Pasta Basket

Product number: 14653

For those who are looking to control their portion size, here’s a neat silicone tool that measures out a healthy 75g portion of dry pasta. Cleverly, you can hang it over the pan for cooking then just lift up to drain, ready for serving. Also handy for cooking different veg in the same pan. Folds flat when not in use.

( For 18 cm and 20 cm dia pan please use 1 Pasta Basket only. You can use up to 4 Pasta Baskets for a 24 cm dia pan.)

"Great Idea...could be executed better"

star star star star_border star_border

I seem to be one of the lucky few that has saucepans that these fit onto quite happily (I have quite deep,small, pans which are ideal). The biggest problem with these baskets is the 'grip' that holds the basket onto the edge of your pan is too close to the basket itself. If this was further up the handle it would fit more pans and you'd need less water! It works well, but the '1 serving' line is far too small (just 35g of fusilli pasta!), and mine doesn't seem to be finished well so will swap it. The theory of this item is excellent, but the execution is not what it should be.

"used once"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

I bought these for my gluten free pasta. It stuck to the basket. Hubby used ordinary pasta. Also stuck. Now have 2 baskets which I don't use. Dissapointed as usually lakeland products are great.

"Good idea but didn't work for me"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

Having seen the picture of a basket clipped to the edge of a pan, I thought this would solve my problem of needing to cook 2 small portions of different vegetables without mixing them, for my children. 1 basket would not sit level and fell in to the centre of the pan (a (Lakeland pan). In a larger pan, I was unable to to wedge 2 baskets together, to get them to sit level either. I am very disappointed. I shall not be using them again.

"Disappointing"

star star star_border star_border star_border

I wish I had read other peoples reviews before buying this product. I thought it would be a great product that would both help me cook correct portion sizes. To be fair it does do this, the trouble is with the height of the basket which means you must use a very large pan and a lot of water is needed. That is a lot of wasted water if you are only using one pasta basket! Needless to say I am very disappointed in this product.

"Waste of space"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

Like others I spotted this in store and bought 2 on impulse. Silly me! Too big for my largest pan, uses far too much water, yet restricts movement of pasta whilst cooking. Now just takes up valuable cupboard space. Not one of Lakeland's best ideas! Jean
