I’ve been keeping fresh fruit on the counter in a decorative colander for years – I love the utilitarian, yet functional feel that it gives to the kitchen. I also think it keeps fruit fresher longer with added airflow from the holes in the colander.

My aqua colander cracked a few weeks ago and I set out on a new search. I found a large white ceramic colander and thought you might like to see it and a couple other favorites I found in my search.

I ended up going with this colander from Crate & Barrel – I love the simple lines and look of it as well as the slightly off-white color. It looks great in the kitchen.

I rounded up a couple more colanders that create a similar look in case you’re in the market for a new colander too.

  1. Mila Matte White Colander from Crate & Barrel
  2. White Coated Steel set of 2 from Amazon
  3. Ceramic Colander from Williams-Sonoma

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