Pasta Boat

This is one of those gadgets I use almost daily. I bought it when they first came out several years ago and have loved it ever since. You just throw in a specific amount of pasta (you can make a lot of pasta at one time, or just 2 servings), fill with water to a specific line and nuke for a specific amount of time. Pasta comes out perfect every time. You can make spaghetti or any type of pasta, including a box of Kraft mac and cheese.

It also comes with a rack so you can steam veggies, and that works great, too, and can hold a lot of veggies or just a little.

This, my air fryer, egg genie and 1 second chopper have made my (cooking) life so much easier.

No, but you could if you wanted. I usually add the salt to the pasta sauce.
