What happens when you put a colander back in a pan back on the stove with a burner on for the pan next to it?
Ya. It’s still usable, though we did grab a new one to try out from Ikea today. It’s taller, but instead of a group of holes, it has long thinner slits up the side. We’ll see how that one works compared to this. It’s too bad I melted it, this has been a great colander.
