Rachael Ray Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe 8qt. Covered Oval Pasta Pot
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!!!!
You Rock Rachel
I purchased this pan for the first time a couple of years ago. I ordered one for myself and one for my daughter. The generous size of the pan makes it easy to cook large amounts of food and not worry about clean up as it is so easy to clean. As for the pasta, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!! Pasta pots are tall and you still need to get the pasta to bend. With this pan, problem solved. I found that there were so many times that I needed another one, so, I ordered another one. This is a pan that I can't live without !!!
I'm a little overdue writing this review. However I love this pot. It is so versatile I use it not only for pasta, for sautéing and for making roast in the oven everything comes out juicy and delicious. Cleanup is super easy. Plus no more breaking up your spaghetti in half. It's a great addition to my kitchen I just love it.
Use It Everyday! :)
I'll be totally honest; I have some safety concerns with non-stick cookware, but I love this pot. I use it everyday, with silicone or bamboo utensils, and its great! It's well made and cleans up easily by hand. I feel it's safe, and with the quality of construction I absolutely recommend this item. It's a wonderful pot for a big family like ours!
