    These are great for my juice bar. We wash a lot of fruit and vegetables on a daily basis so this is great for letting the water drain out quickly.
    I have used this colander just about everyday since it arrived. Whether I'm draining pasta or washing potatoes, this is always near and the good thing about it is that it is just the right size.
    love love love this colander! drains liquid faster and more efficient than my other plastic colander. i use it mainly to drain broccoli florets and the little pieces from trimming practically just drains out of the holes
    THE stainless steel construction of this colander is ideal for commercial settings but can also be used at home. They wash very easily in the dishwasher
    this is another great colander. we bought one of these long time ago and it lasted for ever. i bought the newer version of it this time and im not disappointing
    This Chinese colander is so convenient for rinsing large quantities of vegetables or fruit and larger pastas . The larger drain holes make draing the water so much quicker. Very high quality stainless steel and inexpensive as well.
    This is a very inexpensive large hold colander I like the large flat bottom on it it's very nice And well made it's got a good price on it to
    We love these colanders. This is the 5.5qt and we use it for almost every event. It is great for washing medium amounts of veggies and lettuce greens. The large holes allow water to pass through easily and make washing veggies a breeze. We also purchased the larger colander but use this size more often.
    I order the larger size first and had to come back for this size because they are that good!! Very impressive weight and hope for more sizes.
    These are the strainers I've been looking for all my life. Durable, yet extremely lightweight. Made of non-reactive, high quality stainless steel. And, without any pesky and unnecessary handles or feet soldered on (that would likely break down the road anyway!). In a clever display of design, there are some slight feet stamped into the bowl itself, so you still get the benefit of being up off the floor of the sink. I cook three pounds of pasta at a time and it fits perfectly in this strainer. Large holes let the water through quickly. I think I might start buying these as gifts for friends!
    I absolutely love this 5.5 at Chinese colander. It's a lot sturdier than I expected it to be and the holes are perfect in size to drain fruits and pasta, which is mainly what we use it for. I highly recommend this product!
    Beautiful looking 5 1/2 quart stainless steel Chinese calendar with large holes. Very well crafted and constructed. Nice price for such a great product. No doubt this will last us a long time.
    This is perfect for washing vegetables. I had no problems with water pooling on the bottom or cleaning the colander afterwards. It feels pretty solid so I'm hoping it holds up over time.
    Good quality colander. The shape and size lend it to nesting well with a lot of my other bowls, which helps with storage, and the size of the holes make it easy to clean. The only down side is that there are no feet or substantially raised parts on the bottom of the bowl so be careful when you rinse that the water has a place to go.
    Nice sturdy colander. I was hoping I could use it to strain spent vegetables when making stock. I was pleased to find that it fits perfectly over my largest stainless bowl, so it will be just right for my intended purpose.
    WEBstaurantStore has so many great products like this Chinese style stainless steel colander 5.5 qt size with the larger drain holes perfect for draining pasta or fruits and vegetables excellent price as well
    These are excellent colanders and hold a large amount of items. I like that there are a lot of holes for quick straining and they clean up easily.
    This is bigger than you think. We use if to rince fruit and it is small enough to fit in our little 3 bay sink.
    This colander with large holes is great for large items like veggies or fruits. I do wish that the holes were closer together though. I give it four stars.
    Excellent! This is a very versatile colander. It has stamped "feet" in the bottom, making it suitable to perform double-duty as a steamer basket. The holes are a large diameter, and there are many of them, allowing for very quick drainage. Its single-piece design makes cleanup very easy. Very good quality, and very highly recommended.
    Good size colander, I got two and have been using them every day. The bottom needs more holes to drain out properly. Will look into different sizes.
    We wouldn't make it through a prep shift without this colander. We use it to drain washed veggies, prepared ingredients, cooked food... you name it!
    I love this chinese colander because It fits in my small sink and doesn't stick out. It's perfect for draining my spaghetti in and the pasta doesn't get caught.
