at the post was b/c I couldn't think of why you would need one.

          I have asked friends about this and we have yet to find a single preparation technique or recipe that would require the use of a over proof strainer.
          I have a aluminum strainer, but that is only because I don't like plastic getting soft when you drain boiling water though it.
