This post is sponsored by Bialetti and The Original Pasta Pot was provided to me for review purposely I have provided an honest review without bias.
The Original Pasta Pot has been featured in 2016 as one of Oprah’s Favorite Things. A cookware item I believe everyone should have in their possession to prepare delicious pasta dishes. Throw out that old strainer the Pasta Pot offers a 2 in 1 cook then drain convenience. The perfect gift for Mom this upcoming Mother’s Day! Make sure you enter the giveaway to win your very own Pasta Pot.The Pasta Pot is aluminum with a non-stick coat and heats up quickly. Yes, it is dishwasher safe, but I recommend you do not place it in the oven. Bialetti cookware is for all conventional stove tops which include electric, gas, ceramic and glass, not suitable for induction stoves. When using the Pasta Pot for cooking rice or pasta, it’s super easy to use just place whatever your cooking in the pan. Once it ready to drain twist and lock lid securely then tilt to strain.
Bialetti recommends you follow recipes carefully during food preparation to ensure best cooking results. High heat should only be used when boiling only. Use Medium-High for frying, sautéing and searing. Low-temperature setting highly suggested for simmering and warming foods. Always remember when using non-stick cookware do not use metal. I love how easy it to clean after cooking using a cloth nothing rough or aggressive and a little cleaning soap. Please do not use a brillo pad you can destroy the non-stick surface. I can spend my day bragging about how amazing the Pasta Pot is, but honestly experience it for yourself and purchase one.
