Margrethe Nested Colander Set
+ $ shipping surcharge
This colander versions of our best-selling Margrethe bowls from Rosti Mepal are just as sturdy and as useful to have around as their original counterparts ). They've got double handle action, small, precise holes (so no spaghetti slips through), and two sizes for tasks both big and small. The nest up cozily, for an easy fit in any cabinet.
The set of two is available in white, grey, and in a foggy, dreamland blue, only available in the Food52 Shop! Each set includes one 1QT colander and one 3.5QT colander.
And, pssst, fun fact: Designed in Denmark by an industrial designer and architect, Jacob Jensen, the Margrethe bowl was originally launched in 1954, and named for the Danish Queen Margrethe (with the expressed permission of the Danish royal house—how official!).
