The aqua color looks great--very true to the color pictured.
Vickie R. Siders
The product itself is really bright, with a nice thick coat of enamel.
L. Malmos
The paint had cracked and chipped, and rust had completely taken over.

I purchased this colander less than a year ago for my daughter's college apartment. I figured I couldn't go wrong - it was the right size, and it was attractive. Well, I traveled down to visit her this past weekend, and I was horrified to see that the colander was covered in rust! The paint had cracked and chipped, and rust had completely taken over. We threw it away immediately, and I am ordering her a Tovolo melamine colander (I have had mine for years, and I've had no problems with it). It worries me to think of what my daughter was ingesting! The thought of hot pasta sitting in rust and peeling paint, and then going right into her mouth, literally turns my stomach. This doesn't even deserve 1 star. It is a completely useless item. Amazon shouldn't even sell it.

This is painted metal, not enamel. As mentioned in another review, the paint starts to bubble and chip off with very mild wear. With all the worry about lead lately, I worry about using this painted (not enamel) cookware item.

When I picked up this product at While Foods after passing it be for the umpteenth time I was thrilled. It was bright, fun, sturdy, and did exactly what it was supposed to do. But after a year of very light use, in a mild environment (a dry cupboard in my Brooklyn apt.) about 25% of the enamel around the drainage holes had chipped off, and has rusted underneath. Despite my best efforts, I don't cook very often which means my colander was only being used a few times a month. Very, very disappointed. I can't imagine small enamel bits in your food is very healthy. But since I paid a good $25 for it I am trying to use it a while longer.

A beautiful colander that simply does not hold up. This colander rusts and chips with regular use.

Don't strain anything HOT or it will crack and then rust.
Not happy with this at all. I might buy more but it will only be used to rinse veggies and fruits and will hang for decoration on my pot rack, because that is about all its good for.
I also have a small yellow one, and I only use it to hold fruit on my counter so its held up good.

It was so beautiful to begin with that we hung it on the wall. But over the course of a year it continuously rusted. We painted it twice but gave up today and threw it in the trash. Bummer.

Both Target and Zak have potential replacements for less than this one cost. I'll try one of them.

I purchased two different sizes. The yellow one has held up just fine. The blue one is chipping the paint and rusting. Threw it out! Very disappointing.

This is just the cutest colander ever! Mine is a bit darker than the Turquoise picture shown, but not by much. It holds up well under hand washing (we dont have a dishwasher), and we use it CONSTANTLY! We also have a white one that I bought somewhere else a long time ago, and that one is still going strong as well!
