5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, large and heat resistant April 7 2014
By Loves Lamp TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
This colander large! It is ~5" tall with an 11" diameter and a capacity of 6L. The drain holes at the bottom measure 3mm in diameter, while the largest holes along the sides are a 5mm x 8mm oval. The handles are sturdy and reinforced. The colander is a bit flexible, allowing you to safely squeeze the colander to form a spout for easy pouring.

Best of all, the recycling code indicates that the colander is made of polypropylene, which means it can handle dishwashers, pasta and other hot items.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value for a Big Colander! Oct. 22 2013
Verified Purchase
I couldn't believe how inexpensive this colonder was (And, of course as a "Prime" member, I got free shipping with no minimium order!) It's actually quite LARGE . . . and perfect for holding all my organic JUICING PRODUCE in the sink (organic kale, chard, carrots, parsley, beets, etc.). Easy to clean. . . . I use this 3 times EVERY DAY. (I got 2 of them--wonderful value!)

5.0 out of 5 stars One word; Polypropylene Oct. 8 2011
By D. Defoe - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is made of polypropylene meaning that you can safely drain pasta and other hot foods in it. It's also nice and large.
The holes may be a bit big but that hasn't proven to be a big problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for non-food draining, too Aug. 28 2011
By R. Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
While this probably wasn't one of Progressive International's design goals, this colander fits perfectly in the top of a Home Depot orange bucket. This makes it very practical for my non-food straining applications.

Only four stars because the holes on the side are a little larger than those on the bottom and they're large enough that I have to be a bit careful sometimes. I can only imagine this was for looks since it isn't necessary for functionality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Giant Colander arrives in Seattle... Feb. 3 2007
By SmartCat - Published on Amazon.com
I wanted a colander for rinsing sprouts, veggies, fruits, etc. It had to be large, not aggressive to my cherished chlorophyl-filled friends, and low maintenance. This is the greatest colander, it does it all. And bonus, it's large enough for my cat to sleep in ;o)

If you are looking for a large colander you will like this one. The interior is about 11" and its about 14 1/2" across from the edge of each handle.

4.0 out of 5 stars huge, durable colander May 27 2011
By John W. Wendt - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This colander is very large, and is made of a slightly flexible, very tough plastic. The flex is nice--you can bend it with the two large handles to funnel your stuff into a smaller container, at least somewhat. You can drop it or probably even throw it against the wall (if you are so inclined!) without worrying about bending/breaking--goodbye stainless steel! It's great for just about everything--vegetables, pasta, large beans--but not for rinsing smaller beans such as unsoaked soybeans, because the holes in the sides are too large for this, and some get through. Too bad for me--I like to rinse my soybeans before soaking them, so they are soaking in clean water, before I make soymilk. Don't know why the holes in the side have to be that large...so, not perfect for my needs.

But it may be perfect for your needs--and is still great for a lot of other food rinsing and draining tasks. I would highly recommend it, with the above-mentioned caveat.
