I use a colander daily. The one I like most is an old Tupperware version. Noodles won't stick to it very easily. I wash and rinse all fruits and vegetables and allow them to drain. I vote for a trusty colander.

I think it is best to buy a set of food storage that fit inside each other so you have different sizes but takes up minimal space when not in use. Make sure they are at the very least microwave save. If they are ceramic or glass they should be oven safe also.

In an effort to improve our health we are steaming our vegetables more and more, so our steamer basket is used almost daily. Since it is fairly compact it doesn't take a lot of storage space and it fans out to fit in all my pots large or small so owning one is all you need. Very affordable too.
