I am a big fan of Italian food – lasagna, macaroni, baked ziti – I love pasta and all of the variations. One thing I do not like about cooking pasta is carrying a big pot of boiling water from my stove to the sink and pouring it into a strainer – the steam always scalds me, and more often than not, I end up tossing some of the pasta into the sink my mistake!
When I heard about the Bialetti Pasta Pot, I immediately thought to myself “I need that.” I used my Bialetti Pasta Pot for the first time this weekend, when I made pasta and Italian sausage for my family for dinner.
First of all, I adore the colors of these pots! They are beautiful and look so pretty sitting on my stove – so pretty, in fact, that I didn’t want to put it away after I washed it after dinner! I received the blue one, but they also come in other equally pretty colors: Purple Passion, Blue Cheer (the one I have) and Orange Spice. Priced at only $34.95, you really can’t afford not to buy one! How chic is it to have a gorgeous, colorful pot sitting on your stove? It’s almost like kitchen decor!
The Pasta Pot is part of the Trends line at Bialetti, and features non-stick interior & silicone lacquer exterior, and heat-resistant handles. As much as I love a good non-stick pot, I have to say that my favorite thing about it is the beautiful, bright color. Bialetti markets the colorful Pasta Pots as “cookware with flaire” for home cooks that want to express themselves.
Does that describe you? Honestly, even if expressing yourself in your kitchen isn’t your main priority, this pot will still be a great addition to your cookware. It makes straining pasta so easy.
Step 1: Simply cook your pasta as usual.
Step 2: Cover the pot with the lid.
Step 3: Lock the lid into place.
Step 4: Just empty the water through the side with the holes! It’s that easy!
