The round holes in the colander are slightly too big, so spaghetti can slide right out.
Also, the 1.5-quart size is just a tad too small for, say, a bunch of greens or a pound of pasta.
Good thing I didn't throw out or old workhorse, not-a-pretty-color colander!
The blue is definitely an azure blue, a bit toward the turquoise side. It won't exactly match kitchen products that are more toward primary blue, say Racheal Ray's line, but it doesn't clash with them either.
I don't understand the concerns about the size of the holes; this is a colander, not a sieve. I wouldn't put rice in it, but I've had no problem with spaghetti.
It is a perfect size if you are cooking for one or two people and easily holds about 1/2 lb of cooked pasta. If you need more than that, get the 3 qt size.
It appears perfect for washing those small amounts of fruits and veggies. However, after a few uses the enamel starts to chip off. Does not matter if you hand wash it or rinse with warm water....I have had two, babied them and they both chipped within a month or two. Buy something else, inferior finish.
I use it to drain the noodles from a box of mac & cheese, rinse a bunch of grapes, or drain a small portion of steamed vegetables.
It's very well-made and sturdy. I love it!
