I bought it because of a segment on America's Test Kitchen where they say that this type of colander is their favorite: finely perforated metal, rather than plastic or mesh.

The strainer works really well. It is great for rice, Israeli couscous and angel hair and aborio pasta.

There are a couple issues I have:
1) The inside is smooth and easy to clean. The outside feels like a microplane and it's just shredding my sponges.
2) The base right should also have slots of holes, because otherwise the bottom fills in with water...or...if you put the colander over the drain, the ring blocks the water outside the ring from going down the drain and then the sink fills up. Probably not a big deal for people with nice new stainless steel sinks, but I've got an old stained ceramic sink. It's also the sink we use for rinsing the floor mop and paint brushes...I don't like food coming in contact with the sink, and that includes strained food soaking in sitting water in the sink.

This colander works just as advertised. Drains perfectly, all stainless steel, well designed, easy to clean. One note of clarification, however: the 12.9" width includes the handles, so the colander itself is actually 10" wide.

I have had this in my sink every single day since it showed up in the mail. It is the most useful piece of equipment I have and so easy to wash!
The basket is sturdy enough for even heavy things like potatoes but has small enough holes that angel hair pasta does not shimmy through.
It is a beautiful piece!

I chose this colander because I thought it was the one Cooks' Illustrated recommends (a commenter corrected me -- thanks!). I've had it for about six months now, but didn't start using it right away as I was in the middle of getting married and moving. By the time I did, it was too late to return it, or I certainly would have -- I wish I would have inspected it carefully in the first place.

PRO:
1) Yes, it drains exceptionally well, as others have described. In that way, it is far superior to any other colander I've had. Hence the two stars.

CONS:
1) Yes, the bottom stand traps water, which is annoying but not really a big deal. I put it halfway over the center drain in my sink, and that works well unless it slides to the middle when I pour pasta, etc., into it.

2) I'm not sure why others have described it as "sturdy." It's lighter than any other colander I've had -- though I don't suppose you want a colander to be heavy -- and the handles (and stand) are just pressed into the perforated metal of the bowl, not riveted or anything. They seem flimsy to me, and I expect they will snap off at some point, just hopefully not when I'm picking up a colander-full of hot pasta. As I recall, CI had trouble with the handles coming off in the dishwasher, so that's worth knowing (I always wash mine by hand).

3) The stand on mine was attached off-center, so the bowl part is always crooked -- also annoying, but again, not a big deal. But for the price, you would think they could get it straight.

4) Most irritatingly, mine has a double ring of light rust stains, about two inches wide, on the outside. It CAME that way.

I've had this now for about a month. One thing I noticed right away was it's stability in my dishpan and the lack of back splash when pouring boiling pasta into it. My old strainer was constantly burning me with back splash. This has almost none. I love it. Easy to store in a dutch oven and works as advertised. As far as durability time will tell but it seems well built.

Ok I love the tiny holes so that I don't worry about shaking the spaghetti out of the colander. The problem are the handles. While this is meant to sit in the sink and you don't "have" to hold it, at times I do "need" to. The handles are very thing and you have to brace a finger or two against the side of the colander where the hot food is in order to hold it upright. You can't just grasp the handle and hold it straight. So, I am disappointed in that aspect and would not purchase it again for this reason. Also, I think the bottom of the inside could be a little more rounded. The liquid tends to pool around the rather wide are the colander is attached to the base. So when I tip it to release the liquid, I risk losing some pasta if I have made a big batch. Using this for pasta was my main reason for purchasing it.

After my plastic colander wore out (over several years) I thought I would buy a durable metal one that wouldn't wear out. The handle came off after about 3 uses.

I was online researching stainless steel colanders because I wanted one that won't leach chemicals into my food. Well, it appears that not all "stainless steel" products are not created equal. If you read the "Product Details" section on the Amazon website, this particular brand (Tovolo) comes with a "toxicity warning", as mandated by the state of California in Proposition 65 (see Prop 65 note below). In other words, whatever goes into making this colander is a known carcinogen/toxin. This was not true for the rest of the pricier brands I checked. See for yourself. I wound up going with a more expensive colander without the warning because: (A) I don't want cacner or cancer-causing compounds constantly leaching into my food; and (B) I don't want to encourage shoddy, harmful manufacturing processes. Somewhere this little colander is produced in a plant that is spewing these toxins into the environment as the colanders manufactured. No thanks.

*California Proposition 65*

Attention California Residents:

California's Proposition 65 entitles California consumers to special warnings for products that contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm if those products expose consumers to such chemicals above certain threshold levels.
