Top customer reviews
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. Mine never has, and I've never stopped to even stir the stuff during cooking. And that really surprised me--why it doesn't clump. But it doesn't.
Improvements? The lifting handles double as clever measures for measuring out spaghetti. Each one measures for two portions. For a single guy like me, I'd like to have seen one that measures for two, and the one on the other side made of a smaller inside diameter to measure for one. I use a quarter though, and its diameter is just about right for me. And if I don't have a quarter, I use two dimes and a nickle...OK, just kidding.
This item is ideal for any single guy like me who 1. hates to cook, 2. loves pasta, 3. is lazy, 4. and hates to clean stuff. But married people, and those with families would enjoy it too. If you tell your friends about it as I have, you'll get interesting reactions--no one can conceive how you can cook pasta in a microwave. But you can. It works. And it works very well.
I would, however, caution users to use an oven mitt, and put a thumb on the cover when draining so the cover stays in place, and the steam doesn't burn you. I didn't, and the steam got pretty hot -- nearly burning me, which is why I gave a five-star product four stars. Bearing my caution in mind, I highly recommend this product based on my experience.
NOTE ADDED Jan. 27: I read reviews complaining of boil overs making a mess. It happened to me only once, not because of a flaw with the Pasta Boat, but because I failed to remember the directions, and I put the drain cover on when cooking the pasta. This caused the water to boil over and make a mess. Now I always remember to cook the pasta without the cover. I have since made many pasta dishes, and the boat has worked effortlessly every time.
I primarily make half and whole boxes of Barilla Plus Angel Hair pasta. The Fasta Pasta maker is OK for half a box, but, I cannot get enough water in it to cook a whole box so the result is pasta all stuck together in a chewy clump on one or both ends.
The Pasta Boat, on the other hand, works very well for both a half box and a full box of the pasta. It also works very well for elbow macaroni.
I have not tried other pasta shapes such as lasagna or egg noodles, etc, So I cannot speak to those other shapes. But, given my experience with both models, I will choose the Pasta Boat every time.
