I like the size of this Pretty Pink Colander it has a lot of uses I drain my vegies for salads in it. It's wonderful for draining pasta and if you love color in you kitchen use it for a vegie bowl or a fruit bowl. Great size now I never miss when I drain my pasta ! Besides being pretty I like that it's easy to clean up. I'm not afraid of the handles falling off either. Like the stainless one that this replaced.
On arrival, the color was a very pale pink, not fuscia like the picture. I was dissapointed. The construction however, seems solid but I have not run it under water yet. It is very large and it is sitting on my table holding oranges right now.
This colander is fantastic!! It is large enough to drain a couple pounds of pasta, or rinse a lot of veggies all at once. Cleanup is a snap too! This colander looks great, so you don't have to hide it in a cupboard, leave it out , fill it with fruit, you can use it for just about anything. MAKES A GREAT GIFT FOR THOSE SPECIAL COOKS IN YOUR LIVES (hint, hint).
