The DELONGHI pasta cooker boasts al dente pasta at the press of a button. Just fill the bowl with water, add salt, and place the pasta in the basket. The pasta is automatically lowered into the water when it boils, stirred to prevent sticking, and finally, drained when cooked. Theres also a sauce-warmer which ensures that a hot sauce will be ready when the pasta is cooked.

The main advantage of the pasta cooker over a regular saucepan is that it automatically lowers the pasta into the boiling water and drains it when finished — so you can set and forget.

I'll buy one when it also grates some cheese for me and sprinkles it on my bolognese sauce.

Until then I think it's just a gimmick ;-)

I've found a review. It doesn't sound very good.

But they did pay $239, not £25.

True, but it does sound like it needs more user input than it claims to need. And the expense was only one of their bad points. They give these as others.

Several parts — more cleaning (all can be washed in the dishwasher).
Heavy, and takes up a lot of bench space.
Still some trial and error involved for cooking al dente pasta (or your preference).
Sauce-warmer doesn’t heat well.
Awkward to fill bowl with water, as it doesn’t sit flat.

Really, what a joke!

Cooking pasta isn't exactly hard is it?
Boil water, add pasta, boil for X minutes, add sauce = done.

Would you really pay £25 for this?

Exactly, i'm a student and if I can cook pasta, and I can, then anyone can. Plus it's much easier to test if the pasta is the way you like when using a pan, and you get nice warm sauce. If you get quick cook penne pasta as I do, because I'm lazy, you can have everything done in 5 to 10 minutes.
#15
This is probably really useful if you've already got a Tefal electric steamer (you know, as opposed to one of those weird saucepans that you boil water in)...

I should ask myself this one question. 'Am I really THAT lazy?' :)

Yay! Common sense prevails. I'm so glad that people are saying "WTF?". I would question people's sanity buying this at £49. Even at £20, it's still just a pot.

Seems to me its the men that are rubbishing the deal, not the ladies:giggle:

I see busy mums with kids to feed and ironing to do liking to get as many little helpers as possible around the kitchen, we men like our gadgets and toys so why should they not have theirs too:thumbsup:

This could be very useful to someone who struggles lifting pots and pans full of boiling water also.

So how would they fill & empty it?
#22
Have to agree with the nay-sayers.

It's a bit like paying good money for an egg-boiling machine or a boiled rice-cooking machine.
Seems like a total waste of money to me.

If it cooked the pasta in record time then it MAY be worth considering.
As it is, I think it's just a gimmick aimed at people with too much money on thier hands, and who like gadgets (regardless of practicality & value for money).

Still, that's just my opinion....
