These were 'loosely' intended as a Christmas gift for my daughter-in-law, as she absolutely loves my pasta pot with a built-in, locking strainer lid, but I will now keep these for myself instead. IMO, the quality here simply isn't gift-worthy.
I'm not crazy about the sharp posts that protrude from the side of the pot to catch the lid for locking, plus the fit is not very tight...shaking the pot while draining can actually shake the lid lose enough to fall off into the sink. Plus the lid itself has cheesy cut-out slots to slid over the posts, not impressed with that either. I DO love the stainless steel finish (even with the ding it encountered from the manufacturer as their packaging is not great) =( as well as the aluminum encapsulated bottom and overall low profile. I also love the size of the small pot. They were in a big need of a good scrubbing too...there was a tremendous amount of factory grime left on them straight out of the box - unlike anything I've ever seen - made in China!
My old aluminum pasta pot has a non-stick finish that eventually chipped and peeled off - not ideal - not sure what the yahoos designing these products are thinking! But what I LOVE about the old pot is the locking lid with a lip built into it that slides over the lip on the pot - no pegs - nothing to scrape your hands on, or slice-up your sponges with and difficult to clean.
With cooking supplies - you get what you pay for - this rarely varies.
If you're looking for an inexpensive set, I do recommend this product.
I love my pasta pots. Well made, and locking lids make draining easy. I also use the smaller pot for potatos works great. I would recommend to anyone who likes pasta, but good for other stuff also. Great Price.
I bought this set to replace an older pasta pot set that I had that was worn and starting to rust. This set is stainless steel and is nice looking, but it works very well and makes cooking and draining pasta easy with no rusty water or cleanup.
Very happy with this purchase.
These pots save having to grab a colander every time you need to boil something and drain off the water. they work not only for pasta, but for blanching vegetables for freezing, straining stock, and many other uses. Just the right size, too, for a two person household.
