We have a standing order @ The Oilerie-The Woodlands from a local business for 20-25 Gift baskets each month & their customers LOVE them!! Time to think outside the box!!

    It's not just for draining pasta , fruits & veggies!!

    Does the job, exactly as described. The small raised lip on the bottom elevates it in the sink to allow allow it to drain and not come into contact with the sink bottom. Holes are a little small and spaced a little too far from each other.

    Heavy stainless steel eight quart colander with sturdy handles is a must for every kitchen!! The easy to clean factor is a bonus and I highly recommend.

    Easy to rinse fresh spinach!!

    When this colander first arrived, it appeared larger than what I expected. It does hold a lot and works quite well. Some water tends to stay in the bottom due to the holes not being large enough to overcome surface tension. This is easily corrected when you shake it slightly or just rub your hand on the bottom holes (be careful if the water is very hot).

    This colander is a great 8 quart size, and I love the handles and base. It is made of relatively heavy duty stainless steel, and has a nice finish that cleans easily. Unfortunately, the way the base is constructed it does not allow for enough holes at the bottom of the colander so some liquid does pool in the base of the colander.

    I absolutely love this product! This 8 qt stainless steel colander with base is perfect for so many foods. It fits perfectly in sink with handles holding it up on the edge of sink.

    Great colander that is lightweight and fits in a smaller prep sink. The base is sturdy, making it easy to use. Handles make transferring the food simple.

    I like this colander. It's easily cleanable, and I've used it for a variety of foods. It's size and shape are user-friendly, and I'd buy this again!

    I researched a LOT of colanders before finding this one. So many of them are extremely expensive. We were wary that this could be as nice as it looked for such a low price. So we went to the physical Webstaurant store in Lancaster, and saw it for ourselves. Nice quality. Heavy for the price. Just as good as ones we saw priced at a higher amount or more in high-end kitchen stores. We felt like we got the deal of the century. It is a good size and works well. Easy to clean; does not hold onto leftover bits like other types of colanders do.

    I am extremely happy that i chose the 8 Qt colander. It is very versatile. The handles balance perfectly on the edges of my sink when i drain my veggies. I like to weight - not too heavy for lifting. Easy storing when you have a pot-rack.

    Great colander for the value. Perfect size for most of the things that I need to rinse. Lightweight yet still durable and looks nice. Overall good purchase

    from Grayson's Crepes Posted on

    What a great colander. It is heavy duty and looks great. I will not use aluminium products so I was happy to find stainless steel Like another reviewer said, this also fits between the sink and let's me easily strain pasta, beans, or whatever.

    It's hard to believe that this colander costs so little! It not only looks great, it's designed in a way that makes it easy to clean. As a bonus, the handles work to suspend the colander over a standard kitchen sink. Couldn't be happier with it.

    I highly recommend this colander! Its very easy to use.. Place it in the sink and pour the item in it and the rest is history. It's nice quality and easy to clean

    Great quality colander for the price. The stainless steel is high quality and does not exhibit any signs of rust or corrosion. Very well made product for this price point.

    from Pulse UltraLounge Posted on

    This colander is the perfect size for draining beans, pasta, or vegetables before cooking or storing these foods. The stainless steel makes for easy cleaning, and the handles help to store it within arm's reach. It also fits atop the sink nicely.

    This colander is very pretty and matches great with my kitchen. It's a good size to wash large amounts of fruits or vegetables. It fits inside the kitchen cabinet too.

    This does the job perfectly for us. It has held up well over the last couple of months being used every day. The only slight issue would be it doesn't seem to be held together very strongly on the bottom welds.

    from Toni's Depot Posted on

    WOW.. this 8 qt stainless steel footed colander is super sized. No more worrying about not having a large enough one for pasta anymore. It is made very strong. A must have every place you cook.

