A Collapsible Colander from OXO

A Collapsible Colander from OXO

Flat pack. Collapsible colanders are a mini-trend right now. (How many times have you seen the infomercial for the flat fold colander?)

We've been testing the OXO Good Grips Silicone Cooking Colander (Amazon.com, $19.99).

We love that it punches down and can be stored flat. We were surprised to find that it is easier to clean than our enamel colander. The colander also works as a steamer basket and can be immersed into water for blanching and parboiling.

Cooks with small kitchens may need just one colander. If you're in a one-colander household, this isn't the gadget for you. Instead go for a colander with legs to stand on its own so that you can keep both hands on the boiling pot.
