Awesome colander! from Durham, NC on 03/18/2015 – Verified Buyer
I'm very happy with the Calypso 5 Qt colander. It is a perfect size for draining pasta or washing fruit and veggies. It is constructed very well and has a good weight to it. I purchased the colander in yellow and it is true to color on the website - it is a bright, sunny yellow and is beautiful. I actually replaced my fruit bowl on my counter top with the colander so i could have it out on display. It is a great, quirky burst of color in my kitchen. Best of all, it is so easy to clean (unlike mesh colanders that I've used in the past). I hand wash it and towel dry it and it still looks as amazing as the day I got it! I strongly recommend this product!

Perfect size and look from College Park, MD on 08/18/2015 – Verified Buyer
I had already purchase a colander at Williams and Sonoma only to realize it was too small. Although, I decided to keep the small one, I needed something bigger for pasta and such. So, I found this one on Wayfair and it's the perfect size for a full pot of pasta and the color is great and bright (My theme is rustic, country kitchen). I got the red one and is bright and beautiful. So nice, that it could even work as a fruit bowl on the counter.

Pros: great value, durable, great color, good size, pretty, functional

Very pretty! from Princeton, NJ on 09/24/2015
I am very happy with this colander. It is large - and that's what I wanted to be able to wash a big bunch of grapes all at once. I (like others on this site) am using it now as a fruit bowl. But I'm not sure that's so practical because then I'll have to dump out the fruit to use it! But I like it sitting on the table so we'll see how that goes. Perhaps I should get another....

Perfect addition to my kitchen! from Jackson, NJ on 12/10/2014 – Verified Buyer
This was a little larger than I thought it would be - obviously I don't have a good grasp on what 5 quarts would look like - but it actually ended up being a perfect size. I ordered the Red which is a gorgeous rich color. I am using this as decoration because the holes are a little larger than I'd like for a colander. Very happy!

Nice looking and good size from New York, NY on 05/19/2015 – Verified Buyer
I just replaced this colander as my other one rusted after about a year. I decided to give it another try since I love the size and the look. The white has changed slightly and now is a brighter cool white whereas my previous colander was a softer white and looked richer and fit in better with my kitchen. If you're looking for a very bright cool white colander, this one is it.

I absolutely love my Calypso Basics 5 Quart Colander. from Torrington, CT on 12/30/2014 – Verified Buyer
I bought the turquoise for me and the azure for my boyfriend, he actually was so psyched and proceeded to throw his old one in the trash!! (old one not from Wayfair) The colors are even prettier in person.
At first I thought, wow this is much bigger than what I already have, But....it is perfect I do not have pasta falling over the sides. Very sturdy also. I will be purchasing the red one next:-) very happy I found this website.

The color lime green pops!!! from Tallahassee, FL on 02/24/2015 – Verified Buyer
I'm doing a flower arrangement in this for a wedding shower and the colors are lime green, pink and silver. This lime enameled colander flower arrangement will be sitting on top of a mirrored cube as the centerpiece and the bride will take it home as one of her shower gifts! Love it...pretty, colorful, and useful all at the same time!

Great product...great color. from Cedar Rapids, IA on 06/09/2015 – Verified Buyer
I needed a colander, especially for draining pasta. The cherry color is great...a nice "pop" of color for my kitchen. I don't keep it in a cupboard when I'm not using it...it's a nice display piece too. And, works great to put fresh fruit in it. Would gladly recommend this item.

Pros: Solid...well made. Great colors.
Cons: None

Perfect from Broadalbin, NY on 06/25/2015 – Verified Buyer
Have been looking for a yellow colander for some time....found it at Wayfair after researching, and love it! Just the shade of yellow I wanted, size is perfect...almost don't want to put it in the cupboard...will try and figure out a way to have it displayed somewhere in kitchen...

Pros: durable, nice size
Cons: none

Exactly as shown! from Conway, SC on 05/15/2015 – Verified Buyer
This colander is well made and looks much better than the cheap ones. I like that it sits hight out of the sink for draining. I haven't decided if I am going to use it or make it a decorative piece because of its unique design.

Pros: bright color and nice weight.
