    The VITESSE VS-1203 colander is very small – 18 cm in diameter around the top edge. But it has two handy handles, a stand for easy placement in the sink. Holes in the colander are not made along the entire contact surface, but only along the bottom – this must be taken into account when choosing dishes, although it does not affect the task of draining water. What is definitely convenient to do with the VITESSE VS-1203 colander is to drain the rice, which is not clogged in the side holes due to their absence.

    Material – stainless steel, mirror-polished on the inside and outside. The colander is dishwasher safe.


    • has two handles and a stand;
    • dishwasher safe;
    • mirror polished steel on both sides;
    • affordable price;
    • compact size.


    • Slots only at the bottom.

    Kamille KM-5125

    Rating: 4.6

    KAMILLE KM-5125

    A special place in our review took Kamille KM-5125 colander: it is chosen for its multifunctionality and excellent workmanship. It is sold in a kit – a bowl, colander is inserted into it, and a lid with two strainer handles on top. The manufacturer has thought about the convenience of using and storing utensils – this is a plus. Minus – the large colander with a diameter of 26 cm has no handles, only a rim. It makes emptying easier if you get used to it, but you can’t do without the oven mitts in any case. Questions may arise about the steel – it is thin, but if you use the product as intended and do not overload it, it will remain intact in its original form.


    • Set of colander, bowl and lid with grates;
    • stainless mirror steel;
    • wide rim;
    • easy storage.


    • thin steel.
