Colanderoll / flexible colander roll


In the cramped kitchen, there is lack of space placing kitchen implements. In order to clean a lot of vegetables and fruits, colander is usually one of the large cooking utensils which is difficult to store.

Therefore, I design this “flexible colander roll”, making use of the thick plastic mat with many holes. It can change its shape not only by the weight of water and vegetables but also by the pull of plastic roll. Colanderoll can be use easily in any sinks or pots. After finished using it, by just simply press the button, it will automatically roll back to the cylinder shape which can be stored by using less space of kitchen.
