There is nothing like getting your family a nice pasta dinner together only to drain half of your noodles down the drain. This happens more often than I like to admit. Whether I am trying to cheat another dish from making it's way to the sink or using an average colander, there is always a noodlw fatality. No more watching your spaghetti or rice slip through the holes. No slow or incompletely draining water. No worries about warping, scratching, rusting or tipping over. Whether you're boiling pasta, steaming vegetables or washing fruit, the Bellemain Stainless Steel Colander simply makes your life easier.
Micro Holes Keep Tiny Grains from Falling Through
Less than 1/16" in diameter, the Bellemain's perforations prevent even cooked rice and orzo from going down the drain. Water actually drains quicker because the holes are smaller! Saving you time!!
Why does water go through mesh strainers so fast? Because there is less solid surface to slow it down. That's the principle behind the Bellemain's mesh-style perforations. The entire bowl, from the bottom to the rim, is perforated, so there's nowhere for water to get trapped.
Solid Ring Base Won't Tip Over
The problem with colanders that have separate feet is that if one foot lands in the sink drain, the whole bowl tips over. The Bellemain's base is one solid circle of stainless steel that keeps the colander safely level. It also keeps your food elevated above the floor of the sink and whatever water hasn't yet gone down the drain.
Every part of the Bellemain is solid, practically indestructible stainless steel, so you can expect many years of trouble-free performance. When you've finished draining your cooked or washed food, just throw it in the dishwasher. Score! What could be easier!
The Bellemain Micro-Perforated Stainless Steel 5-Quart Colander is quite a handy tool to have in my kitchen. My daughter is a Mac & Cheese nut, which entails me constantly straining the noodles. Before the Bellemain I used a traditional 'run of the mill' colander. Plastic, small and large holes, flimsy and unreliable where their features. They left pockets of water in her noodles, never fully removing most water. Keep in mind I wasn't expecting bone dry, just no large amount of water. I always had to give it the extra help to do it's job of straining. This would force me to forget a colander all together and use a utensil to remove liquid. I lost many noodles this way. That was until the Bellemain Colander. The tiny holes baffle me as to how they manage to drain faster than a larger hole. I am not complaining, they can continue to amaze me! The structure of the colander is solid and not in any way flimsy or weak. The handles make straining a breeze! One of the best feature of this wonderful kitchen tool is that it can be put in the dishwasher, every moms dream. If your looking for a high quality colander that will save you a headache, time, money and put a smile on your face, get a Bellemain Colander. This mother approves!Connect with Bellemain:
