Pasta Wave is a device that's been made to help users cook any kind of pasta quickly. The transparent, rectangular container is described as being made of food-grade, microwave-safe material, and each container also comes with a strainer and a lid that's been designed to create an airtight seal. Aside from pasta, it's specified that you'll be able to use this type of device to cook fresh or frozen vegetables in minutes, and each one comes with a recipe guide to help you out.
The cost of Pasta Wave is $19.99 plus $7.99 shipping for a total price of $27.98.
To get started with your Pasta Wave, fill the rectangular container with your chosen type of pasta, such as spaghetti, ravioli, or even angel hair pasta, until it's about half full. Since the container has an oblong, rectangular shape, it's unlikely that you'll need to break up any pieces of pasta in order to effectively do so.
Next, add some water to the container, while still making sure that it's not any more than half full. Otherwise, water could splash over the sides of the container while it's in your microwave, and too much water could also make your pasta soggy.
After there's both water and pasta in your container, put it in the microwave for a certain number of minutes. To determine how many minutes a particular type of pasta should be cooked for, you can consult your recipe guide. You could also use trial and error by simply setting the timer for three minutes and then checking the state of the pasta after that.
When your pasta's done cooking in your microwave, remove your Pasta Wave from the microwave and place the entire thing inside the included strainer. The strainer has the same shape as the cooking device, but it's a bit larger, so the cooking device should nest inside it nicely. Once it's nested inside, slowly lift it out of the strainer again in order to drain water off your pasta. When the draining is done, you'll be able to serve the pasta in the manner of your choosing.
With no more pasta left inside your Pasta Wave, it'll be time to put the container and the included strainer in your dishwasher for cleaning, or wash each piece gently with dish soap and water.
Each Pasta Wave is clear and transparent, so you'll always be able to see how much food and water you've got inside, along with how it looks. That means you may not have to pull as many pieces of food out as you would otherwise to determine if it's well-cooked or not.
The material used to make each container is purported to be durable and safe for use in the microwave, so it's unlikely that yours will ever lose its shape, even with frequent use. Along the same lines, this type of container will be unlikely to break if you drop it. As a result, you may be able to use the same device to rapidly cook pasta for years on end.
It's not uncommon for pasta that's cooked on the stove to get stuck to the bottom of the pot it's been cooked in. On the other hand, the Pasta Wave container has a non-stick inner surface, so pasta should quickly slide out of the container without any vigorous action from you and a cooking utensil. Due to the container's non-stick quality, you also won't have to scrub food residue out of the container for many minutes after you use it.
If you want to safely store some pasta in your refrigerator and eat it later, you may be happy to find out that each of these containers comes with a red airtight lid. Once you put the lid on your container, it'll create an airtight seal that'll help maintain the original flavor and texture of the pasta inside. You can also use the airtight lid on the container if you store it in your freezer, in order to stop the pasta from incurring freezer burn.
The Pasta Wave has been designed to cook all types of pasta, regardless of the size and shape of the noodles—even if additional ingredients, such as vegetables and cheese, have been added. This container is also an ideal thing to use if you want to cook small vegetables on their own. In fact, if you want to eat both pasta and veggies as part of your dinner, you can cook the pasta in the container, rinse it off, and then use it for the veggies. Just keep in mind that frozen veggies may take longer than fresh ones to cook.
The Pasta Wave container is fairly compact (smaller than most pots you'd use on the stove), so it'll fit in most microwave ovens. It won't take up a great deal of storage space in a kitchen drawer or cabinet, nor will it take up a lot of space in a vehicle if you transport it outside your home. This remains true even if you consider the strainer and lid that accompany it. Furthermore, since it'll remain fairly lightweight, even with pasta and water inside, the vast majority of adults and school-aged children will likely be able to carry it around.
Cooking pasta in the microwave is generally quicker than cooking it on a stovetop, but if you much prefer the taste of stovetop pasta, you may be disappointed by the Pasta Wave. It's not safe to cook with this device on a stovetop, in your oven, or anywhere else outside your microwave. If you were to place this device on your stovetop or in your oven and turn it on, the heat from the appliance would likely melt its material.
If you're trying to cut back on carbohydrates in order to lose weight or just improve your health in general, getting a device like this that'll enable you to cook pasta efficiently may hinder you. You will have the option of cutting vegetables into pasta-like strips or pieces and cooking them in this container, but some especially busy users may find this too time-consuming.
For optimum results, you should only use your Pasta Wave to cook various types of noodles and fresh or frozen vegetables. If you were to use it to cook other types of food, such as fruit or baked desserts, you may end up with poorly cooked food that's almost inedible. However, if you're not using your device for cooking purposes at the moment, you can snap the lid on and use it as a storage container for any type of food.
