Durable Stainless Steel Construction

It is constructed with durable, 22 gauge stainless steel, so it won't discolor or react to acidic foods over time. The thick, 4 mm aluminum core is designed to withstand the rigors of everyday use in your commercial setting. Plus, its sandwich clad bottom and sides attract and evenly distributes heat, thus eliminating hot spots.

Welded, Side-Looped Handles

For a secure grip during transport, it features welded, side-looped handles to ensure a permanent connection between the handles and the pasta cooker. Since these handles are on both the inset and stock pot, it ensures long-lasting quality in high-traffic commercial settings.

3 Components

This pasta is ideal for making cooking pasta due to the three separate components. The stock pot is made to hold water while the inset fits tightly into the pot and the many holes allow the water into the inset. When the pasta is done, the inset lifts out to easily strain the water from the pasta. Then the cover is included to hold in the heat for gentle simmering.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

What's the difference between a riveted and a welded handle?
A riveted handle is connected by small metal pieces (called rivets) that are crushed between the handle and the pan body to attach them together. This type of handle is more common on copper and aluminum cookware.

For a handle to be welded, the metal must first be melted and then adhered to the pan body. This creates a strong bond that leaves little to no space in between, so bacteria and other food crumbs can’t collect and cause sanitation issues. Both are long lasting solutions for fry and sauce pan handles because they are durable and can withstand heat.

Customer Reviews

It is beyond convenient to have this pan to cook and drain pasta in. Carrying the old pot to the sink and having the lid slip while draining was always a risk of getting burned.


This pot is excellent quality, I cannot say enough good things. We use it most often for stock--it is SO much easier to lift the insert out, rather than pouring hot stock through a strainer. Even after hours of simmering stock, it is such a breeze to clean. It has held up so well.


Good aluminum pot and colander. Easily made 6 quarts of pasta every day. Great value and works as good as more expensive versions. Cleans good too.

First of all this pot is gorgeous I’m scared to scratch it. The dept of the slotted pot is close enough that it will get direct heat, but it’s not going to burn from the flames. Ive been able to cook a full dinner for the family with extra pasta as left overs .


The Vigor 12 Qt. pasta cooker is the best. It's made to last! I love the sturdy construction. We use it for than just pasta


This pot was given to us as a gift for our wedding. We used it so far to make mashed cauliflower. It worked just as expected, maintaining an even temperature, without any issues. It also seems pretty sturdy and well-made!


Excellent size to allow for easy handling and large quantity cooking. Thick pot bottom resists scorching and heats evenly. Very good price an quick delivery.


This pot works for more than just pasta! We use it for anything that would need straining or steaming! The quality isnt flimsy, its a nice quality.

from NERS on

This pot is great! I no longer have to worry about pouring out the pasta from a boiling pot into a colander. I have made lots of pasta in this and all I can say is that I can't live without this pot any more.


This is a rather big pot, and awesome quality for the value. Cooks my pastas very fast. I plan to buy a few more down the road.


Quality product. Bought specifically for use on induction cooktop and works like a charm. Large enough for quantity cooking, yet not too bulky to handle easily.

from Somethin' Sweet on
