No more watching your spaghetti or rice slip through the holes. No slow or incompletely draining water. No worries about warping, scratching, rusting or tipping over. Whether you're boiling pasta, steaming vegetables or washing fruit, the Bellemain Stainless Steel Colander simply makes your life easier.
Micro Holes Keep Tiny Grains from Falling Through
Less than 1/16" in diameter, the Bellemain's perforations prevent even cooked rice and orzo from going down the drain. And while you might think water would drain more quickly if the holes were larger, actually the opposite is true.
Closely Configured Holes Drain Water Faster
Why does water go through mesh strainers so fast? Because there is less solid surface to slow it down. That's the principle behind the Bellemain's mesh-style perforations. The entire bowl, from the bottom to the rim, is perforated, so there's nowhere for water to get trapped.
Solid Ring Base Won't Tip Over
The problem with colanders that have separate feet is that if one foot lands in the sink drain, the whole bowl tips over. The Bellemain's base is one solid circle of stainless steel that keeps the colander safely level.
Dishwasher Safe, 18/10 Stainless Steel
Every part of the Bellemain is solid, practically indestructible stainless steel, so you can expect many years of trouble-free performance. When you've finished draining your cooked or washed food, just throw it in the dishwasher. What could be easier!
Top Customer Reviews
The first photo is uncooked Quinoa and as stated the holes are too large however I haven't tried any cooked Quinoa to drain.
Uncooked Rice did fall through. The second photo is of uncooked Barley and no problem there an Orzo had no issues either.
Update October 24, 2015: The more I use this colander, the more I love it. It's holding up well and is sturdy. I have a small kitchen, so I'm attaching a picture of how I store mine in on the side of my refrigerator.
1. Knowing that drained water would build up around the solid base and be unable to go down the sink drain, I just place the colander off to one side of the sink, so that water could reach the drain. The water which refused to go down the drain was a tough problem, but I kept working at it night and day and eventually came up with a simple solution. ;)
2. I've never had ANY problems with using colanders for rinsing rice... because colanders were not designed for rinsing rice. I use any ordinary saucepan for that. If you put a cup or two of rice in a saucepan and run water into it slowly, the rice miraculously remains in the bottom of the pan while the water rinses it and flows over the side. When I get done with this rinsing, I leave enough water in the pan to cover the rice a half-inch deep, and then I cook the rice. Yes, I know... it does sound complicated.
I'm very happy with this colander... and even happier that it didn't take me all afternoon to solve these overwhelming problems with it. I still have three hours to figure out how to unfold my dishtowel.
The colander is perfectly balanced, nice and deep, and fits in the dishwasher.
