The Pasta-set is one of those rare cases where we have made a genuine innovation in the ancient field of cooking instruments: the pasta strainer is inside the pot. The shape of this object was fascinating and mysterious, so much so in fact that we carried out a survey: around half of those interviewed didn't think it was a cooking pot, and offered wildly differing interpretations of its use. But we went ahead with it anyway, and it was a good thing we did: the Pasta-set became so popular that it had a deep influence on the market and won the Gold Medal at Bio 11 in Ljubljana in 1986, and unleashed a flood of imitations worldwide (there are at least a hundred).
