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.

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.

Color Name: Orange
I couldn't resist buying this beautiful colander from Whole Foods. It seemed sturdy, high quality and stylish. I figured it would last me a long time, especially for the price. However, within a year the enamel on the bottom started to chip off. I'm not sure if it was caused by the dishwasher or not but that's how I first noticed it. The metal was dark and rusted underneath. I was really surprised. I used the colander often, maybe once every two weeks, but always took good care of it. I placed it in an empty sink, dumped food (pasta, boiled potatoes, etc) into it, emptied it out and immediately placed it in the dishwasher every time. After the dishwasher cleaned the dishes, it would go into the cupboard inside glass bowls where nothing could chip it. This should all be normal wear that the design should've taken in consideration.

Since the rust was on the bottom where the food didn't really go I continued using this colander as I searched for a new one. It took me for awhile because I wanted something pretty and metal but more long lasting. Then the enamel began to chip off of various places in the inside area where the food goes. Since I didn't want my food touching the rust, I finally decided to drop the aesthetic requirement for a new colander and bought OXO Good Grips 3-quart Stainless Steel Colander. (On Amazon the OXO is currently more expensive than the Calypso but that wasn't how it was when I purchased my two colanders but as long as the OXO lasts longer it's worth it. It's been two months so far and I haven't had a problem.)

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.

Great quality item with enough weight to it to keep your foods from tipping as you work your magic cuisine. I love that it sits in the sink for added stability. Thanks for a great item. Very useful

Matches perfect with the other Rachel Ray orange products. Good quality. It is a colander and it does its job just great. Beautiful finish. Would gladly purchase for a gift. But this orange one is mine.

Though I like this colander overall (it's sturdy and a good size), the paint does tend to fade in spots when you wash it in the dishwasher. And, you know, I'm just not going to bother to wash an everyday cooking tool like this by hand like it was fine china or something.
