Food52 x Ekobo Recycled Bamboo Colander & Pour Bowl Set
A common sense colander.
Remember the old recycling slogan, “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”? This bamboo fiber colander-and-bowl set is the physical embodiment of that phrase. The perforated bowl for rinsing fruits and vegetables or draining pasta sits in a slightly larger bowl; the larger bowl has a handle that doubles as a spout, so you can collect the water you’re not using and then use it—whether to water houseplants, wash your floors, or any other household tasks. Plus, the bowl is a handy mixing bowl all on its own: scrambled eggs, pancake batter, and sauces can be easily mixed up and then cleanly poured straight from the handle. The bamboo fiber makes these bowls virtually indestructible, plus, they’re BPA-, PVC-, and phthalates-free. Good for you, good for the earth, good for dinnertime.
