  • Collapsible

    Smart strainer is a clever, collapsible colander which is much easier to store.

  • Steamer Too

    The clever design functions as a strainer in addition to a steaming basket when you need it.

  • Folds

    The full-size colander can fold flat and then store itself in a drawer when you aren't using it.

  • Flexible

    It flexes which makes it easy to clean, easy to pour right onto your plate without using any spoons and without spilling. No longer will you still your food into the sink. You can quite literally grab both of the handles between your forefinger and your thumb, squeeze them together with the flexible metal design, and pour the food right onto your plate.

  • Handles

    The pouring handles conveniently double as the hanging hooks if you want to hang it somewhere in your kitchen.

  • Dishwasher Safe

    When you are done it rinses off easily and can be thrown in the dishwasher.

Save Time

Due to the fact that it is flexible and can be used for multiple things, if you don't already have a colander or steamer this can save you a lot of time. Time that would be spent preparing your food and a lot of money that would go into buying those items. Flexible in its design means you don't have to transfer food from one colander to another serving plate or dirty something like a spoon or fork. Instead you could simply push the handles together then poured out onto your plate.


  • No More Waste

    You never have to worry about wasting food that accidentally falls down the drain when you're trying to strain which saves you money.


  • Not if You Have One

    If you already have a colander there's really no need to invest in a replacement colander. Unless you are truly pressed for space and somehow have no place to put your non-collapsible colander in your kitchen.

  • No Variety

    The only option is the metal design with the red handles so unfortunately you cannot find other sizes, other colors, or other materials.

  • One Size

    One size is the only size available. This means that it might fit differently in different hands that you have or it might not fit all. Be prepared for the fact that it may sit lower in smaller pans.

How it's Different from Competitors

By comparison to other colanders on the market one of the main benefits or vantages you are afforded is the fact that it does collapse down for flat storage. It is not entirely flat like a flat sheet of paper but it is flat enough to go in a modern drawer in your kitchen or to hang somewhere above the stove top. Other colanders which have advanced features like sticky feet that hold onto the counter top with a spigot that opens directly into the sink still don't have a collapsible feature that this one has. This means that no other colander on the market is able to fold up and be conveniently stored quite like this one. You will not find one like it.
