I know! It gives you the measurements, and you can get an idea of the size of it from the "peas picture" given above. I still somehow pictured it being larger! =P I love the handle, and the bottom "feet". It's great for chopping veggies on the counter and using this to rinse them. This is great for a small family, or a small task. Also if you're controlling portion sizes for the family this would be large enough. For example pasta night for 4. I would certainly recommend this to anyone; It's durable, the quality is amazing and all for a great price.
