This colander is AMAZING! I enjoy how modern it looks. It is wide enough to fit across my sink both length/width. My sink is a two sided sink and the middle is lower than the edges so it fits better length wise. Anything that comes out of boiling water has not melted/burned the product at all. It also stays in place better than I thought it would. I hate draining anything in my sink as the water seems to always fill up, so I have to hold the colander as to not let the food touch the "sink water." This product completely solved that issue. It is also nice that you can leave it over the sink and still put dishes underneath. If you are on the fence about this colander. Buy it. You will NOT regret it one bit.
