Excellent for pasta, seafood, soups, stews, and rice; this multi-cooker boils, steams and blanches. Simply lift out the deep pasta insert after the pasta has cooked. No need to pour hot water into a separate colander. This is much easier and safer. Set includes: 8qt stockpot, cover with Tri-Tone Whistle® knob, pasta colander, deep fry basket, and 4-3/8” steamer basket.
