5 Love It
November 17, 2014
By linda, CA
I wish I would have purchased this colander years ago! The holes are small enough that so far nothing has slipped through. Everything drains quickly. I've just been putting it in the dishwasher with no problems. It's great for everything from rinsing grapes, draining pasta or rinsing the last bit of fat from ground meat.

5 Best colander I've ever had
July 16, 2014
By Sara, FL
This colander is sturdy, well-made, and drains small and larger items quickly. The holes are small enough that most items are safe from dropping through, but plentiful enough for water to actually drain. Some very nice looking stainless steel colanders simply don't drain well, but this one does.

5 Precision Pierced Colander 5-Qt
April 10, 2014
By Patti, NY
The colander is very nice; plenty of small-sized holes and drained items do not sit in water thanks to the very stable base. That said, the colander was expensive and therefore, I did not rate this product as a "value" purchase.

4 Great quality and functional
November 23, 2013
By Kristin, AZ
Awesome- much better than the mesh strainer I had as food particles easily rinse off. Only con so far is the handles seems small (and I have petite hands). But great quality stainless steel that should last for decades.

The perforated metal is better because the liquid drains completely.

5 what I was looking for
February 5, 2013
By Nancy, OK
we use a colander all the time and when our old strainer/colander wore out and needed to be replaced I wanted to purchase one that was easier to clean and still serve the purpose that I needed one for. This colander was excellent for rinsing rice and pasta.The holes are small enough that the rice or pasta didn't fall through the wholes yet large enough for easy rinsing and washing.

4 Light Weight And Perfect Size
June 5, 2012
By Layne, WA
This colander/strainer has been exactly what I wanted. The 5-qt. size is perfect for big and small dishes. It's light weight making it easy to wash and handle. There was a small dent in the metal when it was shipped, but it should be easy to pound back into place since the metal is thinner. The only negative comment I have is that it catches water pretty easily so the water doesn't always drip through; but I guess this could be a similar problem with all colanders.

Excellent colander, I give it a high rating; it beats my other one, of which I gave away to the trift store.

5 What I have been looking for.
March 22, 2012
By Anne, MO
My previous metal colander was embarassing (dented with wobbling legs). This is beautiful. The small holes prevent loss of even the smallest pasta, but allows drainage. The base gives wonderful support. I don't have to worry about it falling over.

5 Great for initial straining of stock
February 15, 2012
By Sharley, MD
I used mine last weekend when I made stock. Instead of trying to pick out the carrots, bones, etc., I just ladled it all through the colander into a larger bowl. It did a great job of containing all the stock "debris." I still needed to strain the stock to get rid of the excess fat but this was a great start.

5 Better choice for familes
February 7, 2012
By Sharley, MD
Bought this because it was highly rated by Cook's Illustrated and it really is a good product. Compared to my old aluminum colander, the numerous holes made quick work of draining pasta. I like that it's stainless steel. The size of this is better for families than the 3 quart model.

5 Best Colander I found
January 19, 2012
By Bruce, WA
I looked at dozens of colanders both in store and online. This is the best by far. It drains more thoroughly than any other colander I've used and is very sturdy. Definitely a quality product and well worth the price.

5 Great product--will use forever
September 30, 2011
By Mary, VA
This is a very nice colander. Holes aren't too large so you won't lose any spaghetti ;-) in the sink; but yet it drains very well.

5 Happy
April 7, 2011
By Rebecca, MA
This is a great colander! It's big and I love that it's drainage holes are not covered by it's base! No voids to hold water! I plan on purchasing the smaller one for a matched set. I already got rid of all my oddball ones that don't drain as well!
