Info: Available in 2 Colours; One with a Slightly Larger Scoop
The name says it all: the Scoop Colander is a large* serving scoop with holes in it, to allow for colander-like, immediate drainage of hot liquids or oils when you fish something out of your pot to serve it, such as dim sum, dumplings, or perogies; potatoes or vegetables; stir fry items; or even pasta (particularly the short-cut, decorative cuts, and stuffed varieties).
The Joseph Joseph Scoop Colander eliminates both the need to lift heavy pots or pans in order to drain the boiling water or hot oil from your food before you can serve it (leave that to the washing up person, after it's cooled!), and the need to wash both a strainer or colander and a separate serving utensil. It's dishwasher safe; safe to use with non-stick cookware; and has a large opening on the end for hanging.
* This utensil is over 13 inches long altogether; the scoop head on the original green model is over 5.5" long, up to 4-3/4" wide, and 2" at its deepest point.
In the new 'Plus' model with the updated design, the handle is the same length (but has an oval-shaped hanging loop, rather than a circular one), but the scoop is about 1/8th of an inch deeper and 1/4-inch wider at the back, and the 3-inch wide main bed is also about 1/4 inch wider. It also has two small hooks on the front underside of the scoop, so it can be perched flat over a pot to drain (as shown in the right-hand photo, below).
