The Norpro 11.25 x 14-in. Expandable Over-the-Sink Colander makes it easy to rinse fruits and vegetables or drain pasta. The expandable design allows you to easily adjust it to fit over your sink or large pots for hands-free operation that keeps your fingers away from escaping steam from pasta dishes. The rubber feet on the bottom of the expandable arms keep the colander firmly in place, and the locking handles prevent the unit from retracting during use. The fine mesh is professional gauge for exceptional draining, and the durable stainless steel construction ensures that the colander will last through many periods of heavy use in your kitchen. The large basket easily holds large apples, pears and similar fruits as well as an ample amount of pasta. When finished, the durable construction allows you to rinse the colander clean to air dry for future use.
Best Used For:
Use the expandable colander to rinse healthy and nutritious fruit. The heavy-duty design also makes it a great choice for draining many different types of pasta.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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
