I have a few colanders I use all the time for straining pasta or washing fruits and vegetables, but they are all either metal, plastic or silicone and I have often thought there must be a better material to make these essential tools out of. Well, there is and it is ceramic – like the Sheldon Ceramics Stoneware Colanders I found from the fine folks at Nickey Kehoe.

About the Sheldon Ceramics Stoneware Colanders from Nickey Kehoe:

“These colanders are hand thrown on the potter’s wheel and hand carved with a delicate, functional design. Perfect for straining your favorite vegetables and pastas. This functional and decorative bowl can go from sink to table! The body is a raw stoneware clay. A beautiful white glaze decorates the interior of the bowl, giving the piece a classic lightness of color. We mix all of our glazes in studio using all natural, non-toxic, lead-free materials. Each bowl is fired twice. The final firing is a cone 10 high reduction atmosphere. This allows the piece to be highly durable, microwave and dishwasher safe.”
