Sturdy, well made, fit for purpose and easy to use, I've scooped and drained deep-fried chips, roast potatoes, various vegetables - I've put it in the dishwasher - so it does what it says it should

I highly recommend this scoop, I mostly use it when I'm poaching eggs as the egg slides back into the spoon so you can give it a wee shake to drain all the water off without the egg falling off, which was normally the case with my other standard draining spoons. I also find it very useful for draining veg for my son as I just pour the veg into the spoon then run under the cold tap to cool it down for him. Ive not used it in hot oil yet but i read it withstands temps of 250. so It really is a versatile Spoon :) it's great not having to bring out the big colander all the time or use a pot lid to drain ur spuds (if ur anything like me you end up dropping half off them down the sink lol) Its a great yet simple invention & I use it everyday.

For anyone who's ever been irritated at having to use large, often unwieldy, colanders, this device is perfect.

Made of very sturdy plastic, it lets you remove vegetables, potatoes, pasta, etc., from the pan one serving at a time. This saves time and effort when serving a meal. Also, not having to hold a heavy saucepan of boiling water and a colander simultaneously makes it safer and easier for the disabled, the elderly, or those simply with weak wrists/hands.

One thing to note is the size of the bowl - it's smaller than on regular colanders, but it's still a generous size.

If doing just peas/sweetcorn as a side, we usually fill a large breakfast bowl with the veg (enough for 3 people), add boiling water (saves on washing pots!), and then strain the bowl into the colander - so the colander bowl is quite large; the downside is this makes it a bit of a drawer-hog, although it can be hung by the handle if you've a spare hook.

This is a brilliant device which will be used again and again and, though it's corny to say, we wish we'd bought one years ago!

This is an excellent design and an absolute must-have for anyone with a small kitchen or who hates washing up. It does the job, it's very easy to clean, and it saves big colanders taking up space in cupboards or on valuable worktops. Very easy to store in a utensils jar. Full five stars from me.

Does exactly what the description says and does it very well. Would never buy it at full price though as the extra versatility is not worth the big premium. But, delighted with it at the sale price.

This is a great fusion of a collander with a holy spoon. Does not get as messy as a sieve
Perfect for cooking vegetables together & getting just some out early

This scoop is a really good addition to your kitchen tools. It allows you to move & serve a sizeable portion of rice, pasta, peas etc without spilling everywhere!
