I Want One of These so Bad... lol

Pasta Boat Microwave Pasta Cooker (Amazon Link)

Product is $15 with $7 shipping off of the infomercial, but is about half that price on Amazon.

I am not doing a commercial here or anything, lol, I am truly interested in this product.

BUT, the reviews are VERY mixed.... Half think it's absolute crap, half think it's awesome.

This thing would be perfect for me to cook single serving amounts of pasta in... What do you guys think?

Garbage or bargain??

  7. I've never heard of AND 'as seen on TV' products being any good. Even the ones that seems impossible to screw up. It's been something that's always bugged me.

  8. The only as seen on TV product that has sold well has been that damn horrible bathrobe blanket combination that is the Snuggie.

    Although I'd buy it if the SnugWOW gag from Bill Maher's skits existed xD

  13. Garbage for the price if you ask me. Just find something perforated (like a cheese grater) and use it. Might be a little awkward, but I can't see paying that much for this thing. Then again, I don't make much spaghetti.

    And the lady is just down right annoying.

  14. Seems like it could work, but I'm fine cooking pasta the traditional way...

  15. Eh, what a gimmick. People are so lazy, they'll do anything to make the simplest of tasks easier. 'Seen on TV' makes all it's revenue from this one pitiful fact.

  17. I just use a plastic colander it works pretty well! The metal mesh strainers shred noodles. Great stuff mate!

  18. I just had stroganoff in a disposable container like this. I was impressed at how well the noodles cooked in it. Id say try it.

  23. Just...microwave the pasta in a large glass container, and strain it normally, like normal people do.

  24. Looks like a great way to drain your noodles.
