    I always use a strainer for noodles. I don’t consider myself cordinated enough to do the lid trick:)

    Strainer, unless I need to leave some of the liquid in.

    I use one of these most of the time!  Mine is bigger than this.

    Strainer always. I have tried towel/lid but always manage to hurt myself. Ouch.

    Just depends on how much I need to strain if I will use a strainer or just the pot and lid.

    I already burned half my hand off trying to pour hot watter from a tea kettle on time, so I’m all for the strainer lol

    But I wish I knew about other options!

    I had never even thought of doing it another way besides using a strainer! Good to know in case I’m ever stranded without one! Lol!

    I just pour the water out… very slowly and carefully.   I hate having an extra item to wash.
