Colander & Bowl is made of elastic plastic material, and was developed as a tool to cook the staple food of Japan – rice. The specially designed vertical slim structure efficiently drains the water during rice washing. Moreover, because they can be nested together, you get cooking prep done more smoothly. The advanced technology and development of the new material combines both elasticity and high heat resistance, thus enhancing its usefulness. Rice washing is intrinsic to traditional Japanese cooking. Colander & Bowl aims to pass the authentic and sustainable way of Japanese tradition through to future generations.
