We spent 20 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Every cook needs a colander and, boy, have they come a long way since they were first introduced. Drain everything from pasta to rice to fruits and vegetables in one of these handy food strainers. Today's models come in a wide variety of styles, colors and sizes to suit any kitchen and cuisine, and some even collapse to save on storage space. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best colander on Amazon.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as behind the computer screen, Brett can either be found hacking furiously away at the keyboard or perhaps enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He hopes to one day become a modern day renaissance man.
