I was given a gift card for Mother's Day to buy a different brand of collapsible over the sink colander that was a few dollars more. When I went order that one I found it would be 6-8 weeks before it was available. This one was available for shipping immediately. So I did some further research. I love the fact that I don't have to expand the bowl section and if I do I can choose two different sized. I can leave it flat and wash cut veggies in the sink and then dump in the pot on the stove. Have used to drain pasta, and served from the counter as a family buffet... was able to re-heat pasta in micro and in the sink with hot water. This is the third hand in the kitchen. Perfect size and easy to store. This is the one to have. Thank you for the Great Mother's day gift.
I love this collapsible colander! It takes up a small amount of space in my tiny kitchen but still allows me to use a full-sized colander. It is just my husband and me in our apartment so we don't cook massive amounts of food, but this colander has been great for quickly draining pasta and for washing fruits and veggies. I love how the 'arms' pull out and I can rest it on the ledges of my sink or simply set it in the sink and it doesn't wobble. It will be great to use when we have guests and I am preparing larger quantities of food. This colander is very solid and durable and extremely easy to clean. It doesn't get super hot like a metal colander would when you drain a pot of boiling pasta. Like any other colander, food can get stuck in the drainage holes, so be sure to always check while you're washing it. I am very pleased with this colander and am so glad to have it! Excellent product!
