Q & As

John Lewis The Basics Colander, 22cm 4.2 5 5 5
Just right The colander does the job perfectly, No need to buy an expensive one. 16 December 2014
A good buy This is just what I was looking for and at a very reasonable price. I am very pleased with my purchase . The colander is made of sturdy plastic and suitable for most things, apart from placing on top of hot saucepans. It is a perfect replacement for my old one which had seen better days. Difficult to find anything similar anywhere else. Thank you, John Lewis. 03 September 2014
Can't find one like it anywhere This product was exactly what I wanted. There are many colanders on the market, but virtually none in plastic There are times such as picking fruit or vegetables from the garden, when the plastic colander is invaluable. This is well made, has lots of holes and at a very good price 01 November 2013
False economy - wish I hadn't I really would have liked a top quality stainless steel colander, but as I can't afford it right now, I thought this would be as good as any other. But - of course - it is horrid. If you rest it on top of the pan you've just cooked in, the plastic melts onto your pan, the rough edges of the holes get food and washing up sponge stuck on them, and generally it is already looking manky and won't last long. 30 October 2013
Great value, does the job I'm very pleased with this product. It works, it looks fine, and it is a good size. I'm going to buy some more! 03 October 2012
