Colander

A colander (or cullender) is a bowl-shaped kitchen utensil with holes in it used for draining food such as pasta or rice. A colander is also used to rinse vegetables.

The perforated nature of the colander allows liquid to drain through while retaining the solids inside. It is sometimes also called a pasta strainer or kitchen sieve.

Conventionally, colanders are made of a light metal, such as aluminium or thinly rolled stainless steel. Colanders are also made of plastic, silicone, ceramic, and enamelware.

The word colander comes from the Latin colum meaning sieve.

Other uses

The colander in the form of pasta strainer was adopted as a religious headgear of the parody religion Pastafarianism in mock obedience to the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
