Best collapsible colandersThere is a variety of collapsible colanders and strainers that can make your life in the kitchen a lot easier. Some call them foldable colanders also. It is basically the same thing.
Difference between a colander and a strainer
There is a difference between a colander and a strainer and to be hones I has no idea about that either.
A colander can be a strainer but a strainer can not be a colander.
A colander most of the time is use to strain and rinse of larger cuts and that it why it has larger holes.
A Strainer is most of the time made of mesh and is more used for finer particles.
This is however no exact science and just a rule of thumb.

      perfect fitting over the counter fold able colander
      (Click Here For Info)

      Available in the four colors: blue, green, orange and red to fit your kitchen decorum.

      The heat resistance to 122 degrees makes it dishwasher safe. This colander is BPA free and I would never buy plastic with BPA so that is great.

      With 17 inch folded and the expanding option to over 25 inch it will fit any sink. The depth is 4.5 inches and all together it has a 6 QT capacity.

      We all see the advantage of having a collapsible colander over the sink. It is so easy to use and we do not have to hold it. The edge just rest on the side of the sink and we have both our hands free.

      More about collapsible colanders

      The advantage is easy to see, they do not need a lot of space to store and in a kitchen there is never enough storage room it seems.
      Some people say it is better to by a collapsible colander set to have more sizes available, but that needs more storage space and would defeat the purpose od having a foldable or collapsible colander.
      My opinion is that a collapsible colander over the sink is in many cases adjustable to the size of the sink and is more versatile in its use. But again this is a personal preference.
