Stainless Steel Can Colander


No more soggy tuna

For years I wondered why no one had built or designed a way to drain out all of the liquid out of a can of tuna. Then, lo and behold, I found one. This stainless steel can colander is relatively inexpensive and built with a high grade of stainless steel, so it is practically bullet proof and almost impossible to bend. This colander also works on any normal-sized can, but its real magic is its ability to completely drain the liquid out of a can to prevent wet and soggy tuna. Progressive also makes a plastic colander but I wouldn’t recommend it. The stainless steel model isn’t much more expensive and it will last you your lifetime.

You can flip the colander over and use it on regular cans of things like corn or beans or whatever to drain off the liquid. Its cool.
