I've had one of these for years and bought one recently foor my daughter when she moved into a flat. They are perfect for draining rice (collander holes are too big, sieves are too weak and sag). Rigid stainless steel it won't bend easily so lasts for years and years. Mine fits and balances easily in the 1/2 bit of the sink so I've still got two hands for the kettle of boiling water to wash the rice. Perfect!
