In Italy, where the kitchen is the heart of the home, where cooking is a passion and where meals bring friends and family together, Bialetti is found in nine of ten households. This is because like every true Italian, cooking is in their soul. And just as Alfonso Bialetti’s Moka Express revolutionized the art of coffee brewing, they’ve been crafting innovations that advance the art of cooking for nearly a century. Bialetti began in Italy, but has become a leading brand around the world because their high-quality products bring simplicity, functionality and beauty to the kitchen. Their advanced technology and distinctive styling combine to create cookware that’s simple to use and simply beautiful. Today, the Bialetti family of products has grown. They bring a multitude of styles and colors to market. But their Italian heritage and passion for cooking live on in every line.
Looking at the Pasta Pot without the lid it appears to be an ordinary pot.
But add the lid and you can see what makes this pot so different. The innovative oval design means you can cook whole spaghetti and lasagna without having to break them. The lids twist and lock design secures the lid safely to the pan for easy straining. The 5 qt. capacity is quite large and since it is made from aluminum it heats up quickly and evenly and the non-stick interior makes for easy cleanup.
Although this is called a Pasta Pot I find it useful for boiling potatoes and other vegetables, virtually any food that needs straining. It is easy to see why the Pasta Pot was one of Oprah’s Favorite Things in 2016.
Bialetti’s manual coffee grinder is considered to be the best performing manual grinder in the market. It’s easy to adjust wheel allows you to adjust for your preferred coarseness, whether course for coffee press, fine for the mocha express or extra fine for Turkish brew. It is designed to utilize less effort, while creating twice the output.
You may be thinking, “I would rather use an electric grinder”, but those do not allow the control over how fine the grind is which can really affect the flavor of your coffee. We also like to grind ours in small batches, enough for a week at a time since although we store our ground coffee in an airtight container it still seems to deteriorate over the course of the month so we only grind what we will use in the near future.
