You can easily wash vegetables, pasta, noodles, fruits, and strain the excess water from the drainer bowl while retaining the solids within. Well perforated, the drainer is equipped with a movable lid that shelters the contents inside it while draining. The attached movable lid assists in using the drainer for the storage of fruits and cut vegetables, thus preventing insects from contaminating the food. The built-in strainer gives you a quick and easy transition from bowl to a colander. Small holes quickly drain water without any grains getting caught in them or escaping. Washing and straining had never been so easy with this product.
