Recommendations for Rice Colander / Strainer
Does anyone have a good recommendation for a rice colander / strainer? I have been considering the Frieling collapsible colander but I’m not sure if rice will slip through the perforations. Thanks!

I agree with AntoniaJames and Nancy, and suggest a versatile fine-mesh sieve instead of a colander (the large holes will definitely let all your rice fall through). This nesting set from de Buyer has three sizes—I use the largest for rice and stock, the medium for hot pot, and the smallest for powdered sugar. Hope that helps! https://food52.com/shop/products/6864-de-buyer-stainless-steel-strainer-set-of-3
f you subscribe to the "get multiple use out of every tool" theory, consider getting also a colander that fits in your pots, that can be used for other-than-rice...vegetables, pasta, steamed dumplings.
