Colanders are a sieve that is shaped like a bowl, used in cooking to drain liquids from foods such as pasta, noodles, vegetables, and more. Vollrath has a great selection of high quality aluminum colanders with a pattern of holes punched throughout the bowl, with handles on both sides for easy lifting. Aluminum colanders make it easy to drain hot liquids from food such as noodles, by fitting easily in the sink and letting the cook pour the water into the sieve rather than having to hold it. A few shakes will removed any residual liquid so your noodles or vegetables will come out perfect every time. There won't be any additional water which may not blend with any cheese or sauces used. Colanders are also great for draining canned vegetables, and for cleaning lentils or beans. They are also great for making salads, so you can wash your vegetables and then put them in the colander to allow them to drain while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
Colanders are an inexpensive and necessary tool for any kitchen whether commercial or residential. Vollrath has a great selection of colanders to help you with my different purposes in your kitchen. At Foodservice Superstore, we have a great selection of Vollrath colanders at unbeatable low prices every day.
