... used this colander for a year now we still like it quite a bit
on March 17, 2016
After having used this colander for a year now we still like it quite a bit. Its size allows for a decent volume to be drained at a time.
The drain holes are a little on the larger side so losing a few peas here or maybe some small pasta shells there are a frequent occurrence, but the quantity lost is always very low, but still something to consider if you will be draining items/foods smaller than this.
The only other "gripe" I have about this colander is the fact that the base of it is completely solid all the way around which causes any drained liquid that comes from the sides instead of directly through the bottom to become trapped and collect around the base of the colander in our sink. If you have a large liquid to solid ratio, you may find yourself allowing the drained liquid from the sides to enter back into the colander if you are not paying attention. If the base had notches or holes cut into it, this would not be a problem.
Overall the colander is very functional and a good buy for us.
