wash your fruit and have a handy display in one piece. It's the usual Alessi quality and the only con is the price but it was worth it for us.
would buy again and again

We are giving a Colander Fruit Bowl to each of our daughters' families as Christmas gifts. We had one when they were growing up (and still do) and we all loved having berries or grapes or cherries ... ripe figs ... or most anything from it. It sat next to the kitchen sink and was in constant use. Now they will have one for their children to grow up enjoying good food from. Love it !
