I’m sure you’ve seen the commercial for the Pasta Express. They really make it look easy to use on the commercial. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one of these. I was able to find it at our local Wal-Mart for half the price as on TV. The only thing different was that the one sold on TV included a smaller version too.
You are suppose to be able to put your pasta in it, add boiling water and let it set for about 15 minutes. It’s suppose to save water and energy (whatever source for boiling water to cook the pasta) and time. What I found was that it took just about as much water, energy and time. By the time all was said and done, it was a just pain because of all the steps involved. Also another negative was that it is too tall to fit in the dishwasher.
In the end I’m just glad that I didn’t order the pricier version off TV. At least I saved half the cost plus the shipping and handling charge.
