Colander + serving bowl
Strain and serve
Ventu is a multi-purpose bowl that allows you to prep, strain, serve, and store—all in one elegant solution. Use it as a colander to remove excess water from pasta, salad greens, fruit, and more. To switch from its straining function to serving is easy: just pop its silicon-sealed base onto the bottom, and save yourself from washing extra dishes.
Two kitchen essentials in one
Its base features a silicone seal and can be added or removed to convert Ventu from colander to watertight serving bowl.
Beauty and brawn
Ventu's sleek design integrates handles and a bamboo base. Melamine provides a porcelain-like feel with the strength of a plastic.
Like all Quirky products, Ventu was invented and influenced by real people like you. Entrepreneur Andrea Zabinski was cooking pasta and found her counters cluttered and her dishwashing time a drag. When she couldn't find a bowl that combined straining, mixing, and serving, she went to a local store to ask around. The clerk recommended she send a rendering of her vision to Quirky. Bingo! This mother of two, CEO, and public speaker now uses her spare time to invent even more.
