Gino D'acampo Stainless Steel 24cm Pasta Pot by Gino D'Acampo

I bought this to cook pasta. The idea is that you put the pasta in the colander and then insert the colander into the pan containing your water. Once it is cooked you can just lift up the colander and drain the pasta without all that dangerous slopping about of boiling water. It does this fine and the handles stay cool enough to touch. The shiny steel of the pan looks nice.

Jokes were repeated, whole chunks of text copied and pasted as a summary, even though the action had just happened. With a good ruthless edit this might make a decent summer read
