I agree with leland. you can seive out a whole lotta glaze in no time and
makes mixing glaze an all-round more pleasant experience.
i don't have any problems cleaning mine either. as leland says, the brushes
slide out and the seive pops out as well for easy cleaning. i take mine
outside and use the garden hose.

But also one the finest made pieces of equipment anywhere. Very heavy dut=
and built to last a lifetime. Brushes are replaceable. The whole thing =
very well thought out. I have no difficulty cleaning mine at all. The
three brushes slide out for easy cleaning. I consider the Talisman the
best thing since sliced bread if you are making several gallons of glaze =
a time. Love it. Wouldn't be without it. Good bang for buck in my
opinion. Not affiliated with Talisman.
Have to add my "ditto" to Leland's comments above. I can't remember when=
bought mine (it's the all aluminum one) but it was many, MANY years ago..=
probably 20 or more. It is still going stong in professional use. =
Occasionally I replace a screen....and a set of brushes. All of my glaze=
are done in 40 gallon garbage can sized lots. For heavy use like that it=
is a godsend. The only other tool that would compare for the same
throughput with somewhat equavilent labor savings is a vibratory screener=
....but those are a bit more costly and harder to find.
If you are screening 1000 gram batches....... save you money. But if you=
are cranking out the pots....... get one.
Oh yeah.... no affilliation either.
