  • MOST HELPFUL REVIEWS

  • I bought this collander because I was having a dinner party for 8 and I was afraid the pasta I was cooking wouldn't fit into my old (much smaller) collander. The "legs" of the collander were a little too short to stretch across the width of my sink but it worked fine across the "height" of the sink (i.e., from spigot to edge of counter). The moment of truth came when I poured out HUGE pot of pasta (two pounds worth) and it EASILY fit into the collander even with room to spare. I will totally use this for draining strawberries or veggies too -- its size makes it really great to use. Even though I usually cook for small numbers, the recipes I make usually serve 4 or more (and then I just pack up for leftovers/lunches), so the size will be convenient even for larger groups.

    I recommend this product.

  • The convenience of this colander is great. Being able to have a sturdy non moving area to drain large amounts of food is very convenient, especially when you need both hands to pour the pot.

  • A product that does what it's supposed to

    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.

    I recommend this product.

  • Great Product!

    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.

    I recommend this product.

  • Somewhat helpful

    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 recommend this product.

    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.

  • The strainer is great

    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

  • If you cook lots of pasta, this is a great product. Good for washing fruits, veggies. When I cut up eggplant, I let it drain in this over the sink. I'm sure there are more uses...and I'll probably find them all!
