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.
It's super sturdy. No worries at all about it not being able to hold whatever it is that you're rinsing or draining. I haven't tried but I have no doubt that it would easily hold an entire bag of say potatoes without any sort of damage. It's solidly built.
The hole are fairly large. This could be a good or bad thing depending on what it is that you want to drain/rinse. If you're doing small things, say rice or small beans, then this would be a terrible choice as they would easily fall out of the holes. If you're doing larger things then it's great and allows for fast drainage.
Overall it's a great item. It's very well made, heavy and solid. I would definitely buy it again.
