Great to have a choice of sizes, easy to use and store
21 March 2017
I brought this set last year as I loved the colour and the fact there were three of them. I am now getting rid of the large one as it is so impractical- (and this is probably down to me not thinking through the fact the colander was not round!) . When I strain pasta/potatoes etc I generally want to set the colander back on the saucepan - the shape of this one does not allow it -despite tipping it slightly, it also means saucepan lids can't be put on top of the strained contents to keep the heat in. A shame as the quality is excellent, just a shame about the shape.
Thank you for your review and we'll be sure to pass your suggestion on to our Buyers.

My dog needs a special diet of chicken and rice and until I got these, I was forever washing my existing colanders. The smallest is perfect for packet rice and the medium for draining and washing his chicken; the largest one is used for everything else.Nesting too is great for saving on limited cupboard space.

Very handy, the different shades of green are lovely, easy to keep clean and store. The sizes are good and cater well from a single portion to larger amounts when preparing for freezing or preserving.

This review is for an older version of this product
There's a reason why so many kitchen utensils are lime green: it's a fresh, funky and happy colour, and I always relish purchasing kitchen items in this shade. These colanders are no exception: and not only are they a gorgeous hue, they're the perfect size and shape for washing all kinds of fruit and veggies, and stack neatly so as to maximise space available in your cupboards (useful for small/galley kitchens). The handles are useful, the plastic is easy to clean, and at just £12.79 they're great value. I hope Lakeland don't stop stocking them, as I'd happily buy another set in the future.

Some time ago I purchased the middle size of these colanders for my half bowl sink. It is without doubt the most useful item in my kitchen. I wanted to purchase the same item for my elderly mother but I have now found out that I would need to purchase the stacking set. Whilst the stack would be great in my kitchen for someone who lives alone the large colander would not be used. Would it be possible for the items to be sold separately? I am sure many elderly customers would use the two smaller collanders. Otherwise a great product and space saver.
Thank you for placing your review. We've passed your suggestion for them to be sold separately on to our buying team.

I like the different sizes and they way they nestle together so can hang from one hook but the large anti slip ring fell out weeks ago and the medium one fell out today. They won`t go back in so am left with good colanders but no longer anti-slip
Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry the anti slip ring has fallen off. We'll be in touch shortly to help.

I had been looking for a long time for a colander which would fit in my half sink, so when I found these I really wanted one. I was hesitant because I thought the two smaller ones were unnecessary - how wrong! Since I bought them I find all three sizes indespensible - I use both the large one and the medium one in my half sink, depending on quantity of food, and I use the small one for eg draining canned sweetcorn, tuna etc. I use all three sizes regularly and at least one of them every day. Like many other reviewers, the ring in the bottom fell out quite quickly, but I don't miss it.

I bought this set as I love the colour (matches my kitchen) & the idea of them nesting 2 save space. However I have just used for the first time, draining spaghetti - but it goes straight through the holes! I'm sure they will be great for other things though

Safe when draining pasta, potatoes etc as they sit in the sink and don't get hot. Stores away neatly and easy to clean.

I bought these in Lakeland's shop in Cardiff. I thought it was going to be a gimmicky item where I would only use one colander at the most. Not so all three colanders are so useful.I'd recommend them as a good buy.

These are fab and light weight. I find them so easy to use and would recommend to anyone who cannot lift anything too heavy. I like the first lady have had a problem with the large one in that the non slip ring has fallen out of the bottom. It doesn't stop its functioning but seems odd that its happened to only the larger size. I use the small one alot for individual portions or to rinse fruit etc. very versatile
Thanks for placing your review.I'm sorry you've experienced a problem with the non slip ring. I'll be in touch to discuss.

Great product but like others I found that after the second use the rubber grip ring around the bottom will not go back into the large or medium colander, so a bit disappointing. Great sizes but a shame there is not one in the set with small holes for washing rice.
Thanks for taking the time to write your review. I'm sorry to learn of the problem you've had. I'll be in touch shortly.

Love these :-) The large size is perfect for the main sink, the middle one is perfect for the 1/2 sink & the ladle like one is great for fishing out poach pods & boiled eggs. They are very stable and also easy to clean. So grateful that they stack well & take up minimal room. Like other reviewers I have found the non-slip ring on the base falls out & then can't be replaced but it's a minor annoyance as it doesn't really affect the products perfomance.

We too have the same problem - these are really handy things to have but the ring has come off the larger colander and we cannot get it to stay back on.
I'm sorry to learn of the problem you've had with the non-slip base. I'll be in touch shortly.

Very useful set of colanders, easy to clean and store. Only bad thing: I had the anti-slip ring falling out of the large one as I read happened to someone else and even if it does not affect the effectiveness of the product, it is a bit annoying.
Thanks for placing your review.

This is a great trio to have in the kitchen. I have osteo arthritis in my hands and anything which makes cooking easier is welcome. These especially hit the mark due to their lightness and hand-friendly grips. However, like a previous reviewer I have only had these since January and the anti-slip ring has fallen out of the large one and I can't get it back in place.
Thanks for placing your review. Sorry for the problem. I'll be in touch shortly to help.

So pleased with these items. No more struggling with a round colander in a half-sized sink when the main sink is being used.

the rubber base to the big colander falls out overtime its washed and now i cant get it back in so it isn't slip fast. also would have been good to have a hanging hole in the little one. only bought it in august!
Thanks for placing your review. Sounds as though you may have a faulty one. I'll be in touch shortly to help.

Beautiful product, good craftsmanship and an excellent idea for storing. The colours are bright and cheery and the colanders are really effective.
