Riess Enamelware Colander

Both practical and elegant, porcelain enamelware is nonreactive, easy to clean and has a more polished look than unfinished stainless steel, but like metal cookware is lightweight and durable. This colander has fewer holes than some models yet is very fast-draining: The bottom is slightly raised so that the drain holes aren't blocked when the colander is placed on a flat surface. And unlike with plastic colanders, you don't need to worry about your equipment warping or melting when draining boiling pasta or other hot foods. Made by fusing porcelain glass onto iron, this handcrafted product has a clean white enameled finish and floral-patterned drain holes that recall the enamelware's vintage origins and accentuates its rustic appeal; we love how the sleek design show off the glossy enamel. A caveat: Although enamelware is much stronger than glass, the porcelain finish can still chip if it's dropped or hit against a hard surface.
