Homemade chicken stock is worth its weight in gold. But it can be a real pain, literally, to strain a big, heavy pot of stock. With all the bones and vegetables, you end up splattering a fair amount of that "gold" onto your counters and yourself. Not fun!

This "Better Way" tip is a keeper. If you've got a big pot with a pasta insert, you've got the equipment you need to save your back, prevent burns, and avoid making a mess in the kitchen.

Try out this tip for yourself making Tony Rosenfeld's Homemade Chicken Broth.

AuntLundy writes: I think it is much easier to just put the bowl and strainer in the sink. That way you can let the whole thing sit for awhile. Also it is easier to throw the strainer in the dishwasher than wash the pasta insert.
