Good colander, terrific idea, but not up to OXO's outstanding standards. The convertible feature works really well, and I enjoy the many options it affords me. But the colander itself doesn't have holes everywhere, leaving significant areas that can hold water, so you have to tip it this way and that in order to make sure your food is completely drained. The other annoyance I've found is that there's some kind of invisible channel in the underside of the handles that collects and holds water in the dishwasher, dumping a waterfall on your clean, dry dishes when you pick up the colander to put it away. This really bugs me.

Aside from the fact that the holes are too small and too few to actually drain any food effectively, the handles are very cheaply made; mine broke after about a week. Inside those black plastic pieces screwed into the bowl is nothing but a single, sharp rod of spring steel that is wedged up into some plastic cams on either side of the handle's hinges. These plastic cams cannot stand up to the pressure being exerted upon them by the spring and understandably shear right off with little provocation, leaving you with handles that flop all over the place. If it had cost $5 I probably wouldn't care, but $30 for a colander is a little pricey by any standard.

I attempted to contact Oxo's customer service department with this problem, and they simply told me to contact their customer service department. If this makes any sense to you, there might just be a job for you at Oxo headquarters in Texas. Duties include sending a lot of generic form letters in response to complaints you didn't read and never answering the phone.

For years, I'd struggled with heaving pots of boiling water to the sink and attempting to dump the contents into a colander, where the backwash of hot water would inevitably flood whatever I was cooking and end up splashing me in the process. Last year I ended up purchasing the Oxo convertible colander, which is a lifesaver (that, and buy a pasta pot). It has foldable legs that extend to fit over the edges of your sink, holding the colander in place so you can keep both hands on the pot of boiling water. The holes wrap around the sides and the bottom, so your contents drain evenly. When you're finished, the legs simply fold down and you can slide the colander onto a shelf for easy storage (it's also a great place to stash frequently used baking / cook's tools such as mini pastry rollers and tartlette pans). This is definitely one of the handiest, best-designed kitchen tools I own.

I Love this colandar. Yes, it has it done sides as the previous reviewer mentions, however, there are plus' too. First, it is quite large and takes up a lot of room in the dishwasher, therefore, I clean it manually. It is very easy to do and leaves a lot more room for other things in the dishwasher. The main thing I love is that it fits over the sink. When you use it this way you do not have any of the water in the sink backing up to soak the food if you have a lot of water. This is especially good for pasta, beans, etc. Also, if you often have a couple of things in the sink to be washed as I do, you can still rinse without having to wash up even the smallest item. If I need berries or lettuce to be washed I use the salad spinner or berry spinner. A handled sieve works great for just a few berries to be washed and drained.
It all depends on what you are looking for. This is especially good for draining hot water items. I often need more than one sieve for different things. The salad spinner is great but I don't put hot items in it and don't always want to wash it up for spaghetti when making the salad, etc. This along with the salad spinner and sieve are enough for me. I use to have more colandars but decided to downsize under the sink when we had a water purifier put it. This was the best one to keep for me.

Update: I have had this colendar for a couple of years and have not had any problem with the handles as others have reported.

I loved this colander for draining pasta but the handle broke off after a year, disappointing. I would choose something more durable.

Easy to use, easy to clean. The legs spring out easily to hang over a large sink. Large oblong design makes rinsing fruit and draining pasta a breeze.

Verified Purchase
For $25, I expected something that would last more than a year. Got this for Christmas last year, and one of the handles broke completely off a few weeks ago (October). Do yourself a favor and buy a different product.

Follow up: Two days after I posted this review, the other handle fell off. I won't be buying from this company again.

I removed the handles - easily done - which made this a perfect colander for me.

I place this item across my standard width sink, which keeps it raised well above the sink bottom.

The rubber ends ensure it doesn't move around as I pour a pot full of boiling pasta through it.

A few shakes then the pasta is ready to transfer into a large bowl. The rubber ends keep your hands cool and provide perfect grip.

It's easy to clean because there are just the right number and right-sized holes - not too small and not too many.

Without the handles, it stores easily (horizontally) into my cupboard space.

For me the most important benefit of this colander is that it sits atop my standard width sink.

I recommend this 100%!
