    Was looking for a basic, stainless steel colander for washing fruits and this is exactly what we got. Handles are a nice bonus and it has held up well to use so far.

    Colander in the sink

    Perfect size. I love this colander for personal home use. it holds a very decent amount & isn't bulky or heavy at all. cleans up nice & is still shiny. So far mine has held up to many washings in and out of a dishwasher. the price point is perfect & i highly recommend!

    shown holding a pound or so of shrimp. Very nice size & quality! fits perfectly in my home sink & has worked great many times!

    This is a nice colander. It is sturdy and works as it is supposed to. The handles are attached nicely so I am not afraid of them falling off when I am in the middle of draining pasta.

    Can't go wrong with this it's a really good economically priced colander

    Great and lightweight strainer. Perfect when you have rougher or messier foods and don't want to ruin a nicer colander. Unfortunately there is not a wide enough range of sizes.

    Good build for a great price

    for the price, i expected something less sturdy, but the quality of this strainer is nice and while it is light, it holds up well and does the job it needs to do

    really great for pasta and greens

    A light weight colander that gets used a great deal in our bakery. We use it for lighter items, but it works great and isn't bulky.

    Makes rinsing fresh eggs a breeze!!

    Perfect strainer and high quality, great for rinsing strawberries or any small amount of something. I highly recommend these colanders in all sizes, they're a great deal

    This colander is really beautiful, and an excellent value. The only minor downside is that the holes at the bottom are all in the center, with no holes around the edge. Water pools there, when you tip the colander, the water then spills out. As long as you remember to tip it before moving it out of the sink, it's not an issue. I'd still purchase larger sizes in the future.

    Lightweight, functional colander.

    We use this for everything from beans to pasta. It's good for home or commercial use because of it's medium size, and ease of cleaning.

    well bottom of the item is not well build but generally its a good item , stainless steel will make a difference of course comparing to any other item

    from Aslan Khan LLC Posted on

    This Colander is heavy duty and is large enough to strain anything you can think of. I like that the holes are smaller so food does not fall through.

    This is a mini stainless steel colander. Good for pretty much any type of cleaning or straining jobs. We get much st of kitchen supplies from webstaurant store. This item is not an exception!

    from Queens pizzaria Posted on

    Great quality stainless, no signs of rust yet. And at a fantastic price! This is a good sized colander if you're cooking for 2-4 people.

    Posted on

    The material on this colander is really think and the colander dents easily. Also, the hole placement is weird. All the holes on the bottom are concentrated in the middle, so water gathers around the edges. All in all, it works fine, but I don't know how long it will last.

    Posted on

    I like this colander. The problem i have with it is that there are not enough holes at the bottom and sometimes the water gets stuck sitting at the bottom. Also it is a little to thin for my liking.

    Posted on

    I've been using this colander for a few months now. It does the job. Easy to clean and store. It is not a heavy stainless steel, feels light but so far good for daily use.

    This is a great product and I have been using this often and I enjoy using this. It is super easy to hold and strain.

    This is a fantastic, 5 Qt stainless steel colander quality made and very sturdy but light weight I'm going to purchase several more very soon

    This is a really nice stainless steel strainer. I like that it has a base, so that I feel as if my food isn't touching the bottom of the sink.

    Posted on

    Great size for small or large draining items. It is super strong and easy to hold with the two handles. It fits great inside my lazy Susan too.

    This is greT for washing fruits and vegetables, and also for straining pasta. Great price for a stainless steel construction. Happy to have found this

    A nice large colander that has many different uses. It has held up very well after continual use, and hasn't discolored or warped in the dishwasher yet

    Posted on

    We use this everyday in our kitchen. It does exactly what you want it to do. Has held up very well with usage everyday. If we need more we will be buying some more.

    from Toni's Depot Posted on

    This does what a colander should. Holes are small enough that nothing escapes, but large enough that I'm not left with watery noodles. The whole thing feels very durable for the price I paid.

    Excellent colander. Excellent price. Stainless steel is so much better because you don't need to worry about anything being too hot and melting plastic. Drains well. Works perfectly.

    Posted on

    This is a great colander. It feels very well built and is holding up nicely to a variety of tasks. I have had no problems with rusting. Very pleased.

    Posted on

    I am very happy with this colander. It is not too heavy, nor is it too light weight and flimsy, but just right for us!

    from Just like Home Posted on

    This is a decent colander , with a couple drawbacks. The bottom is just about dead flat, so even though there are holes water pools up around the bottom. Also, the holes are rather small, so washing veggies or draining pasta can take a moment. But this fits in my sink perfectly and gets tons of use.

    A heavy metal stainless steel colander that works like attended. Able to put hot item though the colander and the handles don't get hot so you are able to strain strain away,

    This colander has taken a beating and has held up extremely well. it's the perfect size for washing our roma tomatoes. It washes great in the dishwasher too!

    from Shaver Lake Pizza Posted on

    This colander has worked well, using only a couple times a week for the past 8 months. Today, one of the handles fell off which makes the product impossible to use. It does, however, clean well and has been effective for the past 8 months, it's possible I just got a bad example out of the lot.

    Posted on

    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.

    Posted on

    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.

    from GREEN ZONE BAR & GRILL Posted on

    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.

    Posted on

    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.

    Posted on

    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.

    from Contata Voluptates Posted on

    Perfect size to help drain different things. Fits perfect in the sinks. Easy to handle, store and wash. Perfect item for the cost. highly recommend

    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.

    Good quality colander, cleans easily. This is a better price than home goods stores in area. Purchased the larger colander as well. Would recommend to others.

    from church Posted on

    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.

    from Smith Brothers Posted on

    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.

    Posted on

    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.

    from JAM Vegan Bakery Posted on

    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.
