Rachael Ray Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe 8qt. Covered Oval Pasta Pot
This pot is deceptively large and can hold a large quantity of pasta, soup, stew, etc. I love the shape and overall look. It cleans up beautifully. Genius design.
oval pasta pot
love the pot fits on my new stove top that has a large oval burner.
The best pasta pot on the market !! Perfect shape for spaghetti just the way Rachael intended it to be.
I purchased this product for my wife since she was always asking me for a good pasta maker pot. I realize that this pot is not only good for pasta, but its also perfect for making Colombian style soups, and to cook tamales as well. It has been with us for more than one year and it is our prefer pot. Needless to say, this pot is never loaned to anyone. Good heat resistant handles and glass top. I recommend it to anyone that enjoys cooking and is looking for a pot that is diverse and it is not round but oval. A big plus when cooking pasta.
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.
