This pasta pot cost less than 20 bucks and it is wonderful! All of the other pasta lids don't lock so you dump your spaghetti right down the drain! This is also teflon coated and it has held up well. I bought this pasta pot about 3 years ago and I have never used anything else ever sense.

This is a great, versatile cooker. We use it mostly for pastas because of the strainer feature. My daughter-in-law who has difficulty with use of her hands finds it very easy to engage the lid locks and securely drain the pasta. It is also a fairly light weight pan which also makes it easier for her to drain the pasta herself. With other pans she has had to have help to do the draining. This is our second Tramontina nonstick pasta cooker. We happily used the first one for 3 years before someone (Mr. Nobody, of course) used a sharp metal instrument of some kind while cooking and totally scratched up the nonstick coating on the bottom. This was the only place I was able to find a replacement. Thank you!!

I looked all over the Internet for the right sized and type of pasta cooker. What I found was lots of very expensive stainless steel pots with un-insulated handles. Pretty but stainless steel transfers heat very slowly and metal handles and tops require hand protection. Conversely, this pot heats rapidly and has insulated handles.

I have now used it numerous times and love it. For once my wife admits I got it right this time. Never saw water boil so fast. Putting the cover on and taking it off is a non-problem. Can't understand the individual who had a problem. This thing is an absolute gem AND ONLY $20 vs. $100!!!!!!!!!!

Too bad the pot isn't available at this time. Nothing else on the market can compare with it and the price is right at $20.00!!!!

That is all that really matters. If Momma's happy the household is at peace.

Personnally, I don't get the need for a special pot for pasta, but if it makes Momma happy, I'm all for it.
Oh, yeah and it is affordable, but be aware you are getting what you pay for. I wouldn't call this a heavy duty pot, but it is non-stick and it serves the purpose.

When I moved, my pasta cooker got left behind. This is one kitchen must have for me! It's so much easier than having to deal with a pot and colander. Plus the fact the pasta stays hot. This cooker is also great for making sugar syrup, fudge, etc.

I was excited to finally get this item after waiting about a week for it. I opened the wrapping up to try it out a couple days later (when I had time to cook). The lid didn't fit the pot at all, like it was too small in circumference by 1 or 2 mm. I pressed harder to see if it just needed a little strength behind it, and the lid tabs finally made it through the notches and it became completely stuck. it wouldn't even rotate to its proper "locking" position. I had to bend the ears back just to get the lid off again. I'll be contacting the seller for a refund ASAP. Unfortunately since it was from a third party seller it looks like I'm going to eat the shipping cost on a product that didn't even work. I feel like if the manufacturer had tested this unit even *once* they would have caught this problem. Maybe the lid and the pot are made in two different factories.

We've been using this cheap pasta cooker for over 3 years, and it is great. It's nonstick so it's easy to clean, and the lid locks on so that you can strain hot pasta safely. The only problem that I've found is that if you have damaged or warped the pot in any way it might be difficult for the lid ever to work properly. But, hey, at this price it's not that big of a dealbreaker. You might have trouble getting the lid off a few times in the beginning -- just run cold water over the pot until you can get it off. After a few meals, it should go on and come off just fine. Unlike some other straining pot/pasta cookers I've seen, there's very little chance that you'll actually dump your meal out in the sink when you're straining and you won't need kid gloves to strain it. It's a great timesaver and worth the price.

I bought a different style pasta pot by Tramontina at least seven years ago. I don't know if it is still available. I think it has held up quite well to relatively heavy use. My pot is a sauce pan style with a locking lid. There is a little wear to the nonstick coating up near the top, possibly from the cover or stacking with other pots. I would buy other products from this company.
