These are heavy duty colanders with a nice non-skid bases to them. The holes are plenty big to drain large items. Thin noodle pasta probably wouldn't do to good in these though. The only negative I would have is the stickers affixed to the bottom. I think others have expressed similar observations about the sticker on the bottom side of the base. I soaked mine in goo-gone for 15-20 minutes or more and most of it came off. I suspect over time the residue "footprint" of the label will come off in the repeated washings these will get. They store nicely in their nested configuration and their capacities add versatility to my colander collection. I would say these are medium to large holed colanders; certainly not fine mesh.

I was so glad I ordered the set of three Pro-Colanders. I can use them for many different food items. This is a very well made product with nice handle grips and a sturdy non scratch, non tip base. They are easy to store, just stack one inside the other. They fit beautifully in my cabinet, and also look beautiful on my counter. Enjoy!
