Decent for the Price but Feels Very Cheap
on April 26, 2016
After years of using our favorite Oxo colander, it sadly broke and we decided to look on here for a replacement. To get the same thing we used to have we would've had to pay twice the price of this one and I also liked the idea of getting a stainless steel one as opposed to a hard plastic one so we decided to take our chances and purchase this colander.
I really like that this colander is very large and can hold a lot of pasta. It has two handles and a base so the bowl part of the colander sits off the counter. The diameter of the colander is 11 inches and it stands about five inches tall. We've only hand washed it and it seems to wash up well. As much as I like the size of it, it doesn't feel very durable. It feels very cheaply-made and like the handles will break off if we are even slightly rough with it, which definitely could happen considering my husband is like a bull in a china closet. Still, for the price it's good and works for what I need it to do. We've been using it for almost two months and I use it about once a week.
If you are in the market for a new stainless steel colander in this price point, it's a good option. If this one breaks, I will most likely pay the extra money to purchase the same Oxo one we used to have since that one lasted almost eight years.
