Rachael Ray Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe 8qt. Covered Oval Pasta Pot
I love this pasta pot!
This is a GREAT design as the long pasta goes in all in one piece right away. No having to push down the ends of the pasta as in a round pot. I would like to try some different foods in here as well, but have only used it for pasta so far. I love Rachael Ray!
Buy Even If you don't cook....
I don't cook a lot but when I saw this pot I wanted to cook in it. Its beautiful to look at and even if you don't cook much you look like a professional using the pot. I was sold on the spot with just using it to boil pasta I like the fact that everything lays flat. I also purchased the matching pot. This is my first purchase of any of Rachel Ray's products and I'm very pleased. It provides even cooking and cleans up very easily
I love this pot!
I come from a long line of Polish & Ukrainian cooks. As many people know we love our kielbasa. The only problem was that rings of kielbasa are made & hung in the smokehouse only to become more oval in shape! How do you boil oval rings of goodness in a round pot? It would always break and become dry. Thank God for Rachel! With this pot our kielbasa is always perfect. Of course I always use it for my pasta, and I know I'll find more good uses for it along the way. Thank you Rachel!
Why does this pan have a non stick coating?
I had misunderstood and thought this pan was hard anodized cookware .( without non stick) I am keeping this expensive pan because it is a fast and easy shape to cook pasta. I wish I could have found an oval pan that would hold pasta that was hard coat enamel or stainless. I have to say Rocco was a very honorable chef who is the only one who offered Stainless cookware on The Q. I don't know why Rachael could not offer a safe cookware for this product. I have decided to keep it but will not cook anything but pasta in it...integrity and high standards to the public safety should be a high consideration. Very disappointed in Rachael..
I had the other oval pot with the long handle and love it. Now I have this wonderful pot that's perfect for pasta... Both in Rachael orange! Very cool.
You Will Love It
I purchased this pot in a set over a year ago, and I have used it more than any other pot since then. It is wonderful! The oval shape is perfect for spaghetti. I also use it for all my soups, stews, etc. It is well worth purchasing. I love mine!
I received this pot as a Mother's Day gift. I used it for the first time today - I cooked some pinto beans. They cooked well and tasted good. The cleanup was simple - a couple of drops of dawn and the pot still looks new.
I recently purchased a new stove, it is a gas stove with the 5th burner, being long and narrow. I had known Rachael Ray had Oval pots in her cooking line. I decided on this one. It is perfect for my stove, and it leaves room to cook on the other burners. I have not tried it with pasta yet, but I am sure I will like it.
I recently bought this pan for my brother-in-law. He has another Rachael Ray pan. I knew how much he lied it so I bought him the larger one. He loves it. Food doesn't stick to and it is so easy to clean. I am so glad he liked it as much as he does.
Pricey But Nice
I just received this pot in the blue and I just love it. I needed a pot for spaghetti and corn on cob and this is perfect. I originally ordered this same pot äs is" but had to return it because of big scrape on the bottom. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the price. I really think this is overpriced. The äs is"price is more in line with what the first quality price should be.
Great size -
Great for pasta. I used mine for gumbo. I love the large size and see through lid. The red handles were a nice touch and my lid fir on just fine. No [problems. I had quick delivery too. Pour pot will come in handy when I need to drain out the pasta water.
made me love to cook again
I have been looking at this pot for a while but didn't want to spend the money as I have a million other pots already but since I recently started making lasagna I really wanted that oval shape so the pasta all fits in the pan. I have no regrets except that I didn't purchase it earlier. This pot has made me want to start cooking again. It is perfect. I can do soups, stews and pasta. My kids are younger and it's difficult to make things they like. They tend to love soups and stews and anyway I can get veggies into a meal without complaint is a god send to me and making soups and stews is so easy in this pot. Thanks Rachel for making is a separate purchase as I already have a ton of other pots and this is the one I am reaching for most since I got it. Totally love it. It heats well and evenly and clean up is a breeze, even my husband commented on how easy it is to clean, since I cook and he does the clean up. Thanks again, if you like to cook get this it will make you love cooking!!!!
