Review 2 for OXO Stainless Steel Colander
Just the Right Size Colander
PostedFebruary 6, 2014
My Cooking Level:Intermediate
I received this as a present and was very specific about the size. It had to fit in my 5qt pan that I cook pasta in and still be able to put the lid on top - and it did! The fact that it has many holes is also a plus - it drains fast. I also love that it's stainless steel and has rubber handles. Very easy to use and an excellent product overall. I'm VERY happy with my 3qt colander that is just the right size.
