It is that time of year again. The time of year where Thanksgiving and Christmas are upon us. We here at MetroKitchen have had a shipment of a new line of cookware just in time for the holidays. Lagostina Martellata cookware are beautiful. I was lucky enough to try the Langostina 6Qt. Pasta Pentola and the Langostina 8 inch fry pan.
The Lagostina Martellata 8 inch skillet is the perfect size for one person or for a small side dish for the family. I used this pan to saute some vegetables and they came out very well. This pan would also make a lovely gift for anyone. I also know that my boyfriend has used this to also make grilled cheese and it wasn’t to hard to clean. This line is to be hand washed only. I would never wash either of these in the dish washer except for the pasta pentola insert.
The pasta pentola pot is the perfect size for someone like me. This is my favorite out of the two. I have boiled pasta and potatoes in this pot. It is so easy and convenient to just lift the insert out to strain the pasta and potatoes. No need to dirty another strainer after boiling veggies or pasta. Just lift and you are done. As I mentioned before I highly recommend hand washing the copper pot but the insert is 100% safe to put in the dishwasher.
Lagostina Martella is compatible with gas, electric, halogen and ceramic cooking surfaces. Not induction compatible. It also comes with a life time warranty from Lagostina with normal use and proper care. Perfect for Thanksgiving and great for Christmas gifts! Also perfect to have on the stove during Thanksgiving giving the kitchen a gorgeous look.
