Kitchen Utensil - Colander

Wikepedia says:

A colander is a bowl-shaped kitchen utensil with holes in it used for draining food such as pasta and rice. Conventionally, colanders are made of a light metal, such as aluminium or thinly rolled stainless steel, but some colanders are made of plastic or silicon. A colander is pierced with a pattern of small holes (or slots in plastic colanders) that let the liquid drain through, but retain the solids inside. It is sometimes also called a strainer or kitchen sieve. 

It is an important utensil for lazy cook - for reheating, steaming and draining. I use the folded one so it can be contained by a wide brim pot. I like these bun sold at the supermarket that have red bean paste filling and the bun is in different color and texture - I like the rough it seems made of wheat bun but violet in color. So stored in the ref and I would steam at least 2 pieces for light snacks and even desert too. So for my frozen/cold dishes it is easy to defrost/thaw them by steaming it and then after if it needs baking then  I  would use the oven toaster. Fast and easy for the lazy cook - steam and bake, reheat and eat.
