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.

I have had this item less then 3 months and seldom use it. The enamel is chipping off from the inner center of the colander which makes it unusable to me. I was draining beans in it over the weekend when I noticed chips of enamel in my food. I was so distraught and had to throw away my food. I contacted the manufacturer and sent them e-mail asking them to replace the item. I haven't heard back from them. I wouldn't buy any more items from this manufacturer.

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

I am still using this colander after a few years, but my husband is nagging me to replace it. Like other reviews state, the enamel is chipping and the metal is rusting. This is only happening for me on the bottom of the colander, so it's not getting into the food and I'm still using it. However, I'm sure it's only a matter of time before the rest of it begins to chip and rust. Save your money, buy something else.

Wanted a sturdy colander that looked nice enough to leave out. It's a nice size and handles are helpful. This looked good at first but found that after a year or so the finish started peeling off. We've only hand washed it and don't use it every day. Expected it to wear better.

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.
