This is my third colander from this line. I also have:
Calypso Basics, 08703, 1-1/2 Quart powder coated Colander, Marina
(as well as a 1-quart version that is really too small to be useful for anything.)

There's a huge variation on the ratings of these colanders, and it seems to me there's a simple reason for this: You buy a pretty colander like this because you're a little bit silly and you like the color. If you want a colander that's going to last forever, buy a stainless steel colander.

The problem, I think, is heat. You shouldn't put enameled ANYTHING in a dishwasher, for example, because the enamel and the metal expand at different rates, and that leads to chipping. I would think that draining pasta would have less of an effect like this, but it might be similar, depending on how hot the water is. I use mine for rinsing vegetables and things like that, so I've never had the chipping problem. (My first one is now a year and a half old.)

These colanders have also impressed me in that I've dropped them from the place where I hang them (above my head) onto the very hard tile floor with no apparent damage.

So yeah, me, I'm silly and the color makes me happy, so I have these hanging next to a stainless steel colander which is the one I use for more serious things. But when I'm rinsing veggies, I grab these.

Oh, another thing to note: The holes on these are pretty good sized. I like that they drain better than my stainless steel colander. But some have complained that their spaghetti slips through, and yes, the holes are definitely big enough for that to happen.

Although very charming looking and available in fabulous colors,this colander does not wear well. After about 9 mos of normal family kitchen use, the bottom is rusting out and the paint is peeling off (my stainless steel colander, on the other hand that I've had for 5 plus years, is still going strong with only some minor dents).If you are wanting/expecting to have a colander that will last-this isn't the product for you.

We built this new house and also decided to upgrade my kitchen utensils. This colander is sturdily built, a good design, and easy to clean. The only down side is that it does take up shelf space because it cannot be nested with anything else because of its enamel surface. A caveat: I've had this for a number of months now and it has started to RUST around the bottom....

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.

Color Name: Red Verified Purchase
We purchased this to replace a 6 year old red colander that was dented. This Reston Lloyd colander looks great out of the box, but within 4 months it started to show signs of failure. The paint began to blister, first around the inside of the base then along the exterior of the colander. Within6 months the finish began to blister on the interior of the colander as well. In addition, this colander drains poorly because it has a flat bottom, not a rounded one. In short, it's ok if you don't intend to use it as a colander....

The handles of my previous enamel colander had broken so I bought this one to replace it. This one looks great and the handles seem very sturdy. The enamel finish is smooth, glossy, and durable. It's so pretty I almost hate using it for what it's designed for. If it's not being used I use it as a fruit bowl on my kitchen counter. Very happy with this purchase.

Beautiful splash of color in a very utilitarian kitchen tool. Bigger than I thought I was ordering but that's okay. It holds colorful fruit between uses.
