I was in need of a new colander as mine was so old and getting terrible looking. I use my colander for draining pasta, hamburger grease and washing fruit off. I recently found LiveFresh and they had a 5 Quart Steel Colander that I was sent to review and let me tell you more about this colander it can drain well with the extra close, small holes on every surface allowing for super-fast drainage so you don't have to tilt the bowl to get all of the water out. The robust sieve holds onto your spaghetti noodles and cooked rice and stops small foods from falling through. The sturdy solid ring base keeps the colander from tipping over so that you can fill it up without fear of dumping your food. Precision-cut drainage ports are added to the base to prevent backflow, now water will not get trapped in the base. 100% dishwasher safe and rust-proof, this 5 Quart colander has never been easier to clean. The smooth pierced metal is gentle on your dishcloths and hands. Constructed of professional grade 18/10, 304 stainless- steel and built to last a lifetime. LiveFresh steel will never deform or bend as its 20% thicker than other colanders. LiveFresh premium handles are riveted to the bowl and will never come off!
My Opinion: I used it last night to drain my ravioli and I really like the size and the handles as my old one had handles that I would have to watch the steam and got burnt once this one is by far better. I like the fact that the holes drain quickly, 100% satisfaction and a lifetime warranty.
