Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thanksgiving life saver This was given to me by my mother-in-law for Christmas last year and I’m so thankful that I had it this past Thanksgiving. Having extra bowls with the strainer and lids worked out perfectly when multiple people were cooking in my kitchen! I was able to cook some things ahead and save them in the bowls with the lids while I moved on to other tasks. Truly a lifesaver this Thanksgiving! And perfect for the kitchen multi tasker!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good Concept I really like all the Cook's Essential items QVC has to offer, and I really wanted to like this item. I liked the concept of this strainer with a bottom, to set aside and drain excess liquid. I looked at this several times, and watched Meredith's video. I was hesitant about the extra bottom container and lids, the extra items just did not seem useful. I did order it. This thing is huge! I have fairly large hands, the handle on the colander is huge. Very awkward and uncomfortable to hold onto, not to mention how much "real estate" it takes up in my cupboard. I suppose if you were cooking over three pounds of ground beef at a time or two packages of pasta at a time, it would work efficiently. But, just to get it our to wash a pint of strawberry, or drain a can of beans, etc., just not going to work. Too many thumbs down for me to keep it. HOWEVER, make it half the size with just the bottom to catch extra run off liquid, and I would buy two...a set of two perhaps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart Product!! My husband wanted these strainer and bowls set. When he buys the large packages of raw hamburger (it's cheaper to buy in bulk), he cooks all of it as loose hamburger for casseroles and soups, etc. He then packages them in freezer storage bags and freezes them. He then only needs to take out what he needs in his recipe. But before he can do this, he needs to strain all the grease out of it. And this product is the perfect solution. The grease drains into one of the included bowls and then he leaves it on the counter for a few minutes so all the grease is out of it. Highly ecommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Does What It Does I bought this for washing and draining fruits, canned and jarred goods, etc. For that purpose it is perfect: the strainer can drain in its bowl and not occupy my sink. If I need to drain more than one item, I now have my old mesh strainer as a back-up, so this is really handy. I did not and do not plan to use it to drain hot grease, I have one of those silicone pan "lips" for that. So, for the intended purpose, this is great and I am glad I have it, use it pretty much everyday for something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier These are a wonderful addition to the kitchen. My main use is for rinsing fruits and vegetables and I love just setting the strainer on the bowl to catch water drain. I agree with one reviewer, believe review of full price item, that there is a slight amount of residual liquid after straining. However, this is so minimal and not in the least a detraction for me. I would not hesitate to recommend to a friend or relative to pick up this item. Am kind of new to the "as is" purchasing, but mine arrived in like new condition.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was really excited to get this and use it. So when I used it the first time I was disappointed. I had cooked ground beef and just to be safe, had let it cool for just a couple of minutes before straining. Then strained it in the strainer over one of the bowls. After using it and then going to wash it, I noticed that the finish had come off and some of the holes weren't the same. I then washed the bowl and noticed that the finish in the bowl was just like the strainer. If this product was not meant for medium to high heat foods then that should have been stated. I even let my hamburger have a cool time and it STILL happened. I am usually really happy with all of my CE pieces, but this one let me down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW At first I thought do I really need this...but, yes. I did. I love that I can sit the paste or veggie on top of the bowls to completely drain the water. Excellent product. Glad I purchased it. I bought the green..
