I really like my big metal colander - but it does take up a lot of storage space. If you need to save space, perhaps the Rösle collapsible colander would work well. It's available in red, green, purple and black - in two sizes.
If you'd prefer another style, take a look at the collapsible colander from Dexas, which sells products under its own brand and also as private labels. You'll see very similar products at Sur La Table, at Macy's (as part of the Martha Stewart collection), and as part of the Chef'n SleekStor collection. Update on August 1, 2014: I'm no longer finding this at Sur La Table or Macy's.
And there are even more colander options! This one comes from Oxo.
Norpro has some "knockdown" colanders, too - three different styles. Update on Aug. 1, 2014: Norpri has a different product now — a steamer/strainer.
And Joseph Joseph takes a different approach with its folding colander.
Another item that takes up a lot of space is a salad spinner. If that's your storage challenge, look at the collapsible salad spinner from Progressive Intl.
