This is one IKEA product we’re in love with:

KLOCKREN Colander, silicone – $9.99

Any genius kitchen gadget that’s multi-functional, doesn’t take up a lot of room, and it just downright handy to have is a total winner in my book! This IKEA colander is collapsible and stores flat, plus it can also pull double duty! Either open it all the way and use it as a strainer or collapse it halfway so you can steam some perfect veggies on the stove.

Here are some other reasons we think you’ll love this gadget:

Dishwasher safe

Withstands temps up to 428°F

Stable bottom

Ensures that it will stand evenly



Totally collapsible

Easy to store
Doesn’t take up much space
Stores flat

Made of silicone rubber

Safe for food

It’s only $9.99!

Here’s why Cass from our team loves her colander:

“I actually bought this silicone strainer on a total whim (like most other purchases made at IKEA. LOL!) and it quickly has become one of my most used kitchen multi-taskers!

And hello… it’s only $9.99!

It’s so functional, too! I love to use it as a strainer to wash produce and as a steamer basket. I even sometimes use it as a garbage bowl for scraps when I cook, which has become incredibly handy!

Folding it up is simple too and it saves a ton of space in the dishwasher. We keep it hung for easy access – it’s such an awesome little gadget for small kitchens like mine!”

Here’s what others had to say about their IKEA KLOCKREN Colander:

“I bought this for my camper and it was the best choice ever! It fits right beside my collapsible dish rack. If you’re needing to conserve space like me, this product is the perfect thing for you!”

– Kacey

“I totally love this colander! I actually hung it on the inside of my cabinet door for easy access. It’s such a great value and so handy to have around!”

– Shannon

“This thing is so cool! I love that it’s adjustable so it fits many different size saucepans. If I want to steam veggies, just place a lid on top and for pasta, it works as a wonderful colander. I love that the material cools down quick and folds up flat for storage! I was surprised I liked it so much since it’s just a colander, but this thing is great!”
