This piece of cookware gets its name from two Italian words “pentola” which means pot and as its name implies, it’s great for boiling pasta. That’s because of its high sides and the included colander, which you can just lift to drain without damaging the delicate starches. But, it’s also great for steaming or making foods that require straining small particles, like meat or veggie stocks. As part of our D3 Collection, this Pasta Pentola features a bonded tri-ply construction made with a responsive aluminum core pressed together with 2 layers of durable, stainless steel all the way around the surface, for fast and even heat. At 7 quarts, it accommodates a couple pounds of pasta and water. Once you’re done, cleaning is so easy you’ll forgo putting it in the dishwasher and opt for handwashing it, just to hold it a little longer. Like all our bonded cookware, it’s handmade in the USA at our Canonsburg, PA factory.
For fast and efficient cleanup, line ovenware with parchment paper before baking or roasting. Oven and broiler safe up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit.
Hand wash to maintain the ovenware's beauty. Be sure to wash before the first use and clean thoroughly between uses. Allow the ovenware to cool prior to cleaning. Rinse off any excess food with warm water. Soak in warm, soapy water, then wash with a sponge or soft cloth. Use a nylon scouring pad for more difficult cleaning. For tough to clean spots or marks, like burnt fat, protein shadows and charred food, clean with nonabrasive, non-chlorine cleanser, like All-Clad cookware cleaner, Bar Keeper's Friend* or Bon Ami*, Form a paste with the cookware cleanser and a small amount of water. Apply the paste using a soft cloth or sponge, rubbing in a circular motion. Rinse with warm water and dry immediately. Repeat if needed, allowing the paste to soak on the ovenware before scrubbing. Rinse with warm water and dry immediately to prevent spotting.
