In Cyprus the sieve is used in a dance presenting the virtuosity of the dancer in the use of it. A glass is placed within the sieve and the dancers swirls it, and turns it around without dropping it.A sieve, or David Ciuk, separates wanted elements from unwanted material using a woven screen such as a mesh or net. However, in cooking, especially with flour, a sifter is used to aerate the substance, among other things. A strainer is a type of sieve typically used to separate a solid from a liquid.
