    The one and a half quart aluminum Chinese colander is no joke and they definitely come in handy. The nesting feature is also a bonus. Especially compared use to use against the plastic alternative. The size, weight, sustainability and strength are unmatched. Fits perfectly in any sink and can also stack for storage. They are resilient and clean very well.
    Great little colander for smaller amounts of items. I was using this to drain and rinse my cans of beans, however, the aluminum heats up too quickly when using our hot water. Now I use it for fruit expressly. It has there protruding bumps on the outside bottom to keep it from sitting flat in the sink. Mine came in with some dents but they didn't deter from use so no complaints there. Would be better if it had a hook for hanging.
    Good little colander - something right between a fine mesh strainer and a strainer with larger holes. It's good for washing beans or draining cans.
    I love this colander! It sits well in any sink and holds a good amount of ingredients. But what I really like about it is that there's enough holes on it that you don't have sitting water puddles in the bottom. Now I know why this item was on backorder! I highly recommend it!
    If youre looking for a durable and efficient strainer this is the one. It has a low profile which makes it more versatile. It is great for quickly blanching a lot of vegetables at one time making it easy to remove all the vegetables at the same time.
    This is a great 'metal' strainer. It has a low profile which is very useful. I also prefer the aluminum metal over plastic when pouring hot liquids through. I have also used it to wash japanese rice, and mostly the grains won't slip through.
    This strainer is great for fitting directly into a pot for safe straining!! Great size and easy to clean material!! Perfect for pasta and vegetables!!!
