I loved Lechters too. I love to look at gadgets and I often succumb to my addiction. I love to watch those infomercials.
Bought a Pasta Express and looked at it and put it away. Then yesterday I got it out. I was sick and tired of washing up the colander and pasta pot. Well, why not give it a chance. Guess what, it worked well. Forgot to salt the water and I didn't give it a stir, and thought it might be all stuck together, but it didn't. It has a sleeve to protect your hands from the hot water. I practiced with the lids to be sure I knew what I was doing. I like my pasta al dente and it was not over cooked, just right. All I had for clean up was one manageable container and two small lids.
I will use it again.
