A colander looks like a bowl with little holes in it. It is used to drain food like pasta. The pasta will stay inside the bowl and the water will drain out. The collander is also known as a kitchen sieve.

How to heat cooked potatoes for mashed potatoes

hi Judy.
Put in the large pot as you peel and slice so they don't turn brown. Be sure water covers the potatoes by 2 inches, on medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce to medium-low heat, cook the potatoes for 20 minutes until the potatoes are soft and fork tender. Turn off the heat, and drain well in a colander.24 Nov 2015

I added too much salt to my Waldorf salad. How can I fix it

You can do it two ways.

Put it in a colander and run cold water over it to wash the mayonnaise off, and then start again.


You can double the quantity.

We have a rock tumbler and have lost the instructions. How long are we to tumble each stage? I assume that the sand goes inside the tumbler with the rocks. We need some directions.

Fill the barrel most of the way with stones, add coarse grit, add enough water to just cover the stones and then clean where the lid seals carefully. Seal it up and run it for a week, dump everything into a colander and rinse. Don't run that mud down your drain because it will plug it mightily, run it outside.

Do the same process with the fine grit, run it for another week and rinse and admire.

I got a layer of white cloudy film on my dishes after normal wash

Doing a full vinegar cleaning of the diswhasher is a good start, and every 6 months or so if you have hard water.
But, I have proven that using ultra-cheap dishwasher powder will cause this problem too. Recommend after you do the cleaining with white vinegar through a quick cycle with no detergent, you use only a brand name powder (like Cascade or Electrosol) and see if problems persist.
If problems remain, the heating element has probably failed. Once it is replaced, you will see a dramatic improvement. Good Luck!
