As kitchen tools, colanders and strainers are often used interchangeably, but each is designed with a specific purpose: A bowl-shaped or rectangular colander typically features large holes, two handles, and feet at the base that allow it to stand on its own while you pour a pot of vegetables or cooked pasta into it. A strainer, by contrast, features a fine mesh sieve to use for separating suspended solids from a liquid, such as a soup or stock. Strainers can also be used to rinse rice and other small grains that might slip through a colander’s larger holes.
Whether you prefer a space-saving foldable colander, an elegant copper design, or a fine mesh strainer, you’ll find a durable, high-quality kitchen tool to suit your needs at Riverbend Home.
