4 Over-the-sink Colander
July 14, 2014
By James, LA
Oddly, sometimes I need to have two or three colanders going for "timed drains" (i.e., salted zucchini strips resting in one, rinsing chopped veggies in another, etc.). This is a quick solution that stores easily with a small footprint.

4 Expandable Colander
July 11, 2014
By KoKo, AL
I had a similar colander that I purchased some years ago, but the 'handles' came unattached from the edge of the basket, making it very unstable. I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond to purchase a new one, but they were out of stock. So, I turned to this one and purchased it for about 2x the price of the BBB colander. It is nice and I like it, but it does now have supportive bands under the basket. My previous basket had them and the basket would sit upright if you took it into the garden to pick veggies. This one does not, it isn't horrible but it will rock to the side and if your basket is full then your produce spills out.

5 Best Ever!!!
January 26, 2014
By Anonymous, TN
This is the most awesome colander ever. I saw it on QVC in the background when Rachel was on QVC. I had to have it so I got it from this site. What a wonderful idea.

4 Product is as shown, but hard to clean
August 12, 2013
By Dena, MA
This is a sturdy, large strainer, with crookedish legs to hold it on the sinktop. But I haven't had any problems. However, I took it out of the dishwasher and it smelled weird, so I took a good look at it, and tons of food was caught and stuck under the metal rim around strainer. What a bummer. I don't know where it came from, but it sure is hard to get out!

4 My Spaghetti is High and Dry
February 14, 2011
By judith, PA
I only have a single sink in the kitchen, so by the time dinner is almost done (and my pasta needs to be drained) my sink is rarely completely clean. I don't like the hot water splashing from a dirty sink back onto the pasta. So this colander pleases me since it keeps the food several inches above the sink surface. I like it. I wish it was a bit more sturdily constructed, but is has not failed me.

2 flimsy colander
May 6, 2009
By pamela, CT
this colander wobbles and frequently falls off the sink edge at the worst time such as when I am pouring a boiling pot of pasta in it to drain. I have to extend the 'legs" out to their max to fit the edge of my "FRANKE" double sink. the colander is too large for my small sink. the sink is a large oval shape, maybe this colander is no good for those sinks.

2 Broken Product

By Kimberly, MN
I think the product is a good kitchen tool and the price was good, however it was broken when I opened the box, so it's never been used.

5 A product that does what it's supposed to
March 27, 2008
By Sharkey, MT
This product is a snap to both use and clean. It has easily handles everything we have used in the kitchen from berries and pasta to vegetables and lettuce. With the arms out and straddling the sink you can quickly empty any pot into it, catch everything and it stays put When emptying it you can slide in one arm and just pour everything out the end, again without spilling anything.

It does need to be stored carefully to not mash the screen, However, that is a very minor consideration considering how well it does the job it is supposed to.

4 Great Product!
August 29, 2007
By Jamie, NV
Well constructed adjusts easily. High quality mesh. Only downside is that it takes up a bit of cupboard space, but the convenience of using it far outweighs that minor drawback. Plan to include it in all my new household gift packages from now on.

4 Somewhat helpful
April 8, 2007
By Vanessa, NC
This expandable colander is nice but I've found the basket to be too small for what I was planning to use it for. I purchased it mainly for cleaning and rinsing all the fresh veggies from our garden. This item just doesn't handle large bunch of veggies. If you normally have only small batches of things to clean and drain, this works great. I especially like how it keeps the food way up high off the bottom on the sink (but that does tend to lead to lots of splashes).

I bought my mom one several years ago and she loved it. I've always wanted to try one because I love pasta. It is wonderful. It's great for vegatables also.

5 The strainer is great
January 29, 2007
By Rick, FL
A simple product nonetheless it suits my needs perfectly. The strainer is large enough to accommodate 2 1/2 lbs of fresh spinach, the expanding feature allows the strainer to fit any sink. I would highly recommend this itemd
