Quick Tip : Use a Colander for Fruit + My Favorites

Quick tip: use a strainer for fruit + My Favorites – Clean Mama

September 24, 2021

I have been storing fresh fruit on the counter in a decorative colander for years – I love the utilitarian yet functional atmosphere it gives the kitchen. I also think it will keep fruit fresher longer as the airflow through the holes in the colander is increased.

My aqua sieve cracked a few weeks ago and I went looking for it. I found a large white ceramic strainer and thought you might want to see it, plus a couple of other favorites I found in my search.

I ended up going with this strainer from Crate & Barrel – I love the simple lines and look and the slightly creamy color. It looks great in the kitchen.

I’ve put together a few more strainers that will create a similar look in case you’re in the market for a new strainer too.

  1. Mila matt white sieve from Kiste & Fass
  2. White coated steel Set of 2 from Amazon
  3. Ceramic sieve by Williams-Sonoma

Do you have a bowl of fruit? Have you tried a colander?
