Pasta pots – a treat for pasta lovers!

What is a pasta pot?

Pasta pots are high pots equipped with a strainer (often called a pasta insert). They are usually made of stainless steel and are large in size. A pot for cooking pasta combines the functionality of a stockpot and a colander allowing for easy cooking and draining of pasta without the need to use a colander.

Do I actually need a pasta pot?

If you are a pasta lover, if your kids are pasta enthusiasts and if you cook pasta almost every day, buying a pasta pot will be a good investment. Remember that it can be used without an insert (as a regular stockpot) and that it lets you keep the pasta water that you usually pour out when using a standard colander. Pasta water is very useful for thickening sauces as it is full of starch – never done that? Browse the Internet and check the recipe for Gigi Hadid pasta with vodka!

How do you cook pasta in a pasta pot?

Cooking pasta in a pasta pot is simple and does not require any additional tools. All you have to do is:

  • place the pasta insert in your pot
  • fill it up with water to the appropriate level and bring it to a boil
  • gently add your uncooked pasta and some salt (you can also add a dash of olive oil)
  • turn the heat off when the pasta is cooked to your liking
  • take hot pads or kitchen gloves and grab the handles of the inner pot
  • take the insert out of the pot and hold it over it for a moment, letting the water drain
  • pour the pasta into a bowl or into a pan with a pasta sauce
