This combination Soak N’ Strain colander from Tovolo allows you to gently wash berries, greens, vegetables, and more. Fill the bowl with water, soak, then simply tip the bowl to drain water through the colander. Peg inserts on the colander fit inside mixing bowl handles to keep both pieces together as the strainer swivels away from the bowl for draining. The pegs do not slide out of the inserts when turning, ensuring an easy drain. Both the colander and bowl are designed to be used either separately or together. The strainer can be removed from the bowl and placed in the sink, and the bowl can be used for mixing, dressing a salad, serving and more. This colander is a cook’s best friend! Drain water out of cooked pasta or boiled vegetables without fuss. Wash vegetables, fruits, and berries in the strainer, and watch the water flow out, leaving you with ready-to-eat ingredients. Colander holes are large to encourage quick draining after soaking. Holes are tapered inward, so they will catch any produce that could fall through without compromising waterflow. The colander and mixing bowl can also be used separately, making the Soak N’ Strain a must-have in your kitchen. Made of BPA-free nylon. Dishwasher safe.
