This is a very well made pan and so functional for anyone who loves to make pasta and entertain. I got this as a gift for a couple being married in September. I know they will get a lot of use out of this Pot set. Buying this gift online was so easy. I didn't have go hunting down aisles and matching code numbers to make sure I got the right one. Wonderful service, and delivered right to their door too.
I registered for this because it looks beautiful and seems like a great pot. But every single time I've used it, I've tried 3 times, it has over flowed water everywhere when I try to remove the colander from the base. I think that it is possibly the shape of the base and that the space between it and the colander is not enough to allow the water to properly drain.
It is totally un-usable... I hope that I'm able to return it.
