All-Clad 6-qt. Stainless Steel Pasta Pot
If you’re like us, you’re not only passionate about pasta, you’re a pasta perfectionist. Whatever style you’re making -- from fettuccine to farfalle -- you demand that it be cooked perfectly al dente: tender yet firm, cooked through but retaining a satisfying chew. As a pasta perfectionist, you know that perfectly cooked pasta depends on two important factors: proper cooking time is crucial, of course, but just as important is making sure your pasta has plenty of room in the pot. Without space to move freely as it boils, pasta can turn into a limp, sticky mess. Put another way: your elbow macaroni needs elbow room! The All-Clad 6-qt. Stainless Steel Pasta Pot is the ideal vessel for cooking every kind of pasta. Its large capacity guarantees that pasta has all the space it needs to boil properly and emerge al dente. The generous size also means that you can just as easily make tagliatelle for two or spaghetti for seven. The included 4-quart stainless steel perforated insert eliminates the need for a strainer, so when your pasta is ready, you can simply pull out the insert and let the water drain back into the pot. This method means you can reserve the pasta cooking water (as any professional chef or Italian grandmother will tell you, this starchy water is the secret for thickening your pasta sauce and helping the finished sauce adhere to the pasta.) The perforated insert also adds tremendous versatility, as it turns the pasta pot into a convenient stockpot as well as an ideal vegetable steamer. The pasta pot is made with heavy-gauge stainless steel and features large, sturdy loop handles that allow for easy lifting. With its gleaming polished exterior, All-Clad’s stainless steel pasta pot is as beautiful as it is durable, and will look elegant in your kitchen for years to come. Why We Love It: With its large capacity and extraordinary versatility, this pot is in almost constant use in our kitchen. In addition to making perfect pasta, it’s ideal as both a stockpot and a steamer.
