I got this product as a birthday gift from a family friend. The product looks awesome and gives a luxurious feeling. My friend told me to use this product to make pastas and other vegetables. I found the product so easy to use. It comes with a lid which is locked and it does not fall off. The product is easy to handle and use and it does not get heated even if it is used for a long time. I could take it off the gas by just holding the handle. This was the first product that I used to make pasta but the pasta did not come out tasty but then on using this product further, I was able to cook good pastas and vegetables as well. I do not own this product now as I replaced it with another brand as this product was quite expensive to purchase. This product is quite easy to clean but needs to be washed thoroughly under water to keep it clean. It loses its color after sometime as it is made of stainless steel.
