Design by Patrick Jouin, 2007.
A pasta pot for a new way of cooking pasta by multi-starred French chef Alain Ducasse in collaboration with designer Patrick Jouin. This set includes a pot in multiply (AISI 430, aluminum and 18/10 stainless steel), one lid in 18/10 stainless steel, one spoon and one trivet in melamine. Every step of the cooking process is amalgamated: first you put the dry pasta in the Pasta Pot, sautéing lightly if you wish; then the various ingredients of whichever sauce you wish to make; then last comes water or broth, all at once or gradually, cooking everything together with the specially designed cover, stirring occasionally. In just a little more time than normally required to boil the pasta according to the classic method, your pasta with sauce is done. And preparation has required only a single pot, which you can bring to the table and serve directly from its special trivet. Pasta prepared by this method is not drained, and the intense taste and consistency have been likened to those of Risotto.

The Alessi company was founded by Giovanni Alessi in 1921 in Omegna, Italy. Giovanni, a talented sheet metal worker, produced items by hand for the table and the home out of copper, brass and nickel-silver. Giovanni's son Carlo, trained in industrial design, joined him at Alessi and was responsible for many of the designs produced in the 1930s through the mid 1940s.
During the war years, Alessi produced stars for uniforms and mechanical parts for Savoia Marchetti airplanes. After the war, thanks to an enormous demand for brass ladles for the U.S. army, the Alessis expanded the company and started mass production. Carlo's brother Ettore, who joined the company in 1945, was the first to bring outside designers to the company, such as the architects Carlo Mazzeri, Luigi Massoni and Anselmo Vitale. Since that time, the range of products offered by Alessi has expanded to include such items as office accessories and electrical appliances, in collaboration with a growing range of contemporary designers such as Jasper Morrison and Philippe Starck, all the while maintaining Alessi's commitment to design and quality.
