    Love this product

    I bought the collapsible colander for my RV because it is a collapsible product and saves space which is limited in an RV. I also like that the handles expand to fit on either side of the sink so it holds the collander away from the sink bottom. I loved the product so much I bought another one for my home. It is a space saver and very functional. I also use it over the sink to clean & peel my vegetables then toss the peelings from the colander to the trash. I highly recommend this product.

    Functional yet stylish kitchen colander.

    Pros: very stylish especially since my kitchen plastics are in the lime green color. This can pass for a serving container, not just a colander. (Hint: sticking with a 'signature' color for your kitchen plastics and storage containers ensures they're returned when you send people home with takeout.) The colander expands nicely and is quite sturdy and the collapsible feature makes for easier storage. Cons: it is a bit pricey. Also drainage holes are located only in the base of the colander which makes sense as holes further up may affect its collapsibility. Some cooks may find this problematic as it does drain more slowly. This, however, didn't affect me. I'm quite happy with the colander's appearance, functionality, and storability and I'm okay with the price as well. I would recommend this in an instant.

    A Staple for every kitchen

    I love using my colander and wore out my first colander. Being that I have four children, I cook a lot of pasta! It allows me to drain the pasta without burning my hands or having the sink water touch my cooked pasta. I loved it so much that I bought one for me and another one for my mom and dad. I would recommend this item as a staple for every kitchen. It is easy to use, easy to clean, and folds flat for easy storage.

    great but...

    we loved this colander for about the first month we owned it. Unfortunetly they claim it's "dishwasher safe" - that it is NOT. The collapsable feature started breaking after a few washers in the dishwasher, then it fianlly gave way today. It worked for about 6 months in total

    Good product for the price

    I have a large farmhouse sink so the colander has to span the sink from front to back instead of from side to side. However this works just fine. The only reason I didn't give five stars is that I don't like plastic products. But, since this has become a plastic world, sometimes that's the best or only choice.
    Nice product, just don't put in the dishwasher because it will lose its shape. Overall product is great.

    Hands-free product

    I love the fact that this colander holds above the sink so it doesn't dirty the washed salad on the bottom of it. Especially when your hands are full. The only thing I suggest being careful when putting it up on the cabinets is that the water will sometime get into the corner of the adjustable sides, so it would leaked out.

    Great Collander

    I love this thing and mine has lasted a long time too. I see here that several people give it low ratings due to it self destructing in the dishwasher. I have to assume that they are putting it in the bottom and close to the heating element. It is better for these things if you wash them in the upper rack, or just wash by hand to keep it working great for a long period of time. The flexible silicon sides that fold up are the issue, they do not do really well when they are heated to high temperatures like a drying element in a dishwasher. If you do buy this, please just wash in the top rack or wash it in the sink. You will be happy to have it as it holds a lot and it stores easily.

    What a surprise! So Handy!

    Yes, I use it everyday! Plus I use it to stack handwashed dishes. Still allows for room in the sink while working on cutting veggies & Keeps the pasta high out of the sink, so I can pour from the pot into the strainer then into a bowl or right to serving dishes... I like it so much I'm sending one to a friend as a gift. Easy to collapse and put away IF I really want to, and easy to sanitize in the dishwasher.
    I ordered this because in our apartment, space is VERY limited so collapsible things are a plus! It works really well, the handles aren't as sturdy as I had hoped but I see this thing lasting quite a while. It doesn't drain as well as a full colander just because the sides collapse and have no drain but it still does its job!
