As Italians, we don't simply eat pasta, we honor and celebrate it! That's the reason why we have created a specific pasta insert for your Ruffoni pot.

The pasta insert allows you to easily take all of your pasta out of the water when it's perfectly al dente, and drop it straight into the sauce. The starchy cooking water will not be lost to the kitchen drain this way, and you will be able to add it to your pasta sauce, making an extra creamy sauce that will stick to the pasta even better.

Entirely made of stainless steel, it is suitable for our Opus PrimaOpus CupraSymphonia Prima, and Symphonia Cupra, stockpots, and can be safely washed in the dishwasher.

Made in Italy.

Take the pasta out of the pot when it's perfectly al dente with the pasta insert, and drop it straight into your walnut sauce, amatriciana, or bolognese - ready and simmering in the chef pan, perhaps? Beautifully bind the pasta and its sauce by adding the starchy cooking water, a little bit at a time, and stir for a minute. Bring to the table and serve family-style with plenty of Parmigiano.

This is one of the best tips for truly Italian pasta: make the most of the cooking water, it will make any sauce richer and tastier!

The Ruffoni Accessories

Pots and pans might be the kitchen’s main stars, but accessories and specialty pieces play a crucial supporting role. Some, such as the pasta insert and the warming stand are born as additions to main pieces and allow discerning home chefs to get even more use and enjoyment out of their collections. Others, like our jars and olivewood tools, don't need anything else: a lovely gift idea for a Ruffoni lover but also an elegant collection starter, suitable for anyone. Finally, some specialty items like the zabaglione bowl and jam pot honor antique confectionery traditions that rely on copper’s fantastic thermal and chemical properties in the making of caramel, jams and preserves, whisking egg whites and creating zabaglione.

Use and Care For The Opus Cupra Collection

Taking Care of Your Ruffoni The Right Way


Recommended for use on gas stovetops, open flames (wood, charcoal, barbecue) and in the oven - electric cooktops also possible. Use a burner that is similar in diameter to the cookware, never heat the pot empty and do not exceed 230 C (450 F). To avoid scratching or dulling the polished surface, do not use knives, sharp kitchen tools, corrosive detergents and metal scouring pads.

Washing & Polishing

Hand-wash with a soft sponge and mild detergent, and dry immediately with a soft cloth.With use, copper develops a rich patina over time that many love and cherish. To restore a polished shine, use a good copper polish (like Ruffoni Cleaner) or salt with lemon juice/vinegar.

Silver Care

The silver-plated finial will naturally tarnish over time: use a silver-polishing cloth to restore its shine, or to polish more thoroughly remove from the lid by twisting the special screw - rotate the screw, not the finial, to prevent damage to the lid. Always hand-wash as dishwasher use would accelerate the silver tarnishing.
