An essential kitchen gadget for hassle-free cooking and cleaning, every home needs a few different sized colanders for different purposes. Whether you want to drain pasta water, wash fruit and vegetables, or rinse small grains, a colander does it all. Available in various materials, sizes, and colors, our curated list features some of the best colanders that make rinsing and washing any produce a breeze.

    Colanders for All Your Washing and Draining Needs

    Whether you're looking for a stainless steel colander or an enamel one, our collection features choices in both materials, including collapsible and over-the-sink options. Tall steel colanders are great for draining big batches of pasta, while a collapsible silicone colander is perfect when washing veggies. Collapsible colanders are perfect for a small kitchen as they can be folded flat and stacked into a cabinet. An over-the-sink colander rests securely on top of the sink to keep your hands free to do the heavy lifting of pots. Enamel colanders with bright prints and porcelain finish double up as a piece of art to display in your glass cabinets.

    Choosing the Right-sized Colander

    If you're cooking in small quantities, a colander with a firm-grip silicone ladle will allow you to scoop out small portions of peas or pasta straight from the pan. They're also effective while frying battered foods or poaching eggs without puncturing them. The fine mesh colander skims impurities from oils and stocks to give you a quick and efficient solution. On the other hand, if you're cooking for the family, a big colander might be your best bet. It can hold large quantities of grains, pasta, or any other produce, in one go. Consider getting kitchen linens like potholders to protect your hands from the heat while you drain boiling pasta water.
