The Stainless Steel Colander arrived one day earlier and it is not a delicate one either. It definitly has muscle. Meaning. You don't have to baby it when washing it in the kitchen sink. Have you noticed how the other colanders that claim tto be stainless they tend to rust. So far i've been lucky. The colander has a round base ideal for placing it in the sink.
The best feature of this colander is that, the thing has holes and no elongated openings just holes and fettuccini,linguine,spaghetti and vermicelli won't go through the holes and there's no elongated openings.
Go on, Get one! "It'll do yourself good".

The right size, good handle to lift and hang from. I'd prefer more holes as it doesn't drain as quickly as I'd like, but I can control that. More than worth the price, though time will tell.

very cheap. product arrived with one of the handles bent and nearly broken off. it is only tack welded on, so it was not very secure in the first place. the whole thing was a very light weight product. it is made of stainless steel, but it was so thin, that it felt more like tin. very unhappy.

One month after purchase one of the handles broke off. Four months after purchase the other handle broke off. Colander works fine but don't count on having handles.

These products are sturdy in constuction. The 5 quart size is great for family size recipes. The 3 quart size has a handle that allows for ease of usage. It's stainless steel construction can withstand years of use. Both are great products that are value priced.

The handle of this colander came off after mone month use. It is not possible to put it back on. I would not recommend this colander. I can not see how to return it or complain.

I search high and low for a stainless steel colander that wouldn't rust - this is the one! Great size for a big pit of pasta, cleans up easily and no rust. I'm ordering the smaller one for fruit and smaller meals. Love it!

I saved a couple of bucks on this colander by purchasing through Amazon rather than buying a more well-known brand at the local Target. But this type of item is something you need to see and feel when you buy. The colander is flimsy and low-grade stainless steel. It's been streaked from the first time I washed it, and the handles have already bent even though I've only used it a few times. Not worth the money saved, or what I paid for it.

The quality just isn't here. This looks and feels cheap! I kept it, probably won't use it, it doesn't drain good at all! I certainly wouldn't recommend or buy it again!
