The problem with colanders is that their wide top makes it hard to pour things out of them after you’ve strained them. The Trap Door Colander solves this problem by letting you pour things out of the bottom. Just strain your pasta, then move the Trap Door Colander over your bowl, pull the handles and the food goes right onto the plate. There’s actually two trap doors and two levers so you can control the portions. No mess on your countertop, no having to use a helper spoon while you awkwardly hold the colander with only one hand, no tongs needed, no problems.
