COLANDER June 1 2001
By A Customer - Published on
The quality of the colander is excellent. However, the holes in the colander are too large. When draining noodles, they tend to come out the holes.

All-Clad Stainless 3-Quart Colander - Love It May 8 2003
By Mrs. Romano - Published on
This is an excellent colander, I love it. All my cookware is All Clad Stainless Steel so I decided to buy this colander and have not been disappointed. Although this is the smaller of the two sizes All Clad makes it is very roomy. This colander can drain a pound of pasta (even a pound of lasagna) without any problems. It is also great for rinsing salad, the solid side handles make it very easy to manage. It is made very well and is very sturdy. The cleanup is also very easy. Highly recommended!

It's Quality, BUT!!! Jan. 8 2010
By Great Cook - Published on
I have owned this for at least 4 years.

I have to say the Quality is certainly there,and will last forever.
I do find the holes too big sometimes, as someone else said, and I make whole wheat pasta's.

This Colander is deeper, and taller then my other colanders.
When I make Ravioli's and pour them into this, its a far drop (so to speak), and some of them fall apart.
This problem does not happen when I use one of my other colanders, that are more shallow,
and wider.

That said, it is good looking, and goes with my stainless kitchen.
Has nice sturdy handles.

When its not being used, I keep potatoes, or onions etc. in this in my walk-in pantry,
so nobody see's it.

Would I buy this again? NO.
Its pricey. I think I paid about 60.00 , and I like my nonstick one better,
and my other shallower and wider colanders.
Also I like colanders with feet on them, as they drain better then this ring at the bottom.
With the ring at the bottom, the water fills up in the ring in my sink, and I have to lift it up to let the water drain from the ring, and turn it to the side abit!!.

If your looking for a stainless colander to keep on your kitchen counter,
with fruit inside etc, This one would be the one you want. It does look very nice.

All-Clad quality/perfect size Feb. 11 2009
By J. Smith - Published on
Verified Purchase
I bought both the 3qt and 5qt all-clad colanders. The 3qt size is the only one my family of 4 needs. We use it to rinse produce and drain pasta. If I had known before my purchase, I would have never bought the 5qt size.

The All-Clad colanders are top drawer. Heavy gauge 18/10 stainless steel is used to make them and they will surely last a lifetime for non-professional use at will not need to baby this product. Being stainless steel, the dishwasher-safe feature is important to most home cooks. If stains appear, Barkeeper's Friend is recommended by All-Clad and makes stains disappear in an instant as I can testify to. I have owned mine for 15 years and it remains undented, a little scratched up, but still beautiful in its elegant patina.

That All-Clad colanders are beautiful to behold hanging on the kitchen wall is undoubtedly another main reason people buy them. This colander has some heft to it, so if that is for some reason an issue for you buy a lighter weight colander.

All you really need in a colander, to drain water or other liquids away from your food, is a bowl-shaped vessel with perforations to allow that to occur. Being objective, even a cheap $4 plastic colander will work just fine provided the perforations or holes are small, though plastic retains grease more stubbornly than metal.

Colander perforation size is important no matter what material is used. For draining rice, quinoa, orzo and pastina pasta, for example, very small holes are required so it must be admitted that this All-Clad colander is NOT suitable for that, and neither are many other larger-holed colanders for that matter. Because of that I use my R.S.V.P. Endurance over-the-sink "precision pierced" colander much more than this All-Clad colander (see my review here on Amazon: R.S.V.P. Endurance Colander - Expandable - Pierced).

Inexpensive mesh screen colanders work fine and I own such a screen colander. I was essential for draining foods of very small size the All-Clad could not handle without allowing some smaller foods to escape. I now use the pierced R.S.V.P. Endurance model ($30) rather than screen colander ($15)for most all colander needs because it is much easier to clean than screen mesh and the hundreds of holes are very tiny.

MY All-Clad 5-quart Colander was used for much of my colander work. Cook's Illustrated/America's Test Kitchen recommends a $25 RSVP Precision Pierced 5-Quart stainless steel colander with many, many smaller holes while accurately noting that expensive colanders can be overkill. This is a sensible option. But if you want an upscale colander, this All-Clad 5-quart colander is big enough to handle even a pound of pasta with ease and it's stunning looks make it a joy to use, but it its cost and larger holes remain big issues.

For others of a more thrifty and practical bent this All-Clad product will not be your thing. On a personal note, I love mine, but I use it less and less each day and favor my R.S.V.P. Endurance over-the-sink colander. In my opinion the All-Clad colander gets five+ stars for quality, but only three stars for practicality, for an average of four stars.
