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 4.5 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!

    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.

    Works great for letting my duck rest and let the blood drain off

    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.

    This is the 5.5qt colander with 2 heads of frisee. We also reviewed withe 12.75qt with the same 2 heads and this will give you an idea of size.

    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.

    Highly recommend for straining banana pepper seeds!!

    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.

    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!

    from batch bakehouse Posted on

    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.
