The colander is attractive, and if used as a fruit bowl or only occasionally it's probably fine. But using it to cook with on a near-daily basis, it's gotten rusty and the enamel has worn off around many of the holes. The pattern of drainholes is also not 100% ideal (would work better if there were drainholes closer to the bottom on the sides).

I really love the size, shape, and weight of the colander. It is also a beautiful color, and it drains well. I do, however, have one complaint. The enamel tends to wear off at points where it is welded and then those spots rust. It happened the second day I had my first one and I had to get a replacement, it is starting to happen with the second one also. Thankfully, it is just at the bottom where no one can really see and I love it otherwise, so I will keep it.

I'm not going to go into how good it looks or well it works. All you need to know is that this ought to be called THE POWDER BLUE RUST BUCKET. No matter how well u dry it, it WILL rust after three months of routine use. After six months, there is more rust than blue. Do yourself a favor and save your money. I wish I could send it back but it's too late. I'm ordering a plastic one instead and recycling this one.

I purchased this colander to use as a fruit bowl on my counter. Like other reviewers have stated, I don't think it would hold up long if you used it for straining things after cooking. The nooks and crannies where the base meets the bowl would probably be too difficult to clean, and it seems like the color might wear off quickly if it was constantly washed. That said, it's a perfect accent piece. It's solid and sturdy, and the color is gorgeous and fresh. The 5 quart size is perfect to hold a large number of bananas and apples on the counter top.

As beautiful as this colander is, it's just not conducive to kitchen life. As decor or as a fruit bowl it may work just fine, but not if it gets anywhere near water. You can dry it off perfectly, but ultimately it will rust. The problem is the metal lip around the top. It holds water underneath and slowly leaks out and causes the colander to rust. The enamel coating (I should know this by now) also will not last. Mine started chipping, even though I hand washed it, within a couple of months. I haven't thrown it away yet because it is pretty, but I haven't used it in a while and it's only a matter of time before I toss it. If you're considering purchase it, I would honestly look elsewhere. A stainless steel or BPA free option would be much a better option.

I bought a larger size and this smaller one. I am glad I got both. More water than you'd like pool in the bottom. More holes along the bottom, maybe another row or two would push this to a 5 star rating.

I bought this to brighten up my kitchen and to use as a fruit bowl. The color is so pretty and it is the perfect size. Not sure if I will use it for its intended purpose as I like it as a decoration.

I'm a sucker for anything turquoise colored, so that's why I had to have this colander! My old one was gross and plastic, I wanted a nice classy looking colander that would last forever. It's gorgeous, as advertised. The only reason I took a star off the rating is that there was a dent in the edge of it, so it's not quite perfectly round. I was able to straighten it out mostly, but I think for the price you should send an undamaged product. I didn't want to wait to return it and get a new one, because I was making pasta that night and used it, so I'm keeping it! It was packaged very well, so I don't think it was damaged in transit, but I suppose it has to be considered a possibility. Either way, it's a great colander and it does exactly what it's supposed to and looks awesome while doing it!
