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.
