    I have used these for years and they are great but I will say one thing: as they get older the rivets may come loose. Replace the unit they are inexpensive! Don't lose a rivet in your food!

    Easy to clean and maintain. Works for large jobs (we use it for big batches of pasta and washing lettuce) and overall a standard kitchen tool.

    Had my boss purchase one of these for the learning kitchen I work in. So useful, so amazing for draining the pounds and pounds of pasta we make with the kids. A true game-changer. Sturdy, lightweight, perfect at what it does.

    Large and very heavy duty. Does not feel like i will bend under pressure which is a good thing. The raised base is good in that it does not sit directly on the sink or counter surface. Two handles make for easy movement even with hot items inside.

    This is a fantastic large colander. very sturdy and i was very excited to see it when it showed up in the mail. it is great for draining large amounts of potatoes

    This is great and easy to clean. It holds a lot of pasta or blanched vegetables. I find the water drains faster than others and does not hold much residual at the bottom.

    Colander is very large and great for draining most items. Wish the holes were a bit smaller for items such as orzo pasta, but effective for 99% of uses.

    This is a colossal colander! If you have a large enough sink, it's a great kitchen tool! Perfect for rinsing a bunch of apples at once!

    from knaebe's apple farm Posted on

    This is a very nice, large Colander. The only problem I had was that it arrived scratched up because when the order was packed they packed a pot inside of the colander and during shipping the pot really scratched the colander. I contacted Customer Service and sent them pictures of the damage and they promptly fixed the issue. I highly recommend Web Restaurant. They have great customer service.

    from R &J Catering Posted on

    This thing is great. It is huge. We use it for steaming greens in our steamer, as well as for washing and prepping vegetables. Love it.

    from Durham Co-op Market Posted on

    We received this in perfect condition, (no dents, scratches), and it provides us with the volume to drain large quantities of diced tomatoes for our salsas. Excellent value.

    from DORADO TACOS II LLC Posted on

    Big and durable enough for a huge pot of pasta without tipping over in the sink. The weight is perfect, and the handles make it super easy to carry around the kitchen. It's also easy to wash, just make sure to run the sponge around the holes a couple of times before rinsing.

    This is a very large colander so be careful when purchasing it. It easily holds 30 servings of pasta. You may want to know the measurement of your sink and the width of the colander before you buy this. The base is great but it is not useful if the colander is too wide to sit inside of the sink. For me I have too narrow a sink and so it just rests on the lip of the sink.

    from stonegate center Posted on

    This colander is great for my huge kitchen. I can drain 5 pounds of pasta at a time. The finish is nice, and doesn't break down with the use of the sanitizer.

    from Little Critters Early Learning Center Posted on

    Very large but it does fit in our 3 bay sink. Great for straining veggies and beans. Easy to clean, very durable, holds a lot.

    from Natural Contents Posted on

    Very large, very sturdy colander. Make sure to have enough room under the table - this colander will not disappoint you. First one arrived dented on the bottom, however it was replaced with no hassle. Great product, will last a long time.

    Lightweight - arrived with a dent but nothing that affects performance. Very nice for draining blanched veggies or pasta after cooking, the base is helpful for straining.

    from Mountain Oven, LLC Posted on

    What a sturdy colander. It's very large too, which works great in an industrial setting. Especially when draining large amounts of vegetables , pasta, or salad

    Honestly did not realize how BIG this colander is - this will do the job for any big straining needed. We will use for washing large produce batches before juicing as well. Great for holding multiple pounds of berries, peppers, etc.

    Pretty amazing to find this color in a mop bucket. Small things in life but it's also back with extreme durability. Casters roll smoothly and have no complaints

    Good product. Nice and sturdy construction...good size...solid handles. This is a good all-purpose, everyday use item to have in your kitchens. I hate the ones that are so light that they ding and dent after two uses, so this is a great mix of quality and price

    Have been needing a big colander for awhile for catering and banquets. This one works great, and is really cheap! the aluminum is little strange to the touch, but I have sensitive fingers from an injury. The price is worth a very small occasional discomfort.
