Rated 5 out of 5 by LIS-A Greatest invention since the wheel...........
No more balancing a colander inside my mixing bowls to save the liquid, or a sieve on top of a mixing bowl. This is soooooo great..........and also for draining pasta when you want to save the water for thickening the sauce, or don't want sink water touching the pasta while draining it in the colander. It's great for draining fruits that I use for cheesecake topping, while saving the juice for other things, and the slats are narrow enough that I can drain my orzo pasta without if falling through the grate...............and for frozen spinach..............for use in a quiche or frittata, perfect.........................so many uses. Only positives on this purchase.

I've been using this for the past year and just bought another for my mom because it works so well. It was a great gift for the holidays. I've never had a problem with it. It's the perfect addition to Taco Night : )
Rated 3 out of 5 by BabsRN27 Nice grease strainer with one big problem
I bought this colander in July,2015 and have used it many times. Used it for draining ground beef mainly. Worked great..no mess on counter or sink. My lid fit very well. However, now in January,2016 I poured some hot grease into the colander and it melted. Not very happy. I never cooled my grease down before and hadn't read any instruction to do so. Needs to be improved. Otherwise, it is a great invention. I would recommend to a friend but with a caution to cool down the grease a little before using. I give it a 3 star.

I'm not one to do theses reviews but if you plan on putting any heat in the colander reconsider it will melt right away I'm a loyal buyer here so couldn't help but to tell you how very disappointed in this Great Idea though!

This does exactly what it is supposed to. Easy to use and easy to dump. No more excess grease! You do have to wait to pour some grease in because it is too hot (ex. bacon), but we love this thing!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Visitor101 Terrific!
I absolutely love this colander. I not only strain greasy items like bacon and browned ground beef but I also used it to defrost frozen spinach and when I salted some eggplant to get out the bitter liquid so I could make Eggplant Parmigiana. A definite must have for the family cook. So handy to have and very easy to clean and store. I'm glad that I purchased two and wouldn't hesitate to give as a bridal shower gift or housewarming gift.

I entered a wrong number when ordering and when my package arrived this is what I received. Thinking QVC had made the mistake I called Customer Service. They didn't but told me I could return it for a refund. Since I had 30 days I thought I would give it a try. I am SO HAPPY that I did. I use this product at least four or five times a week. It works beautifully and I was finally able to get rid of that smelly coffee can that I was using. The clean up is great and the ability to be able to drain hot grease into a container without spilling it onto the counter is fantastic. I definitely think it should be in every kitchen!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nolagirl1969 Amazing Productt!!
I have had this product for a few months and used it for straining meat, pastas, cleaning vegetables, straining bacon grease & straining oysters. Great product!! I have put it in the dishwasher a dozen times with no issues with melting or discoloration. I ordered as gifts for my family & friends! All love it!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gloria T Easy to use
I love this. I made a product like this for my personal use but this is a better version. The first time I put it on my shelf I made the mistake of putting the cover on the grease catcher piece(bottom piece). When I poured the grease the lid was on the bottom piece and grease went all over. I'll never do that again. If you ever make improvements, please make a lid for the strainer piece so we can leave the pieces together on our counters.
Rated 1 out of 5 by emilyrich84 It melted on second use!
I am usually quite pleased with the quality of products I buy on QVC. I was so excited to get this item as it makes so much sense! Unfortunately, it is junk. I poured bacon pieces and grease into it to drain the rendered fat and when I returned to it a few minutes later to retrieve my bacon pieces for my recipe, it had melted the colander. The saddest thing is that I was unable to save my bacon too, as it had melted green plastic pieces stuck to it.
Of course, I am just past the 30-day return policy, so into the trash bin it went. I am sad and disappointed.

I use this strainer for browned meat, small portions of pasta and straining vegetables. My go to colander. Would love a bigger size and different colors.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PalmettoGuy Where has this been?!
I happened upon this item kind of on accident - was browsing through the sale items one evening and checked it out. In our house we have always had a clear jar (old spaghetti jar) to put the grease in, then it'd sit under the sink and wait for the next use. It was not the best solution, not to mention when you'd try to pour the grease in most of it would end up in the sink.
This thing is amazing - large enough to pour the meat straight from the pan into the strainer and off the grease goes! Put the lid on and store it away or wait until it hardens and wipe into the trash! This is a great and handy product!!
