What is a Nut Milk Bag?

What is a Nut Milk Bag?  Well, when I stumbled upon these words in search engine, my ideas ran from practical to just plain unsavory.  Don't ask.  What you should ask is if you want one... and if so, does it work?

Here's what it looks like:

Visually--well, it's just not impressive.  My first question was a simple one: What the hell do you do with this thing that looks like a bunch of cheese cloth sewn together?  For an answer, I went to glowraw on Youtube:  This is something of a long (and not overly exciting, though quite educational) video.  The bag shows up at around the 4:10 mark:

Oh.  That answers that.  It's just a strainer...  At least we all got to learn how to make our own almond milk (which is quite yummer, by the way.  And her recipe is quite nice...).

While I have to admire the premise of the Nut Milk Bag, I'm not really sure I would use it.  I cook quite a bit, but I can't get past the design of the thing.  It looks like something I could make myself--and have in the past for straining various sauces.

But the general consensus is this is a pretty good product.  Most purchasers are quite happy with it; the Nut Milk Bag does what it's supposed to do.  The only complaints that I found involve price (ranging between $8 to $15, depending on where you buy) and the stitching.  In some cases the bag ripped upon just the second use.  While this could be user error, you can't discount that something breaking that soon after purchase has to make you wonder about the quality of the manufacturer.

But these were minority opinions in the midst of a plethora of positive statements.

So, if you don't want to devise your own Nut Milk Bag, this may be a good product for you.  You can find it at Amazon for just over $8.00, and due to its light weight, if you purchase it with another item you'll get free shipping.
