Bialetti, the leading Italian coffee and cookware brand known for its forward thinking in both innovation and style, recently announced the new 2012 colors for its original line of Pasta Pots. Sizzling Red, Smoky Gray and Magnetic Blue join the colorful line up of pasta pots that include Purple Passion, Blue Cheer and Orange Spice. Reinforcing Bialetti’s commitment to quality, innovation and style, the world’s original 5-quart Pasta Pots feature a distinctive oval shape that is designed to handle the length of uncooked spaghetti and lasagna noodles without breakage. When in use, the Pasta Pots feature an innovative lock-on lid with built-in strainer, eliminating the need for a colander. The aluminum pots feature heat-resistant Bakelite handles and a non-stick interior for easy clean-up.
My thoughts? I LOVE my PastaPot. I’ll be honest — I’ve never had one before. Instead, I had giant colanders that took up a ton of room in my kitchen. Needless to say, those are being turned into sandbox toys now! I have made spaghetti in my PastaPot several times now. The noodles don’t stick, and I can’t tell you how much I love NOT dirtying up something else I have to wash. I can made an entire box of spaghetti in the PastaPot (first plus), and I can drain the spaghetti with the strainer lid by myself (second plus). You also don’t have to break your spaghetti in half to make it fit (third plus!). It isn’t too heavy even with an entire box of spaghetti. I have made other noodles in there also, and it just works great. Another added plus is that my PastaPot matches my kitchen!
Since I am in love with my PastaPot, I have arranged for one of you to win one! Here’s what you need to do:
