Einstein the Pasta Pot



I nicknamed this pot from Anolon: “ Einstein.”


Simply put, this is a pot with a diameter of 9.5 and a height of 5 inches. However, there is more to this than meets the eye.

When it first arrived with a truckload delivery of pots and pans from Anolon to film my TV show, I took this one aside for myself. 


The first thought I had was about the person at the company who came up with this design and how much of a genius they had to be to come up with it. Then I thought of the difficulty it must have taken to produce and install the secure lock system for the pot’s lid.

The pot was designed to lock its lid, and it has two spouts on the side to allow the pan to empty the cooking liquid without using a strainer. 


This rascal soon became the go-to pot for anything that needed parboiling in the prep work we did for all three of the “ Storyteller in the Kitchen” TV seasons.


I kept the pot for this long because, like a kid, I thought of it as a toy with a real cool trick! The condition, albeit “used,” Einstein is in excellent condition, and the lid locks in place beautifully. The nonstick surface makes it a breeze to clean. This is ideal for making soup or boiling pasta, or cooking vegetables. 


Einstein has been a great friend and a great pot in my collection. I held on to it for so long because I love the self-locking feature, and it always made me smile.


As my wife says, it is about time for this pot to find a new family that will love “Einstein” like I did. In my opinion, this is quite a remarkable little piece, designed and produced with the highest integrity. It will make an excellent addition to your own kitchen. Plus, I hope that it has a bit of me in it and it will make you smile every time you cook with it.
