Rated 5 out of 5 by Noel from Sturdy and durable Buying it again for my mom and sister because it’s sturdy and will last a long long time. Thanks OXO!Date published: 2018-07-04Rated 5 out of 5 by WSFAN from Great Quality I just bought this item and I never thought I'd be thrilled with a colander. Great job OXO.Date published: 2017-10-17Rated 5 out of 5 by WyoWindblown from Couldn't ask for more in a colander! Oxo has another winner! The 5-qt. size is plenty large for pasta for 6-8 people and the handles stay cool even when pouring a good volume of boiling water through it. It's much easier to clean that the equivalently-sized mesh one we have. The very best thing about it is that every surface touching food (especially hot food) is metal, so worries about plastics leaching chemicals to food are minimized. I'd like the feet to be a little bigger to hold the bowl part a bit higher from the bottom of the sink, but other than that, it's about perfect.Date published: 2014-12-24Rated 5 out of 5 by norcalshopper from Very pleased with this Colander This is a colander, but I actually bought it as a replacement for a larger strainer I had for many, many years. When looking at regular strainers I found they were not large enough and or not well made for my purposes. The colander is working great as a strainer as the holes are very small so rice for instance does not get through. There are no rough edges--good design. I have a large heavy duty colander made by All-Clad that I use for other items and it is a great product as well.Date published: 2014-11-30Rated 5 out of 5 by RainbowGirl from Great Colander I love this colander. I use it almost every day. I drain pasta and vegetables and I wash and drain grapes and berries. It is the perfect size and washes up nicely. It comes out beautifully clean and sparkling in the dishwasher. I especially like the rubberized ring around the top. My former colander had a metal ring around it and the last time I used it I cut my finger on the separation where the ring was overlapped. That was the last time I used it. I immediately went to Williams-Sonoma website and found this one. It is perfect and it is safe. The rubber ring is continuous, no seams, and makes it easy to grip when draining. I highly recommend this product.Date published: 2014-09-30Rated 5 out of 5 by GlenJWC from Perfect Replacement My family has ruined so many plastic colanders. I started looking for a replacement that could take their special handling. Well..... This is it. It is metal and dishwasher safe (top/bottom) so far. The price was right. I have both sizes and use one or both of them everyday. The family has commented that they like the feel and weight.Date published: 2014-03-23Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthBethesdaMarket from A good product! I like this colander very much. Easy to clean and easy to stack.Date published: 2013-08-08Rated 5 out of 5 by gabbygirl from Great Colander If you don't want to spend a fortune and want a good colander that won't wobble and will strain whatever you need, this is the one. fits in the sink easily, doesn't get hot due to the rubber lining around the entire piece and is easy to handle. You can't go wrong with this colander.Date published: 2013-05-06
