    I had a customer want to know can you use these to cook in also?

    I'm confused by the customer's question. A colander is for draining. How, exactly, are they hoping to cook in it?

    BTW, my initial reaction is no, that's not what they're designed for.

    Perhaps for use as a steamer...

    My gut reaction is also no. Different solders are heat resistant to different temperatures/times and an item make for cooking would have to withstand longer sessions of higher heat than a colander is usually exposed to. But if she really wanted to know, you could write to the test kitchen and ask.

    And if she's looking for a steamer, we have one of those, too.

    No. We asked in the test kitchens and they said that they were not designed to be used in that way.
