Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sailingirl Nice thin mesh
I love the thin mesh for rinsing rice.
Con: Not easy to store
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Woof4Food Great Collandar
I actually bought 4 of these. I got mine in the fall and loved it. Then I bought 3 more for Christmas gifts for 3 foodies that I know. It holds a lot, stretches across my sink allowing me to use the rest of the sink for other things. It is a small mesh which drains well. I store it upside down on top of my electric skillet in the cabinet. I wash it in the dishwasher. It can also sit on the counter. I think it is great and haven't had any problems so far.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Christy27 Makes cleaning veggies and straining a snap.
My husband really wanted this on our registry, and now I see why. The arms and basket are strong - the strainer can hold a full load of veggies without bending or breaking. The expandable arms and bottom are also slip resistant, so the colander won't slip around while you're working. And the coating won't scratch counters or sinks. It can stand up on its own, which makes for easy to use on the counter, or for storage. And it's easy to clean.

I ordered this first online and received a broken one so I returned it to the store and exchanged it for another. When I got that one home it too was broken along the track where the arms pull out to expand. I would not recommend buying this since chances are the plastic will break at some point even if not broken when bought!
