Not sure if anyone else has mentioned or even noticed this or not, but tonight while I was packing for a show tomorrow, I placed the smallest colander into the smallest SS Bowl. It doesn't "nest", but it does fit very well for draining purposes! It sits just around the rim- giving an inch or so at the bottom of the bowl to drain liquids. I checked the other 2 sizes. The middle colander doesn't fit AS nicely, but would work. The Larger colander fits very well- just like the small one. So that's a nice perk- IMHO. Sometimes you need to drain something for awhile- sitting in a bowl, or just choose to while you complete another step! Sorry if I'm a little slow on the up-take and am just now noticing this, or if it was mentioned in the PIG. Haven't had time to do much new-product homework.
