Yup. Standard equipment for making butter. I have figured out to put the strainer down into the butter/mash (in the rice cooker), and just draw the butter with a baster from the inside of the mesh. Add more water, heat a little longer, butter rises to the top, repeat as needed. No need to try to squeeze the liquids out of the mash this way (no cheesecloth, no squishing mash in the strainer.
