HIC’s Essential Collapsible Silicone Colander with 1.5-quart capacity is perfect for daily food preparation tasks in the kitchen. Use for draining cooking liquids from pasta, rinsing legumes and rice before cooking or washing fruits and vegetables. The footed base keeps foods safely above any draining liquids. It even doubles nicely as a vegetable steamer over a pot of boiling water. The colander collapses to store away easily, saving valuable space in the kitchen gadget drawer or cabinet. It’s made from durable 18/8 stainless steel and heat-resistant (to 500-degrees Fahrenheit), FDA-approved, food-safe, non-stick silicone so it’s easy to clean. Simply wash in warm, soapy water or pop it into the dishwasher.
