I am sure that's because this poll lets you vote for more than one option.

I have one and I love it. It isn't any bigger than most colanders. I rarely use the lid, except to sometimes hold it up to a pan to drain it. It doesn't really snap on, but hooks in one spot, and then you hold the handles together. Using it with the lid isn't practical for anything heavy (like a big batch of pasta) but is ok for salad greens or other light things.

You must have read what I wrote before I revised it. I meant that you could vote for more than one option, not that you could vote twice. Sorry--itchy reply finger!

I have one of those stockpots with a perforated insert. You just lift out the insert and let it drain

A colander for me, although I do have a 3QT pot with a strainer if I'm
making a smaller amount.
