Overall User Rating: 5 Qt. Stainless Steel Footed Colander ( 4.5 stars from 17 reviews )
This is a very useful colander for a variety of tasks. Colanders of this size typically have very large holes which limits their use. This colander features holes that are small enough to strain smaller pastas and delicate berries while letting water flow out quickly and easily without pooling. It also can double as a steamer basket for a large stockpot.

I use this footed colander to wash and drain rice, and sometimes even as a fruit bowl for my bananas and apples that are always around the house. I like the chrome-like look to it, and the fact that it is well made.

Very happy with this colander. The size is good for smaller batches, the foot makes it very stable in the sink or on the counter, the handles stay cool when filled with hot food and the finish encourages me to hang it on the wall for storage and decor. Rugged without being heavy. Highly recommend.

This is a super item that we use daily and it has held up through the test of time and has no rust marks even after leaving in water for couple hours.

This colander is quite lightweight with large handles that make it easy to strain most things. As mentioned in another review however, the colander doesn't always drain completely. There are two reasons for this: 1: The holes are a little too small and so they will sometimes get blocked by bubbles or simply the surface tension of the water. 2: The base is just a touch raised and so a small band of water remains around the inside edges. However, the amount of water that I had remaining was small enough to where it didn't affect me at all. I was quite happy with this purchase especially at this price point.

A very nice well built colander. I love the foot as I don't have to worry so much about water contaminating my food from slow drainage. It hangs up nice which make it easily accessible.

The 5 quart stainless steel footed colander is a good size for home use. The price is an excellent buy compared to most kitchen shops.

This colander is a great size for draining a lot of pasta at once and is of good quality for the price. My only issue with it is that it never seems like all the water or liquid in the bottom of the colander drains out and have to swirl it around over the sink to try to get the rest out. I have used this colander in larger sizes when cooking at work and they seem to drain much better than this little guy.

The material of this colander is of very good quality. I've used it heavily for about a month now and it still looks amazing. The feet of the colander is also very nice and works well to prevent skidding.

Nice size stainless steel colander for small kitchen tasks. Its great to be able to pour hot items in over a larger kitchen bowl to strain and cool down. So much better and more sanitary than the plastic counter type products. It fits great in the dish washer and comes out shiney every time.

This is a nice Colander--it balances well, and it made of high quality steel that should hold up to heavy use and dishwashers. At times cleaning the bottom can take a bit of effort, but this is the nature of footed colanders in general, not this product in particular. I use the Chinese style purcahsed from this site more often because of the relative ease of cleaning.

The best colander I have ever used. The handles are great and the bottom base is a wonderful feature. This cleans well too, and the slots are the perfect size for pasta.

I bought various sizes and I like them all. The only caveat is to be aware that these colanders can rust so do wash them out immediately after each use. Patricia, Front Royal, VA

I'd much rather use a stainless colander for straining hot pasta. This is sturdy and easy to clean and also looks nice with all my other stainless cookware.
