This 5.5 qt. Chinese colander is one kitchen supply you don't want to go without! It is ideal for draining all types of pasta, washing fruits and vegetables, and even straining soups and stews.

The stainless steel material of this colander will help prevent tarnishing and rusting, and you can be sure that it will stand up to heavy use.

Liquids and particulates can quickly drain from this colander through the abundance of 2 mm holes covering its bottom and sides, saving you valuable time while preparing pasta dishes and fruit salads. This item is perfect for commercial kitchens, catering businesses, hotels, and cafes, and is lightweight for ease in use and storage. The tapered sides and beaded edges of this colander ensure that your staff can grip it safely and securely while rinsing fresh berries and fruits. With holes small enough to strain rice, quinoa, and orzo without losing food in the process, this colander will quickly become an essential tool in your kitchen!

    colander size Colanders smaller clean easy pasta Great Nice perfect

    Great size, but poor drainage. No holes around bottom edge, so you can't just tilt it to drain. Need to jostle it pretty good to get water out of pasta. Easily holds a one pound box of pasta. Like the ease of cleaning. No parts for starches to stick.

    This is a really nice colander that is good and sturdy. Nice big size that can hold a lot. Clean up is easy too! Thank you!

    I do home made tofu from non-GMO organic soybaans. This is my "go-to" for separating the soy milk. Works perfectly every time. Easy to clean. Just the right size. Actually, I could make this a 1 word review: perfect!

    Great little colander. I love the fact that there are no handles or protrusions where gunk can build up. Smooth all around, and easy to clean. Good size holes for rinsing rice up to scrubbing and cleaning smaller amounts of vegetables.

    I threw out 4 colanders because of just this one Chinese colander, this is top high quality stainless steel and the holes are perfectly sized, not too big nor too small, awesome for spaghetti and smaller thinner pastas.

    This is the nicest colander we have ever owned, and that includes one that my grandmother brought from Europe fifty years ago. Works well, elegant, and functional.

    Purchased this to add to my colander collection. I ended up really liking it. It differs from the traditional colanders in that it doesn't have any protruding handles, or feet. The holes also seem to be smaller, but there are many more of them. It's got a very nice weight to it, and the base is molded so that it doesn't sit flush on a surface; there's a bit of room underneath the colander. I haven't noticed any discernible difference between using this or my other colanders, with the exception that, because the holes are so small on this one, you're far less likely to have food fall through while straining. As far as I can tell it's one piece, built strong, and has a beautiful stainless finish to it. Two thumbs up for this product.

    5 1/2 Qt. Chinese colander with small holes.

    This colander is lovely because it does not have a base and handles where food could get stuck. It is easy to clean and the width is perfect for salads, pasta, even rice. Good quality too.

    Good quality and great size colander. Works very well for washing berries and vegetables from my garden. Deep enough to also drain pasta and steamed vegetables.

    Colanders are perfect for draining pasta and such but this chinese colander will be the only one youll need! Nice size and plenty of holes makes straining things a breeze!

    I didn't really know how a Chinese Colander differed from a normal colander before buying this, but I am glad I did. It has a ton of holes and is much wider at the base than a normal colander. It is perfect for washing vegetables, but it can even be used when you want to drain boiling rice. Because it has no feet or anything else to break up the straight curves, it is very easy to clean. I am a home user, and I think this is great to bear with a smaller normal colander.
