colander vs. strainer: What's the difference?
Colander refers to a type of strainer. A strainer is any kitchen tool, typically with small mesh holes, that can filter, strain, or sift one thing from another. Colander refers to a large metal or plastic bowl with a perforated bottom, most frequently used for draining water away from produce, pasta, and other similarly-sized items.