    Wish the holes were a bit bitter to strain things a bit better but for the price it gets the job done. Lightweight but seems durable.

    from 3 Leaf Tea Posted on

    This colander is a great tool to have for rinsing and daring many food products, it cleans up pretty good too, just make sure to clean the base good as food wants to hide here.

    from GREEN ZONE BAR & GRILL Posted on

    if you are looking to drain the water from something, look no further! the 8qt size is good for medium size kitchen jobs. its a bit thin but i don't have a problem with that.

    from ashlexdrei tradings /sweets by chef jhay Posted on

    This colander is huge, just what I need to prep my salads in a jar for my lunch for the week. Great for draining pasta too, I used to have a plastic one and always felt uneasy pouring boiling pasta water into it. This one works better.

    Very sturdy and good thick quality, easy to clean. We use this for draining greens and pasta. I really like that it's stainless steel and will not rust.

    from Ivy Bakery Posted on

    I just used this to wash and drain 10 lbs of potatoes for making latkes. It is very useful especially for large amounts of things to be washed and drained. I am very happy that it is somewhat heavy and sturdy in order to handle the weight of larger amounts.

    Posted on

    Very happy with this colander. The size is good for larger batches and excellent for home canning preparations, 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.

    Posted on

    Not the best made colander, but it sure is convenient and at an especially good price point so that you can have several on hand as needed to get the food prep tasks completed.

    Overall I'm happy with this 8qt footed colander. It fits in the kitchen sink to allow it to drain and it fits in the dishwasher without interfering with the spinny water things. I would like a couple extra holes near where the flat part of the bowl starts to curve up because the bowl can sometimes stay wet near the bottom while draining. If you're preping into pans with a drain pan then this isn't even an issue.

    Posted on

    Just large enough to rest on the edge of my divided residential kitchen sink. Personally, the size of the holes is just right. If they were larger, it would drain faster than the sink. The way this one works is perfect. I can drain something and walk away without fear of a back up Into the bottom of the colander.

    these are awesome for me a must have easy to hold light weight easy clean I use it for draining pasta and also to wash my fruits

    from sweets Posted on

    These work amazing when draining pasta or veggies. Perfect size to fit in the sink, the drain holes are just about the right size to drain the juices fast. Perfect for the price.

    I always use this colander for straining vegetables in my salad. The colander is rather large, and can hold quite a lot of loose lettuce with ease. It is not only light-weight but offers an aesthetically pleasing mirror-finish that never seems to dull!

    Very easy to clean, and very light. Its pretty durable and has a good price compared to regular stores for home kitchens. It can hold a lot too!

    The 8 qt. stainless steel footed colander is huge! The price was reasonable and the quality is good. The only thing I noticed was the base seemed a little loose while I was unpacking the product. Overall though I think it was a good buy.

    Easy to clean. Light and durable. I use it to wash and drain fruits and vegetables. I also used it to strain cooked rice. The handles and size makes it easy to place over the sink.

    Love the large size of this stainless colander, and the fact that it has a nice sturdy base is a real plus. The handles are useful and makes using it a breeze.

    from Smith Brothers Posted on

    These are good utilitarian colanders, they were a bit shallower and wider than I expected but I still love having a lot, especially good for washing greens.

    from Tannin Management Posted on

    I love these colanders! In order to save money we bought plastic ones and found ourselves replacing them only months later. These seem to hold up well and have a great capacity for our use.

    Posted on

    The thing I like the best about this colander is that it fits across my kitchen sink perfectly! However, I do agree with another reviewer that it could have more holes in the bottom of it for better draining.

    Bought three different sizes and each are very serviceable in the kitchen. I use them daily as we are pasta eaters, etc. Remember to clean after each use to preserve finish. Patricia, Front Royal, VA

    The 8qt colander is a great addition to any kitchen. The colander has a good finish on it and the handles are also handy making it easy to move with a full load.

    Posted on

    This size is big enough for most commercial kitchen jobs, and about the largest you'd ever need in the home kitchen. It looks great, and it's sturdy, but not too heavy. I'd give it five stars if it just had a few more holes--it drains a little slowly.
