Product Description

Cooks, drains, serves and stores. Cooking pasta can be a hassle. The amazing pasta boat makes it faster and easier to make perfect pasta every time right in your microwave oven. It's soooo easy. Just put in the pasta, add water to the serving line, then pop it in the microwave. It's that easy. Pasta boat keeps water at the perfect temperature- it actually does a better job than a pot on a stove. When finished, place on the strainer lid, drain out the water and you're ready to serve. The stay-cool handles are also designed to measure portion sizes of spaghetti and the steamer rack can be used to steam potatoes or vegetables right in your microwave. Pasta boat is one of the most useful cooking products you'll ever own. Take yours home today.

Before I buy anything priced much over $1 (!), I read as many Amazon reviews on it as I can. Because of a few negative reviews for factors that seemed important to me, I almost didn't order it. What a mistake that would have been! I really, really like this item. Although I've only used it to cook pasta thus far, you can steam all sorts of vegetables in it according to the brief cookbook that comes with it, using the included steamer rack. I hate vegetables, so I've never tried it. So my comments apply only to pasta. And after all, this is a pasta boat, and not a vegetable boat. The pasta comes out perfectly; I'd thought this was an item that would take some experimenting to get it right. After all, who ever heard of cooking pasta in a microwave? Following the excellent instructions in the cookbook, it worked well the very first time I tried it. And I'm as lousy and lazy a cook as they come. And I hate cooking in the first place. Which is why I love the pasta boat so much. Why? 1. It's simple to use. 2. The pasta cooks quickly, and it makes excellent pasta. 3. As the hype says, it eliminates that heavy, bulky pot that you'd normally be using. 4. It eliminates use of a colander to drain your pasta. 5. With leftovers, just stick the whole business in your frige to store your leftovers for another time. 6. And for me, the biggie: it's a cinch to clean. I hate washing stuff. I still have dirty dishes and drip pans from Thanksgiving. Maybe someone out there would like to come over and we could have a dish-washing party.

Let me address some of the complaints I recall from some of the other reviews. Some said the lifting handles got hot in the microwave. Mine get warm, but that's the worst it's been. Someone said something about the pasta clumping.

I bought mine from CVS, and I tried it today. I live alone, and HATE to cook, but I love spaghetti. When my husband was alive, I made it often. It was too much trouble to make it just for myself.
I measured out two servings, and cooked it 13 minutes in the microwave.
The pasta came out perfect. I would highly recommend this.

After reading online all the horror stories from people who tried to order the Pasta Boat from a TV ad and were not told of the silly outragious shipping charges till AFTER they placed the order. I went here to Amazon and got it with normal Fedex charges alittle over $3.00. It came yesterday and I tried it today with no complaints. I did stop the micro a minute short of the full time suggested just to check and it was more than enough. I made 2 servings.

I love to cook and I use a huge number of pots and pans every time I entertain. However, I live alone and most of my meals are for two people (I cook dinner for my downstairs neighbor most nights) and I am trying to simplify things so I don't spend as much time cleaning as I do cooking. I use some specialty items like a steamer and a rice-cooker as they help me to concentrate on my main course while some of the sides are doing their thing.

We often have pasta as a side dish or as an entrée. I have two serious pasta pots with strainers that can serve up to ten people. However, when I cook for just two people it is a lot to clean up and to watch over so that they do not overcook or boil-over. I saw the infomercials for this device and was intrigued, but I never order from T-V because of the way that they package things together and include a large shipping charge for each item. I have Amazon Prime so I am always looking for Prime offers and I get just what I want and no more. I decided to give this a try.

The product itself is fairly simple. A plastic container with a straining lid and a steamer insert... that's it! The instructions include cooking times for different types and amounts of pastas. It is a good guideline and should be considered as a starting point. I found that I need to adjust the time for my microwave and for the way that I want my pasta to turn out. It was a short learning curve and I am really enjoying the ease of use that this pot offers.

When I am making a dinner for two or four people and pasta is a part of the meal, I now use the Pasta Boat. There is no compromise on quality, it just makes it easier. If I am making pasta for a larger group I bring out my big pots, but for smaller amounts this is much nicer.

First off, let it be said that I've always hated cooking pasta. Find the pot that's always in the far reaches of the cabinet which makes a lot of noise that traumatizes the resident cat. Boil the water and then watch it while the pasta cooks so it doesn't boil over. Then, find the colander which is also never easily accessible. The whole process was just annoying and I cooked pasta infrequently. Enter the "Pasta Boat." I had read a good review earlier in the week and figured since it was inexpensive I'd give it a try. Just finished cooking 6 servings of elbows that turned out perfectly. Read the book, follow the instructions...a no brainer. If you're cooking for ten maybe not so good, but it's wonderful for one or two people. Not a thing I'd change about it. I'm delirious with glee!
