Which colander do you prefer?

snax | Jul 1, 2010 05:35 PM

I’m looking to buy both a colander and a strainer (or several) and not sure which will suit my needs.

Do you prefer a colander that has three individual feet or the ring pedestal?
Handles verses no handles (just the rim to hold onto)?
Clusters of medium sized holes or a colander riddled with hundreds of small holes?
What size do you find works for you?
Do you find a colander and a strainer interchangeable in your kitchen?

I’m wondering if I should buy a colander with larger holes and buy a strainer to drain finer pastas.
