About the Designer
With a brand new magazine, a talk show that aired in the fall of 2006, and a cookbook that has held the coveted #1 spot on the New York Times best seller list, Rachael's ascent is only beginning. Your individual style will be showcased through Rachael Ray's collection of vibrant, practical, and unique cookware. Growing up in a family with deep culinary traditions, Rachael Ray claims that cooking is a way of life that she was simply born into. "Everyone on both sides of my family cooks." Ray was exposed to a wide range of cooking techniques, from her maternal grandfather who grew and cooked everything that his family of 12 needed for sustenance, to her dad's family that was steeped in the food-rich traditions of Louisiana. "I was surrounded by all different styles of cooking and worked in the food service industry in just about every capacity you can imagine." After getting her feet wet in the gourmet world of food at Macy's Marketplace in New York, and after assisting in opening Agata & Valentina, Ray decided that the NYC lifestyle was exciting, but not what she wanted long term, so she moved back to the Adirondacks. Once upstate, Ray turned her job at Cowan & Lobel into a dual position as food buyer and chef, jobs that she loved. As a way to increase grocery sales during the holidays, Ray began a series of cooking classes, which quickly became a happening. The cooking course promising to teach thirty "30-Minute Mediterranean Meals" exploded in popularity and eventually led to a long-term relationship with the Food Network, hosting shows such as "Tasty Travels," "$40 a Day," "Inside Dish," and "30-Minute Meals." "My life has been a total accident -- a very happy, wonderful accident that I didn't and couldn't have planned," says Ray. Despite her growing celebrity she is determined to stay grounded and hold on to her down-to-earth values. Rachael Ray's collection of cookware makes the selection process simple by delivering products to you that offer unique colors, function, and value. The different cookware materials that will be found include hard-anodized aluminum, porcelain enamel nonstick, porcelain enamel cast iron, and commercial nonstick. When you choose Rachael Ray products for your family, you've made an investment for many years to come.

GREAT Spaghetti pot
Grandmamma from United States– Verified Buyer
This is the most versatile pot I have used. Takes more than a pound of spaghetti and boils to perfection. Great for pot roast on the stove top or other long cooking dishes. Can sautÃ in it. Handles are wonderful.

Great pot. It heats fast and stays hot -- never loses its boil when I drop the pasta in. The oval shape is genius -- Im morally opposed to breaking spaghetti, and I used to have to use a huge 12-quart pot to fit the pasta in whole. This is perfectly spaghetti-sized and needs less water, so it boils faster and is easier to carry. The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars is that its missing the one thing that would make it the perfect pasta pot -- a fitted colander insert. I bought a cheapo as-seen-on-tv plastic pasta boat and drilled holes in it, and it actually works great. But I wrote to the RR company and suggested they develop a matching insert. If you agree, write to them, too!
everything I expected
Suzie Buckingham from Kansas City
Its everything that I thought it would be and that Rachael Ray promised. I mostly bought it to cook spaghetti in, but have found that it has many other uses.
So Easy to Use

The size and shape of this pot are perfect for cooking those odd size pastas and vegetables. It is light in weight and easy to clean. Its a great multi purpose pot.
