Very good quality colander.

The paint starts to bubble and chip off with very mild wear.

We received our colander around Christmas time, and have used it dozens of times since. We love the style (just a little funky)and we love the fact that the design fits in our sink perfectly and keeps water from re-circulating through the pasta.
However, after just 3 months of use, we noticed that the paint (is it really enamel?) wore off in a bunch of spots, and rust has taken over where the paint used to be.
It's too late for a return, so I will try the company directly and post any results here.

This is painted metal, not enamel. 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.

This colander looks nice, but the quality is poor. I bought this to replace a similarly designed, different brand colander that lost its finish on the handles after 7 years. I've had this for six and a half months, and the at the inner bottom it has rusted under the purple finish, which is about to flake off. I mainly use it for draining pasta. I clean it in the dishwasher, but I have never left it in standing water. I would not buy this again.

Do NOT buy! After washing it once prior to use and than washing it the second time the paint started bubbling just above the base. Very disappointing. So instead of using it, I have it on top of my refrigerator "on display". Cost quite a bit to have only as it like 12 dollars to return and if I exchange it is not work the grief, gas not to mention my time is worth something.

This is super cute but the paint/coating is chipping and discolored after only a few uses...not so cute anymore. By the way, I also bought this in other colors/sizes and the same thing has happened, so it does not seem specific to this color.

I bought this mainly for the novelty factor for my daughter who loves purple! But was pleasantly surprised about the good quality of this product.

This is a very versitile collander. Heavy duty, sturdy metal and a nice bright color. Great for draining spaghetti or use as a fruit bowl.

Beautiful, sturdy, functional and fashionable! A high quality piece for anyone looking to add a dash of color to their kitchen (or in my case, just another purple gift for a purple lover).
