We loved this, and we had been looking for the right colander to fit all of our needs...size (large)...small enough holes...etc. This is a great concept, but in under a month, after 4-5 uses, the material had cracked at the expandable seams, and it is almost unusable now (noodles can fall out of the cracks now...though veggies can still be washed in it).

This over-the-sink colander works very well. It's easy to adjust, drains well, is dishwasher safe and stores easily. The only suggestion I have for future models would be to make the extensible arms a little tighter. I haven't done it yet, but I'm just waiting to accidentally bump it and spill the contents into the sink. Otherwise recommended.

I needed a colander that had small enough holes to allow me to drain Asini de Pepe pasta (they are about the size of tapioca pearls once cooked). This one fit the bill (I checked one at the store for hole size, then bought it here as it was cheaper).

The collapsible feature and the expanding arms are both extremely handy. I have a small kitchen, so being able to flatten this out and stand it up against my pans, vertically, is great.

It's easy to clean (either by hand or by dishwasher, though it's so easy I usually just hand-wash it), seems solidly built (I wonder how long it will expand and collapse; guess we'll find out!), handles hot foods without a problem (and the handles don't conduct that heat to your hands!) and is just an all-around great little tool.

I love the fact this thing collapses. I was a little worried hot water would melt it, but it's still there and it seems to be okay. It's a great storage solution for people with small kitchens and it's easy to fit on MOST sinks.

My only issue is the fact it's hard to clean.

I love everything about this Colander, except the fact that it has started to rip at the seams just as shown in the video someone sent. I have had mine since June of 2009 so I got almost two years of use out of it, but I don't do a lot of cooking either so it might have broken sooner if I actually used it a lot. You will enjoy this when you use it but don't get too attached as it will not be with you for long.

i love this colander. i have had one for about two years and it is so convenient that when i got a second home, i had to get another one. it streches to hang on any sized sink, so what is being strained does not sit in the dirty sink water, and it folds nicely to fit in my cabinet along side the pots and pans. it is sturdy and easy to use.

I love this colander. I've had it for about 2 months now and use it 2-3 times a week. I store it folded in a drawer. I usually hand-wash it, and leave it to drip dry overnight, and follow up with a dish towel before putting it away. Personally, I wouldn't trust the plastic in the dishwasher; I could inagine the folding plastic part might harden or crack over time.

Because of this, I use mine exclusively for washing fruits & veggies over the sink, next to my chopping board. I think I used it once in the beginning for straining pasta, but was uneasy about all the heat/hot food & plastic bits.

I haven't noticed anything coming apart yet, but will be keeping an eye out for it.

I just had to stop in and leave a review on this product. I have had this exact one for a little over 6 years now and I love it. I cook a lot of pasta and I seem to always be using this strainer.
I have quite a few strainers in my home. I have them in all different shapes and sizes. I really love that this one is collapsible, the sides slide in and it stores away nicely. It really doesn't take up that much room and I need all the room that I can have.
Considering all the use and abuse I have given this thing over the years I am surprised that it hasn't fallen all to pieces before now, That's why I am now looking at ordering this item again. Mine has over all these years finally got a hole in the top corner. It still works great because the hole is so high up but I still am wanting a new one.
Really I didn't expect it to have lasted this long. This is a great product overall. It functions great. As I have stated it will last you a very long time. I just thought I needed to take the time out and give a good review to a great product. Well Done
Yep, I PAID FULL PRICE. This is MY OPINION good or bad. I am not affiliated with anyone but me. I’m AMZ Prime and I hope I helped you come to an easier decision.
Simply, a thumbs up below helps me keep on helping you!
