This colander is a versatile kitchenware tool ideal for draining foods like pasta and rice and rinsing fruits and vegetables. Similar to, but sturdier than a strainer, it features perforations that allow liquid to flow through while solid food is retained inside the colander. A protective base at the bottom allows the colander to be more stable when it is placed on the countertop or in the kitchen sink, and the rounded handles on each side facilitate transport. Crafted from professional-quality stainless steel, this colander is highly durable. Offered in three sizes, take your pick depending on intended use. Ideally, it's convenient to have all three sizes in your kitchen.
