Pasta Perfecto is a dish that you can use to cook pasta that's not too crunchy and not too mushy in the microwave in minutes. With it, you'll be able to make a wide variety of pasta dishes such as tortellini, ravioli, penne, and macaroni with cheese, and this container even comes with a recipe guide to help you out. Pasta Perfecto is dishwasher safe, has handles that stay cool to the touch, and contains a built-in strainer.
The cost of Pasta Perfecto is $14.99 plus $4.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Pasta Perfecto at the discounted price of only $4.99 for a total price of $24.97. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at pastaperfectooffer.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Pasta Perfecto and has taken down the website. Pasta Perfecto may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
Once your pasta is inside this container and water has been added, the container's special inner reservoir will ensure that the water circulates evenly as it is heated to a boiling point. Therefore, all pieces of pasta will be cooked evenly without being over- or undercooked—you won't end up with some crunchy noodles and others that feel like goo.
To begin using Pasta Perfecto, you'll need to measure out the portion of pasta you desire by using the two holes located at one end of the container. If you've got noodles that aren't long and skinny like the standard variety, and you aren't sure how to measure them, consult the included recipe guide.
After you've determined how much pasta you have, put the noodles in the container and fill it to the appropriate fill line, which will depend on the amount of pasta you've got. You do not need to fill the container with boiling water, as the water will come to a boil while it's in the microwave.
Once your pasta and water are in your container, put the lid back on and place the container in the microwave. If you're not sure how long to heat it for, once again consult the included recipe book. You may find that you'll need to experiment with this amount of time, as some microwaves are more powerful than others.
When your pasta's done being cooked, test it to see if it tastes the way you want it to. If you find it at all crunchy, simply put it back in the microwave for a minute or two longer. Otherwise, use the built-in strainer that you'll find on the end of the lid, opposite the measuring holes, to strain the noodles. After that, your pasta will be ready to be garnished with the appropriate sauce, vegetables and / or cheese and then served.
Pasta Perfecto will effectively cook either a small portion of pasta suitable for a couple or individual, or a larger portion that will feed a handful of people. That means you'll be able to make enough pasta to feed an average-sized family or enjoy it on your own without leftovers if you're flying solo.
Each of these containers is made of clear, translucent plastic, so you'll be able to see your pasta within it before, during and after the cooking process. You won't be in the dark as to what's happening with your meal!
You'll be able to safely put one of these containers in your dishwasher after each use, so you won't need to spend time washing it out by hand in the sink.
Pasta Perfecto is free of the potentially harmful chemicals BPA and BPS, which are still found in some products made of paper or plastic.
Each container comes with a recipe guide that will advise you on how to use this device as effectively as possible and provide you with some mouth-watering recipes.
Besides pasta, this container can also be used for cooking vegetables. Once you're able to evenly cook vegetables using just this dish and your microwave, you may find yourself eating them more often.
With each Pasta Perfecto, you'll also receive a compact cheese grater that'll help you dress up your pasta dishes with the perfect portion of Parmesan cheese.
If you want to give an older child or children an introduction to cooking, this container is an ideal one to use. Its lid will stay securely on so your child won't spill boiling water on themselves, and they'll be able to hold onto the handles that never become warm to the touch. Plus, they won't need to go anywhere near the stove to make a delicious pasta or veggie dish.
Of course, you can boil pasta ( or vegetables ) on your stovetop, but this will take much longer than boiling them in the microwave, a definite disadvantage if you have impatient children. You'll also need an additional dish with small holes in it for straining purposes, while the Pasta Perfecto has a strainer built into its lid.
There are other microwave-safe dishes available besides the Pasta Perfecto, but most of these don't have built-in measuring holes or a built-in strainer. Some of them don't even have handles, making them hard to carry, and many are solid as opposed to translucent, which'll make it harder for you to observe the cooking process.
